After lawmakers raised the issue of protections for immigrants from African nations, Haiti and El Salvador, the president reportedly demanded to know why the United States should accept immigrants from "shithole countries", rather than - for instance - wealthy and overwhelmingly white Norway.

While the White House did not deny the controversial remarks, Trump tweeted on Friday that he never said "anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country". Trump later denied using the vulgar phrase, but said he used "tough" language at the meeting.

A few hours earlier he wrote: "The language used by me at the Daca meeting was tough, but this was not the language used". It is scary to think that people would perceive us in a threatening fashion.

Al Sharpton may have won the award for reaching the pinnacle of hypocrisy in his attack on President Trump for his now infamous "sh*thole" comment.

United made a shock £25m move for Alexis Sanchez earlier this week after months of us all assuming that his move to Manchester City was an all but certainty.

A source familiar with the meeting told CNN's Jake Tapper the President did not refer to Haiti as a "shithole" country but Trump did ask why the USA needs more Haitians and pushed to "take them out" of the deal. The Associated Press, however, reported that Trump privately defended the alleged comment, arguing it wasn't racist but "straightforward". First, he insisted his senseless wall be part of an immigration deal and now Trump is spouting vile profanities about Haitian and African immigrants from the Oval Office. ". 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".

"Many people have been surprised from what they heard from Trump, but not me", said Syverain, a member of the Haitian American Community Church in San Jose.
