Africa startled by sudden and vulgar attention

Donald Trump

The African Union, through its member States, values the strategic partnership with the U.S.

"First stop would be Osu Castle, Elmina Castle, and the over 40 Forts that detained about 30 million slaves, beaten and shipped out like sardine cans and then I will tell you the history of Africa and why people like you made that a "s***hole" continent", he said.

Mr Trump's alleged comment has caused a backlash among people across Africa, in Haiti and El Salvador, with many tweeting pictures of their "shithole countries".

The Haitian government has summoned a US official to explain the comment, which Trump on Friday said he did not make. "They are all talk and no action", Trump tweeted. Brewster described Trump's reported comments as "an offense, but (not) just to those in Haiti and African countries but to everyone in the US, our embassies and anyone who has a sense of humanity".

Lewis said that Trump had undermined 25 years of African goodwill towards the U.S. Maybe not the Trump family and his fellow billionaires, but the people who have been paying for their elders' Social Security and Medicare every payday may not be so lucky.

LGBT rights advocates in Haiti on Friday condemned President Trump after he reportedly described their country as a "shithole".

Groups such as Mehlman's helped torpedo immigration overhauls in 2006 and 2013, but they have few overt supporters in Washington. As is the custom for most presidents, Trump is not expected to participate, but she does hope he will observe the holiday. Trump questioned why the USA should accept more immigrants from Haiti and Africa over places like Norway.

Chandigarh stalking case: Accused Barala claims innocence
NEW DELHI: on Saturday rejected as a "blatant lie" a video released by accused wherein he proclaims his innocence. He alleged that he was made a target by some in an attempt to tarnish his father's political image.

But following angry backlash, Trump took to Twitter to deny the claims. "Internationally, such language will deepen the isolation of the United States, a country that is already losing its global prestige".

Ghana's president Nana Akufo-Addo called Mr Trump's remark "extremely unfortunate", and said that "we will not accept such insults, even from a leader of a friendly country, no matter how powerful".

Civil rights leaders said Friday the president's comments are not new, but are the most recent and glaring proof of Trump's racist views, and shocking to the point that congressional leaders and Americans can no longer ignore his bigotry.

Roy Beck, executive director of Numbers USA, which advocates for reduced immigration, contended the president is mischaracterizing his own immigration agenda. Durbin said people who would be allowed to stay in the US included those who had fled here after disasters hit their homes in places such as El Salvador, Guatemala and Haiti. "It's a mistake to focus on what country anybody comes from".

But in between, the president sat in a White House meeting on immigration policy and denigrated much of the African diaspora as "shithole countries" while expressing a preference for immigrants from Norway, a majority white nation.

Both nations have been praised by the USA government as stable democracies in the region. But Andrew Selee, president of the nonpartisan Migration Policy Institute in Washington, said recent data suggest the current system may be headed there already: Since 2011, 48 per cent of all new legal immigrants have possessed college degrees, well above the 33 per cent of US residents with them.

A routine annual affair for every USA president, Trump's medical checkup is being widely reported and has drawn media attention in view of his political opponents raising questions about his health.
