On Thursday, Trump was in a private meeting with lawmakers to discuss immigration when those who attended said he questioned why the US would accept more people from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa rather than places like Norway.
"Like all Americans who embrace decency and the values of diversity and inclusion, and who celebrate what made America great in the first place, I'm appalled by these latest comments of President Donald Trump regarding Haitians and people of African nations", Pugh said in a statement.
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.
"I can not believe that, in the history of the White House in that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday", Mr. Durbin said on Friday.

"Following comments by the president, I said my piece directly to him yesterday", said Graham, who was part of a bipartisan proposal on immigration that Trump rejected at the meeting.
He continued, "President Donald Trump's words describing the glorious people of Africa, El Salvador and Haiti is far worse than mere insensitivity or even nationalism".
The Pope has criticized Trump in the past over his immigration policy. "I'm sorry, but there's no other word one can use but racist", Coleville said.
But in another tweet on Friday the president denied that he insulted Haitians.
"If confirmed these are shocking and shameful comments from the President of the United States". "I use those words advisedly. America deserves better, and when I'm governor, I'll protect immigrant families and make IL a welcoming state for all".
