Rep. Mia Love demands Trump apologize for vulgar remark about Haiti

President Trump speaks to the media as he meets with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg in the Oval Office on Jan. 10

A senator present at a White House immigration meeting says President Donald Trump used vulgar language to describe African countries, saying he "said these hate filled things and he said them repeatedly".

In November, the Trump administration rescinded deportation protection granted to almost 60,000 Haitians after the 2010 natural disaster and told them to return home by July 2019.

Not suprisingly, Trump's comments were met with heavy criticism and condemnation by many. Reacting to Trump's remarks, the African Union continental body said it was "frankly alarmed" by Trump's comments.

Many other musicians, including rappers Lupe Fiasco, Chuck D, and El-P have also tweeted their own responses to the President's remarks.

The comments come after reports the president referred to countries such as Haiti and El Salvador "shitholes" during a briefing on immigration laws and DACA policies. And I think that any person who claims to have an absolute wonderful relationship with Haitians would know better than to suggest any kind of comment that would result in Haitians leaving this country.

Siplin's district includes Orlando's tourist district, where many Haitian immigrants are employed.

"Language like that shouldn't be heard in locker rooms and it shouldn't be heard in the White House", Ms. Ros-Lehtinen said in a Twitter post.

Meanwhile, the U.S. ambassador to Panama resigned yesterday, saying that he no longer felt able to serve Donald Trump.

Earlier Thursday, Love said in a statement: "The president must apologize to both the American people and the nations he so wantonly maligned".

"We always knew that President Trump doesn't like people from certain countries or people [of] certain colours", Congressman Luis Gutierrez said.

Trump on Thursday rejected a pitch from a bipartisan team of senators on a compromise immigration deal to protect DACA participants while increasing border security. "My parents came from one of those countries but proudly took an oath of allegiance to the United States and took on the responsibilities of everything that being a citizen comes with".

The United Nations human rights office said it had no doubt Trump's remarks were "racist", while the Vatican newspaper branded them as "particularly harsh and offensive".

Trump denies he used vulgarity about Africa
Reacting to Trump's remarks, the African Union continental body said it was "frankly alarmed" by Trump's comments. The World Bank on Friday tweeted that sub-Saharan Africa's economic growth this year is forecast at 3.2 percent.

Tweeted Republican Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona: "The words used by the president, as related to me directly following the meeting by those in attendance, were not 'tough, ' they were abhorrent and repulsive".

There is not much more to say than what the president said himself.

There was no mention at that time of the language that sources said Trump had used, details of which were soon leaked.

"Instead, we're subjected to Trump's ignorant, racist views of anyone who doesn't look like him". "If someone should be ashamed it should be Trump", said Michel Aubry, 38, who lost his left foot when his house collapsed during the 2010 natural disaster. One, as a candidate, he did go to Little Haiti in Miami to address the community. "Turns out they're just like us", Cox said in a Tweet that included pictures of his son with a smiling family.

"Unless it was specifically said about South Sudan, we have nothing to say", a spokesman for South Sudan told the Associated Press. Since they are receiving American aid, they were slow to criticize the president's comment.
