Hillary Clinton Tweets About Trump's 'Ignorant, Racist Views'

After Trump was asked at Thursday's White House meeting if the US would accept more immigrants from Haiti and Africa, the president reportedly questioned why people from "s***hole countries" are coming to America. In the meeting, Trump reportedly questioned why the United States would provide protections for people in Haiti and African nations, calling them "shithole countries".

Sir, - Donald Trump's comment resembled the kind of drunken remark made over a bar by somebody who doesn't know what he's talking about to somebody who doesn't know what he's listening to.

In a series of Tweets early Friday, Trump admitted to using "tough" language but denied using the term "shithole" to describe Haiti and African countries. The president insisted on Twitter Friday that he didn't use that language. It´s about opening the door wider to humanity´s worst side, about validating and encouraging racism and xenophobia that will potentially disrupt and destroy the lives of many people.

More and more countries and organizations are joining the global chorus of condemnation of President Trump's racially-charged comments while speaking to lawmakers in the Oval Office on Thursday.

Democratic Senator Dick Durbin, who was there, told reporters yesterday that Mr Trump used "vile, vulgar" language. Never said 'take them out.' Made up by Dems.

Special status given to about 59,000 Haitian immigrants, that has protected them from deportation following the 2010 natural disaster, will end next year following a Trump administration ruling last month. Trump said. "Take them out". More notoriously, Donald Trump has been vociferously pushing for the USA to effect a travel ban for Muslims from selected countries who have dominant Muslim populations. I want safety and security for our people.

The US President touted the delivery of F-52 jets to Norway, but they only exist in the video game Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.

The UN Office of the High Commissioner on Human Rights (OHCHR) has denounced President Trump's remarks as "shocking and shameful", and "racist".

Botswana said it had summoned the United States ambassador to that country to "express its displeasure" and had asked him whether Botswana "is regarded as a "sh**hole" country". "I'm Don Lemon. The president of the United States is racist", Lemon memorably stated blankly. The president said he has a wonderful relationship with Haitians and suggested future meetings probably should be recorded.
