  • S--HOLE COUNTRIES’ President Trump is under fire for comments on immigrants from Haiti El Salvador and African nations. According to reports Trump asked ‘Why are we having all these people from s--hole countries come here

Republican Sens. Tom Cotton and David Perdue, who've been close allies to the president on the issue of immigration, were in a White House meeting with him Thursday when Trump, according to sources, expressed frustration with people coming to the us from "sh-hole countries".

The president also asked why the United States would allow more immigrants from Haiti and Africa rather than countries like Norway.

David Perdue, Republicans who've been close allies to the President on the issue of immigration, were also in the meeting but issued a carefully worded statement after Trump tweeted Friday morning that the description of his remarks was not accurate.

However Trump later insisted that he "never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country". He said Trump used the most vulgar term "more than once". In a tweet, Trump denied the report, saying "this was not the language used".

The US ambassador to Panama, John Feeley, resigned his position, apparently in protest at Mr Trump's reported comments.

When it came to talk of extending protections for Haitians, the U.S. president said: "We don't need more Haitians".

Democrats have dismissed Trump's denial of the offensive comments, with Senator Dick Durbin, who attended the meeting, disputing Trump's account. He also reportedly said Haitians "all have AIDS", according to New York Times.

Trump's comments were immediately denounced as racist and xenophobic at home and overseas, by the United Nations human rights office and politicians from the countries named. "I can say the same about other nations in Central America and Africa swept up in his epithet". The president said he has a wonderful relationship with Haitians and suggested future meetings probably should be recorded.

A White House spokesman defended Trump's position on immigration without directly addressing Trump's remarks.

His promise is now in question after the comments allegedly made during a private immigration meeting with lawmakers. "Take them out", he said.

As Haitian-Americans gathered later in the day in Little Haiti to commemorate the 8-year anniversary of the devastating natural disaster that hit Haiti, many expressed their outrage about the president's comment. "I want to see the tape".
