Trump denies he used vulgarity about Africa

Share

Trump insisted Friday that he "never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country".

Ambassadors unanimously agreed the resolution after an emergency session to weigh Trump's remarks. So, our history here with the United States goes back a long, long, long way. "Why do we need more Haitians".

It was hardly surprising when the Washington Post reported Thursday that President Donald Trump had referred to Haiti, El Salvador, and African nations as "shithole countries" in an Oval Office meeting.

"The words used by the president, as related to me directly following the meeting by those in attendance, were not 'tough, ' they were abhorrent and repulsive", tweeted Arizona Sen.

"You can not dismiss entire countries and continents as "shitholes" whose entire populations, who are not white, are therefore not welcome", Rupert Colville, spokesman for the United Nations human rights office, told reporters in Geneva.

And since we're also talking about immigration as well, we're hoping the president would take time to meet some of the TPS recipients, to see exactly how much contribution as a community we continue to provide here in this country.

Norway's foreign minister refused to comment on the controversy.

The streaming giant ordered two seasons straight to series in collaboration with the show's masterminds, Warner Bros. U.S. streaming platform Hulu has teamed up with Amblin Entertainment and Warner Bros.to make two brand new seasons.

Trump was widely derided previous year after twice referring to Namibia as "Nambia".

Norwegians reacting on social media were in no hurry to relocate. "Given 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.

Trump's contemptuous blanket description of African countries startled lawmakers in the meeting and immediately revived charges that the president is racist.

Over 3.5 million people were affected.

"In a "negotiation" meeting with the president, one GOP House Leader told the president: 'I can not even stand to look at you,'" Durbin wrote in a post on his Facebook page over the weekend. This behaviour is unacceptable from the leader of our nation.

In Kenya, East Africa's economic hub, political activist Boniface Mwangi pleaded: "Please don't confuse the. leaders we Africans elect with our attractive continent". "Our motherland is the most blessed continent that has been raped by imperialists in collaboration with our shitty misleaders for generations", wrote Kenyan activist Boniface Mwangi on Twitter.

Some Nigerians however did not hold back, with many on Twitter saying their country was a "shithole", but that it was "our shithole" to criticise.

That doesn't sound great, obviously, but it also doesn't sound like it will affect his swing like the rib injury did past year . He says he'll get an electrocardiogram every six months and an MRI once per year.

He said Trump used the most vulgar term "more than once". But as Dara Lind points out, while this debate is complicated, this functionally means large reductions in the numbers of people from countries who already have large immigrant populations here - which means resisting trends shaping our current ethnic and national mix.

Trump's comments highlighted months of concerns about his lack of focus on Africa, including empty ambassadorial posts in key countries like South Africa, Egypt, Congo and Somalia.

Durbin and Graham were told on Thursday that Trump would not agree to the deal.

"It also reinforces the concerns that we hear every day, that the President's slogan Make America Great Again is really code for Make America White Again", Richmond said in.

He will always reject temporary, weak and unsafe stopgap measures that threaten the lives of hardworking Americans, and undercut immigrants who seek a better life in the United States through a legal pathway.

The condemnation has not just been confined to those targeted by Mr Trump's comments, with world leaders denouncing the President's comments.

But Trump and his advisers notably did not dispute the most controversial of his remarks: using the word "s-thole" to describe African nations and saying he would prefer immigrants from countries like Norway instead.
