Cuba condemns Trump's "racist" statements on Haiti, El Salvador

Durbin: Trump said 'shithole' repeatedly, comments were 'vile, racist'

This is according to the person who examined him, presidential physician Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., left, and Rep. Steny Hoyer, D-Md. listen as President Donald Trump speaks during a meeting with lawmakers on immigration policy in the Cabinet Room of the White House in Washington.

Maryland lawmakers were quick to denounce the president's comments on Twitter. Sen. Durbin called the moment, "heartbreaking". Trump was not scheduled to take a psychiatric exam, according to the Chicago Tribune, and cognitive screenings that test memory and other elementary brain functions are not part of a routine physical checkup.

But following angry backlash, Trump took to Twitter to deny the claims.

The Government of Botswana is wondering why President Trump, must use this descriptor and derogatory word, when talking about countries with whom the U.S. has had cordial and mutually beneficial bilateral relations for so many years. "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!".

The Senate group has been working for months to craft legislation that would protect 700,000 children who were brought to the United States as illegal immigrants and later given protection from deportation under a programme known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA. Trump and Congress are trying to resolve it after Trump ended the program.

But he added that the words attributed to him were "not the language used". "I've never seen a statement like this by African countries directed at the United States".

Singapore Airlines says options open on AI disinvestment
Foreign investments in Air India , including that of overseas airlines, should not exceed 49 per cent either directly or indirectly.

The Trump administration has spoken little about how it wants to engage with African countries, focusing its foreign policy instead on issues like North Korea and Islamic State. Using them, he said, implies that Latin American people are "worth nothing". "Made up by Dems", Trump wrote. "I think it fundamentally poisons the relationship with numerous countries". "We got to look at each other as human beings, not about color", Diallo said. "They are giving more precedent to these illegal criminals".

United Nations human rights spokesman Rupert Colville told reporters in Geneva that Trump's comments were "shocking and shameful". Trump is "very aware" you can't fix this problem without the Democrats, Graham added. Plus, the White House has yet to officially deny the reports in a statement - and Hillary Clinton has plenty to say about it. Bob Goodlatte of Virginia, had been pushing for stronger immigration enforcement and a less generous package for the Dreamers.

Education levels for immigrants from troubled nations also rarely improve, Camarota noted.

Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., suggested the president's inability to refrain from incendiary statements was detracting from his agenda.

The two-time Academy Award-winning actor and founder of the J/P Haitian Relief Organization was measured in his response, but referred to Trump as "an enemy of compassion", and "an enemy of the state". More than 50,000 Haitian TPS recipients live in South Florida, which is home to the largest concentration of Haitians in the nation.
