Slurring nations with vulgar language crosses a line

Here's What Trump Had to Say About His 'Sh*thole Countries' Comment

In his meeting with a group of senators, he had questioned why the US would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "s-thole countries" in Africa as he rejected a bipartisan immigration deal, according to one participant and people briefed on the remarkable Oval Office conversation.

'Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?' Trump said, according to two people who were briefed on the meeting and then leaked the comment to The Washington Post.

First Baptist Dallas Pastor Robert Jeffress defended explicit comments by President Trump, where he referred to Haiti and some African nations as "shithole countries".

Lawmakers inside the meeting quoted Trump saying "Why do we want all these people from s***hole countries coming here?" following up with suggesting the USA should instead bring more people from countries like Norway.

"My colleague, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of SC spoke up and made a direct comment on what the president said". Part of what makes America so special is that we welcome the best and brightest in the world, regardless of their country of origin'.

After an emergency session to weigh Trump's remarks, the group said it was "concerned at the continuing and growing trend from the United States administration toward Africa and people of African descent to denigrate the continent and people of color".

President Jovenel Moise's government issued a strongly worded statement denouncing what it called a "racist" view of Haitian immigrants and people from African countries.

Republican Rep. Mia Love fired back at Trump's comments as well saying, "The President' comments are unkind, divisive, elitist, and fly in the face of our nation's values".

It was a surprisingly transparent presentation of Trump's broader immigration agenda, which would disproportionately affect non-white people in a number of other ways, from the large proportion of Africans who benefit from the diversity visa lottery to Americans and legal permanent residents, often Latino and Asian, who want to sponsor family members to come to the U.S.

One Twitter user made a meme featuring Ann Coulter holding a sign saying "I'm a miserable person who peddles hate to make money off of dumb republicans".

The Washington Post reported that he singled out Haitians, asking: "Why do we need more Haitians?"

Others shared pictures of their handsome continent, saying that it wasn't the "shithole" Mr Trump reportedly said it was. It's a middle finger to s--hole countries, but more to the point, it's a statement that we don't want the people from them.

Without directly referring to Trump's statement, it tweeted that "US remains committed to working together w/Africans to realize the promise of a more peaceful, more productive, more prosperous 21st century Africa".

"We were hoping for that, but the president is not prepared to do that at this moment", Durbin said.

Stephanie Jepsen, Chief of Donor Experience at the non-profit, called the comments disparaging to the memory of the lives lost.

Despite the criticism, the White House did not walk back the president's remarks. Trump wrote, "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians".

It can be hard to extract concrete policy proposals out of the president's off-the-cuff remarks, so we'll leave that task to his loyal translators. She said the president's remark was "obviously disheartening" but presented an opportunity "to rise above it and say, 'I'm going to be an example of kindness, of compassion'".

On Friday morning, Trump tweeted that he used "tough" language at the meeting, but not the reported vulgarity.

The sources said the president made the remark in a meeting as Sen.

The United States and Haiti have always been closely intertwined.

"However, we still think we can get there and we are very focused on trying to make sure that happens", she said.
