'Here is what my #shithole looks like:' African countries and Haiti react to Trump's remark

On Friday, AU chief Moussa Faki's spokeswoman Ebba Kalondo had also said Trump's comment "truly flies in the face of accepted behaviour and practice". "I will simply repeat that Canada is a country of openness of respect and we will continue to be there to support friends around the world and to welcome people who will contribute to building a stronger country".

"In addition to being insulting to us, more importantly it's quite disrespectful and insulting to the people that we're trying to help and the friends and colleagues that we've made there over the last eight years", Furey said in an interview.

Trump, in front of a room full of congressmen said that he would prefer people from "Norway" to come to the United States instead of places such as Haiti and El Salvador.

The government of Botswana has become a first African country to react and shoot down United States (US) President, Donald Trump's "shithole" remarks to Haiti and African countries. "There is a serious need for dialogue between the US Administration and the African countries".

He continued, "President Donald Trump's words describing the glorious people of Africa, El Salvador and Haiti is far worse than mere insensitivity or even nationalism".


In November, the Trump administration rescinded deportation protection granted to almost 60,000 Haitians after the 2010 natural disaster and told them to return home by July 2019.

He did not say specifically what Trump said that caused him to respond, but his defense of American values make clear that the gist was Trump's stunning comments that drew wall-to-wall media coverage Friday.

His comment clashed with a statement by two other Republican participants Sens.

And other Trump backers said the president's remarks show he's aligned with a long-standing conservative push to reshape immigration policy into a merit-based system rather than one based on family ties or admitting those from countries beset by poverty. Trump denied using the word Friday. "America deserves better, and when I'm governor, I'll protect immigrant families and make IL a welcoming state for all". Lindsey Graham, who was also at the meeting, seemed to confirm that report in a statement in which he said "following comments by the President, I said my piece directly to him yesterday". 'The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used, ' he said. "From the president of America, wow, that's insane", said Abass Diallo, owner of NC African Market on New Hope Church Road in east Raleigh.

"I must admit it really hurt when I heard that", said Crevecoeur.
