President Donald Trump was savaged online after a bombshell New York Times report claimed he said Haitians "all have AIDS" and Nigerians would never "go back to their huts" after seeing America.

The racial overtones of President Trump's alleged Oval Office comments drew a sharp rebuke.

One Twitter commenter noted: "This is the man who leads our country saying these things, not some drunk man clutching on to his whisky and a bar stool."

"Wow. I didn't know people still used racist insults like go back to Africa, and black people from (insert black country) all have AIDS. Not only is Trump a Nazi troll, he is a Nazi troll with retro racist insults."
