Poll: Were Donald Trump's s**thole comments offensive?

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has called out Donald Trump's comments as "hugely offensive" after he lashed out at immigrants from "shithole countries".

"Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?" Mr Trump asked last week, referring to Haiti, El Salvador and African nations.

"There's no other way to describe a response to that, other than hugely offensive," Ms Ardern told The AM Show on Monday morning. However she wouldn't comment on if she believes the US President's comments are racist.

"I know the African nations in particular have described it in that way," she said.

What do you think? Do you agree with Ms Ardern? Were Donald Trump's "shithole" comments offensive?
