Donald Trump sparked outrage after allegedly saying during a DACA meeting, that Haitians, Africans, and Salvadorans are immigrants from "crappy" countries, adding that he want's them out and prefer immigrants from Norway.

The president's thoughts on immigration sprawled through several Twitter posts on Friday morning before he tweeted his denials about some of the language he used at the DACA meeting.

The tone of discussion had looked very different early on Thursday.

"Racism is not recognized under the law as reason for immigration policy", he said. Durbin called the moment, "heartbreaking".

Trump, according to Farris Jr., addressed the controversy during their brief meeting in the Oval Office.

His remarks were allegedly made at an Oval Office meeting held on the eve of the anniversary of the 2010 quake, one of the deadliest disasters in modern history.

The statement the African ambassadors issued expresses concern over the Trump administration's apparent increasing denigration of Africa "and people of color".

The comments were "clearly" racist, Kalondo said, but stressed the U.S. was "much stronger than the sum total of one man". His supporters made excuses and continue to make excuses for him. how many examples do you need of this?

Durbin said Graham immediately spoke up against Trump's comments, and he commended the Republican senator for doing so.

The Vatican newspaper, L'Osservatore Romano, published a front-page article on Friday calling Trump's reported comments "particularly harsh and offensive". "And that's not the first time he's said stuff like that", Jacques said.

Samantha Power, who served as USA ambassador to the United Nations under President Obama, shared the ambassadors' statement on Twitter. Tom Cotton of Arkansas and David Perdue of Georgia, issued a joint statement, saying they did "not recall the president saying those comments specifically".

"Generally, I prefer for network anchors to pose questions, rather than answer them", former CNN correspondent Frank Sesno said of cable news coverage. I am committed to working with Republicans and Democrats to find common ground so we can move forward'.

There was no mention at that time of the language that sources said Trump had used, details of which were soon leaked.
