Trump Doesn't Want Immigrants From 'Shithole' Countries

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

Rebuke: Paul Ryan, the Speaker of the House and after Trump and Mike Pence, the third-most powerful Republican. rebuked the president for the words calling them "very unfortunate" and "unhelpful".

Mr. Trump was reported to have made the unsavoury comments while complaining about immigrants coming to the U.S., during immigration negotiations on Thursday with lawmakers in the Oval Office.

At their Oval Office meeting, two sources said, Trump questioned the value of taking immigrants from Haiti and African nations, and referred to them as "shithole countries".

"Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?"

Trump then suggested that the United States should instead bring more people from countries such as Norway, whose prime minister he met with Wednesday.

The UN has also branded as racist, the reported remark branding Haiti, El Salvador and unspecified African nations as "shithole countries".

The controversy, stemming from discussions about whether to include immigrants from El Salvador, Haiti and African countries in an immigration bill, appears to have dimmed chances of reaching a deal on immigration in the coming weeks. South Africa's ruling African National Congress said his comment is "extremely offensive".


On people from Haiti: "While Haitian immigrants typically arrive in the United States with lower levels of education and income than the general population, they sacrifice as parents to scrap and save and to ensure that their children can make the most of the opportunity to be here".

Senator Durbin, a member of the Democratic Party, was at the White House meeting on Thursday.

The US government should remember the good deeds of Salvadorans, such as "their contribution to the reconstruction of the Pentagon after the awful terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, as well as their efforts during reconstruction of New Orleans after devastating hurricane Katrina,"states the official note of protest issued by El Salvador's government".

"Following comments by the President, I said my piece directly to him yesterday".

One lady who refused to her show her face on camera voiced that Trump's utterance was unfair.

"All of you who over the last few years have uttered that exhausted, lazy, uninformed, uneducated response of calling me and others who point out racist behavior "racists, ' you know what you can go do?"

"Part of what makes America so special is that we welcome the best and brightest in the world, regardless of their country of origin", Hatch added.
