Trump is quoted to have said: "Why do we want all these people from Africa here?" If Trump wants to tweak immigration law to favor skilled workers from such countries, he should do that instead of denigrating human beings based on where they happened to be born.

Actress Monica Raymund said Trump "isn't even trying to hide his bigotry".

"It was a heartbreaking moment", Durbin said. It's a dignity many in this White House could learn from.

When speaking to reporters afterward, Graham declined to say how the president responded, but said that coming up with bipartisan support in the coming days "will matter to the president". "That's what breaks my heart".

He is being criticized by both Democrats and Republicans for what he said.

"Never said take them out".

Sources told The Washington Post on Thursday that while discussing temporary legal protection for Haitians, Trump asked "Why do we need more Haitians?" and told those attending to "take them out". The alleged comments caused a media firestorm and led many to refer to the president as "racist". "Some of them, people I personally know".

Spokesperson Rupert Coleville said: 'If confirmed these are shocking and shameful comments from the President of the United States.
