Ryan's search for something to "change the dynamic" comes just hours after Trump ignored her questions at the White House on Friday.

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of SC said Friday he spoke "directly" to President Trump inside the Oval Office after he reportedly used a crude slur to describe to "s***hole countries" from Africa.

Republican Sens. Tom Cotton and David Perdue, who've been close allies to the president on the issue of immigration, were in a White House meeting with him Thursday when Trump, according to sources, expressed frustration with people coming to the USA from "sh-hole countries".

"Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?" the Washington Post quoted him as saying.

At one point, Trump, according to two sources, said: "Why do we want all these people from Africa here?"

There have been more responses to President Donald Trump allegedly referring to some nations as "shithole countries".

Rosen said there are jobs and opportunities in the USA for the 50,000 people who left Haiti. "We should have more people from Norway".

Steven Forester, of the Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti, blasted the president's decision to sunset TPS as racist and said the reported comments prove it.

In Rosen's opinion, the focus should be on protecting Haitians' status in the U.S.

But U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, who was at the meeting, insists the Republican president used the vulgar term. Trump denied using the word Friday. "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!".

The US leader made the alleged remark in a Thursday meeting on immigration.

The US government should remember the good deeds of Salvadorans, such as "their contribution to the reconstruction of the Pentagon after the bad terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, as well as their efforts during reconstruction of New Orleans after devastating hurricane Katrina,"states the official note of protest issued by El Salvador's government".

Jean, a refugee from Haiti who came to Canada in 1968 and was raised in Thetford Mines, Que., also noted that Friday was the eighth anniversary of a devastating natural disaster that struck her native country, one of 57 member French-language countries - many from Africa - that form La Francophonie. On Friday morning, Trump tweeted that his "language was tough" but "this was not the language used". "From the president of America, wow, that's insane", said Abass Diallo, owner of NC African Market on New Hope Church Road in east Raleigh.
