U.S. diplomats briefed on how to handle 'shithole' storm

U.S. diplomats briefed on how to handle 'shithole' storm

According to leaked comments when Trump and a group of Senators were discussing the various temporary protected status programs for Haitians, El Salvadorians, and others, Trump asked why the national immigration policy of the USA did not prioritize immigrants from more prosperous countries like Norway, rather than Haiti and El Salvador. The president tweeted that he used "tough" language but that that was "not the language used".

But Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina), whom Durbin said had voiced objection to Trump's comments during the meeting, issued a statement that did not dispute the remarks.

Al Jazeera's Kimberley Halkett reports from Washington DC, US. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians. "That's not how a president behaves". And what's truly frightening about the "locker room talk" narrative of Trump's language is that it accepts racism, misogyny, and xenophobia as normal. He called King a "great American hero".

Many in this prosperous Scandinavian country were already asleep, but several prominent Norwegians who were still online took to Twitter to vent their outrage and disgust, not only at Trump's vulgar language but at what many saw as a racially tinged insult. DACA protects from deportation the almost 800,000 immigrants brought to the country illegally as children. "I've asked him about it a number of times, and he denied, but kept up the racist rhetoric throughout the campaign and now while he's in the White House".

A defiant Trump not only rejected the charges but fired back with a countersuit, accusing the government of trying to force him to rent to "welfare recipients".

But instead of asking about his health, questions like "Mr. President are you a racist?", rang throughout the White House. "There is a serious need for dialogue between the US administration and the African countries". "They [Republicans] don't believe in immigration - it's always been about people of color and keeping them out of this country", he added.


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

After an emergency session to discuss Mr Trump's remarks, a group of 54 African ambassadors to the United Nations said it was "concerned at the continuing and growing trend from the USA administration toward Africa and people of African descent to denigrate the continent and people of colour".

The sources spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to publicly describe the conversation.

Senegal's foreign ministry also called in the US ambassador in Dakar to demonstrate its displeasure, a US State Department official said. Some Democrats are threatening to withhold their votes - which Republicans will need to push that legislation through Congress - unless an immigration accord is reached. He asserted that there were good people on both sides of a white supremacist rally and counterprotest that turned violent in Charlottesville, Va.

Trump on Friday panned the "so-called bipartisan DACA deal" as "a big step backwards". "The Wall was not properly funded, Chain and Lottery were made worse and the US would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime countries".
