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

Withdraw and Apologize 54 African Countries Ask US President Trump Over 'Shithole' Slur

Trump has denied reports that he referred to some immigrants as coming from "shithole countries" during a heated Oval Office meeting on Thursday.

Durbin continued, "When we started to describe the immigration from Africa that was being protected in this bi-partisan major, that's when he used his vile and vulgar comments, calling the nations they come from "s***holes".

US President Donald Trump on Friday (Jan 12) implied that he did not describe African nations and Haiti as "shithole countries" during a meeting with legislators over immigration. Trump tweeted Friday morning: "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used". Durbin added, "When the question was asked about Haitians. he said, "Haitians?"

Congressional Black Caucus leader Cedric Richmond said that Trump's comments are "proof" that his Make America Great Again slogan really means "Make America White Again".

"Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country".

A White House official said Trump also suggested he would be open to more immigrants from Asian countries because he felt that they help the United States economically. Made up by Dems. When I mentioned that fact to him, he said, 'Haitians? "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!" he said.

The US President has provoked fresh controversy after allegedly asking a group of senators why the US had to allow in immigrants from "s***hole countries" in Africa and the Caribbean rather than from places like Norway.

Former Swedish Prime Minister Carl Bildt had earlier tweeted that, judging by Solberg's visit, "keys to success with Trump are personal charm, a solid trade deficit with the U.S. and buying tons of United States military hardware".

Ryan has clashed with the Trump administration before - in May, then-White House press secretary Sean Spicer scolded her, "please stop shaking your head", as he answered one of her questions.

The union also demanded that Trump formally retract the statement and deliver "an apology not only to the Africans but to all people of African descent around the globe". Lindsey Graham broke his public silence. He has said Mexican immigrants were "bringing crime" and were "rapists". He also blamed "both sides" after a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, turned violent.

Richmond said in a statement: "President Trump's comments are yet another confirmation of his racially insensitive and ignorant views". But it wasn't just Democrats objecting.

Colville also expressed concern for previous remarks by Trump that had what he called racial undertones, including campaign events in which the then-candidate had called Mexican immigrants criminals and rapists, and Trump's response past year to a white supremacist march saying that "both sides" deserved blame.

Uganda's state minister for worldwide relations, Henry Okello Oryem, called Trump's remarks "unfortunate and regrettable".
