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.

Learning that 2,500 Afghanis had entered the U.S. since his inauguration day, Trump referred to the country as a terrorist haven.

Reports of Trump's remarks come as his administration has sought to dramatically reshape the USA immigration system from almost every angle possible.

"More than 2,500 were from Afghanistan, a terrorist haven, the president complained", officials in the meeting reportedly told New York Times.

Toys "R" Us last minute shopping marathon
If you're looking for groceries, stores will be open on Dec. 24 and Dec. 31, but will be closed on Dec. 25, and January 1. It's the final few days of the retail rush as most stores and government offices prepare to close for the holidays.

The White House is said to have confirmed the meeting.

According to the USA paper, the President spoke during an immigration meeting and said 15,000 had come from Haiti before adding that they "all have AIDS".

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, denied on Saturday morning that Mr. Trump had made derogatory statements about immigrants during the meeting.

The month before, when a man who killed eight people in Manhattan was revealed to be originally from Uzbekistan, Trump bemoaned the air of complacency around immigration reform, calling current laws "a joke", the Times reports.

Bristol City Pulls Stunning Upset Over Manchester United in Stoppage Time
Many colleagues commented that they had never seen a manager leave so quickly after a televised game. Jose Mourinho congratulated Bristol City on their win but felt they were lucky to beat his side.

The refusal came in light of unsafe 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.

Although some administration officials acknowledged that the meeting took place, they denied that the president used "AIDS" and "huts" at the meeting. Tillerson responded by throwing up his arms in frustration and arguing that if he was so bad at his job, maybe he should stop issuing visas altogether, according to The Times.

The White House insisted to The Times that the president did not use the words "AIDS" or "huts" in the meeting.

"He's basically saying, 'You people of color coming to America seeking the American dream are a threat to the white people.' He's come into office with an aggressive strategy of trying to reverse the demographic changes underway in America", explained Frank Sharry, the executive director of America's Voice.
