Trump's Reported Expletive Hits Home for Connecticut Immigrants

In 2015, there were 676,000 Haitian immigrants in the United States, up from 587,000 in 2010, accounting for less than 2 percent of the USA foreign-born population, according to the Washington-based Migration Policy Institute.

Orange County Commissioner Victoria Siplin, who is of Haitian ancestry, said Friday that Trump is misinformed about the island nation, the first independent country founded by freed slaves.

"Other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country", he posted on Twitter.

In the Oval meeting, Trump went on to suggest that the country should be negotiating the entry of more immigrants from places like Norway whose prime minister he met with on Wednesday (Jan. 10).

"Casual Friday at the White House is soon to include hoods and tiki torches at this rate", South African media outlet Daily Maverick wrote.

"We always knew that President Trump doesn't like people from certain countries or people [of] certain colours", Congressman Luis Gutierrez said.

When word got out, Trump rose to his own defense immediately, tweeting: "The language used by me in the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used".

Trump blasted the proposal as "a big step backwards" and said it didn't provide enough funding for a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border, a key campaign promise Trump made in 2016.

"We have been working for four months and have reached an agreement in principle" that addresses the main policies Trump sought, they said. 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!" The White House later denied he used the word AIDS to describe Haitians. Durbin told reporters in Chicago. "I have not read one of them that's inaccurate".

Prominent Kenyan commentator Patrick Gathara told AFP that Trump's words were nothing new. "The president's emphasis on doing away with chain migration and the lottery is about people who are brought into the country with no regard to their skills, education or what their effect will be on the country", Beck said.

Trump's political allies have been through this dance before, grappling with how to position themselves after a president whose supporters they covet stakes out controversial positions.

"He has not only insulted Africans, he has also insulted African-Americans", said Sylvester Odion Akhaine, associate professor of worldwide relations at the Lagos State University in Nigeria.

Trump's Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson also spoke, reminding all Americans to treat each other according to the content of their character and not the color of their skin.

United Nations official Rupert Colville added "These are shocking and shameful comments from the President of the United States".

For years, a movement to limit the number of migrants into the US and end a system that favors family members of legal residents has had to fend off criticism that it's as a poorly veiled attempt to produce a whiter America.

Like Trump, Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen of Florida is a member of the Republican Party. Republican lawmakers introduced legislation in 2017 that would cut or eliminate some long-standing parts of the USA immigration system, but none of the bills passed.

"Following comments by the President, I said my piece directly to him yesterday". And she called on Trump to apologize to the American people.
