Don't let Trump's vulgarity distract from his bigotry

Trump denies crude slur against migrant countries

More than 150 years after the abolition of slavery and more than 50 years after the passage of the Civil Rights Act, President Donald Trump's incendiary comments about immigrants have ripped open a jarring debate in the United States and around the world: Is the American president racist?

Trump's comments were allegedly made on Thursday at a White House meeting with lawmakers on immigration reform.

The doctor who oversaw 71-year-old President Trump's first formal physical Friday said the commander-in-chief is in "excellent health". Social media users across the continent posted images of modern skylines and lovely nature from their countries with the hashtag "shithole". "That's all I have to say", says Wangui Muraguri, a Kenyan Entrepreneur in Nairobi. "I think President Trump is racially ignorant and racially uninformed". "Haitians should not be seen as a bunch of immigrants who come to the United States to exploit U.S. resources".

That moment, though, should have critical to establishing the perception of candidate Trump and the potential pitfalls of his campaign: while U.S. Latinos immediately tried to tell the rest of the country that this man was risky and that his rhetoric would lead to even more hate-filled policies, America said "meh". But neither he nor the White House disputed the most controversial of his remarks: using the word "s--hole" to describe Africa nations and saying he would prefer immigrants from countries like Norway instead. People with blonde hair, who need a lot of sunscreen.

Timothy Naftali, a presidential historian and the former director of Nixon's presidential library, said Trump's most recent comments were more jarring both because they were revealed in real time and because they came during the course of a discussion about the laws governing who can gain entry into the United States.

The 2016 letter put Trump's blood pressure and cholesterol measurements in the healthy range, though he uses a cholesterol-lowering statin medication. In 1924, a set of laws was passed that set quotas limiting the number of people admitted to this country based on where they came from, with a goal of preserving the United States' ethnic homogeneity. He wants more funding for the wall, which is symbolic, yes, but that's exactly the point: As Frank Sharry of America's Voice puts it to me, the wall is a "middle finger to Latin America", a statement that "we don't want your kind".

There was public outrage after it was reported by the Washington Post that Trump had called some nations on the continent 'shithole countries'.

Some Nigerians did not hold back, with many on Twitter saying their country was a "shithole", but that it was "our shithole" to criticise. "There are millions of unemployed people in the U.S., millions of people who don't have health care services or access to education and we would not deign to make comments as derogatory as that", said Jessie Duarte, the deputy secretary general of the African National Congress (ANC). He said Haiti's government had summoned a USA official to explain Trump's remarks.

Mr. Trump sees not only non-white immigrants but also non-white, native-born USA citizens as people who do not belong in his America.

Trump's latest comments also provided ample fodder for talkshow hosts.
