Trump in 'excellent health,' White House doctor says after exam

13 January 2018

According sources in the Oval Office meeting between Trump and lawmakers, the President referred to Africa, saying, "why do we want all these people from "shithole countries" coming here?"

When Trump said he wanted fewer immigrants coming to the USA from Haiti, El Salvador or the entire continent of Africa, and more from places like Norway, he was saying exactly that and nothing more, his supporters argue.

"My colleague, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of SC spoke up and made a direct comment on what the president said. Get smart, MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!"

"As individual Christians, we have a biblical responsibility to place the needs of others above our own, but as Commander-in-Chief, President Trump has the constitutional responsibility to place the interest of our nation above the needs of other countries".

"It's a shame that the president of the United States would refer to African countries including Haiti being in an "a-hole", Jacquet said.

That “move the needle” argument - that Trumps base would stand by him - was also put forward by other Trump sympathizers in the immediate aftermath of the initial reports of Trumps comments.

Among those condemning the comments were Hatian-American Republican Rep. Mia Love of Utah, who called the reported comments "unkind, divisive [and] elitist" and demanded that Trump apologize to Americans and nations he so 'wantonly maligned'.

One Twitter user made a meme featuring Ann Coulter holding a sign saying "I'm a miserable person who peddles hate to make money off of dumb republicans".

He stressed the USA was "much stronger than the sum total of one man".

Others shared pictures of their lovely continent, saying that it wasn't the "shithole" Mr Trump reportedly said it was.

Most presidents, though, dont always tell Americans what they want to hear (even if they often do), and thats particularly the case with comments that stoke racial tension - or are openly racist.

Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin, who was in the meeting, disputed the president account.

Trump has denied making the remark (kind of), but it certainly fits right in with his history.

African politicians and diplomats have been put in an awkward position by Mr Trump's remarks, with some hesitating to jeopardise their relationships with the U.S. as others came out and labelled him a racist. "We have consistently been portrayed as shitty people from shitty countries".

In November, the Trump administration rescinded deportation protection granted to almost 60,000 Haitians after the 2010 natural disaster and told them to return home by July 2019.

"The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used", Trump insisted in a series of Friday morning tweets, pushing back on some depictions of the meeting.

“But you know what?” Watters went on to say.

Durbin said, "We have seven days and the clock is ticking".

In South Africa, the ruling party declared "ours is not a shithole country" and described Mr Trump as "extremely offensive".

It can be hard to extract concrete policy proposals out of the president's off-the-cuff remarks, so we'll leave that task to his loyal translators.

There is not much more to say than what the president said himself.

Haiti's Ambassador to the US, has also formally summoned an American official to explain the president's comments and said the government "vehemently" condemned them, NBC News contributor Yamiche Alcindor. Typically they've been better qualified to lead a nation, too. She later thanked the handful of nations that voted with the United States and the larger group that abstained.

Asked about the post in the White House daily briefing, press secretary Jay Carney said he checked with a participant of the meeting in question.
