Here's How Some Places Trump Called "Shitholes" Are Reacting To His Comments

Here's How Some Places Trump Called

"This isn't just a story about vulgar language, it's about opening the door to humanity's worst side", he said. In his message, Mahama referred to speech made by Trump to African leaders at the United Nations in September wherein in which he had praised their nations - but also mistakenly referred to a nonexistent country called "Nambia".

The African Union (AU) issued a statement on Friday evening calling Trump's reported remarks outrageous and hurtful.

Late-night hosts like Jimmy Kimmel, Trevor Noah, and Stephen Colbert were quick to deride President Trump's reported "shithole countries" comments on Thursday.

In a tweet Friday morning, Trump said he used "tough" language at the meeting.

The Trump administration has announced its intention to end temporary protections for Salvadorans and Haitians who have lived in the USA since natural disasters in their countries more than a decade ago, as well as President Obama's deportation relief for people brought to the US illegally as children.

As he campaigned for president in 2016, Trump told Haitian-Americans in Miami that they were "amazing people" who add "so much to our country".

"Like other nations that have merit-based immigration, President Trump is fighting for permanent solutions that make our country stronger by welcoming those who can contribute to our society, grow our economy and assimilate into our great nation", Shah said.

The White House had made it clear that Trump's examination would not include a psychiatric test. Several Democratic lawmakers slammed Trump for his comments and described them as racist comment.

"First stop would be Osu Castle, Elmina Castle, and the over 40 Forts that detained about 30 million slaves, beaten and shipped out like sardine cans and then I will tell you the history of Africa and why people like you made that a "shithole" continent".

At 70 years old when he took office, Mr Trump is America's oldest president. "Sorry, but there is no other word one can use but "racist", said Rupert Colville, spokesman for United Nations rights chief Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein.

He adds that "this shows that the "loser immigrants" from yesterday's "shitholes" tend to turn into excellent, rich Americans after a few generations while their countries improve substantially".

"To our surprise, he or someone in the White House invited five other members of Congress", Durbin said, ticking off the names - House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy R-Calif., and Reps. "The president will always reject temporary, weak and unsafe stopgap measures that threaten the lives of hardworking Americans, and undercut immigrants who seek a better life in the United States through a legal pathway".

Across social media, Africans and Haitians shared pictures of attractive beaches, tree-lined streets and glamorous tourist resorts captioned with the insult.

Not all who were offended by what Trump said took the step to call him a racist. "Because not only does he think brown countries are sh*tholes, he thinks, what, we're never going to know what he said? We should have more people from Norway". In Kenya, East Africa's economic hub, political activist Boniface Mwangi pleaded: "Please don't confuse the. leaders we Africans elect with our handsome continent". "And it's not about some warm and fuzzy kumbaya America", he said before quoting Dr. King's words from 1967.
