The "protest" is in reference to comments Mr Trump allegedly made during a White Oval meeting earlier this week.

The 55-nation African Union condemned the remarks on Saturday, while a statement from ambassadors of all countries from the continent at the United Nations (UN) demanded a retraction and apology.

"I planned to hold my two daughters a little bit tighter tonight, especially my youngest who was the baby I kept in my arms to keep myself from curling up in a fetal position each time I saw a child being pulled from under a school or house on my television screen".

Historian Ibram X. Kendi, author of "Stamped From the Beginning: The Definitive History or Racist Ideas in America", said he notices a reluctance to use the term.

The South Carolina Republican, who was on hand Thursday for the president's remarks, released a statement Friday afternoon explaining that he "said my piece directly to (Trump)".

"We had a meeting", Graham said from Capitol Hill, "and I will tell you that I'm hopeful".

Richard Durbin of IL, the lone Democrat present in the Oval Office at the time, said Trump's denial was false and the president had said things that were "hate-filled, vile and racist". CNN's White House correspondent Jim Acosta said that "it's a disturbing pattern because it seems to come back to one truth here and that is that this president deep down may just be a racist".

Conservatives expressed concern more about the weapon Trump had given to his opponents than it what he said.

Mark Harris from culture website Vulture added: "I'm looking at the word "S***HOLE" on many different channels right now".

"We do not recall the president saying these comments specifically, but what he did call out was the imbalance in our current immigration system, which does not protect American workers and our national interest", the statement said.

Republican leaders were largely silent, though House Speaker Paul Ryan said the vulgar language was "very unfortunate, unhelpful".

On Thursday, though, during White House talks about an immigration plan that would include protections for people from Haiti and other countries, Trump exploded with his "sh**hole" remarks, according to sources.

Trump a year ago ended DACA, which provided young immigrants with protection from deportation along with the ability to work legally in the U.S. He gave Congress until March to come up with a legislative fix.

Trump stood beside Isaac Newton Farris, King's nephew, while a group of about 20 African-American supporters and members of his administration were on hand in the Roosevelt Room, including Ben Carson, his Housing and Urban Development secretary.

"I don't believe the Democrats really want to see a deal on DACA".

The tweet from president Trump this morning.

All of those countries, at one time or another, would been called you-know-what countries.

The United Nations is investigating the US crisis of extreme poverty. Another major component of the plan is the inclusion of $1.6 billion for structures including a wall for border security.

"Uncalled for moreover it shows a lack a respect and IGNORANCE never seen before in the recent history of the U.S. by any President!"

In Senegal's capital Dakar, administrator Idrissa Fall said "we can not really say that he (Trump) is wrong".

It was unclear now how a deal might emerge, though both sides insist the clock is ticking.
