'We won't accept insults from Trump' - Nana Addo

Durbin confirms Trump 's***hole' remark, says language was 'hate-filled, vile and racist' Tucker: Trump's 'S***hole' Comment Forcing a Conversation Our Leaders Don't Want to Have

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, said Trump 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.

Trump administration will allow states to test Medicaid work requirements
Those who don't comply would be suspended from receiving health care benefits until they meet their required hours for a month. Almost 8 in 10 are part of families where at least one person works, and 60 percent are working themselves.

However, Republican Sen. Tim Scott, the junior senator from SC, told the Charleston Post and Courier that Graham told him the reported comments are "basically accurate".

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. So, in light of what's happened, we're not here to simply condemn the statement.

So, if I'm talking to President Trump today, what we're asking - we're asking two things.

"It is disheartening because when I look at my parents that's not what I see, when I look at my parents I see hard workers who came here struggled, just to give us a better life", Jacques said.

The remarks drew a firestorm of criticism, including accusations that the president is a racist and speculation that this could stall talks on immigration reform.
