Haitian-Americans in South Florida outraged by president's alleged remark

Haitian-Americans in South Florida outraged by president's alleged remark

"Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people", spokesman Raj Shah said in a statement issued after The Washington Post first reported Trump's remarks.

Two days after President Donald Trump described African nations, along with Haiti and El Salvador, as "shithole countries" with undesirable emigrants for the United States, the president of Ghana called the language "extremely unfortunate" and said his nation was not a "shithole country". He also denied saying "anything derogatory about Haitians other than" that Haiti is "a very poor and troubled country".

In a tweet on Friday, Trump denied using the word "shithole", but Durbin insisted that the president had indeed said it.

Q. "Do you think that this is far and away more egregious than what [other presidents] said?" "I have not read one of them that's inaccurate".

Trump's reported comments were also taken personally by Dr. Andrew Furey, an orthopedic surgeon in St. John's, N.L., and founder of Team Broken Earth, a group of medical professionals who responded to the Haitian natural disaster in 2010 and has since returned to the country several times.

There was no mention at that time of the language that sources said Trump had used, details of which were soon leaked. "He goes ahead and makes these racist remarks, throwing fuel to the fire and making it very hard for anybody to be able to reach an agreement with him". The United Nations human rights body said the comments, if confirmed, were "racist". Never said 'take them out.' Made up by Dems.

He clearly showed he could, against Klitschko, but he also struggled to hold off the much older Klitschko at times in that fight. Parker's promoter David Higgins predicted that his fighter will ruin the flawless record of Joshua.

"I don't believe the Democrats really want to see a deal on DACA", he wrote at 9:20 am.

"President Trump referred to African countries, Haiti and El Salvador as shithole countries", Sen.

Alisha Laventure, the daughter of Haitian immigrants and a TV news anchor in Dallas, delivered a powerful rebuttal to President Trump's infamous comments in an Oval Office meeting on Thursday.

His promise is now in question after the comments allegedly made during a private immigration meeting with lawmakers.

Rupert Colville, a spokesman with the United Nations human rights office, earlier slammed Trump's "vulgar language". "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!" "Haitians should not be seen as a bunch of immigrants who come to the United States to exploit USA resources". Baltimore Rep. Elijah Cummings said, "I condemn this unforgivable statement and this demeaning of the office of the presidency".

When asked the implications of having a "racially ignorant" man as POTUS, Farris Jr., obviously mincing words, an ability the president is without, responded with: "it means we have him until 2020 or until something else happens".
