"I'm sorry, but there's no other word one can use but racist", CNN reported. Congresswoman Mia Love of IL, a fellow Republican and who is of Haitian descent, said that the president's comments were unkind, divisive, elitist, and fly in the face of the nation's values.

"He has not only insulted Africans, he has also insulted African-Americans", said Sylvester Odion Akhaine, associate professor of worldwide relations at Lagos State University in Nigeria.

Although a White House spokesperson on Thursday did not deny that he used the word "shithole", Trump insisted that was "not the language used" in a confusing Twitter rant on Friday. An email barrage to the White House?

"I can not imagine that in the history of [the Oval Office], that hallowed room, where the president of the United States goes to work every day, there has ever been a conversation quite like that".

What was the context for the comments?

The Washington Post reported the comments Thursday.

Trump was quoted in the Washington Post as having said: 'Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?' during a discussion about immigration.

"Not only does he think brown countries are shitholes, he thinks we're never going to know what he said?"

Mr Durbin said that when Mr Trump was told that the largest groups of immigrants with Temporary Protected Status (TPS) were from El Salvador, Honduras and Haiti, the president responded: "Haitians?"

"True", Kimmel replied. "The part of the poll he didn't mention is far more of the people polled believe President Obama is responsible for this strong economy, 49 to 40%".

Durbin added, "When the question was asked about Haitians ... he said, 'Hatians?"

The African Union (AU) said it was "frankly alarmed" by Mr Trump's statement.

"Brought shame and dishonor to the office of president of the United States", Green said at the proceeding. "I use those words advisably". The National Association for the Advancement of Coloured People (NAACP) accused the president of falling "deeper and deeper into the rabbit hole of racism and xenophobia", the BBC reported. So Graham and Durbin have been working tirelessly on a compromise bill that can win Republican and Democratic votes, and whether it can advance on Capitol Hill depends heavily on whether it receives Trump's blessing. "& End #AnchorBabies, too", Rep. Steve King tweeted. "Trump is unworthy to speak of them!"

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 quake.

Trump's contemptuous description of an entire continent startled lawmakers in the meeting and immediately revived charges that the president is racist.

Botswana's foreign ministry summoned the US ambassador in protest and called the comments "highly irresponsible, reprehensible and racist". This requires a merit-based system that attracts talented, freedom-loving individuals from across the globe, whether they are from Haiti, Norway or anywhere else, ' he wrote. During the meeting, according to several sources, Trump was flabbergasted by the inclusion of these countries in the deal.

Now the 71-year-old is facing the wrath of Hollywood.
