'We won't accept insults from Trump' - Nana Addo

'We won't accept insults from Trump' - Nana Addo

The comments come a day after Trump, in an Oval Office meeting about immigration, referred to a series of nations as "sh-hole countries" and questioned why the United States was not welcoming more people from Norway as opposed to Haiti, El Salvador and African countries.

In an earlier tweet on Friday, Mr. Trump said, "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used". Near the end of a year ago, the White House denied that Trump said Haitians had aids and that Nigerians would never "go back to their huts" in Africa during another immigration briefing.

President Donald Trump spent Thursday night making a flurry of phone calls to friends and advisers - denying he was racist but defending his disparaging comments about Haitians and African countries - as something many people think, but won't say.

In a tweet, Trump said: "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used".

African Union ambassadors to the United Nations demanded an apology from U.S. President Donald Trump for his "racist remark" on the people of Africa.

"My grandmother used to say, 'Digame con quién caminas, y te diré quién eres.' 'Tell me who you walk with, and I'll tell you who you are, ' " said Rep. Adriano Espaillat (D-N.Y.), an immigrant from the Dominican Republic, a country that shares the island with Haiti.

"Racism is not recognized under the law as reason for immigration policy", he said.

But in another tweet on Friday the president denied that he insulted Haitians.
