Cuba condemns Trump's "racist" statements on Haiti, El Salvador

As worldwide outrage grows after President Donald Trump reportedly referred to African nations as "sh-hole countries", the president of the NAACP slammed Trump on Friday evening over the reported remarks, outright calling the President of the United States "a racist".

Late-night hosts like Jimmy Kimmel, Trevor Noah, and Stephen Colbert were quick to deride President Trump's reported "shithole countries" comments on Thursday.

Condemning the comments "in the strongest terms", the group demanded "a retraction of the comment as well as an apology, not only to the Africans, but to all people of African descent around the globe". He tweeted, "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough but this was not the language used".

"African countries, and sometimes our leaders, do not exactly deal with the problems of the worst-off, that's what makes people immigrate". "But I don't think he is a racist in the traditional sense". "President Trump seems to relish derogatory remarks about others and praise for himself". In August, after the president said "both sides" were to blame in clashes between white supremacists and counterprotesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, many GOP officials condemned Trump's remarks but maintained their overall support for his presidency.

European Union urgesTrump to stick to nuclear deal with Iran
Mr Trump has argued behind the scenes that the nuclear deal makes the United States look weak, a senior U.S. official said. Trump had certified the deal twice before, and senior officials have grudgingly said Iran is complying.

Trump specifically questioned why the US would want to admit more people from Haiti, according to Durbin.

In Haiti, on the eighth anniversary of a devastating quake that killed about 220,000 people, the government also summoned the top United States diplomat for an explanation, while the Haitian ambassador to Washington called for an apology.

Trump has inaccurately claimed that Barack Obama, the nation's first black president, wasn't born in the United States.

The 2016 letter put Trump's blood pressure and cholesterol measurements in the healthy range, though he uses a cholesterol-lowering statin medication. Mr. Trump's racism is not new, but this anti-American presidency is. "Because you might learn that people from some of those 'shithole countries" were slaves who were brought by force to help build this country".

He said he had told the senior advocate that he will not withdraw the petition as "I have full belief in the institution". In his plea, Poonawala contended that the circumstances around the death of the judge were questionable and mysterious.

El Salvador, also facing an end to protected status for its 200,000 citizens living in the United States, sent a formal letter of protest to the USA government over the comments. "Why are we even talking about locker-room comments from 11 years ago when there are so many important issues at hand?" asked Minnesota state Sen.

Some Nigerians however did not hold back, with many on Twitter saying their country was a "s***hole", but that it was "our s***hole" to criticise.

"Had he said one thing one time, we might say that was a slip of the tongue or it's an example of unconscious racial bias or it was a mistake", he added.

In Senegal's capital Dakar, administrator Idrissa Fall said "we can not really say that he (Trump) is wrong".
