Trump Doesn't Want Immigrants From 'Shithole' Countries

The group of over 50 nations in a statement said: "the AU expressed its disappointment and outrage over the unfortunate comment made by Mr Donald Trump, President of the United States of America".

The U.S. leader has been under fire at home and overseas after he reportedly referred to Haiti and African nations as "shithole countries" during a meeting on an immigration deal with a group of bipartisan lawmakers at the White House on Thursday.

While the White House did not deny the controversial remarks, Trump tweeted on Friday that he never said "anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country".

Robert Jackson, the current US ambassador to Ghana, told Ghanaian reporters a year ago that the election of Trump would not change the relationship between the United States and African nations.

This is not the first time that Donald Trump has uttered such unpalatable words. Calls racist language heartbreaking. "I'm Don Lemon. The president of the United States is racist", Lemon memorably stated blankly.

"I don't think it makes it impossible, but I suspect the Democrats are sitting there going: 'Why would we want to compromise with him on anything?'"

But nearly immediately a senator who attended the meeting at which Mr Trump was alleged to have used the description said it was "the exact word used by the president - not just once but repeatedly".

The UN has also branded as racist, the reported remark branding Haiti, El Salvador and unspecified African nations as "shithole countries". He pointed to Trump's 2015 comments on Mexican immigrants, who Trump said are "rapists" and bringing drugs and crimes to the U.S.

In a series of tweets yesterday, Mr Trump also suggested that momentum towards a deal on maintaining such protection had stalled. The details of the proposal have not been publicised, but the President said: "The so-called bipartisan DACA deal. was a big step backwards".

The president implied Friday morning on Twitter that maybe he should start recording meetings because there is no trust. "Sorry, but there is no other word one can use but ´racist´", Rupert Colville, spokesman for the United Nations human rights office, told reporters in Geneva.

"My husband got a job here", she said.

In a tweet, Clinton denounced Trump's remarks, which were made in a private meeting with lawmakers on Thursday, saying that Friday should be a day of remembrance for the 2010 quake in Haiti.

Akufo-Addo's predecessor, John Dramani Mahama, also criticized Trump's comments Saturday. But instead of winningTrump's support, as they had expected, the president launched into a broadside against immigration from Haiti and Africa.

Baraldsnes found a U.S. citizen living in Norway and asked why she made the move, in the opposite direction.
