Trump's immigration remarks lambasted from left and right

All 54 African ambassadors to the United Nations decried Donald Trump's reported remarks as "outrageous, racist, and xenophobic" on Friday, a day after U.S. media reported that Trump had referred to African states, Haiti, and El Salvador as "s***hole countries".

The White House, in an initial statement, didn't deny the remarks, which remained unchallenged by the Trump administration until a pair of tweets from the President. Senator Dick Durbin said Friday he witnessed what happened at a meeting with the president regarding a bipartisan compromise on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and confirmed the president used that language repeatedly.

I am shocked by the words of President Trump on Haiti and Africa.

The president said at the White House that "love was central" to the slain civil rights leader.

"It is disheartening because when I look at my parents that's not what I see, when I look at my parents I see hard workers who came here struggled, just to give us a better life", Jacques said.

"People have come to this country from everywhere, and people from everywhere have made America great", McCain said in a statement. Republican Senator Lindsay Graham of SC, also present at the gathering, said he confronted the president over his racy comments.
