Democratic Sen. Richard Durbin of IL on Friday said Trump had indeed made the comments about 's***hole countries'.

Asked about the remarks Thursday, White House spokesman Raj Shah said, "Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people". The term suggests dirty or very poor.

"We must focus on how best to secure our borders, protect our national security, and find a way to support the people under DACA who know only the United States to be their home", he said. The president met with Norway's prime minister Wednesday. Plus, the White House has yet to officially deny the reports in a statement - and Hillary Clinton has plenty to say about it.

Trump later denied using the vulgar language during the meeting. The details of the proposal have not been publicised, but the President said: "The so-called bipartisan DACA deal. was a big step backwards". Many advocates said the comments shed light on why the Trump administration last fall stripped Haitians of Temporary Protected Status - specialized protection granted to people from countries experiencing significant turmoil - in which it would be unsafe for its citizens to return.

Paul Ryan, the Speaker of the House and after Trump and Mike Pence, the third-most powerful Republican. rebuked the president for the words calling them "very unfortunate" and "unhelpful". The senator spoke with reporters on Friday in Chicago, Illinois.

"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. I reject them and condemn them vigorously.

The African Union (AU) told the Associated Press it was "frankly alarmed" by Trump's comment.

"In addition, the president singled out Haiti, telling lawmakers that immigrants from that country must be left out of any deal, these people said".
