After lawmakers raised the issue of protections for immigrants from African nations, Haiti and El Salvador, the president reportedly demanded to know why the United States should accept immigrants from "shithole countries", rather than - for instance - wealthy and overwhelmingly white Norway.
Haitians on Friday pushed back at U.S. President Donald Trump's reported description of the Caribbean country as a "shithole", instead celebrating a history of slave revolution and resilience on the eighth anniversary of a devastating natural disaster.
Sen. Dick Durbin left the White House Thursday "sickened and heartbroken", after hearing President Donald Trump refer to certain nations as "shithole countries," Illinois' senior senator told reporters Friday.
In the meeting, Trump criticized the tentative bipartisan agreement drafted by Durbin, Arizona Republican Jeff Flake and four other senators.
This statement was confirmed by those who were present at the meeting, although on Friday morning, Donald Trump began tweeting out that, no, he'd not said that at all. The proposed deal is a "big step backwards" and "outlandish", he wrote.

"He said these hate-filled things and he said them repeatedly", said Durbin, the second-ranking Democrat in the Senate.
The UN too criticised the remarks as "shocking and shameful" and "racist".
"He has not only insulted Africans, he has also insulted African-Americans", said Sylvester Odion Akhaine, associate professor of global relations at Lagos State University in Nigeria.
"Do we sue President Trump for saying those things?"
