Haitian government summons U.S. official to explain Trump's comment

Trump reportedly grew frustrated with lawmakers who floated restoring protections for immigrations from Haiti, El Salvador and African nations as part of an immigration agreement. He noted that while Trump's comment was "offensive", it was the kind of thing Trump said in order to relate to ordinary Americans.

Neal Katyal, a lead lawyer challenging Trump's attempts to impose a travel ban on mostly Muslim nations, has argued the travel ban reveals a discriminatory intent on the President's part, and responded to news of Trump's comment in light of the ongoing legal battle.

Underscoring the pitfalls facing the effort, other Republicans also undercut the significance of the deal the half-dozen senators hoped to sell to Trump.

Trump expressed frustration behind closed doors with people coming to the United States from "shithole countries", sources told CNN on Thursday. But the White House and several GOP lawmakers said they'd not accepted the proposal, plunging the issue back into uncertainty just eight days before a deadline that threatens a government shutdown. They worked hard, paid taxes, and rose from nothing to take care of and provide opportunities for their children. She said, "This behavior is unacceptable from the leader of our nation" and Trump must apologize to the American people "and the nations he so wantonly maligned".

Sen. James Lankford (R-Okla.) called Trump's description "disappointing", while Sen.

"If these comments are accurate, they are disappointing".

"This is how some people talk", Watters, co-host of "The Five", said. "Every single Republican must denounce these comments now". Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) requested a "detailed explanation", according to The Hill.

Mubarak adds that "the sooner he is made aware that America needs the world and the world needs America the better it is for all of us".

Democratic Rep. Karen Bass, of California, also reacted on Twitter.

"The Democrats seem intent on having people and drugs pour into our country from the Southern Border, risking thousands of lives in the process", he tweeted.

Cornyn said the real work for a bipartisan immigration deal will be achieved by a group of four leading lawmakers - the No. 2 Republicans and Democrats in both the House and Senate.

Trump has questioned why the US would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa rather than places like Norway in rejecting a bipartisan immigration deal. "They should be welcomed and celebrated, not demeaned and insulted".

Asked about Trump's comments, White House spokesman Raj Shah said: "Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people".

Colville said Friday that the comments, if confirmed, were "shocking and shameful" and "I'm sorry, but there's no other word one can use but racist".

The bipartisan senators offered to end the visa lottery program in exchange for continuing that temporary protected status, one person said. "He's showing his bigoted tendencies in ways that would make Archie Bunker blush".

Another Republican Representative, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, who was born in Cuba and whose south Florida district includes many Haitian immigrants, said: "Language like that shouldn't be heard in locker rooms and it shouldn't be heard in the White House".
