Haitian-American, Md. Lawmakers React To President's Comments On Immigrants

President Donald Trump.   Associated Press  Evan Vucci

In his tweet, Mahama referred to speech made by Trump to African leaders at the United Nations in September, when the USA president praised their nations but also mistakenly referred to a nonexistent country called "Nambia".

"Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?" he asked, according to multiple sources present at the White House meeting.

Trump criticised immigration to his country from El Salvador, Haiti and the African continent, by calling the group "shithole countries" at a meeting with Congress members at the White House on Thursday, according to U.S. media.

Trump later tweeted that the language he used was tough, but not the language being reported. Not only does it rank as the happiest country on the planet, but also three out of every four Norwegians consider Trump a threat to the world. "Dems push for more money to fight opioids MORE [R-Wis.], who in my opinion, have been less and less vocal as time has progressed in denouncing Donald's behavior", he said. There is bipartisan support for some form of protection, but just how much and what immigration enforcements need to be added in exchange is what's being negotiated now.

Trump's latest comments have sparked global outrage and have been widely condemned as racist and extremely offensive.

"Africa/U.S. relations will take strain from this, with a leader who has failed to reconcile humanity", Maimane said.

At first the White House did not deny that the remark was made. "I have not read one of them that's inaccurate". The details of the proposal have not been publicised, but the President said: "The so-called bipartisan DACA deal. was a big step backwards".

Alexis Sanchez should join Manchester United on one condition - Paul Merson
According to the Express , Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho believes Ozil is "desperate" to join the Red Devils. Reports in Italy and England suggest United are ready to hijack any Manchester City move for Sanchez.

In a series of tweets on Friday morning, Trump said the language used by him at the meeting was "tough, but this was not the language used", stressing that he "never said anything derogatory about Haitians". "But I've never met a Haitian who isn't strong".

"I can not believe that in the history of the White House, in the Oval Office, any president has ever spoken words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday", Durbin told reporters.

Democratic senator Dianne Feinstein called the comments "beneath the dignity of the presidency" and said Mr Trump's desire to see more immigrants from countries like Norway was "an effort to set this country back generations by promoting "a homogeneous, white society".

"I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians", the president said.

Akufo-Addo's predecessor, John Dramani Mahama, also criticized Trump's comments Saturday.

Trump has often generated controversy over his comments on immigration and related issues, beginning his presidential campaign by referring to Mexican immigrants as "drug dealers", "rapists", "killers" and "murderers." We hear you loud and clear, Mr. President.
