No One Is Coming to Save Us From Trump's Racism

Trump made the remarks Thursday during a meeting with lawmakers in the Oval Office who discussed protecting immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries as part of a bipartisan deal on the status of undocumented young USA immigrants, The Washington Post reported. Using vulgar language, Trump on Thursday questioned why the USA would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa rather than places like Norway in rejecting a bipartisan immigration deal.

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.

President Donald Trump's use of a vulgar term to describe African countries triggered widespread condemnation, and left the small cluster of immigration hard-line groups whose agenda Trump has embraced scrambling to distance themselves from the president. "There is a serious need for dialogue between the U.S. administration and the African countries", said the AU statement.

Officials had said it would take a few days for test results to be completed. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians.

His press office characterized his statement as being about "DACA" rather than about Trump, indicating Graham's desire not to fan the flames more than necessary.

His comments which also suggested the U.S. should instead focus its immigrant entry policy on countries such as Norway has been criticised by worldwide organisations including the United Nations and African Union, politicians and other Africans and Caribbeans. They said, prior to the physical, that mental health testing was not something Trump would undergo. "But I can not believe that in the history of the White House, in that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken words that I personally heard our President speak yesterday".

Botswana also said it had summoned the USA ambassador to that country to "express its displeasure" and had asked him whether Botswana "is regarded as a "shithole" country".

"For months, I have been involved in numerous high level bipartisan meetings negotiating DACA (Deferred Action for Child Arrivals), including Thursday's meeting at the White House".

Suspect arrested in slaying of Penn student in California
It was unclear how well Woodward and Bernstein knew each other in high school, or the nature of their relationship, Barnes said. Video from a pair of local television stations showed the suspect being led into the Orange County jail in handcuffs.

The United Nations' human rights spokesman Rupert Colville told reporters in Geneva that Trump's comments were "shocking and shameful".

The top 10% of earners in the United States now make 50% of all pre-tax income and own 75% of total household wealth, according to a number of economists and a recent report from Deutsche Bank. "It is about opening the door to humanity's worst side".

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham and Durbin had come to the White House to outline their bipartisan compromise, but found themselves in the room with several Republican immigration hardliners.

The president and lawmakers are in the midst of intense negotiations about how to shield almost 800,000 "Dreamers" from deportation. The choice is yours: denounce President Trump and work on legislation that reflects the values of our country, like the Dream Act, or go down as enablers of a racist regime.

Their future, he insisted, "should not be used as a bargaining chip to negotiate the most severe and restrictive immigration and security measures possible".

"The Haitian people deserve better", the then-candidate said.

Trump's alleged comments came one day before the eighth anniversary of the natural disaster.

Even though Trump has denied making the particular comment, members of Congress who attended the meeting say that the reports are true.
