Donald Trump: Shock over US president's migrants remarks

President Donald Trump has expressed frustration over efforts of some United States lawmakers to protect immigrants from Haiti and African countries, asking why America should accept citizens from "s***thole" countries, triggering protests.

Condemning the comments "in the strongest terms", the AU demanded "a retraction of the comment as well as an apology, not only to the Africans, but to all people of African descent around the globe". We're better than this, ' Biden tweeted Friday morning.

In a statement it said it had asked the USA 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.

Trump said on Twitter on Friday he merely used "tough" language when discussing a new immigration bill with a group of US senators.

There was no mention at that time of the language that sources said Trump had used, details of which were soon leaked.

Trump's contemptuous description of an entire continent startled lawmakers in the meeting and immediately revived charges that the president is racist.

Trump's remarks had a particularly glacial reception from Norwegians, whom he reportedly upheld as shining examples of the immigrants he wants to come to America.

Botswana summoned the United States ambassador to the country to "clarify if Botswana is regarded as a "shithole" country", according to a foreign ministry statement which called Trump's comments "irresponsible, reprehensible and racist".

"I'm sorry but there is no other word for this but racist", a spokesman in Geneva said. He has to know, like we all do, that xenophobic commentary plays well with his base, the people who were more than happy to put him in office because they could seamlessly project their racism and misogyny onto his celebrity persona.

Special status given to about 59,000 Haitian immigrants, protecting them from deportation following the 2010 quake, will end next year following a Trump administration ruling last month.

Colville warns that comments by a major political figure, such as the president of the United States, can have damaging and unsafe consequences.

Although it is being taken as a denial of the "sh*thole" comment, Mr. Trump did not specifically reference that phrase in his denial.

Africans were shocked on Friday to find President Donald Trump had finally taken an interest in their continent.

"Following comments by the President, I said my piece directly to him yesterday".

The US President has provoked fresh controversy after allegedly asking a group of senators why the US had to allow in immigrants from "s***hole countries" in Africa and the Caribbean rather than from places like Norway.

Sean Penn is speaking out following Donald Trump's "disgraceful" comments about immigrants from Haiti and Africa. Trump welcomed Norway's Prime Minister Solberg to the White House on Wednesday; that might be why the Nordic country was on his mind.

The country sent a formal protest note to Washington over the "deplorable expressions" attributed to Trump.

Graham has managed to become an ally of Trump's over the past year, even withstanding a few bumps along the way.

"First thing that came to my mind was: very unfortunate, unhelpful", the Republican leader said of his initial reaction.
