Watch Reporter April Ryan Ask Trump If He's a Racist

Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Friday ripped President Donald Trump's derogatory comments on Haiti, El Salvador and Africa - highlighting their coming near the eighth anniversary of the natural disaster that devastated Haiti.

"These comments by the President of the USA are surprising and shameful", Colville said.

Many of those who criticized Trump said his remarks would damage America's global reputation.

Jeffress tried to draw a distinction between Christian obligation and the politics of governing.

"Why do we need more Haitians?" the Washington Post quoted him as saying, citing people briefed on the meeting.

Trump has said a deal that does not include funding for a wall along the southern border would be rejected.

The White House did not deny Trump's "shithole" comments in describing countries where the majority of residents are persons of color. He has repeatedly defended Trump over the past two years and has sometimes offered Christian theology as a basis for his defense.


President Trump tweeted a denial Friday that he had used such language in the meeting. Ryan said his ancestors were Irish and "were really looked down upon".

"I don't know how to break this to you, but I think the president might be racist", Noah said. "Today, Haitians are still here working hard, contributing to the social and economic fabric of this country".

Sen. Durbin said of the comments he's seen in the press regarding the meeting, he has "not read one of them that's inaccurate".

Durbin, the only Democrat in the room when President Trump made the comments, condemned it as "hate-filled, vile and racist". In addition, the president has denied the specific remarks, but added that he did use "tough" language. "These are American values and this White House has strayed from them".

"This isn't just a story about vulgar language, it's about opening the door to humanity's worst side, about validating and encouraging racism and xenophobia", he told reporters at a briefing in Geneva Friday.

Meanwhile, a United Nations human rights spokesperson said on Friday morning that the comment could "potentially damage and disrupt the lives of many people".

"They're racist comments, and he should say they're racist", Lee said.
