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. The White House did not deny them. There is no other word you can use but "racist".
On Thursday, Trump was meeting lawmakers to discuss a proposal for an immigration plan when he reportedly grew agitated as the conversation turned to citizens of Haiti and El Salvador, and immigrants from the African continent.
"Haitians don't deserve such treatment", said Paul Altidor, the Haitian ambassador. "I think it fundamentally poisons the relationship with numerous countries". "I called him a racist and pathological liar then".
Last September, Senators Perdue and Cotton proposed the RAISE Act, which would put the United States on a merit-based immigration system similar to Canada and Australia. This is great news to foreign dictators, who want their people to believe that we were lying about equality and freedom.
Usa, Donald Trump: "Stop a immigrati da Paesi-cesso"
Il presidente ha anche annullato una visita in Gran Bretagna il mese prossimo per inaugurare la nuova ambasciata Usa a Londra . Non meno forti le opinioni che aveva espresso sui rifugiati siriani.
African Union ambassadors to the United Nations demanded an apology from US President Donald Trump for his racist remark on the people of Africa.
"The words used by the president, as related to me directly following the meeting by those in attendance, were not 'tough, ' they were abhorrent and repulsive", tweeted Arizona Sen.
An emotional Sunny Hostin on "The View" Friday, noting that her husband's family is from Haiti, said she's always resisted labeling Trump because she couldn't look into his heart. And I told him we had an agreement and I wanted to present it to him.
Some of the comments were published in a new book about Trump's first year, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" by Michael Wolff, which White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has denounced as "complete fantasy" for portraying her 71-year-old boss as undisciplined and in over his head as president.

Agents said they targeted about 100 7-Eleven stores nationwide Wednesday to open employment audits and interview workers. Early on Wednesday morning, a team of ICE agents were sent to a series of 7-Eleven stores to conduct investigations.
But Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina), whom Durbin said had voiced objection to Trump's comments during the meeting, issued a statement that did not dispute the remarks.
Trump was widely derided previous year after twice referring to Namibia as "Nambia" at the September meeting.
"I'm not the only one that does not remember that being said".
"He said those hateful things, and he said them repeatedly", Durbin told reporters, confirming several reports of the heated Oval Office meeting a day earlier. He said there were "very fine people on both sides" after violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, left one counter-protester dead. Some Democrats are threatening to withhold their votes - which Republicans will need to push that legislation through Congress - unless an immigration accord is reached. The deal also would include restrictions on a program allowing immigrants to bring some relatives to the U.S.
