South Florida fights back against Trump comments

Donald Trump

"I find President Trump's reported comments about Haiti, El Salvador and African countries unacceptable and inaccurate", Siplin said.

President Donald Trumps vulgar outbursts during a White House meeting on immigration are racist and indefensible no matter how he parses them.

After President Trump proved once again that he thinks People of Color are less than by calling Haiti, El Salvador, and African nations "shitholes," CNN journalist Don Lemon refused to dance around the subject.

"What the president said is offensive and doesn't reflect who we are as a country", Murkowski stated in an email distributed by her spokeswoman.

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.

But Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina), whom Durbin said had voiced objection to Trump's comments during the meeting, issued a statement that did not dispute the remarks.

And despite the president's opposition, Durbin said lawmakers still plan to vote on a plan reforming DACA next week.

In a statement attributed to him in media reports, Mr. Trump referred to them as "s***hole countries" during an interaction with lawmakers at the White House on Thursday on immigration. Many advocates said the comments shed light on why the Trump administration last fall stripped Haitians of Temporary Protected Status - specialized protection granted to people from countries experiencing significant turmoil - in which it would be unsafe for its citizens to return.

Former Presidents Clinton and George W. Bush visited Haiti's capital, Port-au-Prince, to lead US fundraising efforts following the January 12, 2010, quake.

Trump Again Tweets Support for Anti-Iranian Regime Protesters
On New Year's Day, he said it's "time for change", writing that the Iranian people "have been repressed for many years". He was praising the people of Iran for fighting the " corrupt regime " when he attacked the former president.

Responding to the backlash on Friday, Trump admitted using strong language in the course of the briefing, but denied using expletives, claiming that was not the "language used" as he also denied saying "anything derogatory about Haitians". I've always believed that America is an idea, not defined by its people but by its ideals'.

They were granted provisional U.S. residency after an natural disaster devastated the Central American country in 1991.

During his stop, we wanted to know what he thought about President Trump's controversial remarks yesterday - especially because he represents a diverse district.

"Why don't I believe him? Do we need more Haitians?"

The president implied Friday morning on Twitter that maybe he should start recording meetings because there is no trust.

The language came after lawmakers discussed restoring protections for immigrants living in Haiti and Africa than from places like Norway. We have Haitians who are driving cabs all throughout this country.

In a statement Friday, the National Korean American Service & Education Consortium (NAKASEC), which held events to help DACA applicants process their paperwork, said, "It is unacceptable that the president of the United States would attack a bipartisan effort with his racist, xenophobic, and ill-informed language and beliefs".

In a statement Friday, conservative Republican Senators Tom Cotton of Arkansas and David Perdue of Georgia had a different take on the previous day's meeting.
