Trump's most recent slur confirms he is a racist

Trump's most recent slur confirms he is a racist

Former President Bill Clinton responded Friday to President Trump's reported comments questioning why the US was accepting immigrants from "s--hole" countries, allegedly made in reference to Haiti and some countries in Africa and Central America.

The president reportedly questioned why the United States would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa rather than nations like Norway.

Trump denied in a pair of tweets on Friday that he made the comment, but referred to Haiti as a "very poor and troubled country".

Durbin also ripped Trump's comments Friday, saying that he "repeatedly" used "hate-filled, vile and racist" language about immigrants from those countries.

US President Donald Trump sparked global furore after reportedly using the phrase "shithole countries" to describe Haiti and African countries this week.

Mr Durbin said: "The President started tweeting this morning, denying that he used those words. Do we need more Haitians?" "It is more about ethnicity than shared values", said Hilde Restad, an associate professor in global affairs and a former U.S. resident.

Israel PM Benjamin Netanyahu set to arrive in India today
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara Netanyahu landed in New Delhi India on Sunday morning [IL time]. Daniel Carmon, the Israeli ambassador to India, said that the Israeli-India ties would withstand any troubles.

What exactly did Trump say?

"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".

According to the Washington-based news website, AU said that Trump's remarks "dishonour the celebrated American creed and respect for diversity and human dignity". Instead, she said, the country has been subjected to Trump's ire.

We certainly agree, and we're sure that the millions of people President Trump insulted with his comments do, too.

"Many people have been surprised from what they heard from Trump, but not me", said Syverain, a member of the Haitian American Community Church in San Jose. Never said "take them out". "I think it fundamentally poisons the relationship with numerous countries", Peter Lewis, director of African Studies at Johns Hopkins University, told CNN. "Probably should record future meetings-unfortunately, no trust!"

At the White House meeting Durbin and Republican Senator Lindsey Graham briefed the president on the newly drafted, bipartisan immigration bill. Former VP Joe Biden also had choice words about Trump's language, tweeting, "It's not what a president should believe".
