Sen. Tim Scott, the only Republican African-American senator, said he was disappointed by President Donald Trump calling Haiti and African nations "s***hole counties," the Washington Examiner is reporting.

"If these comments are the president's words, they are disappointing to say the least," Scott, who represents South Carolina, said.

"The American family was born from immigrants fleeing persecution and poverty and searching for a better future," he added. "Our strength lies in our diversity, including those who came here from Africa, the Caribbean and every other corner of the world. To deny these facts would be to ignore the brightest part of our history."

Trump is said to have made his vulgar reference while questioning why the U.S. would accept more immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and countries in Africa, rather than places like Norway, during a meeting in the Oval Office on Thursday.
