El Salvador slams 'deplorable' comment attributed to Trump

Withdraw and Apologize 54 African Countries Ask US President Trump Over 'Shithole' Slur

After news of President Donald Trump reportedly referring to Haiti, El Salvador and African nations as "s**thole countries" during an Oval Office meeting circulated on Thursday, Lemon went full-on real talk with viewers. Dick Durbin, who was present at the White House meeting, said he "personally heard" the president use what Durbin called "these vile and vulgar comments".

Reports surfaced Thursday night that President Trump questioned why the us would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa rather than places like Norway.

The condemnations came as Trump found himself at the center of an worldwide firestorm Friday, a day after he reportedly made the comment during a meeting with lawmakers at the White House.

On Friday morning the president said on Twitter that he used tough language during the meeting. "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made".

'My colleague, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of SC, spoke up and made a direct comment on what the president said. According to Time, the president's remarks drew widespread condemnation from world leaders. I was very proud of him, it took courage for what he did.

On Friday, President Trump signed a Martin Luther King Jr.

On Thursday, Haitian President Jovenel Moise demanded a meeting with the top USA diplomat in the country, Charge d'Affaires Robin Diallo, according to State Department officials. "Take them out. Why do we want all these people from Africa here?" The largest is El Salvadoran, the second is Honduran and the third is Haitian and when I mentioned that fact to him he said "Haitians?"

Some media outlets also reported that Trump said in reference to Haitians, "take them out".

"Shithole was the exact word used once not twice but repeatedly", Mr Durbin was quoted to have said.

Trump's out-of-nowhere comment - the White House didn't even deny Trump used the term on Thursday night - was probably a response to "Fox & Friends", which denounced Trump's language.

The group of senators had come to the White House to discuss a potential compromise on immigration.

While Kalondo said the comments were "clearly" racist, she didn't believe they indicated a shift in the USA stance towards Africa. It is a lovely story of America, and that is a great story and that is the story we have today and that is a story we had yesterday and that is what makes this country so exceptional and unique in the first place.

He added, "We can have this conversation, and we don't need someone who's going to make excuses for racism", before continuing the debate with the three remaining panelists.
