Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of SC said Friday he spoke "directly" to President Trump inside the Oval Office after he reportedly used a crude slur to describe to "s***hole countries" from Africa.

Graham's statement did not detail what Trump said or what Graham told the president in response.

Florida GOP Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen said Trump's comments were "completely unacceptable", telling WPLG-TV in Miami that "if that's not racism, I don't know how you can define it". "America's greatness is self-evident, we do not need to tear down other nations".

The administration announced a year ago that it would end a temporary residency permit programme that allowed almost 60,000 Haitians to live and work in the United States in the wake of a devastating 2010 natural disaster. He was taken aback by remarks attributed to President Trump, referring to some immigrant nations as "sh**hole" countries. "Knowing that there are people living there, we have feelings".

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

Hugo Martinez, El Salvador's foreign minister, called on the USA government to confirm or deny Trump's statements.

"I do appreciate their support and I'd like to continue their support and not be distracted by any false messages that can be propagated about Haitian people", he said.

"This is a good time for all Haitians to begin to realize how other people see us", Josue continued.

Norway's foreign minister refused to comment on the controversy.

The Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro said the problem with Trump's remarks was that he used a curse word and that "he said it behind closed doors unlike Joe Biden, while Conservative pundit Ann Coulter said that "s***hole countries" should be given respect by being called "s***hole nations". He said Trump used "shithole" to describe Haiti and African countries "not just once, but repeatedly". "That was the nature of this conversation".

The president who as candidate promised to build a wall with Mexico and branded Mexicans as 'rapists, ' has introduced several travel bans on immigrants from certain Muslim-majority countries, orders that have been checked by the courts so far. In reforming immigration we can not lose these American Ideals'. "He said, 'Oh, that's a good line'".

The president tweeted later on Friday: "Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country". Tom Cotton, both Republicans, issued a joint statement Friday.
