"You can not dismiss entire countries and continents as 'shitholes, ' whose entire populations, who are not white, are therefore not welcome". Trump told senators in the Oval Office, the Washington Post reported, citing a source briefed on the meeting. Today the president tweeted that his language was "tough" but insisted he did not say anything derogatory about Haitians aside from noting it is a poor country. It is about Trump's vicious policies that treat immigrants and people of color as less than human.

He added: "When the question was asked about Haitians... he said 'Haitians?" I think the first phase is what Chuck and Steny and I have mentioned, and others as well: We have a deadline looming and a lot of lives hanging. "I represent Florida, and we are an awesome melting pot where over 250 languages are spoken".

The comments were reminiscent of ones the President made past year in an Oval Office meeting with cabinet officials and administration aides, during which he complained about admitting Haitians to the country. "I'm incredibly proud of our diversity".

The meeting included discussion of a program known as Temporary Protected Status (TPS) that covers some 200,000 people from El Salvador living in the United States.

Trump's remarks, the latest example of his penchant for racially tinged remarks denigrating immigrants, left members of Congress from both parties attending the meeting in the Cabinet Room alarmed and mystified.
