African Union, African UN envoys demand Trump apology after vulgar comment

US President Donald Trump insisted on Sunday "I'm not a racist" in response to reports that he had described immigrants from Haiti and African countries as coming from "shithole countries".

Mr Trump has faced heavy criticism since it was reported last week that he called Haiti and African nations "shithole countries" during a meeting in the Oval Office.

The president wraps up a three-day weekend at Mar-a-Lago today with a planned return to Washington aboard Air Force One this afternoon.

"He has so many people left and right telling him what to say and what not to say ... and sometimes maybe it gets confusing", she replied.

"No, no. I am not a racist", Trump said during a dinner photo opportunity with House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy in West Palm Beach, Florida. Isn't Trump demonstrating that he's nothing but a racist and pursuing a policy of "Make America White Again"?

Trump is said to have asked during an Oval Office meeting about immigration on January 11.

When Trump was asked on Sunday if he considered that the comments had made it hard to obtain an immigration agreement, Trump responded: "Have you seen what several senators said about my comments?"

A row broke out last week over Trump's alleged use of the word "shithole" to describe African nations. We want security at the border. Trump allegedly said after being presented with a proposal to restore protection for immigrants from Africa and other countries.

The president on Sunday amid reports that he referred to some foreign countries - namely, Haiti, El Salvador and countries in Africa - as a "shithole" denied such remarks and said charges of racism against him were unfair.

However, not all immigrant-related matters were shut down, as reporters say Trump expressed his support for more immigrants from places like Norway.

"I don't know if there will be a shutdown", he said.
