Will the GOP ever stand up to Trump's naked bigotry?

Trump ignores questions at MLK event

"President Trump, One day, I'll take you to a "shithole" country called Ghana", wrote Ghanaian Edmond Prime Sarpong on Facebook.

He has emerged as a leader in negotiations over how to codify the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, a 2012 executive order from President Barack Obama protecting roughly 800,000 immigrants from deportation who were brought to the country illegally by their parents as young children.

The African Union has also said it was alarmed by President Trump's remarks and issued a statement calling for the USA leader to apologise for the remarks.

President Trump's remarks about African countries and Haiti drew condemnation from a group of African ambassadors to the United Nations who called them "outrageous, racist and xenophobic" and demanded a retraction and apology.

"The African Union Mission wishes to express its infuriation, disappointment and outrage over the unfortunate comment made by Mr. Donald Trump, President of the United States of America, which remarks dishonor the celebrated American creed and respect for diversity and human dignity", the AU mission in Washington said in a statement.

"Donald Trump had already made his bias against Haitians clear, having ended Temporary Protected Status for Haitians past year and reportedly making deeply insulting comments about the Haitian people that play into decades of hateful stereotypes", Williams added.

During a White House meeting Thursday on immigration reform, President Donald Trump reportedly referred to African nations as "sh**hole countries".

"It hurts evangelism", Warren said of the president's comments. King's memory is marked with a national holiday, which falls this year on Monday.

Trump eventually denied that he singled out Haitians and rejecting reports that he told the group of lawmakers the United States should "take them out" of the deal.

On Saturday morning, Trump took to Twitter to slam the Democrats over the controversy: "The Democrats are all talk and no action".

But aside from that word, what the president said was a big, big deal, something that can't be ignored.

Among other objections, Trump said the plan did not provide proper funding for the proposed wall that he made a center-piece of his election campaign. "The Wall was not properly funded, Chain and Lottery were made worse and the USA would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime countries".

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

Trump denied he ever said "anything derogatory" about the people of Haiti.

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".

An emotional Sunny Hostin on "The View" Friday, noting that her husband's family is from Haiti, said she's always resisted labeling Trump because she couldn't look into his heart.

"His comments seemed to disparage not only Haitians and African nations but all immigrants from black and brown countries, espousing a clear preference for white, European immigrants", he continued. Her local church includes parishioners from Uganda, Iran, Turkey, China and other countries.

UN Spokesman Rupert Colville said Trump's comments, if confirmed, were "shocking and shameful" and opened the door to "humanity's worst side and go against universal values".

In exchange for protecting them, Trump wanted more restrictions on legal migrants from Africa, the Caribbean and Latin America, among other changes.

Trump's reported comments angered both Democrats and Republicans, and revived questions about his penchant for racially charged remarks. Trump said this during a bipartisan meeting of lawmakers in his Oval Office.

In an oddly-timed coincidence, the U.S. president yesterday signed a declaration honoring killed civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr, three days before the federal holiday celebrated in his honor.

Legislators have until January 19 to approve a government-wide stopgap spending bill, and Republicans will need Democratic votes to push the measure through. Two immigration hard-liners, Republican Sens.
