Orange County commissioner condemns Trump's Haiti remarks

Durbin on Trump'He Said These Hate Filled Things

All 54 African ambassadors to the United Nations decried Donald Trump's reported remarks as "outrageous, racist, and xenophobic" on Friday, a day after U.S. media reported that Trump had referred to African states, Haiti, and El Salvador as "s***hole countries".

In a discussion about immigration from African nations, Mr. Trump asked why he would want "all these people from shithole countries", according to people with direct knowledge of the conversation.

He also denied saying "anything derogatory about Haitians other than that Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country". When he spoke to reporters on Air Force One earlier this week, White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said it wouldn't be included in the physical, The Hill reported.

The president's thoughts on immigration sprawled through several Twitter posts on Friday morning before he tweeted his denials about some of the language he used at the DACA meeting.

The Vatican newspaper on Friday branded US President Donald Trump's reported comments about African countries and Haiti as "particularly harsh and offensive".

Trump's alleged comments were met with condemnation from the United Nations.

But Mr Trump has denied using the language reported.

The church says they have been working with refugees in Haiti since the island was struck by a 7.0 magnitude natural disaster that killed more than 220,000 people in 2010.

In Haiti, on the eighth anniversary of a devastating quake that killed about 220,000 people, the government also summoned the top U.S. diplomat for an explanation, while the Haitian ambassador to Washington called for an apology.

The UN Office of the High Commissioner on Human Rights (OHCHR) has denounced President Trump's remarks as "shocking and shameful", and "racist".

"Sh**hole? Thought they said he was so impressed with us just last September?"

If Trump can use his vile brand of "tough language" about entire nations of people, he should be willing to listen when somebody throws words like "racist" and "ignorant" right back at him, right? "Probably should record future meetings". Wall was not properly funded, Chain & Lottery were made worse and United States of America would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime.

The controversial comments were brought up while the president argued against opening the USA borders to Haitians and Africans fleeing poverty, starvation, and violence in their homelands.

"He said, 'Haitians? Do we need more Haitians?' And then he went on and started to describe the immigration from Africa that was being protected in this bipartisan measure", Sen.
