Botswana officially asks United States ambassador if Trump considers it a 's***hole' country

Botswana officially asks United States ambassador if Trump considers it a 's***hole' country

"Other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country", he posted on Twitter. "Internationally, such language will deepen the isolation of the United States, a country that is already losing its global prestige".

"The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used", Trump wrote in a tweet.

The ANC, Duarte said, will not deign to make comments as derogatory as Trump's to describe the United States. I don't think that that's ever going to happen.

But Tucker Carlson of Fox News had it right when he asked: What's wrong with saying that?

A White House statement issued Thursday notably did not deny that Trump used the vulgarity to refer to African countries, but on Friday morning, Trump shifted gears. To Obama before he signed Obamacare into law, giving millions of people access to health insurance.

Mia Love, a congresswoman from Utah who is of Haitian descent, called them "unkind" and "divisive" while South Carolina's Tim Scott, the only black Republican senator, said if Trump really did use those words, it would be "disappointing".

There are many reasons a president shouldn't say such a thing.

That comment was racist.

"Ours is not a shithole country and neither is Haiti or any other country in distress", Jessie Duarte, the deputy secretary general of South Africa's ruling African National Congress told reporters at a news conference in East London. What do they all have in common? What is Norway? Majority, overwhelming majority, white.

In November, the Trump administration announced it was ending the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) that has allowed 59,000 Haitians to legally work in the United States since 2010 when an quake killed an estimated 300,000 people, leaving millions homeless.

But, nonetheless, Donald Trump's comment was racist. "This is the president of the United States, the leader of the free world, making these racist statements".

Reacting to the comment in a tweet posted at 6:56 p.m. Mr Mahama expressed shock over the USA president's action and charged the African Union (AU) to condemn same.

Well, guess what jack ass? "When you have heads of state who mess with the constitutions to perpetuate their power".

But what is alarming is that Trump feels empowered to spread such ignorance aloud in a room full of men and women who, like him, were elected to represent the American people, many of whom are from Haiti, El Salvador and nations in Africa. It says, "You're exhausted, you're poor, you're hungry". The country suffered trade embargoes in the wake of independence from powers including the United States, anxious the freed slaves would spark revolt elsewhere. "America's greatness is built on diversity, or have you forgotten your immigrant background, Donald?" So are you trying to imply that the United States was some kind of shit hole? "If it wasn't, it would mean we voted for a racist, like a real one, and we'd have to get pitchforks and chase him out of office".
