Haitian embassy thanks those who reached out after Trump's comments

Haitian embassy thanks those who reached out after Trump's comments”

On the eve of the eighth anniversary of the January 12, 2010, natural disaster that devastated Haiti, the president, in the Oval Office, is said to have wondered aloud why he should allow immigrants from "shithole countries" like Haiti, El Salvador and African nations to enter the United States. It favors African countries and was part of an immigration deal Trump was negotiating with a group of Democratic and Republican lawmakers Thursday when he made his explosive comments. Do we need more Haitians?'

Trump allegedly questioned why the USA doesn't admit more immigrants from countries like Norway, whose prime minister visited the White House this week.

In multiple tweets Friday morning, the president said "this was not the language used" and insisted he "never said anything derogatory about Haitians".

"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 public report from Trump's upcoming exam was also likely to be short and sweet, said George Annas, head of the Center for Health Law, Ethics and Human Rights at Boston University School of Public Health. Made up by Dems. There is no transcript or recording of that meeting.

"To every news anchor and commentator who discovered yesterday that Trump is a racist, please explain why you didn't say that six years ago he was lying about the Obama birth certificate", O'Donnell tweeted. "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough but this was not the language used".

The African Union (AU) told the Associated Press it was "frankly alarmed" by Trump's comment. Haiti, which yesterday observed the eighth anniversary of a devastating quake, summoned the USA charge d'affaires for an explanation.

Trump's comments highlighted months of concerns about his lack of focus on Africa, including empty ambassadorial posts in key countries like South Africa, Egypt, Congo and Somalia.

"Mr. President, are you a racist?" she asked. It's not how a president should behave. There is a lot of trite rambling about how the president isn't really reflecting American values when, in fact, he is reflecting the values of many Americans. "We're better than this", Biden wrote. "We respectfully decline the opportunity", one government official said when contacted by Reuters. He ignores the triumphs of immigrants who came from these countries.

In a statement it said it had asked the US government, through its ambassador, to "clarify" if the derogatory remark also applied to Botswana given that there were Botswana nationals living in the United States and others who wished to go there. They sparked bipartisan backlash to the president, with many lawmakers calling them un-American or unhelpful. The President and all those attending the meeting know what I said and how I feel. Ryan also recalled at length his family's own Irish heritage. Trump said, according to these people, referring to countries mentioned by the lawmakers. "But for him to confront the president as he did - literally sitting next to him - took extraordinary political courage and I respect him for it". Tim Scott, R-S.C., told the Post & Courier newspaper that Graham told him that the reported comments are "basically accurate".

However, a senior Democrat who was sitting next to the President at the time, remembers the meeting very differently. And she called on Trump to apologize to the American people.

Trump's latest comments provided ample fodder for talk-show hosts.
