In a tweet Friday, Trump called the language he used Thursday "tough" but denied using the term "s***hole" while meeting with lawmakers about immigration policies. He called a proposal made at the immigration meeting "a big setback for DACA".

Mr Trump has denied using that language, but others present said that he did.

"Shithole? Thought they said he was so impressed with us just last September?" "But I've never met a Haitian who isn't strong".

The president implied Friday morning on Twitter that maybe he should start recording meetings because there is no trust.

As Trump shook hands with people at the event, reporters took the moment to ask him questions related to his remarks about Haiti and African countries.

In Haiti, on the eighth anniversary of a devastating natural disaster that killed about 220,000 people, the government also summoned the top USA diplomat for an explanation, while the Haitian ambassador to Washington called for an apology.

United Nations officials and government ministers from the countries mentioned have condemned Trump, describing them as "racist".

"Very very sad, I was so shocked, I'm still shocked, I can't believe he said that", says Weedor Mcdoweel, originally fromlLiberia whose lived in the U.S for almost seven years.

In a similar vein, spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Rupert Coleville, said, "you can not dismiss entire countries and continents as "shitholes", whose entire populations who are not white, are therefore not welcome".

The U.S. government has faced a sustained diplomatic backlash over the past few days due to the comments, as well as widespread criticism from civil society.

Harris Rosen, president of Rosen Hotels, said one third of his staff is from Haiti.

Former Haitian Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe tweeted, "SHAME ON TRUMP!"

The US government should remember the good deeds of Salvadorans, such as "their contribution to the reconstruction of the Pentagon after the awful terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, as well as their efforts during reconstruction of New Orleans after devastating hurricane Katrina,"states the official note of protest issued by El Salvador's government".

The mission demanded a retraction of the statement and an apology from the United States leader.

In other words, we feel there is misinformation as to who we are as a community.

Africans were "partners with America on behalf of the future we want for all of our children".

A year earlier, Bornstein said in a December 2015 letter: "If elected, Mr Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency".
