Trump declared in 'excellent health' after first medical checkup as president

Comedy Central

One Democratic lawmaker says that Republicans need to loudly denounce the disparaging remarks President Donald Trump allegedly made about Haiti and African countries.

South Africa's ruling African National Congress called Trump's comments "extremely offensive", while opposition leader Mmusi Maimane said "the hatred of Obama's roots now extends to an entire continent".

Trump said this during a bipartisan meeting of lawmakers in his Oval Office.

He did not address the reports that he disparaged African nations and ignored questions about the comments from reporters.

On Friday he denied using that language.

He adds that "this shows that the "loser immigrants" from yesterday's "shitholes" tend to turn into excellent, rich Americans after a few generations while their countries improve substantially".

But he's not the only member of the Ford family that's given back.

As he campaigned for president in 2016, Trump told Haitian-Americans in Miami that they were "amazing people" who add "so much to our country". Lindsay Graham, suggested the reported remarks were accurate: "Following comments by the president, I said my piece directly to him". Nothing Trump ever did in his life is as hard or frightening as leaving everything you know and setting off for an uncertain future in a new country (to listen to him, you'd think his arduous journey from Queens to Manhattan was an act of superhuman daring).

Haiti said it was shocked by Trump's reported remarks on Thursday and summoned the top United States diplomat in the country, asking for an apology if the vulgar term had been used.

El Salvador slammed them as "deplorable".

He continued, "President Donald Trump's words describing the glorious people of Africa, El Salvador and Haiti is far worse than mere insensitivity or even nationalism".

"You can not dismiss entire countries and continents as "shitholes", whose entire populations, who are not white, are therefore not welcome", said United Nations human rights spokesman Rupert Colville.

Chelsea Manning To Run For US Senate In Maryland
Race filings demonstrate that Manning, 30, presented her appointment to the Federal Election Commission on Thursday as a Democrat. Before leaving the White House, President Barack Obama commuted all but four months of Manning's remaining prison term.

Congressional Black Caucus Chair Cedric Richmond and House Judiciary top Democrat Jerrold Nadler said they would seek to introduce a censure resolution against Trump next week.

On Thursday, Trump came under fire for questioning why the USA should permit immigrants from "shithole countries" during a meeting with lawmakers.

Haiti's Ambassador Paul Getty Altidor, a graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology who previously served as vice president of the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund in Washington, said his government in Port-au-Prince had summoned the chargé d'affaires from the United States to explain the president's remarks.

The comment "truly flies in the face of accepted behaviour and practice", said Ebba Kalondo, spokeswoman for AU chief Moussa Faki. A year earlier, Bornstein said in a December 2015 letter: "If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency".

Botswana also said it had summoned the USA ambassador to that country to "express its displeasure" and had asked him whether Botswana "is regarded as a "shithole" country".

This is not the first time Trump has rubbed Africans up the wrong way - he was widely derided previous year after he twice referred to Namibia as "Nambia".

"It is disheartening because when I look at my parents that's not what I see, when I look at my parents I see hard workers who came here struggled, just to give us a better life", Jacques said.

Many Africans reminded the United States of its historic role in the continent's woes.

"This is what I would like President Trump to do: Don't let the King Holiday find you using your Twitter account in an inappropriate way", Bernice King told The Associated Press in an interview. An estimated three million people were affected by the quake.

Neither Murkowski nor Sullivan included any comment regarding what action, if any, they think the Senate should take in response to Trump's comment.

"This is no different from what Hollywood and Western media have been saying about Africa for decades".
