"On this pale blue dot Earth that we call home, the Haitian people are our neighbors, to whom our support is both the policy of a great America as it is a sacred duty", Sean wrote.

Trump is under fire for reportedly using an expletive to describe African nations during a meeting with seven lawmakers discussing immigration.

And since we're also talking about immigration as well, we're hoping the president would take time to meet some of the TPS recipients, to see exactly how much contribution as a community we continue to provide here in this country.

It didn't take long for people across the globe to criticize Trump's alleged remarks as being racist, including several Democratic lawmakers.

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

"Instead of remembering the victims, we are dealing with a derogatory and racist comment", said Ingrid Francoeur Adams, who was born and raised in Haiti.

Graham declined to speak to CBS, but on Friday afternoon also released a statement that said, "Following comments by the President, I said my piece directly to him yesterday".

Saati, a member of the Republican Party, received Trump during his campaign visit to South Florida.

"I can not believe that in the history of the White House, in that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday", said Sen. "He said these hate-filled things, and he said them repeatedly", Durbin added.

A source familiar with the meeting told CNN that Carson was speaking with Trump about how to handle the controversy when the President turned to Farris Jr. and offered his explanation. "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!".

The White House has not denied the language used at the Thursday meeting on immigration.

The CNN anchor holds a close relationship with Haiti after he was one of the first foreign journalists to arrive and report on the devastating quake that killed thousands in 2010.

During the moment of silence in the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince, President Jovenel Moise placed the first stone for the construction of a new National Palace, which was destroyed in the quake, after denouncing Trump's comments as "racist" earlier Friday. He has also considered recording all his meetings to prevent similar controversies in the future.
