People from s***hole nations unwanted in USA, says Trump

People from s***hole nations unwanted in USA, says Trump

Republican Sens. Tom Cotton and David Perdue, who've been close allies to the president on the issue of immigration, were in a White House meeting with him Thursday when Trump, according to sources, expressed frustration with people coming to the US from "sh-hole countries".

The comments were "clearly" racist, Kalondo said, but stressed the United States was "much stronger than the sum total of one man".

In an afternoon of drama and confusing developments, four other GOP lawmakers - including hardliners on immigration - were also in Trump's office for Thursday's meeting, a development sources said Durbin and Graham did not expect.

It had sought clarification from the United States envoy as to whether Botswana was on the list of African nations Trump would include in his slur, which the White House did not deny he made, "given that there are Botswana nationals residing in the U.S.".

The President denied he said those statements, despite witnesses saying they heard him use the curse word.

Trump later went on to argue: "Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country".

In an oddly-timed coincidence, the USA president on Friday signed a declaration honouring slain civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr, three days before the federal holiday celebrated in his honour. King's memory is marked with a national holiday, which falls this year on Monday.

At that Thursday session, according to Durbin, Trump wondered why the United States did not instead try to get more Europeans, citing, for example, from Norway.

Having had his reaction to Trump's remarks made public by Durbin, Graham felt little need to confirm or deny the reports himself.

Trump scrapped an Obama-era program that gave the 800,000 young immigrants legal protection, setting a March deadline for Congress to offer a fix - though it has been reinstated by a court, for now. "There is a serious need for dialogue between the USA administration and the African countries", said the AU statement. "We're going to change that narrative and focus on what really matters, and not those comments". He added the country "would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime countries which are doing badly".

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

"Wall was not properly funded, Chain & Lottery were made worse and United States of America would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime countries which are doing badly", Trump wrote.

Botswana summoned the U.S. ambassador to the country to "clarify if Botswana is regarded as a "s***hole" country", according to a Foreign Ministry statement calling Mr Trump's comments "irresponsible, reprehensible and racist".

"I want a merit based system of immigration and people who will help take our country to the next level", Trump said in another tweet. We have consistently been portrayed as s****y people from s****y countries.

He also revealed, while talking to reporters in Chicago, the remarkable backstory of how this latest chapter of Trump's chaotic presidency came to be.

"The President is in excellent health", said Jackson after he conducted the first physical exam of the 45th President of the United States.

Sen. Dick Durbin, the lone Democrat in the meeting, confirmed the comments Friday morning, calling the words "hate filled, vile and racist". Isn't Trump demonstrating that he's nothing but a racist and pursuing a policy of "Make America White Again"? He also blamed "both sides" after a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, turned violent.

Republican lawmakers who were in the Thursday meeting generally sidestepped questions about precisely what Trump said.

"We have seven days and the clock is ticking".
