US Senator- "Trump is Lying" about Denying "S…hole" Country Remark

Share
US Senator-

But Mr Trump has denied using the language reported.

Trump is claimed to have questioned why the USA was would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "sh**hole" countries.

The African Union said it was "alarmed" by Trump's statement. "Made up by Dems", Trump wrote. Republican Rep. Mia Love of Utah, the daughter of Haitian immigrants, said Trump's comments were "unkind, divisive, elitist and fly in the face of our nation's values". "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!" he said.

Amid the furore the president criticised an immigration proposal to protect 700,000 children who were brought to the United States as illegal immigrants and later given protection from deportation under a program known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA.

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

"He didn't just name a white country, he named the whitest - so white they wear moon-screen", he said.

"As an American, I am ashamed of the president", said Democrat Representative Luis Gutierrez. Furthermore, the IL lawmaker labeled the president's words "hate-filled" and "racist". I thought about my own family. I would not talk about nations like this because the people of those countries are made in the image of God and have worth and human dignity. "The president and all those attending the meeting know what I said and how I feel", he said.

Reports that U.S. President Donald Trump used a vulgar term to describe Haiti and African nations have been confirmed by Illinois Senator Dick Durbin, who was in an Oval Office meeting Thursday when the President called them "s-hole countries".

On social media, users across the continent on Friday posted images of modern skylines and attractive nature from their countries with the ironic hashtag "shithole". "Because of this we have directed a note of protest to the government of the United States", the ministry said in a statement, also demanding respect for its people.

Motorcycle taxi driver Jean-Paul Maxon said he was angry that the president seemed to be unaware of Haiti's proud history as the first independent country founded by freed slaves. "Do we need more Haitians?" Some people can say that.

In November, the Trump administration rescinded deportation protection granted to almost 60,000 Haitians after the 2010 quake and told them to return home by July 2019.

"I can not believe that in the history of the White House, in that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday", Durbin told reporters Friday, after Trump tweeted a denial of sorts.

Immigration is one of the issues that Pope Francis, who has strongly defended the rights of developing countries, and Trump have clashed over. But instead of winning Trump's support, as they had expected, the president launched into a broadside against immigration from Haiti and Africa.

Trump on Friday panned the "so-called bipartisan DACA deal" as "a big step backwards". "We are now working to build support for that deal in Congress".

"As someone from South Shithole, Trevor is deeply offended by the president's remarks", USA television programme The Daily Show wrote on Twitter, referring to its South Africa-born host Trevor Noah. "That's not how a president behaves".

Most of all, it's not what a president should believe.

"We're better than this", he added.

The Washington Post reported the comments Thursday.
