On Friday, the United Nations denounced United States President Donald Trump's reported description of African nations and Haiti as “shithole” countries as “shocking and shameful”, and “racist”.

“If confirmed, these are shocking and shameful comments from the President of the United States. Sorry, but there is no other word one can use but ‘racist’,” Rupert Colville, spokesman for the UN human rights office, told reporters in Geneva.
