Trump language on Africa unacceptable, racist: Ghana

14 January 2018

A Haitian church in Rockville, Maryland, held a prayer vigil Saturday after President Donald Trump allegedly made obscene comments about Haiti and African countries.

White House officials defend the role of Trump aide.

Critics of the president, including some in his own Republican Party, attacked the vulgar comments he made behind closed doors.

The Post, which cited people briefed on the meeting, quoted Trump as asking why the United States attracted immigrants from "shithole countries" such as African nations, Haiti or El Salvador, rather than - for instance - wealthy and overwhelmingly white Norway.

We have heard from conservatives who defend Mr. Trump and defend this remark. and saying that, well, these countries are shitholes, and that's why people are trying to get out of them.

He calls it tough talk, and his defenders say that Trump is just putting "America First", like he said he would do when he was running for president.

The Falcons attempted a pass play with one minute left, but Ryan was unable to connect with Jones for the game-winning score. Nick Foles needed a defender's knees to complete a throw for a Philadelphia Eagles first down against the Atlanta Falcons .

The remarks, Mr Durbin said, were "vile, hate-filled and clearly racial in their content". The choice is yours: denounce President Trump and work on legislation that reflects the values of our country, like the Dream Act, or go down as enablers of a racist regime. There is no other word you can use but "racist".

Multiple senators of both parties confirmed or suggested Friday that Trump used those words.

- Congressional Progressive Caucus Co-Chairs Rep. Raúl Grijalva (D-AZ) and Rep. Mark Pocan (D-WI) released the following statement in response to racist remarks made this week by President Trump during bipartisan immigration discussions at the White House.

The bipartisan immigration deal that Trump rejected includes a pathway to citizenship for the young immigrants in the USA illegally that would take up to 12 years, according to details of the agreement obtained Saturday by The Associated Press.

Mr Trump previous year ended the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals scheme, which provided protection from deportation along with the ability to work legally in the US.

She said, "This behavior is unacceptable from the leader of our nation" and called on Trump to apologize to the American people "and the nations he so wantonly maligned". "Our bipartisan group continues to build support for the only deal in town", Durbin said in a statement on Friday.

Senior congressman Mike Simpson said: "The rhetoric just makes it more hard, and that's unfortunate. Speaker Ryan and Majority Leader McConnell can not continue to claim ignorance and stay silent as President Trump denigrates allies and does lasting damage to our standing in the world".

Democrats want protections for Dreamers included in a measure on government spending, which must pass by a January 19 deadline to avoid a government shutdown.

His comments drew a chorus of condemnation inside the United States and internationally, especially in Africa. Durbin said people who would be allowed to stay in the USA included those who had fled here after disasters hit their homes in places such as El Salvador, Guatemala and Haiti.

Once we came to the United States, we were welcomed.

"He said: 'Put me down for wanting more Europeans to come to this country". The president and his allies have said the US should move to a "merit-based" system rather than admitting people based on family ties, referring to anyone but spouses and minor children as "extended family". Mr Durbin told reporters in Chicago. Richard Durbin of IL, the lone Democrat present in the Oval Office at the time, said Trump's denial was false and the president had said things that were "hate-filled, vile and racist". "I've not read one of them that's inaccurate".
