Tucker: Trump's 'S***hole' Comment Forcing a Conversation Our Leaders Don't Want to Have
14 January, 2018, 06:59
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 USA would accept more immigrants from Haiti and nations in Africa, rather than places like Norway.
But despite his public denial, Senator Dick Durbin, a Democrat, saidTrump did indeed describe African nations as a "shithole", which Durbin said was "vile, hate-filled and clearly racial in their content".
Rupert Coleville, spokesperson for the UN high commissioner for human rights, said: "If confirmed these are shocking and shameful comments from the President of the United States".
In his own tweet posted on Friday, Trump had appeared to deny using the term "shithole" during a private White House meeting Thursday. Sen. Republican Senator Lindsay Graham of SC, also present at the gathering, said he confronted the president over his racy comments.
The language came after lawmakers discussed restoring protections for immigrants living in Haiti and Africa than from places like Norway. Mahama tweeted under a mocked-up photograph of Trump being shown a map of Africa in which all the countries were labelled "Nambia". Mahama's tweet used an altered image of an Oval Office meeting featuring Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to mock that mistake.

The Pacers had a better turnover percentage (7.7 vs. 10.4) and had a much better offensive rebounding percentage (25.5 vs. 19.6). Trying to pinpoint an issue, James noted after this loss that the Cavaliers don't have enough energy in the fourth quarter.
Meanwhile, Markram reached his second Test half-century off 81 balls, just before the break. "Massively disappointed", he said. Wriddhiman Saha was ruled out of the match due to hamstring injury, Parthiv Patel was picked to replace him.
Occasionally, though, the Russian Federation narrative appears ready to die down, but then Trump raises the issue again himself. She added that Norwegians generally didn't want "to be flattered by this USA president in this way". "It's all fake news".
However, Kevin Pietersen had other plans and chose to put up a fight against the formidable Australian bowling attack. The five-match ODI series between Australia and England gets underway on January 14 in Melbourne.
