Haiti wants clarification on Trump's comments, says ambassador

President Trump on Jan. 8

The Trump administration has announced its intention to end temporary protections for Salvadorans and Haitians who have lived in the USA since natural disasters in their countries more than a decade ago, as well as President Obama's deportation relief for people brought to the US illegally as children.

President Donald Trump acknowledged Friday that he used "tough" language during a meeting on efforts toward a bipartisan immigration deal but appeared to deny using the term "shithole" to refer to some countries. "I can say now, Donald Trump is a racist", she said. He also allegedly asked why the country needed more immigrants from Haiti, and said to "take them out". Reacting to Trump's remarks, the African Union continental body said it was "frankly alarmed" by Trump's comments.

The Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro said the problem with Trump's remarks was that he used a curse word and that "he said it behind closed doors unlike Joe Biden, while Conservative pundit Ann Coulter said that "s***hole countries" should be given respect by being called "s***hole nations". I understand how powerful they are. But I can not believe in the history of the White House in that office, any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday.

"You've seen the comments in the press. Whether he did or not, I have personally been to those places and found them to be attractive and exciting". "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!" the president tweeted.

Earlier in the week, Trump had assured lawmakers that he would accept any agreement crafted by Congress. Say, 'I did not mean this.

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. Does this president reflect American values?

Trump on Thursday rejected a pitch from a bipartisan team of senators on a compromise immigration deal to protect DACA participants while increasing border security. And every Republican with a sense of fairness should call on his or her party to quit using the Dreamers - who are Americans in every way that matters most - as pawns in a cruel game. Ryan also recalled at length his family's own Irish heritage. "The positive comment on Norway makes the underlying sentiment very clear", Colville said.

Trump's comments highlighted months of concerns about his lack of focus on Africa, including empty ambassadorial posts in key countries like South Africa, Egypt, Congo and Somalia. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., who on Thursday before publication of the news of Trump's remarks refused to comment on what was said. Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar told NPR's Morning Edition that he "can't condone vocabulary that another person actually utilizes in that aspect".

"Durbin added, "When the question was asked about Haitians. he said, 'Haitians?"

"Any word can be utilized in an offensive aspect", Gosar said.

"The president is in excellent health and I look forward to briefing some of the details on Tuesday", Jackson said in a brief statement distributed by the White House.
