Trump Denies Using Vulgar Slur; Top Democrat Says He Said It

Botswana issued a strong rebuke to President Donald Trump's reported comments about Haiti, El Salvador, and African countries being "shithole countries".

Some in the worldwide community questioned Trump's view of different races after he reportedly made controversial comments about Haiti and African nations.

"I said to [Trump] that that term, 'chain migration, ' was so hurtful to so many people, particularly to African-Americans, who remind us that they migrated to America in chains".

Martin Luther King, Jr., dedicated his life to a vision: "that all Americans would live free from injustice and enjoy equal opportunity as children of God", Trump said in scripted comments at the White House. Day, according to The Daily Beast.

Durbin said Graham immediately objected to the president's comments. That's when he used these vile and vulgar comments, calling the nations they come from 'sh-holes.' The exact word used by the president. "It is not true".

Trump blasted the proposal as "a big step backwards" and said it didn't provide enough funding for a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border, a key campaign promise Trump made in 2016.

Durbin added, "When the question was asked about Haitians. he said, 'Haitians?"

Trump also denied saying "anything derogatory" about Haitians. Instead, the United States should seek immigration from Norway, he reportedly said. Durbin said people who would be allowed to stay in the USA included those who had fled here after disasters hit their homes in places such as El Salvador, Guatemala and Haiti. "Probably", the president concluded this morning, citing to a lack of trust on all sides, we "should record future meetings" of this type. Do we need more Haitians?' Then he went on and started to describe the immigration from Africa that was being protected in this bipartisan measure.

Graham's statement did not detail what Trump said or what Graham told the president in response.

The president said at the White House that "love was central" to the slain civil rights leader. He was widely criticized by people who said his question presumed a monolithic relationship between all African-Americans. I want a merit based system of immigration and people who will help take our country to the next level.

Trump mentioned Norway in derogatory comments about other countries of migration as USA senators briefed him on Thursday on a newly drafted bipartisan immigration bill, according to two sources who asked not to be identified. "I want to stop the massive inflow of drugs", he tweeted. But, as reporters in the Netherlands demonstrated this week, asking politicians who make offensive statements to account for their remarks can be a public service, by at least attaching some sort of social embarrassment to making such comments.
