In less than 24 hours, President Donald Trump's reported comments about "shithole countries" reverberated around the world, prompting swift condemnation from the Haitian and Botswana governments.

But Trump has made off-the-wall racial comments like this before, according to Dr. Milliardaire Syverain, owner of the Shasa Medical Group, a skincare and weight loss clinic in Redwood City.

In a series of Friday morning tweets, Trump said he used tough language during Thursday's meeting, but he denied using vulgarities. "We should be talking about how we bring people together", Pugh said. "That was the nature of this conversation", Durbin said.

In a statement released on Friday, the mission expressed its disappointment in the president of the United States and demanded a "retraction of the comment" and an "apology to Africans".

"There is no other word one can use but racist".

Trump's comments came as two senators presented details of a bipartisan compromise that would extend protections against deportation for hundreds of thousands of young immigrants - and also strengthen border protections, as Trump has insisted.

"The comment is incredibly disappointing", Scott said after talking to Graham.

"This is not only hurtful, I think, to people of African origin in the United States, but certainly to African citizens", she said.

Also angered by the comments was IL state Sen.

"I believe that God loves people from Haiti, or El Salvador, or any other country as much as he does Americans". Baltimore Rep. Elijah Cummings said, "I condemn this unforgivable statement and this demeaning of the office of the presidency". "I'm exhausted of being outraged", he said. And, he said, "we are part of the American culture". Now his former rival for the White House is weighing in. As always, I look forward to considering additional ideas that could make the proposal even better. "He said, 'Oh, that's a good line.' "When I talked to him about the impact this has on family unification, in a nation that values families with the flag as the most important symbols of our future, they scoffed at this notion. I am committed to working with Republicans and Democrats to find common ground so we can move forward".

Hillary Clinton has slammed Donald Trump on Twitter branding him an "ignorant racist'".
