White House denies report that Trump made offensive remarks about immigrants

Mr Trump's alleged comments came after he was told 15,000 Haitians had received visas to enter the United States since he became President.

An article in the Times on Saturday cited two Trump administration officials who claimed Trump made the remark about Haitian immigrants in a June meeting in the Oval Office, as well as other remarks aimed at immigrants from Nigeria.

The Times reported that Mr. Trump had a ready-made excuse for nearly all the countries his controversial immigration policy targeted.

He was also quoted to have said immigrants from Haiti "all have AIDS", while describing Afghanistan as a "haven of terrorists".

The White House strongly pushed back on a report that President Donald Trump spoke about immigrants in a dismissive and demeaning fashion during a June meeting with top administration officials.

Huckabee Sanders was referring to Chief of Staff John Kelly, National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Secretary of Homeland Security is Kirstjen Nielsen. But as the president continued, Mr. Kelly and Mr. Miller turned their ire on Mr. Tillerson, blaming him for the influx of foreigners and prompting the secretary of state to throw up his arms in frustration.

The refusal came in light of risky revealing from the New York Times, which composed that, as indicated by two anonymous authorities, Trump said amid a gathering in June that individuals originating from Haiti "all have AIDS", that current Nigerian settlers could never "backpedal to their cabins" in Africa and that Afghanistan is a psychological oppressor shelter.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders issued a statement blasting the paper and denying that Trump had made the comments. "It's both sad and telling The New York Times would print the lies of their anonymous "sources" anyway".

Trump was said to be angered by the rising number of immigrants in the U.S. despite his travel bans.

Although Haiti does have one of the highest rates of AIDS in the world at around 2.1 percent of adults, it is dropping.

The Times said its report came from more than three dozen interviews, but at the same time, noted that several other people at the meeting told them they did not recall Trump using the words.
