Adds late night tweet from Trump; paragraphs 11-13)

WASHINGTON, Jan 11 (Reuters) - President Donald Trump on Thursday questioned why the United States would want to have immigrants from Haiti and African nations, referring to some as "shithole countries," according to two sources familiar with the comments.

Trump's remarks, made in the White House, came as Democratic Senator Dick Durbin and Republican Senator Lindsey Graham briefed the president on a newly drafted immigration bill being touted by a bipartisan group of senators, according to the sources, who asked not to be identified.

Other government officials were present during the conversation, the sources said.

The lawmakers were describing how certain immigration programs operate, including one to give safe haven in the United States to people from countries suffering from natural disasters or civil strife.

One of the sources who was briefed on the conversation said that Trump said, "Why do we want all these people from Africa here? They're shithole countries ... We should have more people from Norway."

The second source familiar with the conversation, said Trump, who has vowed to clamp down on illegal immigration, also questioned the need for Haitians in the United States.

Many Democrats and some Republican lawmakers slammed the president for his remarks.

Republican U.S. Representative Mia Love, a daughter of Haitian immigrants, said the comments were "unkind, divisive, elitist, and fly in the face of our nation's values" and called on Trump to apologize to the American people and to the countries he denigrated.

Another Republican Representative, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, who was born in Cuba and whose south Florida district includes many Haitian immigrants, said: "Language like that shouldn't be heard in locker rooms and it shouldn't be heard in the White House."

Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal, a frequent Trump critic, said the president's comment "smacks of blatant racism, the most odious and insidious racism masquerading poorly as immigration policy."

In an apparent response to his critics, Trump took to Twitter late on Thursday night.

"The Democrats seem intent on having people and drugs pour into our country from the Southern Border, risking thousands of lives in the process," he tweeted.

"It is my duty to protect the lives and safety of all Americans. We must build a Great Wall, think Merit and end Lottery & Chain. USA!"

TPS PROGRAM

The program that was being discussed at the White House is called Temporary Protected Status.

In November, the Trump administration decided to end the status for immigrants from Haiti and Nicaragua. It gave the approximately 59,000 Haitian immigrants who had been granted the status until July 2019 to return home or legalize their presence in the United States. Nicaraguans were given until January 2019.

This week, Trump moved to end the status for immigrants from El Salvador, which could result in 200,000 Salvadorans legally in the United States being deported, beginning in September of next year.

The bipartisan Senate plan would attempt to maintain TPS in return for ending or changing a "diversity" lottery program that has been aimed at allowing up to 50,000 people a year from countries with few emigres to the United States.

Asked about Trump's comments, White House spokesman Raj Shah said: "Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people."

"Like other nations that have merit-based immigration, President Trump is fighting for permanent solutions that make our country stronger by welcoming those who can contribute to our society, grow our economy and assimilate into our great nation," Shah said.

Another source familiar with the meeting said Trump was questioning why the United States should take in unskilled laborers from the countries under discussion and should instead welcome immigrants from nations that can offer skilled workers.


Poster Comment:

America needs more illiterate, unsanitary immigrants.

Apparently the fake news sources fail to realize that they're helping our President whose phony remarks hit the target with those who are anti-immigrant.

Trump continues to deny.

Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country. Never said “take them out.” Made up by Dems. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians. Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 12, 2018

We should have more people from Norway.

I was in the army with a Norway immigrant. He was one of the finest all around men I have known in my life. 100,000 more like him would be a blessing upon this country.

Why do people immigrate, particularly the unskilled? It is because there is nothing for them in their country. Trump forgets Haitian immigrants exist because of a massive earthquake, if he wants to say it is time to go home, then surely he could have just said that without denigrating the nations. trump obviously has great difficulty dealing with poverty

These 'immigrants' should stay where they are! Dig in for a change and help the nations that spawned them! Where in the hell can we go if a catastrophe hits? Go to Haiti? Or go to some other nation that we had nothing to do with its impoverishment.

As far as the unskilled is concerned, America has far enough of them sucking the tits of the bankrupt treasury. Too bad Lincoln's secretary of the interior, Seward, didn't get the freed slaves returned to Africa.

Liberals are like Slinkys. They're good for nothing, but somehow they bring a smile to your face as you shove them down the stairs.

I think that solution was tried, it is called Liberia, one of those nations Trump was referring to. Do you think Africa wanted them back, it sold them in the first place. Look if the US wanted to help Haiti it could have done so long ago, instead of pouring industry into China it could have poured it into Haiti. What about its own Porto Rica, that should not be a poverty stricken shit hole part of the US, but it is.

Trump and america is only interested in enriching themselves at the expense of everyone else. We don't mind america being rich as long as some of their largesse flows outward, but the US has been conducting a beggar my neighbour policy for a long time under the guise of competition

" Trump and america is only interested in enriching themselves at the expense of everyone else. "

If that were true, which it is not, the US would not be spending billions, and billions of dollars on foreign aid in all of those shit hole countries, nor shipping all of our industry to other nations, and we would not be allowing the people of all those shit hole countries into our nation, and then spending billions & billions on all the food, clothing, housing, and medical care on them. Wise up !!!
