African immigrants in Raleigh 'insulted' by Trump's vulgar remarks

"President Donald Trump's dismissal of Haiti, El Salvador and African nations as" shithole countries" whose inhabitants are not desirable for United States immigration shocked people around the world and provoked swift condemnation.

He later tweeted that he has "never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously a very poor and troubled country". According to those briefed on the conversation, the president used the phrase * a href="http://abc7chicago.com/politics/trump-why-allow-immigrants-from-s***hole-countries/2930875/" *"s***hole countries" while questioning why the US would accept more immigrants from Haiti and nations in Africa, rather than places like Norway. Situations like this are undermining the United States' credibility around the world, alternately making it a laughing stock or a pariah.

"The (President's) comments are unkind, divisive, elitist, and fly in the face of our nation's values", Love said in a statement Thursday night. "Why do we want all these people from shithole countries?"

Meanwhile, Kathinka Froystad addressed the President directly, saying: "Dear Mr President, I am glad you enjoyed meeting my prime minister, but I am quite happy where I am and would not even dream of settling down in the United States during your s***hole, racist and misogynist regime". But I just don't have the patience for this hyperventilation.

After The Washington Post first reported Mr. Trump's remarks, later confirmed by CBS News' Nancy Cordes, the White House did not deny the comment in a statement.

"Haitians don't deserve such treatment", said Ambassador Paul Altidor. "She said what people need to do-black and brown people need to do-is pick up the phone and start calling the airlines and saying, 'Book me a ticket to S-hole'".

Trump denies using the term.


During a meeting in the Oval Office, Illinois Senator Dick Durbin proposed restoring protections for immigrants from Haiti, several other African countries and El Salvador. When I mentioned that fact to him, he said, 'Haitians?

"The president is in excellent health and I look forward to briefing some of the details on Tuesday", said Jackson.

Trump's latest comments have sparked global outrage and have been widely condemned as racist and extremely offensive.

"The statement that he made is not from the entire America, it is from only one person", Charitable said.

Richard Durbin of IL - after Trump reportedly made the comment at an Oval Office meeting, where he was also is claimed to have said disparaging things about Haitian immigrants.

The president implied Friday morning on Twitter that maybe he should start recording meetings because there is no trust. "In the course of (Trump's) comments, he said things that were hate-filled, vile and racist. l use those words advisingly, I understand how powerful they are". Never said 'take them out.' Made up by Dems. The legislation would provide a pathway to citizenship for so-called Dreamers, undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S.as children, but would also incorporate other border and internal security provisions to try to appease Republicans. "I would tell him before he talks, he needs to think before he says something", he said.

Over the past few months, Comey - who was sacked by Trump in May previous year - has become the king of the subtweet on Twitter, frequently throwing shade at the president over the political news of the day.
