Trump uses slur to describe immigrants from Haiti Africa

Trump uses slur to describe immigrants from Haiti Africa

The Vatican newspaper on Friday branded U.S. President Donald Trump's reported comments about African countries and Haiti as "particularly harsh and offensive".

Samantha Power, who served as USA ambassador to the United Nations under President Obama, shared the ambassadors' statement on Twitter.

Using vulgar language, Trump on Thursday questioned why the US would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa rather than places like Norway in rejecting a bipartisan immigration deal.

President Trump has since rejected the claims against him in a series of tweets but White House communicators have however failed to categorically deny that he made those comments.

Mahama's tweet used an altered image of an Oval Office meeting featuring Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to mock that mistake.

Republican lawmakers who were in the Thursday meeting generally sidestepped questions about precisely what Trump said.

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

The Republican president's comments were decried as racist by African and Haitian politicians, by the United Nations human rights office and by U.S. lawmakers from both major parties.

In their statement, the African ambassadors said they were concerned "about the continuing and growing trend from the U.S. administration toward Africa and people of African descent to denigrate the continent and people of color".

Trump also denied saying "anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country".

The union also demanded that Trump formally retract the statement and deliver "an apology not only to the Africans but to all people of African descent around the globe".

Almost 700,000 Dreamers are at risk of losing deportation relief and work permits ― or already have ― because Trump ended the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA.

The program extends legal protections to 800,000 immigrants who entered the United States illegally as children. Isn't Trump demonstrating that he's nothing but a racist and pursuing a policy of "Make America White Again"?

Trump's latest comments provided ample fodder for talk-show hosts. "Great opportunity missed. Too bad!"

"I want safety and security for our people", he added, criticizing the proposed bipartisan deal.

And they spurred a harsh reaction from the United Nations, with rights office spokesman Rupert Colville calling them "shocking and shameful".

Norwegians were firm but polite as they went on social media to point out they preferred to stay in one of the richest countries in the world as calculated by GDP per capita, rather than move to the United States.

It has been almost 24 hours since The Washington Post first reported that President Trump had referred to "shithole countries" during a meeting with lawmakers.

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

Trump has called himself the "least racist person that you've ever met".

Trump tweeted a convoluted denial early Friday but Democratic Senator Dick Durbin pushed back, saying the president repeatedly used the term "shithole" during a Thursday White House meeting on immigration reform.

Trump then made "vile and vulgar comments" about African nations, Durbin said, calling them "shitholes".
