President Trump referred to African nations and Haiti as "shithole" countries on January 11, when discussing restoring protections for certain immigrant groups.

Haiti and Haitians, targets of a separate anti-immigration drive by the Trump administration, were also subject of derogatory remarks by the President, according to the first report on the issue by the Washington Post.

The United Nations on Friday slammed US President Donald Trump´s reported description of African nations and Haiti as "shithole" countries as "shocking and shameful", and "racist".

Trump then suggested that the United States should instead bring more people from countries like Norway, whose prime minister he met Wednesday.

The president met on Thursday with Senators Lindsey Graham, Republican of SC, and Richard J. Durbin, Democrat of IL.

Trump's comments came as Durbin was presenting details of the compromise plan that included providing $1.6 billion for a first installment of the president's long-sought border wall. The enormous damage that the 7.0-magnitude quake caused to the island's infrastructure and economy led to the designation for Haitians of a USA immigration protection known as Temporary Protected Status.

Also on Friday, Trump denied making the "shithole" and Haitian comments in an early-morning Tweet.

"I haven't seen anyone so brazenly institutionalizing bigotry and racism", said Leo Mulbah, former president of the Liberian Community of Georgia.

"With the statement that he made, it was very clear to us that there is a racial basis for those decisions, even going so far as racist", Labossiere said.

Dr. Rodney Charitable is a design engineer in the defense industry and a Haitian immigrant who said the portrayal of his country is offensive.

Durbin said, "We have seven days and the clock is ticking". "Probably should record future meetings".

Former President Bill Clinton responded Friday to President Trump's reported comments questioning why the USA was accepting immigrants from "s--hole" countries, allegedly made in reference to Haiti and some countries in Africa and Central America.

'Following comments by the President, I said my piece directly to him yesterday, ' Graham said in a statement.

Republican Sens. David Perdue of Georgia and Tom Cotton of Arkansas, who attended the meeting, said in a statement that they "do not recall the president saying these comments specifically".

Pascale Marra said the remark goes against a long history - more than 200 years of friendship and cooperation between the US and Haiti, which share the same democratic values. Day, which is Monday.

"That's when he used these vile and vulgar comments, calling the nations they come from *****".

He went on to talk about he witnessed in Haiti, stating the nation's people had "been through more, they've withstood more, they've fought back against more injustice than our President ever has".
