Trump's immigration remarks lambasted from left and right

13 January, 2018, 06:53 | Author: Wade Massey

'Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?' Trump said, according to two people who were briefed on the meeting and then leaked the comment to The Washington Post.

"You can not dismiss entire countries and continents as "s...holes" whose entire populations, who are not white, are therefore not welcome", Colville said.

Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch, who hailed Trump as a great president after passage of the tax cut, Tweeted Thursday: 'I look forward to getting a more detailed explanation regarding the President's comments.

White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah defended Trump afterward and not deny the comments were said.

She said that while the president and critics may argue over what was said in the DACA meeting, many in the immigrant community will remember the initial vulgar quote that was reported.

"These are shocking and shameful comments from the President of the United States".

After some members of Congress, including a Haitian-American Republican from Utah, condemned the remarks, WPLN asked members of Tennessee's congressional delegation their views.

He said Trump used the most vulgar term "more than once".

After he finished his listless remarks, Trump ignored questions from reporters about whether he was a racist, and whether he referred to specific countries as "s**tholes" and left the room. It's about opening the door wider to humanity's worst side, about validating and encouraging racism and xenophobia that will potentially disrupt and destroy the lives of many people. The news cycle moves so very quickly these days, it's hard to maintain an appropriate level of outrage over the disaster in the White House.

"The president's measure of human beings, immigrants or otherwise, is un-American". For the record, Barack Obama was born in Hawaii, and produced the birth certificate to go with it.

We've spent roughly the past 16 hours collecting the media's reactions to President Donald Trump's reported "sh*thole" comment.

"Haitians don't deserve such treatment", Altidor said. "Each comment conveys more jingoistic flag-waving and the illusion of a common enemy, which contributes to some people instinctively and protectively guarding themselves and their sense of identity".

The sources said the president made the remark in a meeting as Sen.

In an apparent response to the criticism, Mr Trump took to Twitter late on Thursday night.

Former Haitian Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe tweeted, "SHAME ON TRUMP!"

"Totally unacceptable! uncalled for moreover it shows a lack a respect and IGNORANCE never seen before in the recent history of the U.S. by any President!"

"What a lot of people miss is, America is not a church where everyone should be welcomed regardless of race and background", Jeffress said. His equivocating on the white supremacist, white nationalist rallies in Charlottesville, Va., his anger toward black National Football League players previous year, his inhumane crackdown on those in the country illegally but who are otherwise law-abiding, leave little doubt about his preferences.

To get the deal he wants, Mr Trump needed to have Democrats to agree to fund his border wall in return for solving the decades-old problem of what to do with undocumented migrants who came to the United States as children.

Washington also recently rescinded TPS for Haitians and Nicaraguans.
