Haiti wants clarification on Trump's comments, says ambassador

Haiti wants clarification on Trump's comments, says ambassador Haiti wants clarification on Trump's comments, says ambassador

Trump was unapologetic, denied being racist and blamed his usual scapegoat - the media.

Maravi Post established that the US President made the controversial remarks on Thursday when he questioned why the US would accept any more immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa rather than from Norway.

Amie Mdoob, a Wichita business owner, says she and many other African immigrants in the city have worked hard to be productive and contribute to their country.

CNN political analyst and White House reporter April Ryan outlined a unique way for people to oppose President Donald Trump's reported comments that some foreign nations are "s-hole countries". Democratic Senator Dick Durbin of IL, who was present at the meeting, said the reports were accurate and that "shithole was the exact word used once not twice but repeatedly".

Senator Dick Durbin of IL, the only Democrat in the room, said Mr Trump had indeed said what he was reported to have said. "He said those hate-filled words".

Robert Reich, former Secretary of Labor under President Bill Clinton, compared Mr Trump's comments to Nazism. The White House has not denied the language, nor have the several Republican lawmakers in the meeting. Durbin maintains that he heard the comments firsthand, as do other sources.

However, Trump said Friday he's not on board with the proposal - partly because of the wall he wants built along the U.S. -Mexico border.

President Donald Trump suggested the United States should bring more immigrants from Norway and not "shithole countries".

"Very very sad, I was so shocked, I'm still shocked, I can't believe he said that", says Weedor Mcdoweel, originally fromlLiberia whose lived in the U.S for almost seven years.

We agree with many priorities that Republicans in Washington have pursued this year. The president was discussing immigration reforms and reportedly expressed disdain about having to take some populations. "Made up by Dems".

A senior official of the ruling African National Congress (ANC) on Friday rebuked U.S. President Donald Trump's "shithole" remarks about developing countries.

No tape is expected to be released as the comment was allegedly made in a private meeting, and it's unclear whether a recording even exists.

In a statement it said it had asked the USA government, through its ambassador, to "clarify" if the derogatory remark also applied to Botswana given that there were Botswana nationals living in the United States and others who wished to go there. "We have a right and a responsibility to hold the president to a higher standard".

"The African Union Mission condemns the comments in the strongest terms and demands a retraction of the comment as well as an apology to not only the Africans but to all people of African descent around the globe, " reads the statement.
