Donald Trump should apologize for remarks: African states

The president had grown frustrated with lawmakers Thursday in the Oval Office when they discussed protecting immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries as part of a bipartisan immigration deal, according to several people briefed on the meeting.

The Washington Post reported Wednesday that Trump used the word "shithole" during a meeting on immigration reform to refer to African countries and Haiti.

"President Trump's racist comments about immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador, and countries in Africa are absolutely sickening, even for him", her statement reads.

Trump criticised immigration to his country from El Salvador, Haiti and the African continent, by calling the group "shithole countries" at a meeting with Congress members at the White House on Thursday, according to U.S. media. Richard Durbin of IL - after Trump reportedly made the comment at an Oval Office meeting, where he was also is claimed to have said disparaging things about Haitian immigrants. He also reportedly suggested that the U.S. should bring in more people from countries like Norway.

President Trump tweeted he never said anything derogatory about Haitians, other than Haiti is a very poor and troubled country.

"When the question was raised about Haitians, for example - we have a group that have temporary protected status in the United States because they were the victims of crises and disasters and political upheaval". But the suggestion Trump directed his wrath at these nations or their governments rather than their residents who are desperate to escape to a better life here is at odds with his record and with the message received by those in the room. Why should we accept any less from the President of the United States of America?
