Catholic leaders condemn Trump remarks about Haiti, Africa

"I find President Trump's reported comments about Haiti, El Salvador and African countries unacceptable and inaccurate", Siplin said.

He did not say specifically what Trump said that caused him to respond, but his defense of American values make clear that the gist was Trump's stunning comments that drew wall-to-wall media coverage Friday.

"We should bring in more people from places like Norway", says Durbin.

It is instructive that the White House did not deny the initial news reports.

"I can not believe that in the history of the Oval Office any president has spoken the words that I have personally heard the President speak yesterday", said Durbin, clearly appalled.

Trump later tweeted that the language he used was tough, but not the language being reported.

The President ignored shouted questions about whether he used vulgar language during an oval office meeting about immigration.

The White House did not originally deny Trump made the "shitholes" comment, but the president himself tweeted Friday morning that "this was not the language used".

His promise is now in question after the comments allegedly made during a private immigration meeting with lawmakers.

"Language like that shouldn't be heard in locker rooms and it shouldn't be heard in the White House", Ms. Ros-Lehtinen said in a Twitter post.

The senators are working to codify the protections in DACA. And for all of you who over the last few years who have uttered that exhausted, lazy, uninformed, uneducated, ignorant, response of calling me and others who point out racist behavior "racist"?

The Botswana Government has also enquired from the US Government through the Ambassador, to clarify if Botswana is regarded as a "shithole" country given that there are Botswana nationals residing in the US, and also that some of Botswana may wish to visit the US. The deal was a nonstarter for conservative senators at the meeting and also for Trump.

The on-again, off-again effort to decide the future of nearly 800,000 undocumented youths in the United States swung wildly from Thursday to Friday, with one of the top Republicans in Congress calling President Donald Trump's reported use of an expletive to disparage some immigrants' home countries "unfortunate" and "unhelpful".

"Part of what makes America so special is that we welcome the best and brightest in the world, regardless of their country of origin", Hatch added.

"Congress needs to be more mature than the president of the United States", Rep. Darren Soto, a Florida Democrat, told BuzzFeed News.

On Friday, Mr Trump ignored press questions about the issue as he signed a proclamation declaring a holiday in honour of civil rights hero Martin Luther King Jr - as presidents do every year. The President and all those attending the meeting know what I said and how I feel.
