Brooklyn Politicians Respond To Trump's "Shithole Countries" Comment

Brooklyn Politicians Respond To Trump's

Day event in the Roosevelt Room, a reporter directly asked Trump to face up to his comments, the Hill reported.

Their strongly-worded message follows an emergency meeting after the United States president used vulgar language to reject an immigration bill, asking why the USA would take in more people from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa. Richard Durbin, the Senate's second-ranking Democrat, appeared to confirm those reports on Friday.

The White House did not initially deny the remark on Thursday, but Trump suggested in a tweet Friday that the "shithole" comment was "not the language used".

During the signing Trump, accompanied by Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson and King's nephew Isaac Newton Farris in the White House, praised the civil rights icon's "faith and love for humanity".

According to the Washington-based news website, AU said that Trump's remarks "dishonour the celebrated American creed and respect for diversity and human dignity".

We shouldn't be evaluating immigrants on the basis of what they can do for us.

But the strategist was never able to recover from a Trump statement that blasted him as having "lost his mind". Mercer is part owner of Breitbart News and has close ties to the Trump administration.

Trump "in the course of his comments, said things which were hate-filled, vile, and racist".

Durbin said people who would be allowed to stay in the US included those who had fled here after disasters hit their homes in places such as El Salvador, Guatemala and Haiti.

Mr. Trump's comment has triggered widespread condemnation.

In 2009 Trump's predecessor, Barack Obama, chose Ghana's capital Accra to set out his foreign policy goals for Africa in a speech in which he said he saw Africa "as a fundamental part of our interconnected world". "When it came to the issue of 'chain migration, ' I said to the president, 'Do you realize how painful that term is to so many people?' African Americans believe that they migrated to America in chains". Sorry, but there is no other word one can use but "racist". "Take them out", he said. "And whether you vote for me or you don't vote for me, I really want to be your greatest champion, and I will be your champion whether you vote for me or not". "I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius....and a very stable genius at that!"

The president's latest comments drew reactions from overseas on Friday.

The president's tacky and racist remarks came in response to a senator's request for Trump to reinstate the temporary protected status for Haitians and Salvadorans. Those affected have until 2019 to leave the USA or, if eligible, seek alternative immigration status. He tweeted Friday that he used "tough" language but "not that language", which was being taken as a denial of the "sh*thole" comment, although Mr. Trump did not specifically reference that phrase in his denial.
