Trump Blames Democrats for Stalled Immigration Negotiations Amid Backlash for 'Shithole' Comments

Robert Jeffress, pastor of First Baptist Dallas, a prominent Southern Baptist church, said that while he would not have used the same language Trump did, he agrees with the president's perspective. He added that Trump supports immigration policies that welcome "those who can contribute to our society".

Although the President denied he had used such language on Friday, Democratic Sen.

"The Bostwana Government has also enquired from the US Government through the Ambassador, to clarify if Botswana is regarded as a "shithole" country", the statement said.

Ignoring shouted questions about the mounting firestorm over race, the president paid tribute during a ceremony to the reverend's "peaceful crusade for justice and equality".

On Wednesday, Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg had visited the White House and was praised by Trump for running a trade deficit with the United States and for buying U.S. military equipment.

Asked about the remarks, White House spokesman Raj Shah did not deny them.

Among those condemning the comments were Hatian-American Republican Rep. Mia Love of Utah, who called the reported comments "unkind, divisive [and] elitist" and demanded that Trump apologize to Americans and nations he so 'wantonly maligned'.

"He lacked any sense of self-control or the a sense of propriety that is needed for the office of the President of the United States". He has said Mexican immigrants were "bringing crime" and were "rapists".

"I'm not the only one that does not remember that being said".

Republican lawmakers who were in the Thursday meeting generally sidestepped questions about precisely what Trump said. But it wasn't just Democrats objecting.
