To those who still deny that Trump is racist

13 January, 2018, 04:49 | Author: Wade Massey

USA politicians from both parties condemned Mr Trump, with Mia Love, the Republican Representative and daughter of Haitian immigrants, saying the comments were "unkind, divisive, elitist, and fly in the face of our nation's values".

Clinton weighed in Friday afternoon, after Trump had been pummeled in the media for hours over having reportedly inveighed during an Oval Office meeting against immigrants from "s***hole countries" coming into the United States.

What Trump did do, they said, was "call out the imbalance in our current immigration system, which does not protect American workers and our national interest".

On Friday, Mr Trump on Friday tweeted that his language he used at the private meeting with lawmakers to discuss immigration legislation had been "tough".

But Senator Durbin, the only Democrat in the room, disputed the president's account.

Sen. Durbin said: 'In the course of his comments said things which were hate-filled, vile and racist. "He used those words", Durbin said.

"For this president to say that that country is a sh-thole, I felt like he was talking about my father-in-law, my husband, our children, because they are Haitian", she continued. Win tweeted, "Trump's comments about Haiti reflect nothing on the unbelievable country, and only on his own racism and xenophobia".

"I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Donald Trump is a racist", Democratic Rep. Ruben Gallego of Arizona tweeted. "Made up by Dems", Trump wrote. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!"

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

Trump's remarks were almost universally condemned as racist and demeaning, sparking an immediate backlash from global leaders and domestic lawmakers, both Democrats and Republicans. Trump said, according to these people, referring to countries mentioned by the lawmakers. He suggested that the United States should instead bring more people from countries such as Norway, whose prime minister he met with on Wednesday.

Former Swedish Prime Minister Carl Bildt had earlier tweeted that, judging by Solberg's visit, "keys to success with Trump are personal charm, a solid trade deficit with the U.S. and buying tons of United States military hardware". JB Pritzker, a Democrat running for IL governor, released the following statement Friday: "I've said it before and I'll say it again: Donald Trump is a racist and a xenophobe who has never had the dignity to be in the White House", said JB Pritzker.

"We always knew that president Trump doesnÂ't like people from certain countries or people or certain colours", alleged Democratic Congressman Luis Gutierrez. Trump's remarks were remarkable even by the standards of a president who has been accused of racism by his foes and who has routinely smashed through public decorum that his modern predecessors have generally embraced.

Rupert Colville, a UN human rights spokesman, said: "If confirmed, these are shocking and shameful comments from the president of the United States". Or the time he called Mexicans rapists and criminals during his campaign. He also blamed "both sides" after a white supremacist rally in August in Charlottesville, Virginia, turned violent and a woman protesting against the rally was killed.
