Trump's pungent, profane insult to immigrants

"United States deeply respects the people of #Africa & values its partnerships with them". "This behavior is unacceptable from the leader of our nation", she said.

Following news of the comments, several Congressional members called on him to apologize.

"The world is witnessing a new low today with this #ShitholeNations remark! totally unacceptable! uncalled for moreover it shows a lack a respect and IGNORANCE never seen before in the recent history of the United States by any President!" They want to reduce legal immigration, require employers to verify workers' citizenship and block federal grants to so-called sanctuary cities that hinder federal anti-immigrant efforts. "Take care of our Military, and our Country, FIRST!". They taught their children to do the same. Trump had said, according to these people, referring to countries mentioned by the lawmakers.

Trump reportedly grew frustrated with lawmakers who floated restoring protections for immigrations from Haiti, El Salvador and African nations as part of an immigration agreement.

When he launched his presidential campaign, he referred to Mexicans as "rapists", and a year ago he said there were good people on "both sides" of clashes between neo-Nazis and protesters in Charlottesville.

"The American people don't want that style of immigration reform", Cotton told reporters about the bipartisan senators' offer.

"In the spirit of the people of Haiti we feel in the statements, if they were made, the president was either misinformed or miseducated about Haiti and its people", Paul G. Altidor said in a statement.

So our president believes we have too many immigrants coming to the USA from "shithole" countries - like Haiti. He has said Mexican immigrants were "bringing crime" and were "rapists". The world is witnessing a new low today with this "s***hole nations" remark.

However, not everyone condemned the president's remarks. It's a dignity many in this White House could learn from. "I'm sorry, and we are fighting for you".

Meanwhile, White House officials told journalists that they weren't anxious about Trump's comments because they would be popular with his base. Trump told senators in the Oval Office, according to a source briefed on the meeting.

Associated Press writers Elias Meseret in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia; Sam Mednick in Juba, South Sudan; Joe Mwihia in Nairobi, Kenya and Sam Olukoya in Lagos, Nigeria contributed.

During the meeting, Dick Durbin, of IL, the chamber's No 2 Senate Democratic leader, explained that as part of the deal, a lottery for visas that has benefited people from Africa and other nations would be ended, though there could be some other way for them to apply.

"The Government of Botswana is wondering why President Trump, must use this descriptor and derogatory word, when talking about countries with whom the U.S. has had cordial and mutually beneficial bilateral relations for so many years", it added.

Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, a close Trump ally, called on the president to explain his words. His comment Thursday that he wanted to welcome more Norwegian - i.e. white - immigrants was along the same lines.

"Not only does he think brown countries are sh*t-holes, he thinks, what, we're never going to know what he said?" he said.

CNN political analyst David Gergen said Trump's message was "if you are not white, you are not welcome. There is unemployment in the US, there are people who don't have healthcare services", Duarte told reporters.

"I probably have a very good relationship with Kim Jong Un of North Korea", Trump said.

"SHAME ON TRUMP!", said former president Laurent Lamothe on Twitter. "These are human beings, not commodities", Colville said. "I'll take a downtrodden Haitian, Salvadoran or African who hungers for and will defend freedom and opportunity in America over a privileged bigot who'd sell our liberty to the highest bidder any day", he said.

The Trump administration on Monday rescinded long-standing protections for around 200,000 Salvadoran natives who had fled civil war in their homeland and resided in the United States for decades.
