You Must Apologize To Africans- African Union Tells Donald Trump

Obama's UN ambassador pans Trump's 'miserably racist' comments on immigrants

Then there are what the president called "shithole countries" - Haiti and all the nations of Africa - whose people (overwhelmingly black and brown) the president doesn't think belong here. Trump came under fire from conservatives earlier this week for seeming to suggest he would be open to a comprehensive immigration reform deal without money for a border wall, before he quickly backtracked.

Sen. Tim Scott, S.C.: "If these comments are the president's words, they are disappointing to say the least". His comments are disappointing, unbelievable, but not surprising.

Haiti said it was shocked by Trump's reported remarks on Thursday and summoned the top U.S. diplomat in the country, asking for an apology if the vulgar term had been used.

Now, as president, Trump's words carry the weight of an office that has long helped guide the nation's moral compass and defined the American ideal for millions around the world. I could tell you how I have spent an inordinate amount of time and energy, throughout my life, educating people about Haiti and disabusing them of the damaging, incorrect notions they have about the country of my parents' birth. "In reforming immigration we can not lose these American Ideals". But it emphasised that such a partnership should be based on mutual respect and accepted global principles of respect of basic human dignity.

Trump also favors stopping the diversity lottery, a system that reserves visas for people from countries that have relatively few immigrants in the United States.

Trump can use crude language if he wants and he won't do any real damage.

The United Nations human rights office on Friday rejected as "racist" reported remarks by US President describing immigrants from Africa and Haiti as coming from "shi**ole" countries.

Critics of the president, including some in his own Republican Party, attacked the vulgar comments he made behind closed doors.

"These comments clearly reflect the President's true feelings on immigrants and make it extremely doubtful that he will work in an honest, decent way that reflects America's best values on legislation to protect DREAMers", Hoyer said.

Anthony Scaramucci, whose brief tenure as White House communications director ended shortly after his expletive-filled comments about his administration colleagues appeared in The New Yorker, said Trump "is not a racist".

Day, a day Trump will surely go through the motions to honor.

Shithole countries-like the Black ones.

"It's too much for an objective journalist to call the president a racist", Graham said.

"Haitians?" the President said, according to the source.

"My thought that we might get a bipartisan agreement approved by the White House died yesterday", Illinois Senator Dick Durbin told reporters Friday. "Take them out." Meaning take them out of the deal. In a statement, White House spokesman Raj Shah said Trump is "fighting for permanent solutions that make our country stronger by welcoming those who can contribute to our society, grow our economy and assimilate into our great nation".

The administration announced previous year that it would end a temporary residency permit program that allowed almost 60,000 Haitians to live and work in the USA following a devastating 2010 natural disaster.

The Mission demanded a retraction of the statement and an apology from the USA leader.

"While expressing shock, dismay and outrage, the African Union strongly believes there's a huge misunderstanding of the African continent and its people by the current administration". It's the most handsome continent in the world.

In an oddly-timed coincidence, the USA president yesterday signed a declaration honoring killed civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr, three days before the federal holiday celebrated in his honor.

South Africa's best known morning-news anchor, Leanne Manas, tweeted, "Good morning from the greatest most lovely "shithole country" in the world!' Elsewhere on Twitter, many Africans posted landscape pictures testifying to the true identity of their nations".

Trump earned national political prominence by promoting the falsehood that Barack Obama, America's first African-American president, was not born in the United States. The Botswanan and Senegalese governments on Friday summoned the USA ambassadors in their respective countries.

"I never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country".

Two months before the November 2016 presidential election, Trump released a five-paragraph letter from his longtime physician, Dr. Harold Bornstein, who concluded that Trump "is in excellent physical health". "It really is unfathomable", said Jimmy Kimmel.
