"I felt so outraged ..."
In a statement issued in NY, the group of over 50 nations said: "the AU expressed its disappointment and outrage over the unfortunate comment made by Mr. Donald Trump, President of the United States of America".
"It's quite clear that he sees black people as lesser", McWhorter said.
A remark from President Trump has now possibly jeopardized the negotiations. And I made my own comments in response to it but for him to confront the president as he did literally sitting next to him took extraordinary political courage and I respect him for it'.
Asked about Mr Trump's comments, White House spokesman Raj Shah said: "Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people".
"It leaves me angry".
"Haitians don't deserve such treatment", said Ambassador Paul Altidor. "I understand how powerful they are". "Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?" the President reportedly asked lawmakers, arguing that the USA should have more people coming from countries like Norway.
"When the question was raised about Haitians, for example - we have a group that have temporary protected status in the United States because they were the victims of crises and disasters and political upheaval". The President wants funding for his election promise of building a wall on the U.S.'s southern border as part of any legislation on immigration reform.
"Now", she said, "this is how he treats us".
"If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency", Bornstein wrote.
On Friday, AU chief Moussa Faki's spokeswoman Ebba Kalondo had also said Trump's comment "truly flies in the face of accepted behaviour and practice". "Haiti is a proud nation".
Trump later added, "Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country".
El Salvador's foreign ministry said the USA president had "implicitly" accepted the use of "harsh terms detrimental to the dignity of El Salvador and other countries".
Santcha Etienne, 37, was incredulous. "It's one thing for him to feel that way and say things like that over Thanksgiving dinner, but imagine, for someone to feel that way about places like Haiti and Africa that have been through that much, if you're thinking about history it rather than the president as if you were some butterfly or amoeba, then even if you're thinking it, you're not going to say it".
"It's pretty clear it was a racist comment regarding people of color", she said.
