African countries unite at UN against Donald Trump slur, ask for apology

President Jovenel Moise's government issued a strongly worded statement. "Do we need more Haitians?'"

After lawmakers raised the issue of protections for immigrants from African nations, Haiti and El Salvador, the president reportedly demanded to know why the United States should accept immigrants from "shithole countries", rather than - for instance - wealthy and overwhelmingly white Norway.

The AU representative said they were alarmed by Trump's "very racist" comments. This remains a nation of immigrants whose strength is its diversity.

He said the bill was a step backwards because it would force the United States "to take large numbers of people from high crime countries which are doing badly".

Dick Durbin of IL confirmed Friday that President Donald Trump made vulgar comments when questioning why the US would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "s--hole countries" in Africa rather than places like Norway. Trump tweeted Friday morning: "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used. If he said it, he has to apologize, but if he did not say it, I think The Washington Post should apologize".

"Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?" he asked, according to multiple sources present at the White House meeting.

Al Jazeera's Kimberly Halkett, reporting from Washington, DC, said: "The calls for the president to apologise for his remarks are intensifying inside and outside the U.S., but for now, that apology does not appear likely".

Graham continued in his statement: 'The American people will ultimately judge us on the outcome we achieve, not the process which led to it'.

Senator Durbin, a member of the Democratic Party, was at the White House meeting on Thursday.

"I do appreciate their support and I'd like to continue their support and not be distracted by any false messages that can be propagated about Haitian people", he said. Sorry, but there is no other word one can use but "racist". And she called on Trump to apologize to the American people. The president said he has a wonderful relationship with Haitians and suggested future meetings probably should be recorded.

The two men said they "do not recall the President saying those comments specifically" but also didn't deny he said them. That's when he used these vile and vulgar comments, calling the nations they come from, 's***holes.' The exact word used by the president - not just once, but repeatedly.

But following angry backlash, Trump took to Twitter to deny the claims.

El Salvador, also facing an end to protected status for its 200,000 citizens living in the United States, sent a formal letter of protest to the USA government over the comments.

The lawmakers who were in that room are in a position to answer the question.
