President Nana Akufo-Addo tweeted an unflinching defense of the African continent - and of Haiti and El Salvador, countries also mentioned during a meeting Thursday between Trump and a bipartisan group of senators at the White House.
Meanwhile, Trump offered a partial denial in public but privately defended his extraordinary remarks disparaging Haitians and African countries. Conservative commentator Tomi Lahren asked, "If they aren't s***hole countries, why don't their citizens stay there?" "He's not a good president of America".
The Haitian flag flew at half-mast Friday morning as the president laid a wreath of white flowers at a mass grave where many victims were buried.
"Donald Trump has proved over and over again his words and actions are a step backwards from the ideals of America", Lemon continued.
"Although it has been eight years, the impacts of the quake are ever present".
"Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?" The UN Human Rights spokesman, Rupert Colville also said the comments were nothing but racist, shocking and shameful.
"Americans should not accept such characterizations of who we are", the Assemblywoman said. "We are an America that is the land of the free and the home of the fearless".
But if you have a look on social media, a lot of people are highlighting an interesting point about what Mr Trump allegedly said. The Dems will threaten 'shutdown, ' but what they are really doing is shutting down our military, at a time we need it most. "They [Republicans] don't believe in immigration - it's always been about people of color and keeping them out of this country", he added. "Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who was at the meeting, also said he stood up after those comments", Lemon continued. Senator Durbin, a close associate of Barack Hussein Obama took a "shot" at him accusing President Trump of being a racist.
Democrats also condemned Trump's alleged comments.
Nana Akufo-Addo, who assumed the presidency last January, made the comments on his Twitter account on Saturday.
"His comments seemed to disparage not only Haitians and African nations but all immigrants from black and brown countries, espousing a clear preference for white, European immigrants", he continued.
Trump denied on Friday using such derogatory language, but he was widely condemned in many African countries and in Haiti and El Salvador, and by global rights organisations.
Donald Trump´s doctor says he is in excellent health, after the 71-year-old president underwent his first medical examination Friday since taking office, the White House said. "That was the nature of this conversation", Durbin said. "It is not true".
"He said these hate-filled things and he said them repeatedly", insisted Sen.
Graham, who attended the meeting where Trump was said to have used the profanity, did not confirm it in his remarks. "And this influencer said what needs to happen, and it's kind of-she made me laugh with it, but it's real". I want safety and security for our people.
However, his advisers notably did not dispute the most controversial of his reported remarks: using the word "shithole" to describe African nations, and saying he would prefer immigrants from countries like Norway instead.
