Members Of NYC's Haitian Community Call Trump's Reported Comments 'Offensive,' 'Ignorant'

Mr. Rogers called it "regrettable" that the story came as the nation commemorates Martin Luther King Jr. and lamented that it "could distract from the urgent bipartisan effort to help Dreamers and those with Temporary Protected Status". — but there's no getting around that more people in the media are willing to use that label.

"It is thanks to our African leaders that we are insulted that way", she said. The president denied using certain "language", but a Democratic lawmaker in the meeting said the accounts were accurate. "I hate saying that, but I can say that now".

Haiti's ambassador to the US, Paul Altidor, said on Friday the president's reported remarks were particularly unwelcome coming on the eighth anniversary of the natural disaster which killed more than 200,000 people on the Caribbean island.

Initially, I was hoping that the comments were not true.

There is not much more to say than what the president said himself.

"But if he keeps stealing things, he's a thief".

"It's racist", said Niftaly Pierre of Orlando.

"They say it's about numbers, merit, security and control", Frank Sharry of the immigrant rights group America's Voice said of organizations that share Trump's desire to reduce both illegal and legal immigration to the U.S. CNN's Anderson Cooper said the words were clearly racist, but he stopped there.

"Not everyone who supports Trump is a racist".

Trump issued a partial denial of his vile language, but did not contest the thrust of his comments. He believes it stems from people considering it a fixed identity, when that's not necessarily the case.

Love said she does not believe the comment will set back negotiations in Congress on a federal program allowing children whose parents entered the country without legal permission to avoid deportation. To no surprise, the President started tweeting this morning, denying that he used those words.

MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell wondered where some of his colleagues had been. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., who on Thursday before publication of the news of Trump's remarks refused to comment on what was said.

"Let's give him some more time to see what he can do".
