Trump reacts to description of African countries, Haiti as 'shithole'

Trump reacts to description of African countries, Haiti as 'shithole'

The most "tough" thing at the scandalous meeting was the "outlandish proposal" made by the bipartisan group on DACA, he added. And it prompted senators who were present at the meeting to answer questions Friday about their recollections of the startling remarks.

President Trump tweeted he never said anything derogatory about Haitians, other than Haiti is a very poor and troubled country. "When he makes these kind of comments, they aren't borne out by the reality and value of these immigrants". When I mentioned that fact to him, he said, 'Haitians?

"I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians", he said on twitter, adding that democrats had made the accusations up.

Apparently, President Trump's reaction to the upcoming deal left Congress members from both parties in shock, if not for the statement itself, then for the flippancy with which he declared it. Senator Dick Durbin of IL spoke on his bewilderment, calling the language used, "heartbreaking".

Many have called for Mr Trump to apologise over his remarks which they say are racist.

The US ambassador to Panama John Feeley has resigned telling the State Department he no longer feels able to serve US president Donald Trump.

"People have come to this country from everywhere, and people from everywhere have made America great", McCain said in a statement.

But Sen. Dick Durbin also said that South Carolina Sen.

Durbin said "shitholes" was "the exact word used by the president not just once but repeatedly". "Do we need more Haitians?'" Durbin recounted, NBC News reported.

House Speaker Paul Ryan said on Friday that Trump's slur about Africa was "very unfortunate, unhelpful".

Garcon said many Americans are just unaware of the many contributions Haitians have made across the country both before and after the 2010 quake devastated their homeland. "That was the nature of this conversation".

Overall, Republicans believe they have more time to deal with the deadline for the program for young undocumented immigrants, known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, after letting the heat from the president's comments cool off.

The Washington Post reported Thursday that Trump asked, "Why are we having all these people from s-hole countries come here?" during the lawmakers meeting at the White House.

There are 11 million people coming through the southern border 'cause they come from countries where they can't find work, and life is miserable.

Dr. Ronny Jackson says in a statement released by the White House that Trump's physical Friday "went exceptionally well".

"Those places are unsafe, dirty, they're corrupt and they're poor and that's the main reason those immigrants are trying to come here, and you would too if you lived there".

This month, President Donald Trump's health has been a popular topic.

"Jesus Christ himself, a person of color, an immigrant, would not be welcome in Trump America", Geren wrote on her Facebook page.

"He continued: "....countries which are doing badly.
