His administration late previous year announced it would end Temporary Protected Status (TPS) designation for Haiti, potentially forcing tens of thousands of Haitian immigrants to either leave the USA or live in the shadows. The media include The Washington Post and The New York Times newspapers and broadcaster CNN. And this vulgar language at a meeting about the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (Daca or Dreamers) programme! She recounted her parents' journey from Haiti and their experience in the United States.

The Pope has criticized Trump in the past over his immigration policy.

In Haiti, on the eighth anniversary of a devastating quake that killed about 220,000 people, the government also summoned the top United States diplomat for an explanation, while the Haitian ambassador to Washington called for an apology.

The comment "truly flies in the face of accepted behavior and practice", said Ebba Kalondo, spokeswoman for AU chief Moussa Faki.

The UN Office of the High Commissioner on Human Rights (OHCHR) has denounced President Trump's remarks as "shocking and shameful", and "racist". South Africa's ruling African National Congress said his comment is "extremely offensive".

Durbin explained they were in the US because they had been "the victims of crises and disasters and political upheaval".

But Democrats were not the only ones objected. "Why do we want all these people from shithole countries?".

DACA protects hundreds of thousands of young undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children from deportation. "Enough is enough. Silence is complicity", she said. On Twitter, Trump called himself a "very stable genius". "We are not from "s-thole" countries", he said. George Grow was the editor.
