After Trump was asked at Thursday's White House meeting if the US would accept more immigrants from Haiti and Africa, the president reportedly questioned why people from "s***hole countries" are coming to America.

"Contrast that with President Trump asking why we can't have more immigrants from places like Norway, forgetting that it was people from sh*thole countries who built this country, who built the White House", Lemon concluded.

In a tweet, Clinton denounced Trump's remarks, which were made in a private meeting with lawmakers on Thursday, saying that Friday should be a day of remembrance for the 2010 natural disaster in Haiti. To no surprise, the president started tweeting this morning, denying that he used those words.

On the anniversary, many people want to focus on honoring those who lost their lives.

The Post said that Trump rejected a bipartisan bill that would have restored protections for immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and a handful of African countries.

Democratic Senator Dick Durbin, who was there, told reporters yesterday that Mr Trump used "vile, vulgar" language. "And he said them repeatedly".

Some even choose to cook the pods, boiling them in water and even placing them on top of pizza. The pods are bright and colorful, causing some children to believe they are candy.

"Of course people from #Norway would love to move to a country where people are far more likely to be shot, live in poverty, get no healthcare because they're poor, get no paid parental leave or subsidized daycare and see fewer women in political power".

Durbin said when the issue of Temporary Protective Status (TPS) for Haitian immigrants in the US was raised, the president responded "Haitians". Never said "take them out".

In fiscal year 2016, 1.18 million people became legal permanent residents of the United States, according to data from the Department of Homeland Security.

In a piece he wrote for Time, actor Sean Penn referred to President Donald Trump as an "enemy of the state" and the "enemy of compassion". "But as president of the United States, to be sitting around discussing policy is a threat to all of us", he added.

Rep. Al Green (D-Tx.), who previously introduced articles of impeachment against President Trump, said in a tweet that "Congressional condemnation of racist bigotry is not enough" and stated that he would once again force a vote on the House floor to impeach Trump. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!"

Haitian President Jovenel Moise's government issued a strongly worded statement denouncing what it called a "racist" depiction of Haiti.
