Africa calls Trump racist after "shithole" remark

U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin speaks to reporters at Year Up Chicago Friday Jan. 12 2018. | Ashlee Rezin  Sun-Times

Rep. Mia Love, R-UT, herself a daughter of Haitian immigrants, issued a statement asking for the president to apologize for his "unkind, divisive and elitist" language. "Haitians should not be seen as a bunch of immigrants who come to the United States to exploit U.S. resources". Our AU Presidents must respond strongly to this insult.

MA leaders are condemning President Donald Trump's alleged remark that immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and Africa come from "sh**hole" countries.

Trump took to Twitter on Friday to deny that he actually said what other people in the room described. "When the question was raised about Haitians, for example, we have a group that have temporary protected status in the United States because they were the victims of crises and disasters and political upheaval".

"The entire world looks up to the United States for its leadership and as a role model", Hunder said.

Following an emergency session of the African diplomats, Pobee added that the group "is concerned at the continuing and growing trend from the USA administration towards Africa and people of African descent to denigrate the continent and people of colour".

The African ambassadors issued the statement late Friday following an emergency meeting after Mr. Trump used vulgar language to reject an immigration bill, asking why the US would take in more people from Haiti and "sh*thole countries" in Africa.

"No, I don't there there will be", he said.

Senate colleague Tim Scott (R-South Carolina) said that Graham told him that the reports concerning the insults were "basically accurate".

The Republican is giving way to Democrat Phil Murphy , who takes office January 16. There were 31 more Democrats than Republicans on the bench.

Although the president denied making any derogatory comments, most in the Haitian community are not buying it.

Rebuke: Paul Ryan, the Speaker of the House and after Trump and Mike Pence, the third-most powerful Republican. rebuked the president for the words calling them "very unfortunate" and "unhelpful". "There is no other word one can use but "racist". "He said these hate-filled things and he said them repeatedly", Mr Durbin said.

Sen. Durbin on Trump comments.

Americans deserve to know beyond any doubt exactly how our nation's leader described countries that are home to almost 1.3 billion people. The president said he has a wonderful relationship with Haitians and suggested future meetings probably should be recorded.

Utah Senator Orrin Hatch, also a Republican, said he wanted more details of the president's comments.

"I kind of see his point, but I do think it's a little bit insensitive considering the situation in Haiti right now", Elizabeth Volmer said. The president of the United States is racist.

Mr Trump also took issue with the idea that, while a lottery that benefits people from Africa and other nations would be ended, there could be another way for them to apply.

But neither he nor the White House disputed remarks using a vulgarity to describe Africa nations and saying he would prefer immigrants from countries like Norway instead. "So, it's not just President Trump who doesn't understand that", added Young.
