"Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?"

"The letter was meant to demonstrate that President Trump's apparent disdain and disregard toward Africa is not shared by those who have had the privilege of working in and across Africa on behalf of the United States government and the American people". South African diplomats met United States embassy's Charge d'Affaires on Monday and raised concern over the unfortunate remarks by Mr Trump.

During Thursday's briefing, State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert said the president has denied using the vulgar word that has been widely reported. "This president has been clear that he did not make this remark".

Nauert said she would refer to the comments as "alleged comments" because it has not been proven Trump used the vulgarity.

The alleged insult has not gone down well. "You had others in the room who have said he did not make this remark". Neighbouring Botswana was the first African nation on 12th January to condemn President Trump's remarks and summoned the US Ambassador to Botswana to express its displeasure and called on SADC and the African Union to do the same.

On Wednesday, in an apparent rejection of Trump's reported comments, U.S. Ambassador to Zimbabwe Harry Thomas, Jr. said that his country welcomed Africans as both immigrants and visitors.

The Zimbabwean government said it joined fellow African countries and others in rejecting "this unfortunate characterization of our peoples and countries".

"We know that respectful engagement with these countries is a vital part of protecting our own national interests".

According to reports, Trump decried immigration from "shithole countries", like Haiti and African nations, questioning why the US should admit people from such countries over immigrants from countries like Norway.

Meanwhile, Reuters reports that President Trump, asked whether he wanted more immigrants from Norway, said on Tuesday that he wanted the United States to draw immigrants from nations around the world. He also apparently said he wants to exclude Haiti from an immigration reform deal.
