Trump use slur for Africa. Haiti while talking about immigrants

Trump use slur for Africa. Haiti while talking about immigrants

One lawmaker in Ghana called for a boycott by developing countries against the United States until Trump leaves office.

The White House did not deny the account of Trump's use of language, but instead suggested the president was "fighting for permanent solutions" that strengthen the nation, in part through the use of a merit-based immigration system.

Sen. Dick Durbin of IL, the only Democrat in the room, said Trump had indeed said what he was reported to have said.

"Casual Friday at the White House is soon to include hoods and tiki torches at this rate", South African media outlet Daily Maverick says.

Surrounded by African-Americans, including the nephew of the civil rights leader and Republican Ben Carson who delivered a speech, Mr Trump said: "Dr King opened the eyes and lifted the conscience of our nation".

Trump made the comment during a discussion of US visa and immigration policies inside the Oval Office.

The U.N. human rights office says President Donald Trump's reported use of an expletive to describe Africa and other countries could "potentially damage and disrupt the lives of many people".

Trump met this week with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg.

Trump's contempt for convention was also in evidence in a unchained interview with the President that The Wall Street Journal published Thursday and in a Twitter intervention about a House of Representatives debate on the surveillance powers of United States spy agencies that sparked chaos and confusion and questions about Trump's command of the issue.

"The Democrats seem intent on having people and drugs pour into our country from the Southern Border, risking thousands of lives in the process". "We must build a Great Wall ..."

Mr Trump's reported remarks were remarkable even by the standards of a president who has been accused by his foes of racist attitudes and has routinely smashed through public decorum that his modern predecessors have generally embraced. "I want a merit-based system of immigration and people who will help take our country to the next level".

However, not everyone condemned the president's remarks.

Trump's defenders will likely argue that it's more about how educated the country's populaces are and the value their immigrants could bring to the United States. But it wasn't just Democrats objecting.

When he launched his presidential campaign, he referred to Mexicans as "rapists", and past year he said there were good people on "both sides" of clashes between neo-Nazis and protesters in Charlottesville.

Critics also have questioned his mental fitness to serve as president, citing his inability to muster some policy details and his tweets asserting his "nuclear button" is bigger than North Korea's. One said lawmakers in the room were taken aback by Trump's remarks. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians.

The senators had hoped to persuade Trump to support their plan, which pairs increased funding for border security with new legal status for immigrants who were previously protected under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, also known as DACA. He tweets that it would force the U.S. According to sources who attended the meeting, he said: "Why do we need more Haitians?"

"We still think we can get there, " White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said at the White House press briefing.

He added: "When the question was asked about Haitians ... he said, 'Haitians?"

"How do six people bind the other 94 in the Senate?"

According to the Times, Trump also targeted Nigerian immigrants during that meeting, complaining that once they came the United States they would never "go back to their huts".

Federal agencies will run out of money and have to shut down if lawmakers don't pass legislation extending their financing by January 19.

The meeting delivered a significant setback to the bipartisan working group, which first announced the deal earlier on Thursday afternoon.

Democrats have made clear they would not consider some of the suggestions and the demands risk exacerbating already tense talks as both sides are entrenched in negotiating position. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., at the meeting.

But Trump's attitude is hardly a departure, since the comment, in a meeting Thursday with lawmakers debating a Capitol Hill immigration bill, comes from racist rhetoric and imagery fundamental to his political project from the start.

Trump's agreement has always been essential to any immigration deal. Sen.
