White House doctor: Donald Trump is 'in excellent health'

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of SC said Friday he spoke "directly" to President Trump inside the Oval Office after he reportedly used a crude slur to describe to "s***hole countries" from Africa.

Trump said, after lawmakers discussed restoring protections for immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries as part of a bipartisan immigration deal.

Hillary Clinton accused President Trump of holding "ignorant, racist views" on Friday, after media reports surfaced that the president decried immigration from "shithole countries" like Haiti, El Salvador and African nations.

Dick Durbin says he had high hopes of securing President Trump's approval of a bipartisan plan for "Dreamers" when he and South Carolina Republican Sen. He then reportedly asked why the United States didn't bring in more immigrants from a country like Norway.

In a series of Tweets early Friday, Trump admitted to using "tough" language but denied using the term "shithole" to describe Haiti and African countries.

Many advocates said the comments shed light on why the Trump administration last fall stripped Haitians of Temporary Protected Status - specialized protection granted to people from countries experiencing significant turmoil - in which it would be unsafe for its citizens to return.

A spokesman for the United Nations said Friday that Trump's reported words were racist.


"For the first representative of the United States of America to speak in such a manner is quite troubling and offensive", Jean said in the statement. But said Durbin, "sh**hole was the exact word used not once not twice but repeatedly".

White House issued statement yesterday but did not deny that he made the statement.

Thousands of African and Haitian immigrants call North Texas home, and many were shocked and disappointed in the comments. "I cried", Farah Larrieux said.

In a separate statement, the African Union, which represents all 55 countries on the continent, also condemned the reported remark and called for both a retraction and "an apology not only to the Africans but to all people of African descent around the globe".

As the 16-day DreamWeek, which is now ongoing, is about respecting, listening and learning from each other, Nakpodia said he can't dismiss Trump's comment. Her parents immigrated to the States when they were only children. Trump had said, according to these people, referring to countries mentioned by the lawmakers.

"There is no question in my mind he's a racist", Pinkett, who won season four of Trump's reality show, told MSNBC's Joy Reid. His famous "Islam hates us" needs no commentary- yes the religion of over 1.6 billion people came in the line of his fire.

Republican party: who needs enemies when you have a friend, and a president like Donald Trump?
