African Union demands apology from Trump over racist comment

JB Pritzker, a Democrat running for IL governor, released the following statement Friday: "I've said it before and I'll say it again: Donald Trump is a racist and a xenophobe who has never had the dignity to be in the White House", said JB Pritzker.

The Washington Post Thursday broke a story that Trump used the expletive during bipartisan talks with lawmakers discussing legislation to protect immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and Africa. The group also implied that the Trump administration harbors misconceptions about Africa and its people.

"For the first representative of the United States of America to speak in such a manner is quite troubling and offensive", Jean said in the statement.

In Geneva, the United Nations human rights office said the "racist" remarks would incite xenophobia.

Former US ambassador to the UN Samantha Power has shared the statement on Twitter, saying: "Whoa". He said Trump used the most vulgar term "more than once".

He was referring to comments reportedly made by Trump during a meeting on Thursday with lawmakers about immigration reform, demanding to know why the United States should accept citizens from "shithole" countries.

El Salvador's foreign ministry said the U.S. president had "implicitly" accepted the use of "harsh terms detrimental to the dignity of El Salvador and other countries".

He also said China and Russian Federation , which have not been invited, will be briefed on the discussions after the meeting. Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha will attend a meeting of foreign ministers set to open in Vancouver on Tuesday.

Trump denounced the deal reached by a group of six Republican and Democratic senators as too weak and insisted he did not use the word "shithole" to describe Haiti and African countries.

"To no surprise the president tweeted this morning, denying that he used those words", said Durbin. It is not true. Never said 'take them out.' Made up by Dems.

"I can not believe that in the history of the White House, in the Oval Office, any president has ever spoken words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday", Durbin told reporters.

"There is a serious need for dialogue between the USA administration and the African countries".

Congresswoman Mia Love did not take Trump's utterances too lightly and released a statement addressing them.

According to the senator, the president's response was simply to respond: "That's a good line".

Just before Christmas, a New York Times report emerged alleging that Trump had said people from Haiti "all have AIDS", that Nigerians all live in huts and that Afghanistan is full of terrorists.
