Trump Must Apologize for 'Shithole' Remark, African Countries Say

Trump Must Apologize for 'Shithole' Remark, African Countries Say

Trump has faced intense backlash for calling Haiti, El Salvador and African nations "shithole countries" during an Oval Office meeting on immigration this week.

Former governor general Michaëlle Jean was among those Canadians who sharply criticized U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday for reportedly using vulgar language to describe Haiti and countries in Africa.

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.

Despite Trump's denial, one of the sponsors of the DACA deal who was present at the meeting, Senator Dick Durbin (D-Illinois), insisted the U.S. president indeed referred to the countries in question as "s***holes" multiple times during the gathering.

This is a developing story. At that same meeting, he also complained that Nigerian immigrants who come to the United States would never want to "go back to their huts". Trump allegedly said after being presented with a proposal to restore protections for immigrants from the countries in question.

And since we're also talking about immigration as well, we're hoping the president would take time to meet some of the TPS recipients, to see exactly how much contribution as a community we continue to provide here in this country.

"Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?"

Farris Jr. said that the comments were "another example of him (Trump) speaking without knowing the facts".

According to the Washington-based news website, AU said that Trump's remarks "dishonour the celebrated American creed and respect for diversity and human dignity". "We will not accept such insults, even from a leader of a friendly country, no matter how powerful", the President said in a tweet. On Friday he denied using that language.

Durbin, the No. 2 Democrat in the Senate, called the White House to tell Trump that a bipartisan group of senators had struck a deal to put Dreamers on a path to citizenship, beef up border security and take other steps to change immigration laws. Democratic senator Dick Durbin also condemned Mr Trump's language during the meeting as "hate-filled, vile and racist".

On Friday, the African Union mission, which represents more than 50 member states in the continent, expressed its "shock, dismay and outrage" over the alleged comments.

Among other objections, Mr Trump said the plan did not provide proper funding for the proposed wall that he made a centre-piece of his election campaign.
