Donald Trump should apologize for remarks: African states

Trump, in a Thursday meeting on immigration, reportedly referred to El Salvador, Haiti, and a handful of African nations as "shithole countries." .

"Durbin's accusation, we do not recall the president saying these comments specifically, but what he did call out was the imbalance in our current immigration system, which does not protect American workers and our national interest". There came a global shock with this crude remark that has ever imagined in a semi-public meeting by the president of America.

"We aren't going to respond to unverified, leaked remarks from a private conversation", a Duncan spokeswoman told the Index-Journal on Friday.

Instead, Trump had also invited some of Congress' hard-line opponents of the bipartisan agreement being put together by the six-member working group led by Durbin and Graham.

"Trump has always been a racist, only a racist can use such foul language", said Nancy Mulenga, a student at the University of Zambia.

"Sir, they're not shithole countries".

Tweeted Republican Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona: "The words used by the president, as related to me directly following the meeting by those in attendance, were not 'tough, ' they were abhorrent and repulsive". 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.

Meanwhile, Mr Trump is in excellent health after undergoing his first medical check-up as president, according to his doctor.

"I spoke with President Jovenel Moise about the issue, and, of course, the president condemns such language and he is shocked", Altidor remarked, adding that the USA charge d'affaires in Haiti had been summoned to explain the United States president's remarks.

The group, which represents the 55 countries on the African continent, said that Trump's remarks "dishonor the celebrated American creed and respect for diversity and human dignity", and that the administration has a "huge misunderstanding" of the continent.

Haitians on the island and across the United States, where more than 600,000 Haitians live, offered prayers at ceremonies for those who were killed by the 7.0 magnitude quake that struck on January 12, 2010.

The US leader made the alleged remark in a Thursday meeting on immigration.

Two months before the November 2016 presidential election, Trump released a five-paragraph letter from his longtime physician, Dr. Harold Bornstein, who concluded that Trump "is in excellent physical health".

"If that's not racism, I don't know how you can define it", Florida GOP Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen told WPLG-TV in Miami.

We expect President Trump to speak strongly and passionately on the Key issue of immigration, and the Democrats to try to derail his momentum to a resolution of the issue.

His comments drew a chorus of condemnation inside the United States and internationally, especially in Africa. In 2017, the Nordic country was named the happiest nation on the planet and has a welfare state funded in part by large reserves of oil and natural gas. In the 1970s, the federal government twice sued Trump's real estate company for favoring white tenants over blacks.
