Trump language on Africa unacceptable, racist: Ghana

Share

The president reportedly questioned why the United States would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa rather than nations like Norway.

Trump denied the racist remarks, tweeting on Friday that the language he used "was tough, but this was not the language used", as he called for a "merit-based system of immigration and people who take our country to the next level". Trump tweeted Friday morning: "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used".

He doesn't deny that Trump possibly used the word "shithole" to describe Haiti and Africa, but he believes it's been taken out of context. The comment degraded immigrants from Haiti and other African countries.

On the anniversary, many people want to focus on honoring those who lost their lives.
