African ambassadors condemn Trump remarks as 'racist'

Donald Trump: Shock over US president's migrants remarks

"The president is in excellent health and I look forward to briefing some of the details on Tuesday", Dr Ronny Jackson said in a statement.

Trump is specially pushing to end family-based immigration, which conservatives call "chain migration", and which gives a leg up to family members of people already in the United States.

"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.

Ghana, located in West Africa, is one of the region's most politically stable countries, and it has long enjoyed friendly relations with the United States - according to a Pew poll from 2015, 89 percent of the country said they had a favorable view of America, though that number dropped to 59 percent when the same poll was conducted in 2017.

Special status given to about 59,000 Haitian immigrants, protecting them from deportation following the 2010 natural disaster, will end next year following a Trump administration ruling last month.

The remarks leaked out, transforming a debate about saving from deportation some 700,000 young immigrants brought to the country illegally as children into another drama about Trump himself. Trump allegedly said after being presented with a proposal to restore protections for immigrants from the countries in question.

"I think it's going to go very well", he said, adding that he would be "surprised if it doesn't".

Trump's allies have argued that the controversy over his remarks is overblown. He referred to NFL players protesting systemic racism as "sons of bitches" and suggested they should be benched or fired for their refusal to stand during the national anthem. In Kenya, East Africa's economic hub, political activist Boniface Mwangi pleaded: "Please don't confuse the. leaders we Africans elect with our attractive continent".

CDC: Number of flu-related pediatric deaths rises to 20
Seven children died from the flu last week, bringing the total pediatric flu deaths reported to the CDC this season up to 20. It's no secret by now that the flu vaccine is not a good match with the H3N2 flu strain that is dominating the season.

Among other objections, Mr Trump said the plan did not provide proper funding for the proposed wall that he made a centre-piece of his election campaign.

King's son, Martin Luther King III, met with Trump on the last King holiday, four days before Trump took office. "I don't know how to break this to you, but I think the president might be racist".

Trump issued a statement on Friday denying the vulgar words attributed to him, though he admitted to having used strong language in the Thursday discussion.

On Monday, America will celebrate MLK Day in honor of the civil rights hero.

He stressed the USA was "much stronger than the sum total of one man". He spent the a year ago of his life condemning what he called the "triple evils" of racism, poverty and war.

But Ms Phoebe Mutetsi in Kigali, Rwanda, said she was not falling for it. "Trump is a troll", she said.

"He didn't just name a white country, he named the whitest, so white they wear moon-screen", he said.
