From Norway to Haiti, Trump's comments stir outrage

Trevor Noah, Kimmel, and Colbert blast Trump's 'shithole' comments: 'I don't know how to break this to you, but I think the president might be racist'

The president's reference to African "sh**hole" countries and reported resistance to more immigration from Haiti felt like a tipping point in the number of people willing to call HIM a racist, rather than say his words or actions exhibited racism.

How much of Trump's health information is released to the public is up to the president, but Sanders said she expects the White House to release the same kind of details past presidents have made public.

The doctor who oversaw 71-year-old President Trump's first formal physical Friday said the commander-in-chief is in "excellent health".

To wit: Trump has claimed he objects to the lottery program because it admits terrorists, but he still objects to the deal reached on it because it still allows people (those with TPS) from the wrong countries, the "shithole" countries, to remain.

"I think it was stupid and irresponsible and childish", said Rep. Mike Simpson, R-Idaho.

"Mr. President, are you a racist?" "Oh, I feel bad", said Barhanyu Brhe who immigrated to Raleigh from Ethiopia in 2010 and now manages Abyssinia Ethiopian Restaurant near NC State. In August, after the president said "both sides" were to blame in clashes between white supremacists and counterprotesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, many GOP officials condemned Trump's remarks but maintained their overall support for his presidency.

"Listen, I'm sure the fact that the counties he described as "shitholes" are mostly populated by people of color and the immigrants he wants from Norway are not is a coincidence", Kimmel said.

Many Africans reminded the USA of its historic role in the continent's woes. However he later tweeted: "this was not the language used".

El Salvador, also facing an end to protected status for its 200,000 citizens living in the United States, sent a formal letter of protest to the U.S. government over the comments.

Trump's derogatory remarks cited by the Washington Post and New York Times were in reference to African countries and Haiti.

Ghana's president Nana Akufo-Addo called Mr 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". How many examples do you need of this?

Some Nigerians did not hold back, with many on Twitter saying their country was a "shithole", but that it was "our shithole" to criticise.

In Senegal's capital Dakar, administrator Idrissa Fall said "we can not really say that he (Trump) is wrong". "There are millions of unemployed people in the United States, millions of people who don't have health care services or access to education and we would not deign to make comments as derogatory as that", said Jessie Duarte, the deputy secretary general of the African National Congress (ANC).

Trump's comments also reveal that this basic truth is shaping the White House's policy stances in the current immigration debate, something that is also being obscured with all sorts of rhetorical trickery.

Trump's latest comments provided ample fodder for talk- show hosts.

The African Union said Trump's statement "flies in the face of all accepted behavior and practice, " the Associated Press reported.
