Trump signs MLK Jr. proclamation amid cries of racism

Trump signs MLK Jr. proclamation amid cries of racism”

"We would not deign to make comments as derogatory as that about any country that has any kind of socio-economic or other difficulties", Duarte said, adding that much like their African counterparts millions of USA citizens were affected by problems such as unemployment. The park's boundaries include the Prince Hall Masonic Temple, a site that King used as the headquarters for the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, according to a White House spokesman. But the White House later rejected it, plunging the issue back into uncertainty just eight days before a deadline that threatens a government shutdown. Do we need more Haitians?' And then he went on when we started to describe the immigration from Africa that was being protected in this bipartisan measure.

Trump took particular issue with the idea that people who'd fled to the US after disasters hit their homes in places such as El Salvador, Guatemala and Haiti would be allowed to stay as part of the deal, according to the people, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to publicly describe the discussion.

He also said that the United States should have more people coming in from countries like Norway.

It also set off fresh questions of whether Trump's racist language helps or hurts him politically, particularly among the largely white, conservative voters that helped him win the presidency.

On Friday, the Republican president denied using those words.

"Donald Trump represents what I call the middle finger segment of the electorate: people who are fed up with politicians and politics as usual", said Dennis Goldford, a political scientist at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa.

It is "offensive for President Trump to make derogatory statements about countries that do not share policy positions with the USA", the statement read. He's president of the United States.

He said Trump used the most vulgar term "more than once".

"If this report is true, it is absolutely wrong to say or think this", Gov. Rick Scott said in a statement.

"The government of Botswana is wondering why President Trump must use this descriptor and derogatory word when talking about countries with whom the USA has had cordial and mutually beneficial relations for so many years". But it wasn't just Democrats objecting.

There was no mention at that time of the language that sources said Trump had used, details of which were soon leaked. Botswana's government called Trump's comment "reprehensible and racist", while Senegal's President Macky Sall said he was shocked.

Such remarks from the US president could "potentially damage and disrupt the lives of many people", Colville said.

The White House did not deny Trump's comments in a statement Thursday night. "The United States should lead the world in respect for all people". Trump has spoken positively about Haitians in public.

"I have seen the comments in the press, I have not read one of them that's inaccurate", Durbin told reporters in Chicago.

Durbin and Republican Sen. Trump launched his presidential bid in 2015 describing Mexican immigrants as murderers and rapists, vowing to build a wall to keep them out. They're now required to return home by July 2019. The "shithole" controversy due a sharp rebuke from former Mexican President Vicente Fox, a frequent Trump critic.

Trump's racism has clearly driven his policy decisions during his first year in office - from his Muslim ban and his despicable treatment of DREAMers to his ruthless ramp-up of immigration raids and the callous termination of protections for Haitians and Salvadorans who fled natural disaster and violence.

Republican Sens. Tom Cotton and David Perdue and Republican Reps.

The number of extended-family foreign nationals who have resettled in the U.S.in the last decade is greater than the total combined population of Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, San Francisco and Cleveland, the White House has noted in a new ad campaign that seeks to explain and end chain migration.

"We're hoping this conversation would be an opportunity to address the Haiti conversation in the USA once and for all", Altidor said. But why are the others not doing anything today about Trump's lying? "How do six people bind the other 94 in the Senate?" I wouldn't say that. Trump previous year ended the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which provided protection from deportation and the ability to work legally in the country. Federal agencies will run out of money and have to shut down if lawmakers don't pass legislation extending their financing by January 19. That's because 60 votes will be needed to avoid a filibuster and Republicans have a narrow 51-49 majority.
