Nigeria summons USA ambassador over Trump's 'shithole' comment

Nigeria summons USA ambassador over Trump's 'shithole' comment”

"The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used", he said.

At least in Boston, which has the nation's third-largest Haitian community after Miami and NY, the delays have already led to job losses, Fleurissaint said.

On Twitter, former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney criticized Trump's comments in the immigration meeting as "inconsistent [with] America's history and antithetical to American values" on Monday. On Monday, Nigeria's foreign minister confirmed to Reuters that the government had summoned the United States ambassador to clarify Trump's remarks.

Republicans who control Congress are expected to try to push another stopgap funding bill and get it to President Donald Trump's desk before a midnight Friday deadline when existing money for federal agencies expires.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee, was asked by Sen.

Saturday's protest will come less than a week after 400 Haitian protesters gathered on Southern Boulevard on Monday to protest the alleged vulgar comments Trump made about Africa and Haiti in a meeting with lawmakers last week.

After that conversation, several people said the president referred to Haiti, El Salvador and African nations as "s***hole countries" and said he preferred to receive immigrants from countries like Norway.

Booker says the words attributed to Trump cast a shadow over millions of Americans from those countries.

"We had a very awesome and productive conversation", LeVell said.

Nielsen testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee that numerous people in the meeting used rough language, including the president, but she didn't specifically recall him using the word Sen.

Still, if President Trump was upset by the reports of his language, he took his time in responding to it - enough time to call around to friends see how well the reports of his slurs were playing with his base. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) and Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) announced they are boycotting Trump's state of the union address. They also were protesting Trump's assertion that the United States should instead bring in more people from countries such as Norway.

In later tweets and statements, he and his defenders went on the attack, accusing Durbin of totally twisting his words.

The Democrats may be less inclined to cooperate now that President Trump is on the defensive after global media criticism that he assailed "s--hole countries"-although the Washington Post, National Review's Rich Lowry and others say aides are now insisting that the president said "s--house countries".

Asked Tuesday about Trump and some Republicans challenging his honesty, Durbin tells reporters, "Politics ain't beanbag".

The internal debate in the West Wing is over whether Trump said "s***hole" or "s***house". Trump also reportedly asked why the US couldn't attract more immigrants from Norway. "But the president I don't think is a racist as we have traditionally known it in this country". It means that many Americans of color understandably view Trump as the president of white America, sharpening a legacy of distrust that will not quickly fade.

Trump defended himself on Sunday, telling reporters "I am not a racist" as he arrived for dinner at his private golf club with the House majority leader, Kevin McCarthy.

"We need a merit based system of immigration, and we need it now!" he added Tuesday.

A century ago, there were nativists who railed against Irish, Italian and Eastern European immigration, claiming that unwashed hordes from poor countries were "mongrelizing" the nation.
