'We won't accept insults from Trump' - Nana Addo

'We won't accept insults from Trump' - Nana Addo

The comments come a day after Trump, in an Oval Office meeting about immigration, referred to a series of nations as "sh-hole countries" and questioned why the United States was not welcoming more people from Norway as opposed to Haiti, El Salvador and African countries.

In an earlier tweet on Friday, Mr. Trump said, "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used". Near the end of a year ago, the White House denied that Trump said Haitians had aids and that Nigerians would never "go back to their huts" in Africa during another immigration briefing.

President Donald Trump spent Thursday night making a flurry of phone calls to friends and advisers - denying he was racist but defending his disparaging comments about Haitians and African countries - as something many people think, but won't say.

In a tweet, Trump said: "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used".

This is a developing story. Dr. Rodney Charitable is a design engineer in the defense industry and a Haitian immigrant who said the portrayal of his country is offensive.

"We have to reform our immigration system, make it more diversified where people from Asia and Europe can come to this country and make it merit-based so if you have a skill you can benefit America", McDonough said. "Made up by Dems", Trump said on his Twitter account.

Senegal's president, Macky Sall, said in a statement that it was "shocked" and that "Africa and the black race merit the respect and consideration of all".

Describing the comments as "extremely unfortunate", President Nana Addo categorically stated that Ghana is "certainly not a racist country".

African Union ambassadors to the United Nations demanded an apology from U.S. President Donald Trump for his "racist remark" on the people of Africa.

"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.

"Racism is not recognized under the law as reason for immigration policy", he said.

But in another tweet on Friday the president denied that he insulted Haitians.

"Botswana government is wondering why Trump use such kind of disruptor as well as derogatory word when talking about countries with whom the U.S. has had cordial and mutual bilateral relations for so many years", reads part of the statement.
