US President Donald Trump said Tuesday he wants immigrants to come to the United States "from everywhere", according to participants at a White House meeting - a remark in stark contrast with his alleged denunciation of immigration from "shithole countries" last week.

Special status given to about 59,000 Haitian immigrants, that has protected them from deportation following the 2010 quake, will end next year following a Trump administration ruling last month. She said "others in the room were also using tough language".

"The president hasn't said he didn't use strong language", press secretary Sarah Sanders said.

Even as the derogatory comments by Donald Trump provided oxygen for late night commentators, questions have been raised on whether Trump has made it even more hard for legislators to come up with a bipartisan compromise that would lead to immigration law reform.

"Senator Dicky Durbin totally misrepresented what was said at the DACA meeting", Mr Trump tweeted Monday, using a nickname to needle the IL senator.

African UN envoys issued a statement saying they are "extremely appalled at, and strongly condemns the outrageous, racist and xenophobic remarks attributed to the President of the United States of America". Exactly 50% of independents said Trump's comment was racist.

A Star Wars Story
With just over four months until its theatrical release, the details surrounding the plot of Solo: A Star Wars Story are still surprisingly scarce.

Her remarks come after the president faced vast scrutiny for reportedly describing several nations as "shithole countries" during a meeting on immigration reform with lawmakers last week. "I am the least racist person you have ever interviewed".

Trump has been calling for the merit-based immigration system, of which people from countries like India could be a major beneficiary, to reduce overall immigration to the US.

Previously, South African politicians also expressed their concern over Trump's remarks. Trump wrote, "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians".

"On MLK Day, New York City will take a stand for our sisters and brothers from Haiti, throughout Africa, El Salvador and other nations in the diaspora that have become targets of President Trump's hatred and bigotry".

Democrats are demanding protections for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals recipients in exchange for border security funding that could include money for Trump's promised border wall. "And I'm telling you it's a gross misrepresentation", Perdue said on ABC's "This Week".
