Haiti's ambassador to the United States has demanded U.S. officials explain President Donald Trump describing his country as a "s--hole".

Trump made the remark Thursday during a White House meeting after senators discussed revamping immigration rules.

He then reportedly suggested that the United States should instead bring more people from countries like Norway, whose prime minister he met on Wednesday.

The comments, first reported by The Washington Post, sparked anger among Democrats, and revived questions about Trump's tendency to make racially charged remarks.
