Trump reportedly questioned why the USA would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "s***hole countries" in Africa rather than places like Norway, as he rejected a bipartisan immigration deal.

At first the White House did not deny that the remark was made.

Jorel Francois holds a sign that reads, 'President trump is a Bigot!' as he joins with others to mark the 8th anniversary of the quake in Haiti and to condemn President Donald Trump's reported statement about immigrants from Haiti, Africa and El Salvador on January 12, 2018 in Miami. Richard Durbin of IL, the lone Democrat present in the Oval Office at the time, said Trump's denial was false and the president had said things that were "hate-filled, vile and racist". Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), according to CNN. Norway's prime minister had just visited the White House Wednesday.

Trump denied in a pair of tweets on Friday that he made the comment, but referred to Haiti as a "very poor and troubled country".

The Trump administration announced late previous year that it would end a temporary residency permit program that allowed almost 60,000 citizens from Haiti to live and work in the United States following a devastating 2010 natural disaster.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was equally critical of her onetime rival in last year's presidential campaign and the USA ambassador to Panama has tendered his resignation amid the ongoing scandal. Never said 'take them out.' Made up by Dems.

This would leave open the possibility of Vice President Mike Pence invoking the 25th amendment, thus setting up a Constitutional crisis that could land Trump out of the White House with sufficient Congressional approval.

The tentative deal also addresses border security, including a border wall, the diversity visa lottery and chain migration, in which United States green-card holders can sponsor other family members for permanent residence in the country.

Asked about Mr Trump's comments, White House spokesman Raj Shah said: "Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people".

"There is no question in my mind he's a racist", Pinkett, who won season four of Trump's reality show, told MSNBC's Joy Reid. 'The President and all those attending the meeting know what I said and how I feel.

Larrieux, one of the more than 20,000 Haitian tps recipients in South Florida who now faces deportation, said she had given candidate Trump the benefit of the doubt.
