From the mountain top of Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I have a dream" speech to Trump's "Dicky Durbin" White House bathroom tweet.

Basketball star LeBron James said Trump's example emboldened people with racist views. "Norway is a predominantly white country, isn't it?" he asked, rhetorically.

"I think if we're all on the same page", Ogrodnick said, "we shouldn't need to call in anybody else". But she says she doesn't "dispute the president was using tough language".

Since the controversy erupted, Trump has not explicitly denied referring to African countries and Haiti as "s***holes", but has said, without offering details, that he did not use the language attributed to him.

Trump's predecessors, Democrat Barack Obama and Republican George W. Bush, were fitness enthusiasts, but Trump has no daily workout routine.

As the firestorm over Trump's comment began late last week, the White House and Trump's National Security Council provided no guidance to the State Department about what to say to foreign countries who were incensed, said a USA official familiar with the conversations between the White House and other federal agencies.
