Trump later tweeted Friday morning that he never said anything derogatory. Associated Press White House reporter Jonathan Lemire said no one at the White House denied "that he used these vulgar terms to describe these immigrants". "Why don't we get more people from Norway?'"
After an emergency session to weigh Trump's remarks, the African Group of United Nations ambassadors said it was "concerned at the continuing and growing trend from the USA administration toward Africa and people of African descent to denigrate the continent and people of color".
"But they have no confirmation yet", Saati said. Never said 'take them out.' Made up by Dems. ". Like other nations that have merit-based immigration, President Trump is fighting for permanent solutions that make our country stronger by welcoming those who can contribute to our society, grow our economy and assimilate into our great nation".
Lemon played a tape of Trump's proclamation announcement, made only one day after reports of the presidentcalling African nations "sh*thole countries". "When the question was raised about Haitians, for example, we have a group that have temporary protected status in the United States because they were the victims of crises and disasters and political upheaval. So, it's not just President Trump who doesn't understand that", added Young.
Botswana said it had summoned the U.S. ambassador to that country to "express its displeasure" and had asked him whether Botswana "is regarded as a "sh**hole" country".
El Salvador, also facing an end to protected status for its 200,000 citizens living in the United States, sent a formal letter of protest to the USA government over the comments. The president said he has a wonderful relationship with Haitians and suggested future meetings probably should be recorded.
