Trump tweeted Friday amid criticism over his comments during a White House meeting Wednesday.

He later took to Twitter to deny that he had used the phrase. "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!" he said in one of the tweets. "I'm Don Lemon. The president of the United States is racist". Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust! Day, he did not respond to repeated questions about his use of the vulgarity or if he is a racist.

The reference to Norway may have been prompted by Prime Minister Erna Solberg who visited the White House on Wednesday when the president praised Norway for running a trade deficit with the United States and for buying US military equipment.

Mr Durbin added:"The president erupted several times with questions, and in the course of his comments, said things which were hate-filled, vile and racist".

Immigration is one of the issues that Pope Francis, who has strongly defended the rights of developing countries, and Trump have clashed over.

"It makes it harder because members of Congress become less likely to believe a deal is actually possible", Rep. Joaquin Castro told BuzzFeed News on Friday.

Republicans, however, joined Democrats in condemning Trump for his claims that Haiti, El Salvador and certain African countries are "shithole countries" and added: "Why do we need more Haitians?" Never said "take them out".

"It shows a lack of respect and ignorance never seen before in the recent history of the U.S. by any President", Mr Lamothe tweeted.

"This is particularly surprising as the United States of America remains a global example of how migration gave birth to a nation built on strong values of diversity and opportunity". She said "This behavior is unacceptable from the leader of our nation".

Special status given to about 59,000 Haitian immigrants, that has protected them from deportation following the 2010 natural disaster, will end next year following a Trump administration ruling last month.
