Trump's alleged immigration remarks shock political spectrum

Here's What Trump Had to Say About His 'Sh*thole Countries' Comment

According to various reports, the president on Thursday (11 January), when discussing places like Haiti and various African nations, asked this question: 'Why do we want all these people from "shithole countries" coming here?'

Democratic Senator Dick Durbin of IL condemned the alleged remarks.

U.S. Rep. Robert Pittenger, a Republican from Charlotte, went on WBT Friday morning to defend Trump's remarks and did so with incredibly twisted logic. Day during a event in the Roosevelt Room of the White House Jan. 12, 2018 in Washington, D.C. Trump is under fire for his characterization of certain countries.

In the past, Narkewicz has been highly critical of the president, openly criticizing Trump during campaign speeches and in public meetings for his policies on immigration and minorities. "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!" he said.

Durbin said when the issue of Temporary Protective Status (TPS) for Haitian immigrants in the US was raised, the president responded "Haitians". "The president will always reject temporary, weak and unsafe stopgap measures that threaten the lives of hardworking Americans, and undercut immigrants who seek a better life in the United States through a legal pathway".

Dick Durbin , D-Illinois, confirmed the remarks, saying Trump "said these hate-filled things and he said them repeatedly". As Fredericks was taken offscreen, Lemon said: "I was going to let him speak, until you doubly insulted me".

Democratic US senator: Trump called African countries '****holes' in meeting
White House aides yesterday did not dispute that the president used the word " shithole " to describe certain countries. If that's not a mark of white supremacy, I don't know what is", reads another tweet .

Durbin, the second-ranking Democrat in the Senate, described the president's words as "hateful, vile and racist".

Hillary Clinton has joined the roiling condemnation of Donald Trump and his controversial remarks about Haiti and some African nations, calling the president's views "ignorant" and "racist". Trump then suggested that the United States should instead bring more people from countries like Norway, whose prime minister he met with on Wednesday.

Also Friday, the House's leadership rejected Trump's comments-if they're true, they said.

In her statement, Kalonda said the African Union and its partners would continue to address the causes of migration while also fighting against racism and xenophobia. The President and all those attending the meeting know what I said and how I feel. And now, Ryan, a White House correspondent and CNN political analyst asked him the question that's on many minds: "Are you a racist?"

Meanwhile, a United Nations human rights spokesperson said on Friday morning that the comment could "potentially damage and disrupt the lives of many people".
