African states demand Trump apologise for racist remark

African states demand Trump apologise for racist remark

According to The Washington Post, during an Oval Office meeting on Thursday with us senators to discuss the status of some immigrants in the country, President Trump described Haiti, El Salvador and unspecified African countries as "shitholes".

Trump had questioned why the United States would want to accept immigrants from Haiti and African nations, referring to some as "shithole countries", according to two sources familiar with the comments.

Trump's reported comments, made during closed-door White House talks on an immigration deal on Thursday, were a reaction to a plan drafted by a bipartisan group of senators to protect juvenile immigrants from deportation and make other changes to immigration laws and border security.

As President Trump has cracked down on illegal immigration and reportedly disparaged the "shithole" countries immigrants leave, there's at least one place from which he'd like more immigration: Norway.

Mr Trump tweeted yesterday: "The language used by me at the Daca meeting was tough, but this was not the language used".

Liberal MP Celina Caesar-Chavannes, a parliamentary secretary to the minister of worldwide development, did respond to reports of Trump's comments on Thursday evening.

And he wrote: "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians".

Trump preceded that message with a tweet that simply said: "America First!"

US Resumes Accepting DACA Renewals
Salinas she can't take a permanent teaching position because her work permit would expire in the middle of next year. Donna Salcido, immigration services coordinator for InterServ, said there are about 15 St.

Separately, Durbin told reporters he had not seen a single news report about the President's words that was false. "Probably should record future meetings-unfortunately, no trust!"

The U.S. granted temporary protected status (TPS) to Haitians after the quake.

But people in the Nordic nation - previous year named the happiest place on earth - have no desire to move to the United States, according to a report on Norwegian national TV.

Former Presidents Clinton and George W. Bush visited Haiti's capital, Port-au-Prince, to lead USA fundraising efforts following the January 12, 2010, quake. "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made-a big setback for DACA!" "They weren't shithole then, and they certainly aren't now".

But U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, who was at the meeting, insists the Republican president used the vulgar term.

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.

She added that Norwegians generally didn't want "to be flattered by this U.S. president in this way".
