Trump denies demeaning remarks against African nations

Trump with Cotton Perdue

Inside the White House, staffers were largely unfazed, even as the political and diplomatic fallout mounted. This is the time but, day by day, they are blowing the one great opportunity they have.

On a day when Haitians planned to mourn the dead, outrage swept across the country over Trump reportedly describing Haiti and countries in Africa as "s-hole countries" during an Oval Office meeting on the eve of the anniversary of the 2010 quake.

The president said at the White House that "love was central" to the slain civil rights leader.

The remarks drew a firestorm of criticism, including accusations that the president is a racist and speculation that this could stall talks on immigration reform.

Lemon expressed his unsurprised disgust at Trump, reiterating his numerous racist statements and actions, from calling Mexicans "rapists" to defending neo-Nazis in Charlottesville to saying all Haitians have AIDS.

Rosen said there are jobs and opportunities in the USA for the 50,000 people who left Haiti.

The body has since issued a statement calling for the U.S. leader to apologise for the remarks.

Some local Haitian immigrants are speaking out after President Donald Trump allegedly used derogatory language to describe African countries and Haiti.

The statement, issued late Friday after the African ambassadors held an emergency meeting, comes amid an worldwide outcry over Trump reportedly saying he'd rather have more immigrants from Norway and fewer from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa.

Although Mr. Trump denies using such language, "sh*tholes" was "the exact word used by the president", Durbin recalled.

Durbin added, "When the question was asked about Haitians. he said, 'Haitians?"

Earlier in the week, it hasn't gotten as much attention, but I know former speaker Nancy Pelosi who criticized five of the people working on the immigration bill on her side as 'a bunch of white men.' Well, I wish she hadn't have said that, but I don't think it was racist or sexist.

Trump denies using that specific language, but some who were present, including Illinois Sen. It bothers me that we throw around this allegation being a racist a little too casually now. Donald Trump, for his part, is golfing today.

"My grandmother used to say, 'Digame con quién caminas, y te diré quién eres.' 'Tell me who you walk with, and I'll tell you who you are, ' " said Rep. Adriano Espaillat (D-N.Y.), an immigrant from the Dominican Republic, a country that shares the island with Haiti. Some media outlets also reported that Trump said in reference to Haitians, "take them out". "[The border wall] was not properly funded, Chain & Lottery were made worse and United States of America would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime countries which are doing badly".
