President Trump reportedly refers to Haiti, African nations as s***hole countries

"I honestly can not imagine the pain that those Oval Office comments are causing for immigrants and people of color everywhere", Schatz said, on the social media network. The White House denied Trump made those remarks.

This week the Trump administration announced that it was ending temporary legal protective status for 200,000 immigrants from El Salvador who have lived in the United States for almost two decades.

In a statement, the White House did not explicitly deny that Trump called Haiti and African countries "sh*tholes".

The sources told the Times that Trump asked if Haitians could be left out of the deal. This led to his "sh*thole" comment.

Although Khorana's exact date of birth is not known, the Nobel Prize website lists it as January 9, 1922. Four years later, he announced that he was able to function an artificial gene within a bacterial cell.

Spokesman Raj Shah released a statement on the controversy shortly after The Washington Post published the reports, stating that Mr Trump intends to "fight for the American people".

Singling out Haiti, he added: "Why do we need more Haitians?" Mr. Trump said, the Post reported, citing people familiar with the meeting.

Trump's comments about immigrants sparked shock and inspired jokes on Twitter.

Republican congressional reaction trickled in Thursday night, with some statements critical of the reported language calling on the White House to immediately provide an "explanation" or additional "context". The White House slammed the U.S. president for his remarks but issued a statement saying Trump supports immigration policies that welcome "those who can contribute to our society".

The President "will always reject temporary, weak and unsafe stopgap measures that threaten the lives of hardworking Americans, and undercut immigrants who seek a better life in the United States through a legal pathway", they added.

The comments disturbed lawmakers during the meeting, and came as Trump discussed steps on immigration reform with them. "This behavior is unacceptable from the leader of our nation", said Rep. Mia Love (R-Utah), whose parents came to America from Haiti. Orrin Hatch said he wants an explanation from the President about his comments.

The meeting was meant to hammer out an immigration deal that would extend protections and offer a path to citizenship to DACA recipients, but also include money for border security and reforms to some immigration programs.

Trump made the remark in a meeting as he was being briefed by Sen. Senators Lindsey Graham and Richard J. Durbin later proposed slashing the visa lottery program by 50 percent, the Post reported.
