Fallout over Trump's 's---hole' comment — Sunday shows preview

A report from the Washington Post reveals that in a meeting with lawmakers on Thursday, Trump asked why the United States was accepting immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador, and African countries.

According to news reports, Trump questioned why a bipartisan immigration bill would offer USA entry to Haitians and people from "shithole countries" in Africa - instead of places such as Norway.

Despite Trump's denial, one of the sponsors of the DACA deal who was present at the meeting, Senator Dick Durbin (D-Illinois), insisted the USA president indeed referred to the countries in question as "s***holes" multiple times during the gathering.

He tweeted Friday that he used "tough" language but "not that language", which was being taken as a denial of the "sh*thole" comment, although Mr. Trump did not specifically reference that phrase in his denial.

This would leave open the possibility of Vice President Mike Pence invoking the 25th amendment, thus setting up a Constitutional crisis that could land Trump out of the White House with sufficient Congressional approval. I have not read one of them that's inaccurate.

Dr. Ronny Jackson says in a statement released by the White House that Trump's physical Friday "went exceptionally well". "This isn't just a story about vulgar language, it's about opening the door to humanity's worst side, about validating and encouraging racism and xenophobia", United Nations human rights spokesman Rupert Colville said.

"The United States was built off of the backs of those who migrated from a wide array of countries", said Richardson, whose 43rd Assembly District in Brooklyn comprises large concentration of Haitians and people of African descent.


Representative James Clyburn (D-SC) and Representative Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) will formally unveil a resolution, after expressing that they were "deeply disturbed and offended" by Trump's reported comments, in which he said he'd prefer immigrants from countries like Norway over El Salvador.

He said that Trump should focus on the substance of the immigration reform bill and making sure it includes funding for policies he has long advocated for, including a border wall and enhanced border security. During a speech to African leaders last fall, he referred to the non-existent country of "Nambia" when attempting to discuss Namibia. Alexander Hamilton said that the Louisiana Purchase would have never happened were it not for the "courage and obstinate resistance of the black inhabitants" of Haiti.

Durbin described the discussions in the Oval Office in detail.

"The president has not hidden who he is", he said.

On Friday, Trump tweeted: "Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country". A person familiar with talk at the meeting told CNN that Trump also said: "Why do we need more Haitians?" "I think it fundamentally poisons the relationship with numerous countries".

Farah Larrieux, a Haitian immigrant and organizer in Miami, referenced statements Trump made in Miami's Little Haiti neighborhood while campaigning before the 2016 election that he wanted "to be the biggest champion" for Haitian Americans. He has also considered recording all his meetings to prevent similar controversies in the future.
