The president, six officials who attended or were briefed about the meeting told The Times, had a document listing how many immigrants had received visas to enter the U.S.in 2017.

Tillerson was reportedly frustrated by Trump's anger and accusations, but the president was backed up by his nativist adviser Stephen Miller and his chief of staff John Kelly, who, later in the year, unapologetically lied about and defamed Frederica Wilson, a prominent African-African congresswoman from Florida.

The New York Times cited anonymous sources who told its reporters' they were either there when the comments were allegedly made or had been told about the remarks by others present.

The White House Saturday strongly denied a report in The New York Times that claims that President Donald Trump, during private meetings about immigration this past summer, had made insulting remarks about people migrating to the United States from Haiti and Nigeria.

The newspaper, in the report on Trump's harsh immigration policy, described how he denigrated Nigerians at a meeting with his officials at a meeting in June.

He also had unkind words for Haitians who had sent 15,000 people. The 40,000 Nigerians who had obtained visas would never "go back to their huts" in Africa, he fumed, according to the two officials-one who was at the meeting and another who heard about the comments from another person in attendance. Tillerson responded by throwing up his arms in frustration and arguing that if he was so bad at his job, maybe he should stop issuing visas altogether, according to The Times.

The problems with peak current draws can also occur when batteries are cold or low on charge, Apple said. Of course many of these people then take their phone to Apple who notice a trend.

The claim was contained in a report by the New York Times.

"General Kelly, General McMaster, Secretary Tillerson, Secretary Nielsen and all other senior staff actually in the meeting deny these outrageous claims", she said.

Mr Trump has tried to crack down on immigration into the USA, citing terrorism fears, but has been stymied by the courts.

Tempers flared and Mr. Kelly asked that the room be cleared of staff members.

The White House did not deny that the meeting took place, but said the president never used the words "AIDS" or "huts" to describe people from any country.

The Times said its report was the product of more than three dozen interviews.
