On natural disaster anniversary, Miami Haitians call Trump 'racist' for 'shithole' remark

"The President is in excellent health", said Jackson after he conducted the first physical exam of the 45th President of the United states.

The document stressed that Cuba joins the strong rejection that these statements have arouse around the world, and expresses its most heartfelt solidarity with all the offended countries.

Interestingly, this comes after he reportedly referred to the immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries as "s--holes", in an immigration meeting at the White House earlier.

Others who attended the meeting have said that Trump questioned why the USA would accept immigrants from "shithole countries" like Haiti or those in Africa instead of places like Norway, whose prime minister he had met the day before.

"If confirmed these are shocking and shameful comments from the President of the United States". The answer is that Norwegians have a stable, democratic country characterised by its reasonable attitudes, and would be wary of moving to any country that would vote in Mr Trump as president.

Of course, the president denies using the word, only owning up to using "tough language" during the immigration talks.

"In the course of (Trump's) comments, he said things that were hate-filled, vile and racist", the IL senator said Friday.

"I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians", the president said. What Trump did do, they said, was "call out the imbalance in our current immigration system, which does not protect American workers and our national interest".

His remarks reportedly left the assembled politicians "taken aback", the paper said, with Lindsey Graham, the Republican senator for SC, and Richard Durbin, Democratic senator for IL, among those in the room.

While meeting with lawmakers, President Trump rejected a bipartisan proposal on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

Durbin said Trump specifically asked, "Do we need more Haitians?" before launching into a diatribe about African immigration.

He said it was a necessary change, even though the United States had been linked to Grosvenor Square for more than 200 years.

Activists marched from the Toussaint L'Ouverture Monument to the Little Haiti Cultural Center waving signs that said "President Trump is a racist!", "Respect Haiti", and "We will not forget". African nations and El Salvador -also said to have been targeted in Trump's comments on immigration - have had plenty to say.

"House Speaker Paul Ryan said the vulgar language was "very unfortunate, unhelpful".

Outrage continues to grow over comments President Donald Trump denies he made about African countries and Haiti.

"I don't think that he will acknowledge that he said it, let alone apologize for it", Doron said.

She concluded with a stern message for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other members of Congress: "Do what you were elected to do".

In September 2016, Mr. Trump's personal doctor, Harold N. Bornstein, said Mr. Trump took low-dose aspirin and a statin drug to help lower his cholesterol. In November, Secretary of Homeland Security Elaine Duke announced termination of the protections for Haitians, saying, "Significant steps have been taken to improve the stability and quality of life for Haitian citizens, and Haiti is able to safely receive traditional levels of returned citizens".
