On Fox News's "The Five," Watters fought back against criticism from Democrats and some Republicans over Trump's remark, which some have deemed racist and offensive to immigrants from those nations.

"This is how the forgotten men and women of America talk at the bar," Watters told his co-hosts. "If you're at a bar, and you're in Wisconsin, and you think they're bringing in a bunch of Haiti people, or El Salvadorans, or people from Niger, this is how some people talk."

  Arpaio on Trump’s ‘s---hole’ comments: ‘I support him regardless of what he says’ Arizona Senate candidate Joe Arpaio (R) said Thursday that he would support President Trump "regardless of what he says" in response to reports that Trump called Haiti and several African nations "shithole countries" in a meeting with lawmakers earlier in the day. In an interview on MSNBC's "The Beat" with host Ari Melber, Arpaio suggested that the president may have not made the remark, but said he would support Trump regardless of whether he did.

"Is it graceful? No," he added. "Is it polite, or delicate? Absolutely not. Is it a little offensive? Of course it is. But you know what? This doesn't move the needle at all."

"This is who Trump is, and if he offends some people, fine," Watters concluded.

Trump faced heavy criticism from both parties on Thursday after The Washington Post reported that he had referred to Haiti and some African nations as "shithole" countries during a heated meeting with lawmakers on immigration.

The White House issued a statement in response to the story, but did not deny Trump's use of the term.

"Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people," White House spokesman Raj Shah said.

In December, The New York Times reported Trump once suggested Haitian immigrants "all have AIDS," and Nigerian immigrants would never "go back to their huts" if granted entrance to the U.S.

The White House swiftly denied that report at the time, calling the claims "outrageous."
