'Indefensible': Haitian-American Rep. on Trump's Remarks

Nigeria's government on Monday summoned a representative of the the USA ambassador to explain reported remarks by President Donald Trump that immigrants from Africa and Haiti come from "shithole countries", the foreign ministry said. He's been called "vile and racist" by a Democratic Senator who was in the meeting where Trump made the comment, but the President himself insists, "I am not a racist".

"Nah, I'm not a racist".

Trump was immediately lambasted and denounced for the comments, including by the Haitian government, which said the president's comments reflected a "racist view of the Haitian community", according to the Associated Press.

"Twitter was filled with hatred toward me, wishing me violence", the Kentucky Republican told Fox News' "Fox & Friends".

President Akufo-Addo also reacted on Saturday describing the language used by the American leader as "extremely unfortunate" adding his nation was not a "shithole country". Trump's comments also came on the verge of the eighth anniversary of a devastating quake that levied much of Haiti and destroyed large amounts of its public infrastructure.

"We are ready, willing and able to make a deal on DACA, but I do not think the Democrats want to make a deal...."

Shockingly, Trump remained unapologetic in his claim of wanting more immigrants from countries like Norway.

USA senator Richard Durbin, who was in the White House meeting, said the President had used the term.

The US president is reported to have questioned why the US would want to have immigrants from "shithole countries" such as Haiti and African nations. Rand Paul, R-Ky, said it's "unfair" to draw conclusions and to paint the president in that light.

Trump was elected to the White House partly on a promise to be hard on immigration.

Also on Friday, the United Nations human rights office rejected Trump's comments, referring to them as "racist". "Never said 'take them out.' Made up by Dems".

"We're gonna see what happens", he said. He has denied making the statements, as well as the ensuing accusations that he is racist. "They weren't made", Trump told reporters. "And I'm telling you it's a gross misrepresentation", Perdue said on ABC's This Week.

"The US deeply respects the people of #Africa & values partnerships w/ them".

Efforts to extend the program are further complicated because it could make a funding bill to avert a government shutdown due Friday more hard. But people felt that once in the White House he would imbibe lessons on proper behaviour. "They are all talk and no action", Trump wrote on Twitter on January 13.
