African Union: Trump 's***hole' remarks dishonor 'American creed'

Africans 'alarmed' by Trump's comments about their continent

Trump on Friday denied using the vulgarity, but world leaders and members of his own party, along with Democrats, denounced his terminology.

The racially charged remarks now threaten what had been an emerging agreement to protect immigrants brought illegally to the United States as children.

"Haitians don't deserve such treatment", said Paul Altidor, the Haitian ambassador. The White House has not disputed the account of the exchange.

But Trump rejected the deal, plunging the issue back into uncertainty just eight days before a deadline that threatens a government shutdown.

Trump has however on Friday denied that he used the vulgar expression, saying "this was not the language used".

Tweeted Republican Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona: "The words used by the president, as related to me directly following the meeting by those in attendance, were not 'tough, ' they were abhorrent and repulsive". Tom Cotton of Arkansas and David Perdue of Georgia, said they "do not recall" Trump's derogatory comments about Africa. "The obvious truth can no longer be avoided or sugarcoated: we have a racist in the Oval Office". The American Heart Association has said the best types of exercise increase the heart rate and make a person breathe heavily, but that activities like golf don't provide as much cardiovascular benefit since they don't require much extra effort. The statement was confirmed by Fox News. Lindsay Graham, suggested the reported remarks were accurate: "Following comments by the president, I said my piece directly to him". "I've always believed that America is an idea, not defined by its people but by its ideals".

Since the start of the twentieth century, at least 14 of the 20 presidents before Trump suffered from a significant health problem while in office, the full extents of which were kept secret in some cases, according to an analysis by Aaron Seth Kesselheim, an associate professor at Harvard Medical School.

On Thursday, Trump was meeting lawmakers to discuss a proposal for an immigration plan when he reportedly grew agitated as the conversation turned to citizens of Haiti and El Salvador, and immigrants from the African continent.

Durbin said Friday that he had hoped for White House approval of the bipartisan deal. "In regards to Sen".

"Following comments by the President, I said my piece directly to him yesterday". Bob Goodlatte, R-Va. and Mario Diaz-Balart R-Fla.

On Friday, several black supporters and advisers to Trump vouched for his commitment to the black community after a White House event honoring Martin Luther King Jr. "Folks, the United States would not be almost as successful today had we not embraced the ingenuity, passion, and tenacity of immigrants searching for a better life for themselves and their families". You get what I'm saying?

Brian Kilmeade, co-host of Trump's favorite morning show, "Fox & Friends", said that "the president made a mistake in making those comments, no question".

Ghana's President Nana Akufo-Addo called Trump's remark "extremely unfortunate" and said that "we will not accept such insults, even from a leader of a friendly country, no matter how powerful".

The group called the remarks "outrageous, racist and xenophobic" while thanking those Americans who had condemned the remarks. "There is no excuse for it".

"The president will always reject temporary, weak and unsafe stopgap measures that threaten the lives of hardworking Americans, and undercut immigrants who seek a better life in the United States through a legal pathway".
