I am not a 'racist', says Trump

16 January, 2018, 08:15 | Author: Wade Massey

The Department of International Relations and Cooperation (DIRCO) confirmed the move after Trump was quoted as saying African countries, alongside Haiti and El Savador, constituted "shitholes" from where migrants into the USA were undesirable.

The summons add to the fallout over Trump's comments last week in which he referred to African nations as "shithole countries" during an Oval Office discussion about immigration.

Trump then suggested that the US admit more people from countries like Norway.

"It's always been a foreign policy priority of our government to fight for the respect and dignity of our countrymen independent of their immigration status", Martinz said. Trump wasn't apologetic and denied he was racist, instead blaming the media for distorting his meaning, said the confidant, who wasn't authorized to disclose a private conversation and spoke on condition of anonymity. When asked who they would blame if the government shut down, 31 percent said congressional Republicans, 29 percent said congressional Democrats, and 18 percent said Trump. Durbin said the remarks were "vile, hate-filled and clearly racial in their content".

"They don't want security at the border", Trump said.

It was such a simple statement from Trump, but as O'Donnell pointed out, it said so much about how far detached Donald Trump is from reality.

"Some of their own leaders have taken advantage of them", she said.

The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s niece ripped accusations that President Trump is a "racist" for speaking in an off-color manner about third world countries.

The governments of Haiti, Botswana and Senegal also summoned USA diplomats in those countries in the past few days.

Democratic U.S. Senator Dick Durbin told reporters in a video that he personally heard that Trump used "those words advisedly".

Yesterday, they backtracked and challenged other senators' descriptions of the remarks. We have great talks going on. Mr Graham also attended the meeting. He called the new stories a "gross misrepresentation". "I spoke to one of those friends". Then, he added that he had "wonderful relationships" with the people of Haiti and that everything was invented by the Democratic Party to make him look bad. "Probably should record future meetings -unfortunately, no trust!"

This weekend The US president was forced to deny he's a racist after reportedly branding African and South American countries "s***holes".

As part of the deal for "Dreamers", Trump wants the Bill to include provisions to build a wall along the Mexican border, eliminate the diversity visa lottery programme, and end "chain-migration".

I am the least racist person you have ever interviewed", Trump told reporters as he arrived at the Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Florida for dinner with Republican House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy.
