African ambassadors to UN attack Trump's 'racist' remarks

African ambassadors to UN attack Trump's 'racist' remarks”

Friday, US Senator David Perdue (R-GA) said that he honestly did not remember the reported words "s***hole countries" that an aggressive Dem Senator claimed were used by President Donald Trump to describe problem countries in a WH meeting Thursday on immigration reform.

Trump has denied using certain "language" during the meeting.

But the government of Haiti - which yesterday marked the eighth anniversary of a devastating earthquake that killed at least 200,000 people - declared itself "outraged and shocked" by the "racist" slur.

"I was pissed when I saw what he said".

The African Union, an organization comprised of all 55 African nations, blasted President Donald Trump's comments that the continent contained "shithole countries." "These are human beings, not commodities".

The president suggested that instead, the U.S. should allow more entrants from countries like Norway. "I hate saying that, but I can say that now". Graham hasn't publicly commented on the meeting. "Why don't we get more people from Norway?'" Durbin told reporters in Chicago. Another major component of the plan is the inclusion of $1.6 billion for structures including a wall for border security. I am a Haitian-American. But overt statements of xenophobia are still disturbing as proven by the latest Trump "scandal".

"For once, we are all on the same page", an ambassador told AFP. If the Republican leadership has a better alternative, bring it forward. The remarks, Durbin said, were "vile, hate-filled and clearly racial in their content".

"He said: 'Put me down for wanting more Europeans to come to this country". We also love our homeland of Haiti and we know very well that Haiti is a wonderous country. "It leaves me hurt and it leaves me wanting justice". But the people are extraordinary and they're courageous. Do you believe that?

Some countries, such as Botswana, demanding the president apologize for his remark. And neither should voters, who will soon have the opportunity to hold apologists accountable for the president's unvarnished bigotry.

Graham and Durbin laid out the details of their proposed legislation.

Who will conduct the exam?

Lawmakers have until Jan. 19 to approve a short-term government spending bill, and Republicans will need Democratic votes to push the measure through.

Ghana's former president John Dramani Mahama, whom Akufo-Addo defeated in elections just a month after Trump's own win at the polls, on Twitter asked: "Isn't Trump demonstrating that he's nothing but a racist and pursuing a policy of 'Make America White Again'?" The embassy in South Africa said the United States "deeply respects" the people of Africa, and "there has been no change in our dedication to partners & friends across the continent".

When he was running for office, Trump released a glowing report from his personal physician in New York, who said Trump would be "the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency".

"President Trump, one day, I'll take you to a 's***hole' country called Ghana", wrote Ghanaian Edmond Prime Sarpong on Facebook.

The document stressed that Cuba joins the strong rejection that these statements have arouse around the world, and expresses its most heartfelt solidarity with all the offended countries.

Republican Rep. Mia Love of Utah, the daughter of Haitian immigrants, said Trump's comments were "unkind, divisive, elitist and fly in the face of our nation's values".
