Prominent Kenyan commentator Patrick Gathara told AFP that Trump's words were nothing new.
The comment was "clearly" racist, said Ebba Kalondo, spokeswoman for AU chief Moussa Faki.
Trump earned national political prominence by promoting the falsehood that Barack Obama, America's first African-American president, was not born in the United States. What this episode also does is shatter the endless euphemisms and dissembling that Trump and his allies have employed to obscure a related truth: That the nationalism at the core of Trumpism is heavily driven by a reactionary backlash to the current ethnic and racial mix of the US population - it is white nationalism, despite all the what-me-racist protestation to the contrary.
'The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used, ' Trump wrote, using unusually passive language in an effort to walk back the comment. "You can not dismiss entire countries and continents as 's***holes, ' whose entire populations who are not white, are therefore not welcome". Trump said during a bipartisan meeting on immigration earlier this week, according to multiple people in the room. It was best said a long time ago, E Pluribus Unum - Out of Many, One.
On social media, users across the continent on Friday posted images of modern skylines and lovely nature from their countries with the ironic hashtag "shithole". More than 50,000 Haitian TPS recipients live in South Florida, which is home to the largest concentration of Haitians in the nation.
El Salvador's foreign ministry said the U.S. president had "implicitly" accepted the use of "harsh terms detrimental to the dignity of El Salvador and other countries".
But that was not what all Americans wanted to hear, which gave conservative media space to be rewarded for saying more divisive things.
"Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?"
"When we see fundamental indecency and immorality, especially in high places, we need to stand up and SAY SOMETHING", he tweeted. "This behavior is unacceptable from the leader of our nation", she said.
In Kenya, East Africa's economic hub, political activist Boniface Mwangi pleaded: "Please don't confuse the #shithole leaders we Africans elect with our handsome continent".
"It is not as if the United States doesn't have difficulties. We, along with the president, are committed to solving an issue many in Congress have failed to deliver on for decades", the statement said.
"We want to be recognized as someone that is a part of American production", said Jean Garcon, who is an advisor for the Chamber.
Durbin and Graham were told on Thursday that Trump would not agree to the deal.
Ignoring shouted questions about the mounting firestorm over race, the president paid tribute during a ceremony to the reverend's "peaceful crusade for justice and equality".
The George W. Bush Presidential Center also chimed in on Twitter, saying "El Salvador was among the first to join our coalition in Iraq, sending thousands of soldiers to fight and die alongside Americans".
Trump has impugned the integrity of an American-born judge with Mexican heritage, saying he should not decide an unrelated case because of Trump's proposed wall between the US and Mexico.
In light of Trump's apparent claim that he wants to prioritize people from countries like Norway, the uglier white nationalist cast of all of this is inescapable.
