Akufo-Addo's comments follow a strongly worded African Union statement on Friday and a demand from African ambassadors at the United Nations for a retraction and an apology. The largest group is El Salvador and the second is Honduran and the third is Haitian, and when I mentioned that fact to him, he said, 'Haitians?

The African Union Mission in Washington DC has condemned Donald Trump's derogatory statements allegedly made about Africa and Haiti. "When it came to the issue of 'chain migration, ' I said to the president, 'Do you realize how painful that term is to so many people?' African Americans believe that they migrated to America in chains". Dick Durbin, said Trump said exactly that.

President Trump said, before suggesting that the USA should have more people coming in from countries such as Norway, according to sources who spoke with The Washington Post. "But I don't think he is a racist in the traditional sense".

Trump has seemed to deny using those words but acknowledged on Twitter that he used "tough" language during White House negotiations this week with lawmakers on an immigration bill.

"Shithole? Thought they said he was so impressed with us just last September?"

Haiti's ambassador in Washington has also asked for an apology, as Trump reportedly specifically questioned the protections granted to Haitian immigrants after the quake. "For years, I and others have been trying to tell you, the American people, that this man has been exhibiting bigoted behavior".

The total number of pediatric flu deaths reported this season has now climbed to 20, with seven deaths reported last week. He said at the pharmacy where he works in Dauphin, Man., they've given 1,000 flu shots so far this year, a record number.

For his part, Durbin told the president, "I raised the point If you exclude Haitians from this group of temporary protected people, the conclusion is obvious". What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!'

The White House has not denied the language used at the Thursday meeting on immigration.

The physical exam was conducted by Dr. Ronny Jackson, who has served for Presidents George W. Bush, Obama and Trump, at the Walter Reed National Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, according to Vox. Some media outlets also reported that Trump said in reference to Haitians, "take them out". He has also considered recording all his meetings to prevent similar controversies in the future.

The positive comment on Norway makes the underlying sentiment very clear.

President Donald Trump's dismissal of Haiti and certain African countries with a vulgar expression has created a furor.
