Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Friday ripped President Donald Trump's derogatory comments on Haiti, El Salvador and Africa — highlighting their coming near the eighth anniversary of the earthquake that devastated Haiti.

Here is Clinton's tweet. She was U.S. secretary of state when the quake struck on Jan. 12, 2010:

Trump on Thursday reportedly referred to the nations as "s**thole countries" in a bipartisan meeting on immigration reform.

"Why are we having all these people from s**thole countries come here?" Trump said, The Washington Post reported, citing two unnamed sources who were briefed on the meeting.

President Trump on Friday denied making the comments — saying on Twitter that his language was "tough" — as he rejected the framework reached that would protect more than 700,000 illegals affected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

But Democratic Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin, who also attended the White House session, ripped Trump's comments Friday.

He said that President Trump "repeatedly" used "hate-filled, vile and racist" language about immigrants from those countries.

In the 2010 earthquake, more than 220,000 Haitians were killed in the 7.0-magnitude quake that struck near Port-au-Prince — and more than 300,000 were injured.

Over 3.5 million people were affected.
