When finding out that the program would affect people from Haiti, Trump said "Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?" Donald isn't a racist.' Or just people who don't know him: 'I don't think, I think it was taken out of context, I'm not sure.' How many examples do you need of this?

"If the Republican leadership has a better alternative, bring it forward", Durbin said.

Later on Friday morning, the president tweeted that he used tough language in the meeting, but those words are not what he used, he says.

According to an article by Reuters, Trump is said to have referred to some as "shithole countries", as per two sources familiar with the comments.

President Donald Trump has maintained his stance about El Salvador and African continent, which he described as "high crime countries which are doing badly".

Representative Steny Hoyer of Maryland, a senior Democratic lawmaker, said that Trump's comments were "racist and a disgrace".

Congressional Black Caucus leader Cedric Richmond said that Trump's comments are "proof" that his Make America Great Again slogan really means "Make America White Again". He said the story was "made up by Dems" and added there was "unfortunately, no trust!"

Republican Rep. Mia Love of Utah, the daughter of Haitian immigrants, said Trump's comments were "unkind, divisive, elitist and fly in the face of our nation's values".

In addition, the president singled out Haiti, telling lawmakers that immigrants from that country must be left out of any deal, these people said.

Trump had denied using the word "shithole".

He made the comments whiles meeting a bipartisan group of Senators at the White House on Thursday. The president also asked if Haiti could be left out of the plan, reports the New York Times, "Why do we want people from Haiti here?" Last year, the Trump administration announced it is also ending temporary protected status for tens of thousands of Haitian, Nicaraguan and Sudanese immigrants living in the United States.

On CNN, Blow went on to note that Trump's comments can not be divorced from the policies he enacts as president.
