The 55-country African Union (AU) has demanded that U.S. president Donald Trump apologise for saying the USA should not accept immigrants from "shithole" African nations like Haiti, The Hill reported on Saturday (Jan 13).

Africans were also shocked on Friday to find President Donald Trump had finally taken an interest in their continent.

The statement from the African Union also followed a slew of worldwide condemnations.

The president said at the White House that "love was central" to the slain civil rights leader.

The African Union said it was "frankly alarmed" by Trump's comments.

Haitians reacted with outrage Friday to reports of Mr. Trump's remarks. Durbin thought it would just be the senators and Trump in the room.

All 54 African ambassadors to the United Nations decried Donald Trump's reported remarks as "outrageous, racist, and xenophobic" on Friday, a day after USA media reported that Trump had referred to African states, Haiti, and El Salvador as "s***hole countries".

The Washington Post reported Wednesday that Trump used the word "shithole" during a meeting on immigration reform to refer to African countries and Haiti.

Donald Trump has been forced to deny calling Central American and African nations "s***holes", as he is branded a "racist" and faces fierce backlash.

Haitians and Africans in Maryland say they don't think they should be written off.

Durbin added, "When the question was asked about Haitians. he said, 'Haitians?" Trump said, according to people familiar with the meeting. "There is no other word you can use but "racist". When I mentioned that fact to him, he said, 'Haitians?

And Haiti's US ambassador told the BBC that Haitians are not "simply immigrants who come here to take advantage of the U.S".

It is alleged Trump questioned why the U.S. would accept more people from Haiti and "sh**hole countries". "Never said 'take them out'".

He has since denied using the reported language.

Three people were briefed on the Oval Office conversation. Democratic Senator Dick Durbin of IL, who was present at the meeting, said the reports were accurate and that "shithole was the exact word used once not twice but repeatedly".

Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, a Republican from Florida, criticized Mr. Trump's comments about Haitians. Apparently, he was so frustrated with the U.S.'s lottery system that he demanded to know why other Americans would want people coming over from "shithole countries", like Haiti, El Salvador and various African nations.
