Trump Offers Vague Denial About Language on Immigrants

The organisation representing African countries has demanded that US President Donald Trump apologise after he reportedly called nations on the continent "shitholes".

Haiti said it was shocked by the reported remarks and summoned the top U.S. diplomat in the country, asking for an apology if the term had been used.

"The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used", Trump said.

Orange County Commissioner Victoria Siplin, who is of Haitian ancestry, said Friday that Trump is misinformed about the island nation, the first independent country founded by freed slaves.

Democrats are demanding protections for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals recipients in exchange for border security funding that could include money for Trump's promised border wall.

Mr Durbin told reporters of Trump's continued slurs.

The Government of Botswana is wondering why President Trump, must use this descriptor and derogatory word, when talking about countries with whom the USA has had cordial and mutually beneficial bilateral relations for so many years.

"We do not recall the President saying these comments specifically but what he did call out was the imbalance in our current immigration system, which does not protect American workers and our national interest".

While Mr Trump announced the abolition of the programme for "dreamers" in October, he gave Congress six months to come up with a legislative solution.


A day after President Donald Trump reportedly made highly incendiary comments about immigrants and African countries, two Republican senators said they don't recall those vulgar characterizations from the president.

Henrik Heldahl, a commentator for the political website Amerikansk Politikk, said the sentiment would have been welcomed in Norway had Trump used less coarse language for Haiti and African countries.

President Trump tweeted he never said anything derogatory about Haitians, other than Haiti is a very poor and troubled country.

"It's one thing to ask if he's a racist and that's OK, but the next thing is, since this continues to happen there needs to be something to dynamic, some kind of leverage", Ryan said. "Made up by Dems".

The president implied Friday morning on Twitter that maybe he should start recording meetings because there is no trust.

The ANC is not in a position to stop any president from any country from saying anything they wish, she said. Wall was not properly funded, Chain & Lottery were made worse and U.S. would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime.

He reiterated his call for ending chain migration and the lottery route to immigration.

Rep. Mia Love, R-UT, herself a daughter of Haitian immigrants, issued a statement asking for the president to apologize for his "unkind, divisive and elitist" language.
