Donald Trump Compounds His "Shithole Countries" Bigotry with Lies

Donald Trump Compounds His

President Donald Trump sunk to a level that may be considered low even by his own standards when he reportedly uttered the derogatory and racist comments in a meeting with a bipartisan group of senators on immigration yesterday.

"And then (Trump) went on, when we started to describe the immigration from Africa that was being protected in this bipartisan measure, that's when he used these vile and vulgar comments, calling the nations they come from shitholes", Durbin said. 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". Trump told senators in the Oval Office, according to a source briefed on the meeting, the comments from which were first reported by The Washington Post.

He added the US should bring in more people from countries like Norway.

Trump later added, "Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country".

In November, the Trump administration rescinded deportation protection granted to almost 60,000 Haitians after the 2010 natural disaster and told them to return home by July 2019. The Trump administration moved in November to end that program for residents of the island nation. "This is particularly surprising as the United States of America remains a global example of how migration gave birth to a nation built on strong values of diversity and opportunity". "And he said them repeatedly".

Jackson is expected to brief reporters in more detail on Tuesday at the White House.

Many social media users accused the president of being a "pathological liar" with one person saying: "Nobody believes you Trump!"

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

"I felt disgust", said Labossiere, a Haitian immigrant and co-founder of the Bay Area's Haiti Action Committee.

Earlier, El Salvador sent a note of protest to the USA government condemning Trump's alleged remarks.

"Many people have been surprised from what they heard from Trump, but not me", said Syverain, a member of the Haitian American Community Church in San Jose. I want a merit based system of immigration and people who will help take our country to the next level.

In the event that you had any lingering doubts that President Donald Trump is a racist, it's time to throw away that uncertainty.

Asked about Mr Trump's comments, White House spokesman Raj Shah said: "Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people".

The newspaper, L'Osservatore Romano, wrote about the comment in a front-page article about the immigration debate in the United States. "We should be talking about how we bring people together", Pugh said.

Trump has impugned the integrity of an American-born judge with Mexican heritage, saying he should not decide an unrelated case because of Trump's proposed wall between the USA and Mexico.
