President Donald Trump * a href="http://abc7chicago.com/politics/trump-denies-describing-certain-nations-as-s***hole-countries/2933712/" *fired back Friday against reports he used vulgar language to describe African countries.

Trump is claimed to have questioned why the U.S. was would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "sh**hole" countries.

"The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used", Trump insisted in a series of Friday morning tweets. "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!" the president tweeted.

Jackson says he looks forward to proving additional details at a White House briefing Tuesday. This is only one of many examples I could list.

Fleischer, Fox News contributor and former White House press secretary under President George W. Bush, said on "Outnumbered Overtime" that Trump's blunt, politically incorrect talk has helped shake up Washington, D.C., but it's not always helpful to diplomacy and getting agreements done. After starting his presidential campaign by insulting Mexicans, then using a vulgar term to describe National Football League players who were protesting against police brutality, Robillard said Trump has already shown his true nature.

Republican lawmakers who were in the Thursday meeting generally sidestepped questions about precisely what Trump said.

Trump this week voiced frustration behind closed doors about people coming to the USA from what he said were "sh**hole countries", according to sources.

The African Union, a group representing the continent's countries, and African ambassadors to the United Nations sharply denounced US President Donald Trump's reference to African nations as "s***holes" and called on him to retract his statement and apologize.

Mr. President, so many have tried to take us out before.

The controversial remarks have already prompted an angry response from other countries, namely Haiti, which reportedly summoned U.S. officials for an explanation. "There is just so much dissension in this country right now", one church member said.

In a strongly-worded statement, the United Nations said it was impossible to describe his remarks as anything other than racist, while the Vatican decried Trump's words as "particularly harsh and offensive". As president, Trump has reportedly said that he believes Haitians coming to the United States "all have AIDS". Never said 'take them out.' Made up by Dems.

Trump's relationship with lawmakers on the Hill has seen many low points already in his first year as president, but 2018 already seems to be finding new ground. To borrow a slogan that many Americans of different backgrounds have been using since the beginning of this presidency, today we mourn, tomorrow we fight. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!" "It has become painfully clear to Americans of good will that we can have no constructive conversations about DACA [Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals], TPS [Temporary Protected Status], or family reunification with him, and this is truly unfortunate".
