Are you a racist?' Trump questioned over 's***hole' remarks

In a press release the ministry of worldwide affairs questioned why Mr Trump would use such a derogatory word when talking about countries which "the USA has had cordial and mutually beneficial bilateral relations for so many years".

Its government summoned the USA ambassador, seeking to clarify whether the United States regards Botswana as a "shithole" country.

It has asked the ambassador "to clarify if Botswana is regarded as a "shithole" country given that there are Botswana nationals residing in the U.S., and also that some of Batswana may wish to visit the US".

Donald Trump has denied using vulgar language during a private meeting with lawmakers as he faced a global backlash over his comments about immigrants.

"In addition to being insulting to us, more importantly it's quite disrespectful and insulting to the people that we're trying to help and the friends and colleagues that we've made there over the last eight years", Furey said in an interview.

Jean, who was born in the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince and is now secretary general of the Organisation internationale de la Francophonie, called Trump's reported remarks "insulting". I want to fund our military, not do a Dem defund because of the Democrats not being interested in life and safety, DACA has now taken a big step backwards. "I represent Florida, and we are an awesome melting pot where over 250 languages are spoken".

Durbin said that he and Graham talked about people living in the United States on "temporary protected status" - people from El Salvador, Honduras and Haiti.

He also took issue with Trumps reported suggestion that the United States should welcome immigrants from places like Norway, whose population is overwhelmingly white, instead of from African countries and Haiti. Mr Ryan was one of many commentators and analysts who referred to the treatment of Irish immigrants to America in previous centuries, as criticism of Mr Trump's comments grew throughout the day. Norway Prime Minister Erna Solberg visited the White House Wednesday.

Sen. Jeff Flake, a fierce Republican critic of the President, was not at the meeting but tweeted that he had heard directly from those who were in attendance. And it prompted senators who were present at the meeting to answer questions Friday about their recollections of the startling remarks. Asked about the remarks Thursday, White House spokesman Raj Shah did not deny them.

Amid the furor the president criticized the immigration proposal. Still, Jean, 60, who was Canada's governor general from 2005 to 2010, made no bones about her feelings.

Georgia Sen. David Perdue and Arkansas Sen.

And Idaho Republican Mike Simpson told The Associated Press that Trump's remarks were "stupid and irresponsible and childish". "I am committed to working with Republicans and Democrats to find common ground so we can move forward".

Trump did not respond or acknowledge any of the reporters. Salvadoran President Salvador Sanchez Ceren said he "vigorously rejected" the comments attributed to Trump, which also triggered outrage among some citizens. The Dems will threaten "shutdown", but what they are really doing is shutting down our military, at a time we need it most. Comprehensive, though, I worked on it for six months with Michael Bennet, and a number of - Bob Menendez, and Schumer, and McCain, and Jeff Flake - and it took us six months to put it together.

"President Trump called on Congress to solve the DACA challenge". We can agree on some very fundamental and important things together on border security, on chain, on the future of diversity visas.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein said Trump "espouses racist views and gives a wink and a nod to the darkest elements in our society".
