Brooklyn Politicians Respond To Trump's "Shithole Countries" Comment

U.S. President Donald Trump boards Air Force One upon departure from Joint Base Andrews in Maryland

After Trump was asked at Thursday's White House meeting if the USA would accept more immigrants from Haiti and Africa, the president reportedly questioned why people from "s***hole countries" are coming to America.

Several lawmakers say President Trump used a demeaning expletive to refer to Haiti and African nations during a meeting Thursday.

CNN political analyst and White House reporter April Ryan outlined a unique way for people to oppose President Donald Trump's reported comments that some foreign nations are "s-hole countries".

He also denied saying "anything derogatory about Haitians other than that Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country". Plus, the White House has yet to officially deny the reports in a statement - and Hillary Clinton has plenty to say about it.

President Akufo-Addo tweeted that Trump's reported language was "extremely unfortunate", adding: "We are certainly not "a sh**hole country".

Mr Durbin said that when Mr Trump was told that the largest groups of immigrants with Temporary Protected Status (TPS) were from El Salvador, Honduras and Haiti, the president responded: "Haitians?"

Patriots WR Hogan cleared for playoff return
The NFL playoffs usually mean the New England Patriots , who are in the postseason for a record-tying ninth consecutive year. It opened the week as a 13-point underdog, and prior to last week hadn't won a playoff game since the 2003 season .

Trump's alleged comments came one day before the eighth anniversary of the quake. Mr. Trump reportedly said. But instead of winningTrump's support, as they had expected, the president launched into a broadside against immigration from Haiti and Africa.

The remarks, Durbin said, were "vile, hate-filled and clearly racial in their content". When I mentioned that fact to him, he said, 'Haitians?

"The Haitian government condemns in the strongest terms these abhorrent and obnoxious remarks which, if proven, reflect a totally erroneous and racist view of the Haitian community and its contribution to the United States", it said. In a private meeting in June of previous year, Mr. Trump said immigrants from Haiti "all have AIDS". "But I don't think he is a racist in the traditional sense". "Never said 'take them out.' Made up by Dems".

"The most disturbing thing about Trump's "shithole" remarks is the way in which his White House encourages assimilation".

Immigrant Daniel Desir, who runs a restaurant, is anxious that Trump's remarks could negatively influence other people and their perceptions about newcomers. The president said he has a wonderful relationship with Haitians and suggested future meetings probably should be recorded. I want safety and security for our people.

The African Union, an organization comprised of all 55 African nations, blasted President Donald Trump's comments that the continent contained "shithole countries."
