Trump denies he used vulgarity about Africa

13 January 2018

"There is no other word one can use but 'racist, '" United Nations human rights spokesman Rupert Colville told a Geneva news briefing.

Trump took particular issue with the characterization of his comments on Haiti.

As president, Trump has not been to Africa on a state visit and his administration has not announced upcoming trips to the continent.

Jeffress says Trump has a constitutional responsibility as commander in chief to protect the U.S.

Earlier Thursday, Love said in a statement: "The president must apologize to both the American people and the nations he so wantonly maligned".

Jeffress sent out the statement as many evangelical leaders condemned the remarks as offensive and racist.

According to The Washington Post, several of those briefed on the meeting recalled Trump asking, "Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?" while discussing a bipartisan immigration deal.

Many have called for Mr Trump to apologise over his remarks which they say are racist.

"He said these hate-filled things and he said them repeatedly", Durbin said during a press conference at an MLK breakfast Friday. I could write about the beauty of the island, the music and vibrant art, the majesty of the mountains, the crystalline blue of the water surrounding her, the resilience of the Haitian people, our incredible work ethic, our faith.

"We have pity on (Trump) for his ignorance of what the Haitian people, the emancipated slaves, brought to humanity in terms of the experience and the determination to fight for freedom", said Gabriel Fortune, mayor of the southern city of Les Cayes.

If Trump can use his vile brand of "tough language" about entire nations of people, he should be willing to listen when somebody throws words like "racist" and "ignorant" right back at him, right? He did not specifically deny using the word "shithole".

"Trump denied saying anything derogatory about Haitians".

"If you tell me that we come from "s-thole" countries, when we come over here and open businesses and employ Americans", Maina said in frustration Friday.

Durbin added, "When the question was asked about Haitians ... he said, 'Hatians?"

"We have been working for four months and have reached an agreement in principle" that addresses the main policies Trump sought, they said.

Senator Durbin, a member of the Democratic Party, was at the White House meeting on Thursday. The people were not authorized to describe the conversation and spoke on condition of anonymity.

The US ambassador in Botswana was summoned on Friday by the government to hear complaints about Trump's reported remarks: "The Government of Botswana, today summoned the US Ambassador to Botswana to express its displeasure at the alleged utterances made by the President of the US", the country's foreign ministry said in a statement posted on Twitter. He also provided care for President Barack Obama and became a White House physician in 2006.

During the meeting, Trump questioned why the USA would accept more immigrants from Haiti and Africa rather than places like Norway. "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA".

In a meeting last fall, the president apparently said that a female intelligence expert should be assisting the U.S.in its negotiations with North Korea purely because of her Korean heritage, NBC News reported.

Botswana's foreign ministry summoned the USA ambassador in protest and called the comments "highly irresponsible, reprehensible and racist".

On the streets of Lusaka, capital of the southern African country of Zambia, Trump's reported remark reinforced long-held views about the USA leader.

In the Oval meeting, Trump went on to suggest that the country should be negotiating the entry of more immigrants from places like Norway whose prime minister he met with on Wednesday (Jan. 10). "I don't think it makes it impossible, but I suspect the Democrats are sitting there going, 'Why would we want to compromise with him on anything?'" We must help the children involved and ensure that the security of our fellow citizens is achieved. He said, "I will not be diverted from all possible efforts to continue negotiating to stop the deportations".
