He then said their story of overcoming that oppression was "a attractive story of America".

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said Friday that President Donald Trump's inflammatory comments about immigration from Haiti, El Salvador and African nations are "unfortunate" and not constructive.

Trump told senators in the Oval Office in reference to African countries, according to a source briefed on the meeting, the comments from which were first reported by The Washington Post.

"The first thing that came to my mind was very unfortunate, unhelpful, but you know what I thought of right away?"
