The 55-nation African Union condemned the remarks on Friday.

At first the White House did not deny that the remark was made.

Lemon played a tape of Trump's proclamation announcement, made only one day after reports of the president calling African nations "sh*thole countries".

Trump suggested the U.S. should instead focus its immigrant entry policy on countries such as Norway.

In 2009 Trump's predecessor, Barack Obama, chose Ghana's capital Accra to set out his foreign policy goals for Africa in a speech in which he said he saw Africa "as a fundamental part of our interconnected world".

While the White House did not deny the controversial remarks, Trump tweeted on Friday that he never said "anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country".

The African Union said Friday that President Donald Trump's reported description of African nations as "sh*hole countries" broke with "accepted behaviour" and was "extremely upsetting".

However, the backlash only continued. Some African governments found themselves in an awkward position as top recipients of USA aid but Botswana's government called Trump's comment "reprehensible and racist". "So, it's not just President Trump who doesn't understand that", added Young.

"President Trump's racist and incendiary comments about Haiti and Africa are an affront to the very values of our nation and of the American dream", he said. "And he said them repeatedly".
