Africa alarmed by Trump's racial rant

Trump denounced the deal reached by a group of six Republican and Democratic senators as too weak and insisted he did not use the word "shithole" to describe Haiti and African countries.

The United States should seek immigrants from Norway instead, he reportedly said.

The president said at the White House that "love was central" to the slain civil rights leader.

Trump did not respond Friday to several questions about the incident, including whether he actually used vulgar language to describe African nations, or if he is racist.

Ryan said his ancestors were Irish and 'were really looked down upon.' He called immigration 'a handsome story of America ' and said Africans in his hometown of Janesville, Wisconsin, are 'incredible citizens'.

Trump is claimed to have questioned why the USA was would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "sh**hole" countries.

Trump, who grew up in a Presbyterian family, shot back saying it was "disgraceful" for the pope to question his faith.

In a statement late Thursday, the White House did not dispute the vulgar language reportedly used by Trump during the meeting. "I don't think it makes it impossible, but I suspect the Democrats are sitting there going, 'Why would we want to compromise with him on anything?'" "They're shithole countries. We should have more people from Norway".

Also on Friday, Trump denied making the "shithole" and Haitian comments in an early-morning Tweet. I could write about the beauty of the island, the music and vibrant art, the majesty of the mountains, the crystalline blue of the water surrounding her, the resilience of the Haitian people, our incredible work ethic, our faith.

He then allegedly suggested America take immigrants from Norway instead, whose prime minister Trump had met with the previous day. Jeffress also said he was "grateful" to have Trump as president and thanked him for the "courage" to protect the U.S.

The African Union (AU), an organization which promotes cooperation on the continent, said it was alarmed by Trump's "very racist" comments.

President Trump said things that were hate-filled, vile, and racist. "The news is that the president of the United States referred to these countries using that language".

In the U.S., both Republican and Democratic politicians have condemned Trump's remarks, while the United Nations has called Trump's words "racist".

Next Friday is the deadline for Congress to pass a national budget, something many Democrats, whose votes are needed, have said they will not do unless there is a fix for DACA. "You can not dismiss entire countries and continents as "shitholes", whose entire populations, who are not white, are therefore not welcome", he said.

When discussing the people he saw rescued after being trapped under rubble for days, Mr Cooper paused to take a moment as tears started to well up in his eyes.

Trump tweets: "Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country. Do we need more Haitians?" He went to high school in Louisiana and to college at Louisiana State University and became a USA citizen. And I made my own comments in response to it.

"The president's physical exam today at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center went exceptionally well", Jackson said in a statement the White House provided to reporters.

Durbin said "shitholes" was "the exact word used by the president not just once but repeatedly".
