President Donald Trump has tongue lashed countries with immigrants in the USA, according to a New York Times report.

In an Oval Office meeting in June regarding his failed immigration bans, an incensed Trump lashed out at Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and other top aides.

President Donald Trump reportedly said 15,000 Haitians who received United States visas "all have AIDS" and 40,000 Nigerians would never "go back to their huts" after seeing the US.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the outlet further reported, denied that Trump made the derogatory comments detailed in the article.

He reportedly dismissed comments from then-Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, now his chief of staff, and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson that numerous people who got visas were short-term visitors, rather than immigrants planning to stay permanently.

According to the Times report, Kelly and Miller became frustrated with Tillerson, blaming the secretary of state for the flow of people from overseas.

US President Donald Trump has reportedly claimed Haitians "all have AIDS" and Nigerians live in "huts".

Reading from a document, the president noted that Afghanistan, a terrorist haven had sent more than 2,500, and Haiti had sent 15,000.

The Times reported that Tillerson replied angrily that "if he was so bad at his job, maybe he should stop issuing visas altogether".

But White House has denied it as another fake news from the respected newspaper.

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

The Times report said Kelly and Tillerson tried to respond by saying numerous visas were for short-term travelers, but that as Trump continued, Kelly and Miller "turned their ire" against Tillerson, who threw his arms up and retorted that perhaps he should stop issuing visas altogether.

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.

"He's basically saying, 'You people of color coming to America seeking the American dream are a threat to the white people, '" Frank Sharry, executive director of the pro-immigrant organization America's Voice, told the Times.
