Trump's remark causes concern immigration deal out of reach

Trump's remark causes concern immigration deal out of reach

Trump, who opened his presidential campaign in 2015 by calling some Mexican immigrants "rapists" and "criminals", reportedly made the remark during a meeting concerning a deal that would allow for increased security along the U.S. -Mexico border, while also allowing for the continuation of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

United State's President Donald Trump is not new to controversies, but his "shithole" remarks against African countries seem to have ruffled many feathers across the region as leaders come out to condemn and demand for apology. But Sen. Richard J. Durbin, a Democrat from IL who attended the meeting, said publicly Friday that Trump's apparent denial was false and that he repeatedly used the phrase.

Durbin is the only person in the meeting who has spoken at length about what transpired in the Oval Office. He also reportedly suggested that the USA should bring in more people from countries like Norway.

He acknowledged using some "tough language but denied saying "anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country".

"For the first representative of the United States of America to speak in such a manner is quite troubling and offensive", Jean said in the statement. Never said "take them out".

Spokespeople for the White House did not immediately respond to a request for clarification Friday.

"If you look at all we have in Africa, South Africa is one of the developed countries".

It said the current United States embassy in Grosvenor Square, central London, had "aged beyond its ability to be improved to current security and life safety standards without extensive investment in infrastructure that would require appropriated dollars". 'The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used, ' he said.

"He said, 'Haitians? Do we need more Haitians?' And then he went on and started to describe the immigration from Africa that was being protected in this bipartisan measure", Sen.

The fallout continues after President Donald Trump allegedly made an expletive reference to Haiti and African countries. His famous "Islam hates us" needs no commentary- yes the religion of over 1.6 billion people came in the line of his fire.

"I can not believe that in the history of the White House and of that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday. I cried", Farah Larrieux said.

The UN diplomats met for an emergency session before issuing a joint statement to demand a "retraction and an apology" from the USA president. Trump said, according to these people, referring to countries mentioned by the senators. Her parents immigrated to the States when they were only children.
