African Union Asks Trump To Apologise For 'Shithole' Remarks

  • S--HOLE COUNTRIES’ President Trump is under fire for comments on immigrants from Haiti El Salvador and African nations. According to reports Trump asked ‘Why are we having all these people from s--hole countries come here

Republican Sens. Tom Cotton and David Perdue, who've been close allies to the president on the issue of immigration, were in a White House meeting with him Thursday when Trump, according to sources, expressed frustration with people coming to the USA from "sh-hole countries".

"Contrast that with President Trump asking why we can't have more immigrants from places like Norway, forgetting that it was people from sh*thole countries who built this country, who built the White House", Lemon concluded.

The White House did not deny Trump's comments in the meeting initially, instead referring to the presidents nationalistic views.

Trump denied in a pair of tweets on Friday that he made the comment, but referred to Haiti as a "very poor and troubled country".

A few hours earlier he wrote: "The language used by me at the Daca meeting was tough, but this was not the language used". He is also a design engineer in the defense industry and a Haitian immigrant who says the portrayal of his country is offensive.

On the anniversary, many people want to focus on honoring those who lost their lives.

The counsel general of Haiti in Miami told Local 10 News on Friday that he is shocked and outraged about President Donald Trump's alleged controversial remark about Haiti.

A source familiar with the meeting told CNN's Jake Tapper the President did not refer to Haiti as a "shithole" country but Trump did ask why the United States needs more Haitians and pushed to "take them out" of the deal.

"Why do we want all these people from "shithole countries" coming here?" Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), came in an Oval Office meeting with lawmakers on immigration reform.

This is not the first time that Donald Trump has uttered such unpalatable words.

The statement the African ambassadors issued expresses concern over the Trump administration's apparent increasing denigration of Africa "and people of color". Never said 'take them out.' Made up by Dems.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was equally critical of her onetime rival in last year's presidential campaign and the USA ambassador to Panama has tendered his resignation amid the ongoing scandal.

Speaking in London, Ont., Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he would not "opine on what the president may or may not have said" but called Canada a country of openness and respect. The president said he has a wonderful relationship with Haitians and suggested future meetings probably should be recorded.
