President Donald Trump has tongue lashed countries with immigrants in the U.S., according to a New York Times report.
When it came to Nigerian immigrants, Trump complained that they would never "go back to their huts" in Africa after setting foot in the U.S.
"They all have AIDS", Trump said about the Haitians, reported The Times, quoting one person, unnamed, who was at the meeting and another who had been briefed by a different person who was in attendance.
According to The Times' report, Trump was upset about the number of people coming into the United States, and said that was "making a mockery of his pledge" to crack down on illegal immigration.
According to the Telegraph of London, the White House denied to the New York Times that Mr Trump used the words "AIDS" or "huts" in reference to immigrants, calling the suggestions "lies based on anonymous sources".
"General Kelly, General McMaster, Secretary Tillerson, Secretary Nielsen and all other senior staff actually in the meeting deny these outrageous claims", White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sadners said.

England's Prince Harry interviews Barack Obama for radio show
A segment of their chat will be broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on December 27th, and the full interview will go up later as a podcast. It's reported Mr Obama even teased Harry about his romance with Meghan Markle earlier this year at the Invictus Games.
According the sources, when Trump learned 15,000 people from Haiti had been granted United States visas, he remarked: "They all have AIDS". Still, the remarks are notable in that they underscore Trump's animus toward immigrants is personal as much as political-and that it is not shared by his closest advisers.
"Mr. McGahn insisted that administration lawyers had already promised the court that Mr. Trump would issue a new order".
John Kelly, the current White House chief of staff, was then the secretary of homeland security and asked that the room be cleared of staff, but aides could still hear the president yelling from behind the closed door. If he was so bad at his job, maybe he should stop issuing visas altogether, Mr. Tillerson fired back.
An article in the Times on Saturday cited two Trump administration officials who claimed Trump made the remark about Haitian immigrants in a June meeting in the Oval Office, as well as other remarks aimed at immigrants from Nigeria.
"He did not want a watered-down version of the travel ban, he yelled at Donald F. McGahn II, the White House counsel", the Times reported.
