To those who still deny that Trump is racist

To those who still deny that Trump is racist”

So far, the State Department said, the USA charge d'affaires in Haiti and ambassador in Botswana have been called in by their hosts after Trump reportedly dubbed these countries "shitholes".

Trump denied using the term, but Democratic Senator Dick Durbin - who attended the meeting - said the president used it "repeatedly".

Last week, I noted that Donald Trump's erratic behavior, especially on Twitter, had prompted our letter writers to take a more strident tone than usual in their criticism of the president.

Altidor said Foreign Affairs Minister Antonio Rodrigue told him that the United States chargé d'affaires in Haiti, Robin Diallo, had been summoned to explain the reported slur.

"Haitians fought along U.S. soldiers in the Revolutionary War and we continue to be great contributors to American society", the ambassador, Paul Altidor, told MSNBC.

Graham and Durbin are leading efforts to codify protections for so-called "Dreamers", immigrants who came to the United States illegally as children.

The US Supreme Court has long recognised that the president has the power to exclude people from certain countries as long as he can show it's for legitimate national security reasons. "We even made the ultimate sacrifice when we shed our blood in Savannah".

United States President Donald Trump reportedly lashed out in a meeting with lawmakers about immigration reform, demanding to know why the USA should accept citizens from what he called "s***hole" countries, such as Haiti and El Salvador, as well as African nations. I urge you to register to vote for the 2018 elections and get ready.

Trump on Thursday reportedly questioned why the USA would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa. "Period", he said, before refusing to answer questions from reporters.

Shortly after, he tweeted "Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country".

"These comments are against the universal values the worldwide community has been striving for since World War II", Colville said.

According to the Post, the president then said we should bring more immigrants from countries like Norway, whose prime minister he'd met with the day before, and Asian countries, whose immigrants he felt would economically benefit the United States.

House Speaker Paul Ryan called the comments "unfortunate" and "unhelpful", CNN reported.

"He said these hate-filled things and he said them repeatedly", Durbin said during a press conference at an MLK breakfast Friday.

Trump has repeatedly raised questions about the loyalty of Muslim immigrants to the United States claiming, falsely, that Muslims in New Jersey celebrated publicly after the Sep 11, 2001 attacks on NY and Washington.

Immigration has always been a sore point between Philadelphia and Washington, but the remarks attributed to President Donald Trump have underscored the divide. "Do we need more Haitians?'".

"Sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our handsome statues and monuments", Trump tweeted.

Sen. Durbin on Trump comments.

Local Democrats have also reacted. Trump told the group that "together we will build a relationship based on mutual respect", adding that they had a lot of "commonly shared values-maybe full shared values".

The Central American nation's Foreign Ministry says in a statement that "El Salvador demands respect for its fearless and dignified people".
