Local leaders weigh in on Trump calling Haiti, Africa 's***hole countries'

US President Donald Trump shakes hands after signing a proclamation during an event about Martin Luther King Jr. in the Roosevelt Room of the White House

"Why are we having all these people from sh*thole countries come here?" Trump told senators in the Oval Office, a source briefed on the meeting told CNN.

As a result of the disaster, citizens of Haiti were accorded TPS, granted to individuals from countries where conditions such as war, natural disasters or political strife prevent citizens from returning safely.

The remarks show that Trump, with nearly a year of presidential experience under his belt, is not much different than candidate Trump, who said in a speech announcing his candidacy, "When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best". The Washington Post first reported on Trump's comments.

The comments from Cooper and Trump came one day before the eighth anniversary of the devastating quake that left over 100,000 people dead. It was just yesterday that he was getting along swimmingly with Norwegian PM Erna Solberg, in part because he seemed to miss her chirp about green energy and electric vehicle development.

"If confirmed these are shocking and shameful comments from the President of the United States", spokesperson Rupert Coleville said.

The president has been accused of questioning why the United States should accept more immigrants from Haiti and "s***hole countries" in Africa, during a meeting on immigration. Well, the Trumpster sure does love to give people nicknames and now celebrities have given him one, naming him "President S***hole" in their tweets about the vile comment.

"The so-called bipartisan DACA deal presented yesterday to myself and a group of Republican Senators and Congressmen was a big step backwards".

Earlier this week, the Trump administration announced its decision to end temporary protected status for people from El Salvador, apparently another country in Trump's shithole category. Tom Cotton (R., Ark.) and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R., Va.).

Trump was taping a message in the State Dining Room on Thursday afternoon for Martin Luther King Jr.

In South Sudan, government spokesman Ateny Wek Ateny says that "unless it was specifically said about South Sudan, we have nothing to say". "They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people". The bipartisan deal they proposed included cutting the visa lottery program by 50 percent, prioritizing countries now in the system, restoring protections for countries that had been removed and allocating $1.5 billion for a border wall. "Do we need more Hatians?'" Trump preferred immigrants from Norway.

This latest lament is in keeping with one of the most consistent aspects of Trump's campaign slogan, Make America Great Again, a call to return the country to its past. We have been working for four months and have reached an agreement in principle that addresses border security, the diversity visa lottery, chain migration/family reunification, and the Dream Act--the areas outlined by the President. They included senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Dick Durbin (D-IL), who thought they were meeting with the president alone but were surprised that immigration hardliners Rep.
