Africans outraged over racist Trump remarks

Norwegians have expressed solidarity with Haiti and several other African nations by saying they do not want to go to the U.S., describing it using the alleged words of Donald Trump as a "s***hole".

But Democratic Senator Dick Durban who was in the meeting with Trump has said the comments were made.

The group is "extremely appalled at, and strongly condemns the outrageous, racist and xenophobic remarks by the president of the United States of America as widely reported by the media", a statement added, demanding a "retraction and an apology".

"Good morning from the greatest most attractive "shithole country" in the world!" "That's all I have to say", says Wangui Muraguri, a Kenyan Entrepreneur in Nairobi. "The president is in excellent health and I look forward to briefing some of the details on Tuesday".

Trump later went on to argue: "Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country".

But Norwegians and their Scandinavian cousins on Twitter made a decision to mock Mr Trump and America itself instead by asking why they would want to go to a country without free healthcare and rampant gun crime. The American Heart Association has said the best types of exercise increase the heart rate and make a person breathe heavily, but that activities like golf don't provide as much cardiovascular benefit since they don't require much extra effort.

Timothy Naftali, a presidential historian and the former director of Nixon's presidential library, said Trump's most recent comments were more jarring both because they were revealed in real time and because they came during the course of a discussion about the laws governing who can gain entry into the United States. Appearing on MSNBC, Alcindor told Rachel Maddow, "Haiti is taking formal steps to let President Trump know they are upset".

El Salvador, also facing an end to protected status for its 200,000 citizens living in the United States, sent a formal letter of protest to the U.S. government over the comments.

When news of the newly discovered Access Hollywood tape broke in 2016, Trump tried to explain his comments away by calling them "locker-room banter". "Never said 'take them out.' Made up by Dems".

"Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?"

Haiti's ambassador to the US says he and the Haitian government "vehemently condemn" the president's remark. America had a chance to push back on its blatant racism and xenophobia, but too many of us just shrugged our shoulders, told U.S. Latinos to relax and thought nothing of it because it seemed too far from the center to take hold.

The Post said that Trump rejected a bipartisan bill that would have restored protections for immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and a handful of African countries.

Trump's latest comments also provided ample fodder for talkshow hosts.

The African Union said Trump's statement "flies in the face of all accepted behavior and practice, " the Associated Press reported.
