Donald Trump repeatedly called African nations 'shitholes,' senator says

All African countries at the United Nations unanimously demanded Friday that US President Donald Trump retract and apologize for his reported denunciation of immigration from "shithole" nations.

On Friday, Sen. Richard Durbin (D-Ill.), who was in the meeting where Trump referred to "shithole countries", said Trump made the "hate-filled, vile, and racist" remarks that have been attributed to him. On Friday, the president tweeted that his language was "tough" but insisted he didn't say anything derogatory about Haitians aside from noting Haiti is a poor country.

The African nation said it had accepted United States citizens over the years, including senior government officials, which is "why we view the utterances by the current American President as highly irresponsible, reprehensible, and racist".

According to the, Trump grew frustrated with the deal over the changes to the visa lottery, which he said would bring in immigrants from "sh*thole countries". Made up by Dems.

Former Haitian prime minister Laurent Lamothe tweeted that the world witnessed a new low with the remark which was totally unacceptable.

In Geneva, the United Nations human rights office said the "racist" remarks would incite xenophobia.

El Salvador slammed them as "deplorable".

"This is not just a story about vulgar language", he said.


United States missions went into damage control mode.

"The president has been clear about what his priorities are in that process and we're going to continue working with members of the House and the Senate, Republicans and Democrats, to make sure that we try to get that deal done", Sanders said.

"On this pale blue dot Earth that we call home, the Haitian people are our neighbors, to whom our support is both the policy of a great America as it is a sacred duty", Sean wrote.

The resolution could be embarrassing for Trump if Republican leaders of the lower house allow a vote on it. "If someone should be ashamed it should be Trump", said Michel Aubry, 38, who lost his left foot when his house collapsed during the 2010 quake. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., described to Trump also includes his $1.6 billion request for a first installment on his long-sought border wall, aides familiar with the agreement said. "I don't know how to break this to you, but I think the president might be racist".

Trump did not publicly address the controversy during the ceremony and ignored repeated questions about it from reporters in the room.

Nevertheless, the uproar has revived attention on previous remarks by Trump that have ignited accusations of racism. President Obama, whose father was from Kenya, has not responded.

White House physician Dr Ronny Jackson said the examination which lasted around three hours at the Walter Reed military hospital in Bethesda, Maryland, went exceptionally well.

While demanding a "retraction and an apology" from Trump, the 54 countries also thanked those Americans "from all walks of life who have condemned the remarks". "Don't take that away", declared Jan Egeland, a former United Nations under secretary general and the current head of the Norwegian Refugee Council.
