United Nations' Full Statement On Trump's Comments That Africa Is A

"The president of the United States is exhausted of so many black people coming to this country", his colleague Anderson Cooper said. It is about our values as Americans. "We contribute a lot to the country where I am right now".

Donald Trump´s doctor says he is in excellent health, after the 71-year-old president underwent his first medical examination Friday since taking office, the White House said.

Three people briefed on the conversation say Trump questioned why the USA would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa rather than places like Norway. "Then the influencer said you also need to call the telephone company, tie up the lines and call the telephone company talking about 'I need to have my worldwide phone plan include S-hole'". And for all of you who over the last few years who have uttered that exhausted, lazy, uninformed, uneducated, ignorant, response of calling me and others who point out racist behavior "racist"?

Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, a key negotiator in DACA talks, recounted the meeting on MSNBC Friday. To no surprise, the president started tweeting this morning, denying that he used those words. It is not true. "But deservedly so. This is what happens if presidents say things that cross a line and go too far".

The program that was being discussed at the White House when Trump made his latest remarks is called Temporary Protected Status. "There is a serious need for dialogue between the US Administration and the African countries".


Trump questioned why the US would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa rather than places like Norway, as he rejected a bipartisan immigration deal.

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 United States president indeed referred to the countries in question as "s***holes" multiple times during the gathering. Our AU Presidents must respond strongly to this insult.

"I am deeply appalled and saddened that my people have to deal with this blatant racism, and lack of respect", says Solages.

He insisted he had "never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country", and added: "Made up by Dems. I think it fundamentally poisons the relationship with numerous countries", Peter Lewis, director of African Studies at Johns Hopkins University, told CNN.
