What has been reported widely and confirmed by people - Republicans and Democrats - in the room is that President Trump, the leader of the free world and the embodiment of all things America - referred to African countries as "shitholes" and questioned "why we need more Haitians" in America.
"This is even more hurtful given the historical reality of just how many Africans arrived in the United States as slaves, and also terribly surprising as the United States remains a massively positive example as just how migration can give birth to a nation", Kalondo said. "We can not let this derail us".
The president's remarks come after a weekend of non-stop criticism and calls for him to apologize.
Trump denied making the remarks Friday, although U.S. Senator Richard Durbin, who was in the White House meeting, said the president had used the term.

He tweeted on Friday to deny making the comments, which were reported by several United States papers and confirmed by Democrat Senator Dick Durbin, who was at the meeting in question. He called the new stories a "gross misrepresentation". We have lowered their expectations and told them that it's good for presidents to be dumber, that it's good to have a guy that speaks like you, like a guy you'd expect to sit next to you in your little local bar.
Sen. Dick Durbin of IL, the only Democrat at Thursday's meeting, said Trump had indeed said what he was reported to have said.
