Trump's Haiti comment draws global censure

President Trump's remarks about African countries and Haiti drew condemnation from a group of African ambassadors to the United Nations who called them "outrageous, racist and xenophobic" and demanded a retraction and apology. Trump reportedly used the word "s**thole" to describe Haiti and El Salvador, as also African countries while discussing immigration issues with United States lawmakers on Thursday.

President Donald Trump's vulgar insult of Africa was a puzzle for many foreign media organizations, which didn't have a ready translation of his epithet for their readers or listeners.

Trump also favours stopping the diversity lottery, a system that reserves visas for people from countries that have relatively few immigrants in the United States. The U.S. Military also carries out training and advisory missions in other African countries, with hundreds of troops performing that mission in Niger and Somalia.

Although a White House spokesperson on Thursday did not deny that he used the word "shithole", Trump insisted that was "not the language used" in a confusing Twitter rant on Friday.

The controversy, stemming from discussions about whether to include immigrants from El Salvador, Haiti and African countries in an immigration bill, appears to have dimmed chances of reaching a deal on immigration in the coming weeks.

The program extends legal protections to 800,000 immigrants who entered the United States illegally as children. Great opportunity missed. Too bad!

Hard-line immigration activists, who prefer the term "restrictionists", argue that the system they espouse - fewer overall migrants, an end to the family-based system that favours relatives of people already legally in the US and a greater emphasis on picking immigrants with skills - is not racially motivated.

"To (our) partners in the global community, I want to take advantage of this day to tell you all that under my leadership the country wants to take its destiny in its own hands, as I said in parliament", he added.

The Democrats are all talk and no action.

Almost a year into Trump's presidency, members of Congress are still struggling to relate to the unorthodox Trump and his spontaneous, often crude remarks.

Barbara Perry, the director of presidential studies at the University of Virginia's Miller Center said, "There is a long history of the White House picking and choosing what to reveal about the commander in chief's health". He is far from it.

According to Democratic Senator, Dick Durbin, Trump, during a meeting at the White House to consider migrant policies, said, "Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?"

"If that comment is accurate, the comment is incredibly disappointing", Scott told the newspaper.
