President Trump goes for first medical checkup in office

Mr Trump made the remarks on Thursday in a meeting with lawmakers on immigration reform, The Washington Post and The New York Times reported.

Trump insisted Friday that he "never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country".

Clinton weighed in Friday afternoon, after Trump had been pummeled in the media for hours over having reportedly inveighed during an Oval Office meeting against immigrants from "s***hole countries" coming into the United States.

The president met on Thursday with Senators Lindsey Graham, Republican of SC, and Richard J. Durbin, Democrat of IL.

". Like other nations that have merit-based immigration, President Trump is fighting for permanent solutions that make our country stronger by welcoming those who can contribute to our society, grow our economy and assimilate into our great nation".

"Has America become a better country as a result?"

It's certainly true that, for many people, Trump's willingness to say whatever he wants is appealing, granted that the things he wants to say often jibe with the things they want to hear.

Haiti's ambassador in Washington has also asked for an apology, as Trump reportedly specifically questioned the protections granted to Haitian immigrants after the natural disaster.

Trump took particular issue with the idea that people who'd fled to the USA after disasters hit their homes in places such as El Salvador, Guatemala and Haiti would be allowed to stay as part of the deal, according to the people, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to publicly describe the discussion. "Why do we need more Haitians".

Rivers said Trump took the torch out of the hand of the Statue of Liberty with his remarks. "The President and all those attending the meeting know what I said and how I feel", he said, adding: "I've always believed that America is an idea, not defined by its people but by its ideals".

Sen. Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.) yesterday offered a tearful apology on the Senate floor for comparing the alleged abuse of prisoners by American troops to techniques used by the Nazis, the Soviets and the Khmer Rouge, as he sought to quell a frenzy of Republican-led criticism.

But given his previous call for a "Muslim ban" and other public statements, other experts aren't sure this latest comment makes much legal difference.

"I condemn this unforgivable statement and this demeaning of the office of the Presidency", Baltimore Rep. Elijah E. Cummings said in a tweet.

We'll get this out of the way quickly: Calling a country or continent a "shithole" is deeply offensive, entirely unproductive and seemingly counter to core American values grounded in compassion and inclusivity. Watters went on to say.

Miami's Haitian-American community leaders planned to spend Friday remembering the hundreds of thousands of lives lost in the horrific 2010 quake on the island.

Trump reportedly used a vulgarity to describe Haiti and African countries according to several reports.

Democrat Dick Durbin confirms the comment.

Graham and Durbin had proposed cutting the visa lottery program by 50 percent and then prioritizing countries already in the system, a White House official said.

Former Vice President Joe Biden condemned the remark on Twitter. Along with the mourning, government officials were expected to meet with the highest-ranking USA diplomat in the country for an explanation of Trump's reported remarks.

Motorcycle taxi driver Jean-Paul Maxon said he was angry that the president seemed to be unaware of Haiti's proud history as the first independent country founded by freed slaves. "Turns out they're just like us", Cox said in a Tweet that included pictures of his son with a smiling family. He ignored her, and she asked the same question again.

No, the republic did not crumble when CNN actually quoted the President of the United States without dashes, asterisks or euphemisms.
