'S**thole' countries hit back at Trump

El Salvador's government on Friday sent the United States a formal letter of protest at comments attributed in the media to President Donald Trump that characterized the homelands of some immigrants as "shithole" countries.

The group wants Sen.

Mr Trump did not respond to several questions about the incident, including whether he actually used vulgar language to describe African nations. There is no transcript or recording of that meeting.

South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, the chamber's lone black Republican, told the Charleston Post and Courier, "if that comment is accurate, the comment is incredibly disappointing".

Siplin's district includes Orlando's tourist district, where many Haitian immigrants are employed.

"In addition to being insulting to us, more importantly it's quite disrespectful and insulting to the people that we're trying to help and the friends and colleagues that we've made there over the last eight years", Furey said in an interview. 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 cuts like a knife", National Action Network State President Elder James Johnson said of the remarks.

The president's latest comments drew reactions from overseas on Friday.

Brokerages Expect Archer Daniels Midland Company (ADM) to Announce $0.71 EPS
PRICE T ROWE ASSOCIATES INC /MD/ also announced decreased position in Archer-Daniels-Midland Company ( ADM ) during the quarter. In the case of Archer-Daniels-Midland Company (NYSE: ADM ), Zacks tracked 12 brokers to create the consensus EPS estimate.

But Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), who attended Thursday's meeting, asserted that those quotes were accurate.

"He said these hate-filled things and he said them repeatedly", Durbin said during a press conference at an MLK breakfast Friday.

A White House statement issued Thursday notably did not deny that Trump used the vulgarity to refer to African countries, but on Friday morning, Trump shifted gears.

Mr Altidor added that he believed the inflammatory comments made by Trump were "based on stereotypes".

"I think you all know that I am not going to opine on what the president may or may not have said".

"Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people", he said.

"The American ideal is embraced by people all over the globe". But his campaign was accused of being rooted in racism from the start; calling Mexicans rapists, battling parents of a Muslim soldier killed during war, supporting violence against minority protesters at his rally and vehemently supporting a wall between the United States and Mexico. However, we can not sacrifice one group of immigrants for another. During the short ceremony the president told attendees, "I will now sign the proclamation making January 15, 2018 the Martin Luther King Jr. federal holiday, and encourage all Americans to observe this day with acts of civic work and community service in honor of Dr. King's extraordinary life.and it was extraordinary indeed".
