Donald Trump has caused outrage after he reportedly made racial slurs about Haiti, El Salvador and African countries. He was in a meeting on immigration when he asked why the US let people from "sh*thole countries" in. He also reportedly said: "We need more people from Norway." Dick Durbin described Trump's words as "hate filled, vile and racist". The White House did not deny that Trump made the remarks. It said: "Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people."

There has been worldwide condemnation of Mr Trump's alleged comments. Republican Senator Mia Love said he had to apologize "to both the American people and to the nations he so wantonly maligned". The UN said the comments were "shocking" and "racist". Haiti's ambassador to the US stated: "If [the statements] were made, the President was either misinformed or mis-educated about Haiti." President Trump denied making the comments. He tweeted: "Never said anything derogatory about Haitians….I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians."
