Tucker Carlson: Trump 'Shithole' Remarks Forcing Lawmakers to Justify Current Immigration Policy

Tucker Carlson: Trump 'Shithole' Remarks Forcing Lawmakers to Justify Current Immigration Policy

At first the White House did not deny that the remark was made.

Ex-president John Mahama has branded US President Donald Trump as a racist after he reportedly used crude language to describe African nations, Haiti and El Salvador.

The Botswanan government condemned President Donald Trump's purported remarks referring to African countries "shitholes", prompting some viewers to question whether a statement ostensibly issued by that country and spread via social media was real.

Trump reportedly made the remarks at a White House meeting on immigration on Thursday and a USA senator who attended the gathering said on Friday that the president used "vile, vulgar" language, including repeatedly using the word "s***hole". Democratic Sen. Richard Durbin of IL, who was in the meeting, reconfirmed Friday that Trump repeatedly "said things that were hate-filled, vile and racist". Norway's prime minister had just visited the White House Wednesday.

He and Graham explained that their proposal would alter the diversity visa lottery to give legal protections to some immigrants here with Temporary Protected Status (TPS).

United Nations official Rupert Colville added "These are shocking and shameful comments from the President of the United States". But said Durbin, "sh**hole was the exact word used not once not twice but repeatedly".

The POTUS' mental competency has been making headlines since excerpts of the book "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" have been published. "I use those words advisedly". In 2015, America transacted US$37 billion in business with sub-Saharan Africa, US$7.6 billion with El Salvador and US$2 billion with Haiti, a country still ravaged by history as well as the after effects of the devastating 2010 natural disaster.

Trump later tweeted that the language he used was tough, but not the language being reported.

Maryland lawmakers were quick to denounce the president's comments on Twitter. Sen. "Do we need more Haitians?"

Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal, a frequent Trump critic, said the president's comments "smacks of blatant racism, the most odious and insidious racism masquerading poorly as immigration policy". And he said there were "very fine people on both sides" after deadly violence at a neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville.

The President has since denied the comments; however, following Trump's denial, Sen. I want a merit based system of immigration and people who will help take our country to the next level.

The newspaper, L'Osservatore Romano, wrote about the comment in a front-page article about the immigration debate in the United States. Mr Mahama tweeted under a mocked-up photograph of Mr Trump being shown a map of Africa in which all the countries were labelled "Nambia".
