Norwegians tell Trump: We don't want to come to your s***hole country

Trump holds a cabinet meeting at the White House in Washington

Yesterday Senator Durbin and I met with President Trump at the White House to discuss our bipartisan proposal on border security and immigration.

However, US Democratic Senator Dick Durbin said on Friday Trump did use "vile, vulgar language, including 's***hole, '" in the meeting with lawmakers on Thursday. "It's unfortunate that he is representative of a class of people who rely on the labor of those they seek to destroy". Some of them are his friends, and I can hear them now, telling me: 'Donald didn't mean that, ' 'Donald isn't a racist, ' 'I think it was taken out of context.'. Given this shifting demographic, one would normally expect a president and his party to tone down racist rhetoric in a midterm election year and instead try to expand the voter base.

The president later tweeted on Friday adding that he never said "anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country". 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. In South Africa, the ruling African National Congress party declared "ours is not a shithole country" and described Trump as "extremely offensive". But there's no getting around that more people in the media are willing to use that label.

Despite growing claims of mental instabilityand speculation, President Donald Trump was given a clean #Bill Of Health this week at the Walter Reed Medical Center.

Mr Trump is the oldest ever person to be elected for a first term as president, though Ronald Reagan was the oldest ever in office at age 77 by the end of his second term. "We have consistently been portrayed as sh**ty people from sh**ty countries". He wants more funding for the wall, which is symbolic, yes, but that's exactly the point: As Frank Sharry of America's Voice puts it to me, the wall is a "middle finger to Latin America", a statement that "we don't want your kind".

Trump took particular issue with the idea, explained by Durbin of IL, the Senate's No. 2 Democrat, that as part of the deal people who fled to the USA after disasters hit their homes in places such as El Salvador, Guatemala and Haiti, would be allowed to stay.

Some Nigerians did not hold back, with many on Twitter saying their country was a "shithole", but that it was "our shithole" to criticise.

Trump was 70 when he took office on January 20, 2017, making him the oldest person ever elected to the nation's highest office.

"It is thanks to our African leaders that we are insulted that way", she said.

Johnson also took issue with Isaac Newton Farris Jr., Martin Luther King Jr.'s nephew, who told CNN after participating in a White House event honoring his uncle that he believes Trump is "racially ignorant and racially uninformed", but does not believe Trump is a "racist in the traditional sense".

Trump's latest comments provided ample fodder for talk- show hosts.
