Durbin: Trump said 'shithole' repeatedly, comments were 'vile, racist'

Trump has since denied that he made the remarks. Complaining about immigrants from "shithole countries" coming to the United States is bigoted and racist.

During a meeting of bipartisan senators at the White House on Thursday, Donald Trump reportedly called Haiti, El Salvador and African nations "s***hole countries".

"Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?"

Sen. Dick Durbin of IL, the only Democrat in the room, said Trump had indeed said what he was reported to have said. Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill).

Good morning from the greatest most handsome "shithole country" in the world!

Love said her office asked White House staff members if the reports were valid, but did not receive a response.

Earlier, the government of Botswana had announced that it had summoned the United States ambassador to explain Trump's comments, reportedly made on Thursday at a White House meeting on immigration.

Cécile Accilien, director of the Institute of Haitian Studies and associate professor of African & African-American studies at the University of Kansas, joined the chorus of condemnation and urged the president to learn some of the history that affects Haiti today. Others, who were involved in Trump's presidential campaign, including author Eric Metaxas and evangelist Franklin Graham, did not respond to requests for comment. People are shocked by what that rehydrated nutsack said. The news cycle moves so very quickly these days, it's hard to maintain an appropriate level of outrage over the disaster in the White House.

On Friday, Trump denied using the language, about Haiti, and tried to turn the conversation to Democrats. I've always believed that America is an idea, not defined by its people but by its ideals. Unlike Trump and his supporters, I do something.

When Ryan asked her in February if he planned to meet with the Congressional Black Caucus, he replied: "I'll tell you what, do you want to set up the meeting?" he said.

Speaking of vulgarities, readers will find language in the letters below that is normally not published in family newspapers. Bob Casey says the pattern dates back decades. And many people would never dream of talking about the glories of sexual assault with their locker-room buddies, even if they might use vulgar language or banter about sex.

Trump wrote on Twitter Friday morning. "I prefer elected officials to engage in language represents the commitment to the image of God", he said. Major American media figures have called the comments racist.

Unless it was specifically said about South Sudan, we have nothing to say, South Sudan government spokesman Ateny Wek Ateny told the AP. "Not every comment said it explicitly racist". "Our immigration should be merit-based plus compassion-based". I want to stop the massive inflow of drugs.

"I said to the president, do you realize how painful that term is to so many people?"

The sources said the president made the remark in a meeting as Sen.

In Kenya, East Africa's economic hub, political activist Boniface Mwangi pleaded: Please don't confuse the. leaders we Africans elect with our lovely continent.

Floyd said there's a hard balance between the primary responsibility of the government of securing the nation and the value of human life. He's also the person who was caught on tape boasting that "when you're a star", women let you "grab them by the pussy". "Regardless of their skin or ethnicity, we need to honor one another".

Earlier this week, the U.S. announced that it is rescinding Temporary Protected Status for around 200,000 Salvadorans in the United States that lets them live and work legally in the country. What Trump did do, they said, was "call out the imbalance in our current immigration system, which does not protect American workers and our national interest". "Each comment conveys more jingoistic flag-waving and the illusion of a common enemy, which contributes to some people instinctively and protectively guarding themselves and their sense of identity".

Some White House aides and outside advisers who have been working with Trump for the past two years have also become indifferent to the bumps along the way. "The church of Jesus Christ is led by, among others, our brothers and sisters from Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean. He speaks for our country on the worldwide stage", Farris wrote on Facebook. "They're rapists, and some, I assume, are good people".
