"Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people", spokesman Raj Shah said in a statement issued after The Washington Post first reported Trump's remarks.

Pierre Labossiere was aghast when, during immigration discussions in the Oval Office Thursday, President Donald Trump questioned why the US should admit immigrants from Haiti and Africa, calling them "shithole countries".

He also said that the Democrats "made up" the story, claiming that he referred to Haiti as a "sh*thole country", emphasizing that he had never said "anything derogatory about Haitians".

"We want changes to chain migration, and not to a very small percentage of the population and how it affects chain migration", said Marc Short, the White House legislative affairs director. "I have not read one of them that's inaccurate". Mr Trump said after being presented with a proposal to restore protections for immigrants from the countries in question.

"When Trump uttered his vulgar attacks yesterday against Haitians and Africans, he exposed the white supremacy at the core of US policy towards Haiti", the statement said.

The presidents conflicting positions on immigration and his repulsive remarks place a heavier burden on members of Congress to negotiate their own deal and to stand against the presidents language.

"If confirmed, these are shocking and shameful comments from the President of the United States".

A civil rights icon who also served as Ambassador to the United Nations spoke to News 4 about disparaging comments President Donald Trump reportedly made about Haiti and African countries.

Trump denies using the term. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!", the President tweeted. "I'm sorry but there's no other word one can use but 'racist'".

"This is very much a vile and disgusting comment coming from the president of the United States", he added. Republican leaders have said an immigration bill must include other Republican goals, like funding for increased border security.
