African Countries Demand President Trump Apology Over 'Shithole' Comment

U.S. diplomats serving in Haiti and African countries have been briefed to convey Washington's respect if they are summoned to explain President Donald Trump's alleged insults.

We'll get this out of the way quickly: Calling a country or continent a "shithole" is deeply offensive, entirely unproductive and seemingly counter to core American values grounded in compassion and inclusivity. "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA".

Trump on Friday denied describing certain nations as "shithole countries" after triggering global outrage. And it prompted senators who were present at the meeting to answer questions Friday about their recollections of the startling remarks.

"The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used", Trump insisted in a series of Friday morning tweets. They have long said that he is an equal opportunity provocateur, given to using strong and politically incorrect language to make larger points. And to this day, as I'm talking to you, we have Haitians in universities who are professors here. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!" "But deservedly so. This is what happens if presidents say things that cross a line and go too far".

Echoed Republican Sen. Susan Collins of Maine: "These comments are highly inappropriate and out of bounds and could hurt efforts for a bipartisan immigration agreement". Republican Senator Lindsay Graham of SC, also present at the gathering, said he confronted the president over his racy comments.

Tom Cotton (Ark.) and David Perdue (Ga.), who released a joint statement saying, "We do not recall the President saying these comments specifically".

Johnson rejected Trump's claim in a 2015 CNN interview in which the President said he was "the least racist person", declaring that "he's a racist both in his actions and his words". "This is encouraging and refreshing, as it indicates Trump is more or less on the same page as us with regards to race and immigration", the site said. Not just once but repeatedly.

Dreamers Remain Hopeful After Judge's Ruling Blocks End of DACA Program
Martinez says she is encouraged by Wednesday's court ruling in that prevents the Trump administration from ending DACA for now. The most logical place to start this conversation is with America's Dreamers.

John Binder is a reporter for Breitbart News.

The lawmakers had hoped Trump would back their accord, an agreement among six senators evenly split among Republicans and Democrats, ending a monthslong, bitter dispute over protecting the "dreamers". "There is a serious need for dialogue between the United States administration and the African countries".

Trump's denial came among a series of other tweets in which he defended his immigration stance. "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....", Trump tweeted. Because a Queens-born real estate developer used a bad word to describe the countries from which he'd prefer to exclude or reduce the number of immigrants?

"The majority of the Africans who come here are already here on the merit-based immigration", Dau told South Sudan in Focus. I want safety and security for our people. He called King a "great American hero".

Trump's immigration policy plan was, is and always will be the same: to limit immigration from countries where the majority of the citizens are not white.

"The president is in excellent health and I look forward to briefing some of the details on Tuesday", Jackson said in a brief statement distributed by the White House.
