South Africa's governing party, the African National Congress, criticized the remarks.

"If you're willing to let this language fly, you're part of the problem". It is time for the Republicans in the room to state what they heard and not cower to the President or to his base.

"As immigrants, we built America", says Mcdoweel.

The Mission also demanded a retraction of the statement and an apology from the U.S. President. Haitians gave their blood back in 1779 to fight for the independence of this country.

"And if they say we don't have that, say, 'Well, look again, '" she added.

"The African Union Mission wishes to express its infuriation, disappointment and outrage over the unfortunate comment made by Donald Trump, President of the United States of America, which remarks dishonor the celebrated American creed and respect for diversity and human dignity".

"Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?". "That's going to be put on the backburner and that's problematic to me".

The comments, allegedly made by Trump, have also prompted widespread accusations of racism and disrespect towards other nations. "However, in the context of the president's comments - and the behavior and language that preceded them - several anchors and reporters offered unusually blunt labels and uncharacteristically personal opinions".

Mr. Trump also said "this was not the language used" after reports that he referred to "shithole" African nations in a meeting.

The Haitian government says in a statement that "these insulting and reprehensible statements in no way reflect the virtues of wisdom, restraint and discernment that must be cultivated by any high political authority".

"Today's a day for the White House to try to focus on substance, while the press will focus entirely on process", Fleischer said.

Though the examination is routine, its results have been unusually closely watched after claims that that the 71-year-old president may be mentally unfit for office. It is a lose/lose situation so long as such phrases as racial bias are being bandied about. In addition, he just completed his routine physical exam and the results concerning his health are good news for Trump. "The President and all those attending the meeting know what I said and how I feel", Graham said in a statement.
