  • Withdraw and Apologize 54 African Countries Ask US President Trump Over 'Shithole' Slur

"What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made".

The Washington Post first reported Trump's vulgar remarks Thursday.

"Personally, as someone from South Shithole, I'm offended, Mr. President", South Africa native and "The Daily Show" host Trevor Noah said Thursday.

The comment came as President Trump rejected a bipartisan immigration deal, according to people briefed on the Oval Office conversation.

Trump defended his "tough" rhetoric on immigration, but said he didn't say anything derogatory toward immigrants. Tom Cotton, both Republicans, issued a joint statement Friday. "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians!" he posted.

US President Donald Trump speaks during a meeting on prison reform in the Roosevelt Room of the White House in Washington, DC, yesterday.

The New York Daily News cover for Friday focused on the story that's making all the headlines today, using a captivating image that gives a flawless summation of how many feel about President Donald Trump. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!" the president added.

Trump Attempts to Clean Up "Shithole"
Ras Mubarak, a lawmaker in Ghana, called for a boycott by developing countries against the U.S. until Mr Trump leaves office. Haiti's ambassador to the United States, Paul Alidor, said he had asked for an official explanation of the comments.


Other foreign officials like Hugo Martinez of El Salvador and representatives of the African National Congress are seeking an official response from US authorities regarding Trump's comments. Durbin recounted that Trump went on to discuss similarly protected immigration from Africa, "calling the nations they come from s-holes". He then reportedly asked why the United States didn't bring in more immigrants from a country like Norway.

"In relation to the deplorable expressions attributed to President Donald Trump" El Salvador's government called for "an official declaration from the United States government to clarify them or deny them", the Central American nation's foreign ministry said in a statement.

And when I mentioned that fact to him, he said "Haitians, do we need more Haitians?"

Sen. Richard J. Durbin (D-IL), who attended the meeting said Trump's denial is a lie.

Trump has said he wants to help Dreamers, but only if he gets something in return: his border wall and other security measures, an end to the diversity visa lottery, and limits on family-based visas, which the president derisively refers to as "chain migration".

"If the remarks attributed to President Trump are accurate, they have no place in our public discourse", said the statement from Speaker Richard Corcoran, Speaker-designate Jose Oliva, Speaker pro tempore Jeanette Nuñez, Republican Leader Ray Rodrigues, Democratic Leader Janet Cruz, Democratic Leader-designate Kionne McGhee and others.
