Africa startled by Trump's sudden and vulgar attention

Donald Trump

As for Africa, he asked why more people from "shithole countries" should be allowed into the United States, the sources said.

Some Democrats are threatening to withhold their votes - which Republicans will need to push that legislation through Congress - unless an immigration accord is reached. "That's the American Dream". For as little as $3, you can help us.

Another source familiar with the meeting said Trump was questioning why the United States should take in unskilled laborers from the countries under discussion and should instead welcome immigrants from nations that can offer skilled workers.

Trump's comments were also popular on Stormfront, a message board for white supremacists.

Trump has called himself the "least racist person that you've ever met". "Take them out", a source told CNN's Jim Acosta.

Trump insulted the continent of Africa in his comments as well, leading to fierce reaction on Twitter.

Republican leaders were largely silent, though House Speaker Paul Ryan said the vulgar language was "very unfortunate, unhelpful".

The NAACP accused Trump of "lowbrow, callous and unfiltered racism".

His comments came after two senators presented details of the bipartisan compromise that would extend the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (Daca) protections against deportation for hundreds of thousands of young immigrants, and also strengthen border protections.

Trump's comment was referring to immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries, the Post reported, and he then suggested the US try to increase immigration from countries like Norway.

Matthews apologizes for Cosby comment
In 2008, he apologized for saying she only became a US senator and presidential candidate because " her husband messed around ". MSNBC recently admitted that Matthews had settled with a former producer who accused him of sexual harassment .

By now it's clear that Trump uses ethnic nationalism and racist rhetoric as a political tool, and that he is playing into a well of prejudice he sees among the grass roots against immigrants with dark skin.

With this, hundreds of thousands of migrants face possible deportation from the U.S., the BBC said. Kimmel blasted the President for his comments.

DACA protects hundreds of thousands of young undocumented immigrants brought to the USA as children from deportation.

Outrage spilled quickly across party lines Thursday as Washington learned about Trump's remarks.

Rep. Mia Love, R-Utah, the daughter of Haitian immigrants, called Trump's words "divisive" and "elitist" and demanded he apologize to Americans and citizens from the countries "he so wantonly maligned".

Trump's comments "are further proof that his Make America Great Again agenda is really a Make America White Again agenda", black Democratic lawmaker Cedric Richmond said.

Veteran presidential campaigner Claude Taylor said, "We never got to hear the N word tapes so it's kind of nice of Trump to show us his true colors like this". Trump said, according to people briefed on the meeting who spoke with The Washington Post.

On Twitter, former Mexican President and longtime Trump critic Vicente Fox said the USA leader's mouth "is the foulest shithole in the world".

In response to the report, White House spokesman Raj Shah did not deny Mr. Trump's comment.

In Lagos, Nigeria, IT worker Mayowa Okuwade said: "I think every African country should just learn from this and probably just stay in their country and work with their resources ..."

"The American people don't want that style of immigration reform", Cotton told reporters about the bipartisan senators' offer. "I can't attest to the veracity of them", Lotter replied.
