UN Official: Trump's Vulgar Comments on Africa, Haiti Shameful

Trump language on Africa unacceptable racist says Ghana

Donald Trump's comments were allegedly made on Thursday at a White House meeting with lawmakers on immigration reform.

The eighth anniversary of the quake took place after reported remarks from President Donald Trump referring to Haiti and other nations as "shithole countries" during a briefing on draft immigration legislation.

Responding to the furor on Friday, Trump said on Twitter that his language was "tough", but "this was not the language used".

The White House meeting on immigration included a bipartisan group of senators. When Trump past year ended the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program - known as DACA - he challenged Congress to come up with a permanent fix by March 5.

In bluntly vulgar language, President Donald Trump questioned Thursday why the US would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa rather than places like Norway, as he rejected a bipartisan immigration deal, according to people briefed on the extraordinary Oval Office conversation.

Sen. Lindsey GrahamLindsey Olin GrahamGOP and Dems bitterly divided by immigration We are running out of time to protect Dreamers US trade deficit rises on record imports from China MORE (R-S.C.), who Durbin said had confronted Trump over the remark, also released a statement saying he had spoken up to Trump about remarks he disagreed with, though he did not directly confirm Trump's comments.

Durbin said Graham immediately spoke up against Trump's comments, and he commended the Republican senator for doing so. The United States should seek immigrants from Norway instead, he reportedly said.

"I appreciate Senator Durbin's statements and have enjoyed working with him and many others on this important issue", Graham said in his statement. Made up by Dems.

In Nigeria, one resident in Lagos told Reuters "calling [every] African country shithole is really, really, very bad and I think every African country should just learn from this and probably just stay in their country and work with their resources".

But the government of Haiti - which Friday marked the eighth anniversary of a devastating quake that killed at least 200,000 people - declared itself "outraged and shocked" by the "racist" slur.

El Salvador slammed them as "deplorable".

Addis Ababa: Vulgar comments attributed to US President Donald Trump have caused outrage across Africa.

United States missions went into damage control mode. Uganda's state minister for global relations, Henry Okello Oryem, called the remarks "unfortunate and regrettable" and hoped that heads of state will reply at an African Union summit later this month.

The U.S. government has faced a sustained diplomatic backlash over the past few days due to the comments, as well as widespread criticism from civil society. He has to know, like we all do, that xenophobic commentary plays well with his base, the people who were more than happy to put him in office because they could seamlessly project their racism and misogyny onto his celebrity persona.

"The solution to our current divisiveness does not live in the White House". "President Trump is not a racist".

Members of his own Republican party have also distanced themselves from Trump's comments.

Durbin added, "When the question was asked about Haitians ... he said, 'Hatians?"

In an oddly-timed coincidence, the U.S. president on Friday signed a declaration honouring slain civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr, three days before the federal holiday celebrated in his honour.

A routine annual affair for every USA president, Trump's medical checkup is being widely reported and has drawn media attention in view of his political opponents raising questions about his health.

US Ambassador Robert Woody Johnson - a Trump appointee - also explained in an article for the Evening Standard the decision to move the embassy was made in 2008 because of security fears after 9/11. He later told the AP that "Africa gave America the greatest president ever" in Barack Obama.
