Trump holds a cabinet meeting at the White House in Washington

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.
