Trump Must Apologize for 'Shithole' Remark, African Countries Say

Trump Must Apologize for 'Shithole' Remark, African Countries Say

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

The White House previously hadn't denied the remarks had been said. Further, the Post reported, Trump requested that Haitians not have their TPS status restored, asking: "Why do we need more Haitians?" and "Take them out".

"These insulting and reprehensible statements in no way reflect the virtues of wisdom, restraint and discernment that must be cultivated by any high political authority", the statement said, adding that Trump's remark "reflects a totally erroneous and racist view of the Haitian community and its contribution to the United States".

There also has been a larger industry discussion on whether to label the president of the United States as a "racist" - on air and in chyrons - on television.

On Twitter, President Macky Sall of Senegal wrote: "I am shocked by President Trump's comments on Haiti and Africa".

Mr. Trump tweeted: "Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country".

The tone of discussion had looked very different early on Thursday. Durbin called the moment, "heartbreaking".

Though the White House flatly denied the report, given Trump's other colorful language to describe non-white foreigners, it certainly seems credible.

Del Potro , the 2009 US Open champion and Auckland victor , beat Ferrer 6-4, 6-4 to continue his strong form from the end of last season, which included victory in Stockholm and losing the Basel final to Roger Federer.

Graham and Durbin laid out the details of their proposed legislation. As president, Trump has reportedly said that he believes Haitians coming to the United States "all have AIDS".

The president added that he wanted "a merit based system of immigration and people who will help take our country to the next level" and "safety and security" for Americans. And to this day, as I'm talking to you, we have Haitians in universities who are professors here.

On Friday, AU chief Moussa Faki's spokeswoman Ebba Kalondo had also said Trump's comment "truly flies in the face of accepted behaviour and practice".

In the event that you had any lingering doubts that President Donald Trump is a racist, it's time to throw away that uncertainty.

"For the president to make that type of statement, it's brutal".

"The so-called bipartisan DACA deal presented yesterday to myself and a group of Republican Senators and Congressmen was a big step backwards", Trump tweeted.

After an emergency session to weigh Trump's remarks, the group of African ambassadors to the United Nations said it was "concerned at the continuing and growing trend from the U.S. administration towards Africa and people of African descent to denigrate the continent and people of colour".
