Governor Rick Scott, an early and staunch Trump supporter, is distancing himself from the president-issuing a statement that says "If this report is true, it is absolutely wrong to say or think this". Why do we want all these people from Africa here? "I have not read one of them that's inaccurate". The number of Norwegians immigrants to the USA has steadily declined over the past five decades, according to data from the Migration Policy Institute, which studies global migration trends. On Friday, the Academy Award victor published an op-ed in Time, calling Trump's alleged comments about bringing in immigrants from "sh*thole" countries "disgraceful".
"He was very kind to the Haitians, he was very eloquent to them, and he was the first president to (have) ever visited Haitians, and he said he was going to be the champion of Haitians", Haitian-American Georges Sami Saati said.
He doesn't deny that Trump possibly used the word "shithole" to describe Haiti and Africa, but he believes it's been taken out of context.
The African group of ambassadors to the United Nations have issued an extraordinary statement condemning the "outrageous, racist and xenophobic remarks" by USA president Donald Trump, and demanded a retraction and apology.

The president implied Friday morning on Twitter that maybe he should start recording meetings because there is no trust.
Mr Trump reportedly made the remarks at a White House meeting on immigration on Thursday. "Sorry, but there is no other word one can use but ´racist´", Rupert Colville, spokesman for the United Nations human rights office, told reporters in Geneva.
Why should we accept any less from the President of the United States of America?A country, by the way, that's played a hand in the poverty Haiti and other nations face today. "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!".
In the House, Republicans have enough members to pass GOP-only legislation but the party's far-right wing has a lengthy list of demands that could make moderate members squeamish. "Sorry, but there is no other word one can use but 'racist, '" said Rupert Colville, spokesman for United Nations rights chief Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein. Say, 'I did not mean this. I asked him about it a number of times and he denied it but kept up the racist rhetoric and behavior throughout the campaign and now that he's in the White House.
