African countries demand Trump apology

13 January 2018

The Vatican newspaper on Friday branded US President Donald Trump's reported comments about African countries and Haiti as "particularly harsh and offensive".

Trump said he "never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country", and denied that he had asked to remove them from the immigration proposal, adding: "Made up by Dems".

In 2016, in response to a question about then-candidate Trump's views on immigration and his intention to build a wall along the USA border with Mexico, Francis said a man with such views was "not Christian".

Trump has since pushed back against the report saying the language he used during the meeting was "tough, but this was not the language used". Trump and Congress are trying to resolve it after Trump ended the program. The protection was extended to them after a 2001 natural disaster in the Central American nation.

El Salvador has also sent a formal letter of protest over Trump comments. For example, Haiti and Africa, they have had many problems.

Steven A. Camarota, director of research at the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), said the poverty rate for immigrants in the US from Central America is nearly twice what it is for Americans in general.

Immigrants have and will always be the wellspring of civic renewal - here in Louisiana, and across America. Fifty-seven percent of Central Americans are in or near poverty. In November, Secretary of Homeland Security Elaine Duke announced termination of the protections for Haitians, saying, "Significant steps have been taken to improve the stability and quality of life for Haitian citizens, and Haiti is able to safely receive traditional levels of returned citizens".

The Mission demanded a retraction of the statement and an apology from the US leader. Goodlatte's bill, introduced in the House Wednesday, also would lower overall immigration levels by 25%.

But his political rise was fueled in part by the inaccurate claim that Barack Obama, the nation's first black president, wasn't born in the United States.

"Given the historical reality of how African Americans arrived in the United States as slaves, and the United States being the biggest example of how a nation has been built by migration - for a statement like that to come is particularly upsetting", said Ebba Kalondo, spokeswoman for AU chief Moussa Faki.

"Why don't I believe him?" "Neither Haiti nor Africa were mentioned". They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. I reject them and condemn them vigorously.

Doron said he doubts that Trump will ever face up to his words. The Trump team has become used to such controversies.

Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury: Inside Donald Trump's White House" said the president prefers to be in bed by 6:30 p.m. with a cheeseburger in hand.

"For years, people in Washington asked, 'What's fair to the illegal immigrant?'" Conway said. "He's not a good president of America". He added that Trump supports immigration policies that welcome "those who can contribute to our society".

"Indecorous choice of words, but true ones", tweeted Emilio Rubi Villa, who fled the Sandinista regime in Nicaragua in the 1980s. "Then the influencer said you also need to call the telephone company, tie up the lines and call the telephone company talking about 'I need to have my worldwide phone plan include S-hole'".
