African countries demand US President Trump apology over 's**tholes' slur

Botswana's government on Friday announced it was inquiring about the comments through its US ambassador, while the president of Senegal condemned the reported remarks. She said asking if Trump is racist is not enough, that people need to do something that will have an "economic impact".

Kinzinger joined a number of lawmakers in criticizing the president's comments in a statement released Friday.

At least two black bar associations in Florida have denounced President Donald Trump's reported description of Haiti, El Salvador and African nations as "shithole countries". According to those briefed on the conversation, the president used the phrase * a href="http://abc7chicago.com/politics/trump-why-allow-immigrants-from-s***hole-countries/2930875/" *"s***hole countries" while questioning why the US would accept more immigrants from Haiti and nations in Africa, rather than places like Norway.

"My parents came from one of those countries but proudly took an oath of allegiance to the United States and took on the responsibilities of everything that being a citizen comes with. Why do we want all these people from shithole countries?"

US Democratic Senator Dick Durbin, who was present at the meeting, claimed Mr Trump used "vulgar" language, and repeatedly called African nations "sh**holes".

"I condemn this unforgivable statement and this demeaning of the office of the Presidency", Baltimore Rep. Elijah E. Cummings said in a tweet. As always, I look forward to considering additional ideas that could make the proposal even better, ' he said.

Walker says he has heard many different reports on what was actually said during the bi-partisan immigration meeting.

But the deal was rejected by the U.S. president, who contested that people who fled to America after disasters hit their homes in places such as El Salvador, Guatemala and Haiti would be allowed to stay.

Trump denies using the term.

Durbin is part of a bipartisan group of six senators who announced Thursday the framework of a compromise on immigration.

Mr Trump continued: "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians". "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".

"It's one thing to ask if he's a racist and that's OK, but the next thing is, since this continues to happen there needs to be something to dynamic, some kind of leverage", Ryan said.

The president implied Friday morning on Twitter that maybe he should start recording meetings because there is no trust.

Americans deserve to know beyond any doubt exactly how our nation's leader described countries that are home to almost 1.3 billion people.

His comments sparked widespread condemnation yesterday both within the United States and worldwide.

Also angered by the comments was IL state Sen.

The Associated Press reported that the White House did not deny Trump's remark, but issued a statement saying Trump supports immigration policies that welcome "those who can contribute to our society". Never said 'take them out.' Made up by Dems. "He's president of the United States. So, it's not just President Trump who doesn't understand that", added Young.
