The president said WHAT?

Former governor general Michaëlle Jean was among those Canadians who sharply criticized U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday for reportedly using vulgar language to describe Haiti and countries in Africa.

Trump denied in a pair of tweets on Friday that he made the comment, but referred to Haiti as a "very poor and troubled country". "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA", the President said on Twitter on Friday morning.

He also said that the Democrats "made up" the story, claiming that he referred to Haiti as a "sh*thole country", emphasizing that he had never said "anything derogatory about Haitians".

Al Jazeera's Kimberly Halkett, reporting from Washington, DC, said: "The calls for the president to apologise for his remarks are intensifying inside and outside the U.S., but for now, that apology does not appear likely". "There is a serious need for dialogue between the U.S. administration and the African countries".

Mourinho Responds To Man Utd Links With Sanchez
Sources told the BBC that Sanchez prefers to go to Manchester City and that there have been conversations between the clubs. They would now hope to do a deal for a fee of around £20million but are understood to have been quoted £35million.

The UN Office of the High Commissioner on Human Rights (OHCHR) has denounced President Trump's remarks as "shocking and shameful", and "racist".

Haiti said it was shocked by the reported remarks and summoned the top USA diplomat in the country, asking for an apology if the term had been used.

The senators are working to codify the protections in DACA. According to a Pew poll from 2015, 89 percent of the country said they had a favorable view of America, though that number dropped to 59 percent when the same poll was conducted in 2017.

Congresswoman Mia Love did not take Trump's utterances too lightly and released a statement addressing them.

And he wrote: "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians".

Beyond the glaring racism, Trump's off-the-cuff remark revealed another aspect of his mentality: he wants successful immigrants only. Mahama's tweet used an altered image of an Oval Office meeting featuring Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to mock that mistake.

The NAACP president predicted Trump's remarks will help motivate African-American voters in the 2018 midterm elections, saying the comments are "the language of the '50s and '60s, it is the language of a Ross Barnett and a George Wallace".

Durbin also said that several of his Republican colleagues at the meeting were not pleased with the president's words.
