Trump denies he used vulgarity about Africa

"In the course of (Trump's) comments, he said things that were hate-filled, vile and racist", the IL senator said Friday.

But, Rep. Cedric Richmond, D-Louisiana, released a statement saying, "President Trump's comments are yet another confirmation of his racially insensitive and ignorant views".

Durbin, an Illinois Democrat, on Friday told reporters that Trump questioned why the usa would accept more immigrants from Haiti and that he referenced "shithole countries" in Africa.

Arizona Republican Sen. Jeff Flake, who was briefed by Durbin and a fellow GOP Senator who attended the meeting, confirmed that version of events to CNN.

The government of Botswana issued a blistering statement Friday in response to President Donald Trump's reported remarks about "shithole countries".

"And we know how his restrictive immigration policies are hurting our people in the Caribbean, Mexico and Central America, a lot of them reunited here in the Bolivarian Alliance".

Reports of the president's language referring to people of colour from the other countries drew criticism from US lawmakers of both major parties and critics overseas who said they could not be described as anything but racist.

The president's remarks on Thursday come on the heels of a media firestorm over Michael Wolff's tell-all book detailing the inner workings of the Trump White House.

International Business Machines Corp. (IBM) Shares Bought by Swiss National Bank
Fuller And Thaler Asset Mngmt accumulated 10,800 shares. $912,960 worth of stock was sold by Okun Andrew on Friday, December 15. RBC Capital Markets maintained International Business Machines Corporation (NYSE:IBM) on Tuesday, August 15 with "Hold" rating.

Q. "Do you think that this is far and away more egregious than what [other presidents] said?" "We're going to change that narrative and focus on what really matters, and not those comments".

He said "oh that's a good line" And then when I talked to him about the impact this has on family unification in a nation that values families with the flag as the most important symbols of our future, they scoffed at this notion. "Do we need more Haitians?'".

Paul G. Altidor, Haiti's ambassador to the United States, said Haitian officials "vehemently condemn" Trump's comments, which he said were based on stereotypes. Never said 'take 'em out.' Made up by Dems.

Chilean Foreign Minister Heraldo Muñoz also took to Twitter, stating that his country welcomes immigrants who are attempting to improve their lives and who would be a contribution to any Latin American society. "So, I see this as a thing to celebrate", he said.

The sources spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to publicly describe the conversation.

Immigration legislation has become time-sensitive because when Trump ended the DACA program in September he gave Congress six months to come up with a legislative solution before announcing that deportations would begin.

A former American president, Bill Clinton, on Friday said Haitians and African are not from "Shitholes" as allegedly described by President Donald Trump. "The so-called bipartisan DACA deal presented yesterday to myself and a group of Republican Senators and Congressmen was a big step backwards", he said.
