New York's Haitian community honored the eighth anniversary of the natural disaster that devastated their country Friday - and denounced President Trump's remark that the island nation was "a shithole".

"I spoke with President Jovenel Moise about the issue, and, of course, the president condemns such language and he is shocked", Altidor remarked, adding that the USA charge d'affaires in Haiti had been summoned to explain the U.S. president's remarks. Trump said, people briefed on the meeting told The Washington Post.

"The group is extremely appalled at, and strongly condemns the outrageous, racist and xenophobic remarks by the president of the United States of America as widely reported by the media", the African leaders said in a statement, demanding a "retraction and an apology".

While others said Mr Trump did not perhaps know what he was letting himself in for by welcoming more Norwegians as the country's egalitarian politics clashes with his "winner takes all" brand of nationalism.

"Sir", Colbert said. "They are not sh*thole countries". Made up by Dems. But instead of winning Trump's support, as they had expected, the president launched into a broadside against immigration from Haiti and Africa.

The resolution could be embarrassing for Trump if Republican leaders of the lower house allow a vote on it. One said lawmakers in the room were taken aback by Trump's remarks. "Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who was at the meeting, also said he stood up after those comments", Lemon continued. "There is no other word one can use but 'racist, '" United Nations human rights spokesman Rupert Colville told a Geneva news briefing.

President Donald Trump signed a proclamation for Martin Luther King Jr.
