Trump is a racist and Republicans who won't denounce him are too

"I think it fundamentally poisons the relationship with numerous countries", Peter Lewis, director of African Studies at Johns Hopkins University, told CNN.

"Instead of remembering the victims, we are dealing with a derogatory and racist comment", said Ingrid Francoeur Adams, who was born and raised in Haiti. "Take them out." The White House official, reportedly also said that Trump suggested he would be open to protect immigrants from Asian countries because they help the country economically.

Miami's Haitian-American community leaders planned to spend Friday remembering the hundreds of thousands of lives lost in the horrific 2010 quake on the island.

South Africans went on the social media to vent their outrage over Trump's remarks.

The president has apparently denied the reported comments, stating on Twitter that "the language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used".

"Haitians fought along U.S. soldiers in the Revolutionary War, and we continue to be great contributors to American society", Altidor added.

President Trump uses profanity when talking about certain countries and it's got a lot of people talking, including Georgia State Senator Harold Jones.

Democratic senator Dianne Feinstein called the comments "beneath the dignity of the presidency" and said Mr Trump's desire to see more immigrants from countries like Norway was "an effort to set this country back generations by promoting "a homogeneous, white society".

Trump has faced intense backlash for calling Haiti, El Salvador and African nations "shithole countries" during an Oval Office meeting on immigration this week.

Samantha Power, who served as USA ambassador to the United Nations under President Obama, shared the ambassadors' statement on Twitter.

He said Mr Trump used the most vulgar term "more than once".

But Trump is not going to lead America or the rest of the world to a better place.

United State's President Donald Trump is not new to controversies, but his "shithole" remarks against African countries seem to have ruffled many feathers across the region as leaders come out to condemn and demand for apology.

No tape is expected to be released as the comment was allegedly made in a private meeting, and it's unclear whether a recording even exists. President, are you a racist?' she asked in a second attempt. "However, in the context of the president's comments - and the behavior and language that preceded them - several anchors and reporters offered unusually blunt labels and uncharacteristically personal opinions".
