April Ryan: 'Mr. President, Are You a Racist?'

April Ryan: 'Mr. President, Are You a Racist?'

Trump tweeted Friday that was not the "language used" and denied saying 'anything derogatory about Haitians'.

Durbin continued, "When we started to describe the immigration from Africa that was being protected in this bi-partisan major, that's when he used his vile and vulgar comments, calling the nations they come from "s***holes".

Trump reportedly made the remarks at a White House meeting on immigration on Thursday.

Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch, who hailed Trump as a great president after passage of the tax cut, Tweeted Thursday: 'I look forward to getting a more detailed explanation regarding the President's comments. But 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 the president speak yesterday.

"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 told reporters on Friday.

At an event on Friday, Trump was honoring the memory of Martin Luther King Jr, the civil rights era activist who was slain in 1968. "No matter the colour of our skin or place of our birth we are all equal". The bipartisan immigration deal has been a hot-button issue, and lawmakers are working to come up with a plan.

Trump, apparently upset with aspects of the deal that only curtailed the visa lottery programme by 50 per cent instead of completely eliminating it, questioned why the USA should be taking people from "shithole countries", The Washington Post reported, citing unnamed people briefed on the meeting.

The Washington Post said that during the meeting he said immigrants from Haiti should be left out of any new agreement approved by Congress. Trump's contemptuous blanket description of African countries startled lawmakers in the meeting and immediately revived charges that the president is racist.

"I came back shaken, personally and politically shaken, by what he said", Durbin said. U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley had asked nations not to vote against the United States and said she would keep track of those who did. The lack of full-throated denials from Trump, GOP lawmakers in attendance and the White House likely speak for themselves.

Thursday's meeting was to discuss a compromise under which DACA would be preserved but a visa lottery and a policy allowing legal immigrants to bring family members into the country would be ended. He said those things.

"The president and all those attending the meeting know what I said and how I feel", Graham continued.

Fasano said Trump's comments are "beyond inappropriate and offensive" and do not reflect the values of the Republican party.

Botswana's government yesterday summoned the United States ambassador to complain over remarks reportedly made by Trump.

The reported comments sparked outrage, with the United Nations slamming his comments as "racist".

"President Trump's comments are racist and a disgrace". During the meeting, according to several sources, Trump was flabbergasted by the inclusion of these countries in the deal.
