'Thanks, but no thanks' - Norwegians reject Trump's immigration offer

Overshadowing the event was mounting backlash from Trump's comments during a private meeting with lawmakers the day before.

So we're naturally saddened by reports that President Donald Trump, during negotiations on immigration reform, asked why the United States should permit more immigrants from "s***hole countries" such as Haiti and the nations of Africa.

A group of "extremely appalled" African countries demanded yesterday that US President Donald Trump retract and apologise for his reported denunciation of immigration from "shithole" nations.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Thursday "There has not been a deal reached yet". Senator Dick Durbin said Friday he witnessed what happened at a meeting with the president regarding a bipartisan compromise on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and confirmed the president used that language repeatedly. "There is a serious need for dialogue between the United States administration and the African countries".

"The statement that he made is not from the entire America, it is from only one person", Charitable said.

Last fall, the Department of Homeland Security canceled the Temporary Protected Status for Haitian immigrants. He also mentioned Africa and asked why more people from "s***hole countries" should be allowed into the US, the sources said.

He also said that the Democrats "made up" the story, claiming that he referred to Haiti as a "sh*thole country", emphasizing that he had never said "anything derogatory about Haitians".

Pugh called upon all elected leaders, regardless of party, to condemn the president's comments.

Doron said he doubts that Trump will ever face up to his words. He did not specifically deny using the word "shithole".

"I want to add this for the record".

"We have been working for four months and have reached an agreement in principle" that addresses the main policies Trump sought, they said.

Orange County Commissioner Victoria Siplin, who is of Haitian ancestry, said Friday that Trump is misinformed about the island nation, the first independent country founded by freed slaves. "For him to confront the president as he did, literally sitting next to him, took extraordinary political courage and I respect him for it". "I think President Trump is racially ignorant and racially uninformed".

In a tweet on Friday, Trump denied using the word "shithole", but Durbin insisted that the president had indeed said it.

Trump questioned why the US would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa rather than places like Norway, as he rejected a bipartisan immigration deal.

The president of El Salvador, Salvador Sanchez Ceren, tweeted that Trump's statement struck a blow "to the dignity of the Salvadoran people".
