Haitian-Americans Push Back At Trump Expletive

Trump criticised immigration to his country from El Salvador, Haiti and the African continent, by calling the group "shithole countries" at a meeting with Congress members at the White House on Thursday, according to United States media.

African politicians and diplomats labelled US President Donald Trump a racist on Friday (local time) after he was reported to have described some immigrants from Africa and Haiti as coming from "s***hole" countries.

While many other reporters and journalists avoided using the term "racist" to classify Trump or his comments, Laventure clearly didn't have this hesitation when discussing the president's vulgar attack on people from developing countries.

Trump denied on Friday using such derogatory language, but he was widely condemned in many African countries and in Haiti and El Salvador, and by worldwide rights organisations.

Members of Central Florida's Haitian community on Friday criticized reports that President Donald Trump used a vulgar remark to describe the country on the eve of the anniversary of the 2010 quake, one of the deadliest disasters in modern history. Mahama's tweet used an altered image of an Oval Office meeting featuring Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to mock that mistake.

Meanwhile, former Canadian governor general Michaëlle Jean, who was born in Haiti also clapped back at Trump in a news press saying, "It was so disturbing this morning to hear President Trump's comments reported all over the news calling my poor native land and African countries "s-hole" nations".

Trump's alleged comments were met with condemnation from the United Nations. Trump said, according to Washington Post.

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". "(Extended silence.) I can't say that".

In an earlier tweet, Mahama said that Trump's comments showed he was "nothing but a racist".

"Sh**hole? Thought they said he was so impressed with us just last September?"

"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".

"I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians", he said on Twitter, adding that Democrats had made the accusations up. She said asking if Trump is racist is not enough, that people need to do something that will have an "economic impact". "Wall was not properly funded, Chain & Lottery were made worse and U.S. would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime. countries which are doing badly". "I want to see the tape".
