White House doctor declares Trump 'in excellent health'

"Given the historical reality of how many Africans arrived in the United States as slaves, this statement flies in the face of all accepted behaviour and practice", AU spokeswoman Ebba Kalondo said to the Associated Press.

Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., who attended the Oval Office meeting Thursday, and peopled briefed on the conversation said Trump did make the comments as reported: He questioned why the USA would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa as he rejected a bipartisan immigration deal.

In a statement released after an emergency session, the group said it was "extremely appalled at and strongly condemns the outrageous racist and xenophobic remarks attributed to the president of the United States of America as widely reported by the media".

Civil rights leaders said Friday the president's comments are not new, but are the most recent and glaring proof of Trump's racist views, and shocking to the point that congressional leaders and Americans can no longer ignore his bigotry. Trump didn't answer this or any other question shouted by reporters about his remarks.

The president also has backed a long-shot bill authored by two Republican senators that would sharply cut the number of immigrants allowed into the country and prioritize those who speak English, have a doctorate and have existing job offers. When he was running for office, Trump released a glowing report from his personal physician in NY, who said Trump would be "the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency".

Ghana is widely seen as a stable, peaceful country in an often turbulent region, and has close ties to the United States.

Trump's derogatory remarks cited by the Washington Post and New York Times were in reference to African countries and Haiti.

Almost 700,000 Dreamers are at risk of losing deportation relief and work permits ― or already have ― because Trump ended the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA. Richard Durbin of IL, the lone Democrat present in the Oval Office at the time, said Trump's denial was false and the president had said things that were "hate-filled, vile and racist".

The program extends legal protections to 800,000 immigrants who entered the United States illegally as children.

Alexis Sanchez given Friday deadline to join Manchester United
Wenger also dismissed speculation that he could leave the club himself this summer if Arsenal have another disappointing season. Sanchez's family have arrived in London as talks of an Arsenal exit grows.

Trump had been quoted as saying during a meeting at the White House earlier in the week, "Why do we want all these people from Africa here?"

Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton weighed in, noting that Trump dismissed Haitians on the eve of the eighth anniversary of a deeply destructive natural disaster. This is the time but, day by day, they are blowing the one great opportunity they have.

To Democrats and some historians, there is little dispute given the president's own words and actions.

Botswana's Ministry of International Affairs summoned the U.S. ambassador to complain about Trump's disparaging comments.

"Following comments by the President, I said my piece directly to him yesterday".

Trump has called himself the "least racist person that you've ever met".

Hard-line immigration activists, who prefer the term "restrictionists", argue that the system they espouse - fewer overall migrants, an end to the family-based system that favors relatives of people already legally in the US and a greater emphasis on picking immigrants with skills - is not racially motivated.

"If that's not racism, I don't know how you can define it", Florida representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, a Republican, told WPLG-TV in Miami.
