Dick Durbin admonishes Trump for 'shithole' comments

Withdraw and Apologize 54 African Countries Ask US President Trump Over 'Shithole' Slur

On Friday, the Republican president denied making the vulgar referenced during the meeting.

After The Washington Post first reported Mr. Trump's remarks on Thursday, later confirmed by CBS News' Nancy Cordes, the White House did not deny the comment in a statement.

The government said Trump should apologize if he made such comments, and summoned the top USA diplomat in the country for an explanation.

The reported comments sparked outrage, with the United Nations slamming his comments as "racist".

In a series of tweets early Friday, he said that was not the language he used.

African immigrants in the United States defended their countries on social media, highlighting their education, careers and accomplishments, after U.S. President Donald Trump questioned why the nation should want people from "shithole countries".

The president has apparently denied the reported comments, stating on Twitter that "the language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used". Congressman Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) said, "We can now say with 100 percent confidence that the president is a racist who does not share the values enshrined in our Constitution or Declaration of Independence". Colbert said, impersonating Trump. I congratulate Botswana for showing the way.

"Do we sue President Trump for saying those things?"

"It is especially painful to me because I served in the United States navy and this is not the country I signed up to fight and possibly die for", Lo said.

In an official, frankly worded press release, the government of the African nation Botswana asked the president to be more specific.

On Thursday afternoon in a bipartisan meeting, Republicans and Democrats, and Donald Trump, where they were discussing a plan to codify a deal for dreamers, as well as add additional boarder security, Donald Trump made what might be the most racist comment of his entire presidential history.

US politicians from both parties condemned Mr Trump, with Mia Love, the Republican Representative and daughter of Haitian immigrants, saying the comments were "unkind, divisive, elitist, and fly in the face of our nation's values".

"Why are we having all these people from sh**hole countries come here?" They also happen to have universal healthcare, school paid parental leave, all the things the United States won't guarantee for our citizens, so I doubt we're gonna get any of them coming over here.

"For days and weeks without help from their government or police, the people of Haiti dug through rubble with their bare and bloodied hands to save complete strangers, guided only by the cries of the wounded and the dying", Cooper said. "Trump is unworthy to speak of them!"

Another part of the proposal aimed to assist people from Haiti and El Salvador who have been living in the US for years under a separate temporary residence program that the Trump administration recently scrapped. I think back of presidents throughout history, and I can not imagine a moment where a president sunk to that depth. If such a system is ever implemented, it will probably shift the composition of our immigration away from Latin America and toward South and East Asia (not the Nordic countries). "Why do we need more Haitians".
