Hunder said he expects Trump will hear from Haitian President Jovenel Moise and African leaders about the vulgar remark. The deal also would include restrictions on a program allowing immigrants to bring some relatives to the U.S.

Trump not only objected to immigrants from the so-called "shithole countries", according to the Washington Post, which originally reported the comments, but he also suggested the United States admit more immigrants from countries like Norway.

Waters added, "What does he have to say that I would be interested in?" and closed with, "He does not deserve my attention".

"Rather than listening to yet another destructive and divisive speech by Trump, I will not attend this year's annual address to Congress". "I just can not do it".
