Here's How Some Places Trump Called "Shitholes" Are Reacting To His Comments

Horrified Tweets About Donald Trump's Immigration Comment Show What We're All Feeling

Dick Durbin, a Democrat who attended an immigration meeting with President Trump on Thursday, confirmed Friday that the president made comments he considered "vile and racist" about immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries.

Democratic Senator Dick Durbin of IL, who was present at the meeting, said the reports were accurate and that "shithole was the exact word used once not twice but repeatedly".

"Why are we having all these people from s-- countries come here?" the president responded, according to two people who spoke to The Washington Post.

Amid the furore the president criticised the immigration proposal.

In 2016, in response to a question about then-candidate Trump's views on immigration and his intention to build a wall along the USA border with Mexico, Francis said a man with such views was "not Christian". These immigrants have lived in a kind of limbo since previous year, when Mr. Trump scrapped an Obama-era program known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA.

The deal they presented to would include a generous pathway to citizenship for perhaps millions of illegal immigrants, while giving him funding for about 10 percent of his border wall and - at best - a slim cut of about 3 percent in the chain of family migration. Writing in an op-ed for, he called Trump "an enemy of compassion" and detailed the nobility of the Haitian people he has encountered.

Trump said in a series of Friday morning tweets: "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used".

Further, on Thursday, a statement from a Trump spokesman didn't deny what had been reported about the president's comments.

He has characterized Mexican immigrants as "rapists", repeatedly questioned the loyalty of Muslim immigrants, denounced NFL players for kneeling during the national anthem in protest at police brutality against African Americans, and made questionable comments about a violent white supremacist rally.

Ndiang'ui is from Kenya and now teaches diversity and is concerned about the president's comments.

Mr. Trump's incendiary comments and subsequent tweets destabilized the negotiations over the fate of hundreds of thousands of immigrants brought to the United States illegally as children. "I'm sorry but there is no other word for this but racist".

McWhorter noted that the American public has listened to Trump for several years and it's more than clear that Trump has a "racist bias". "Ours is not a shithole country". Pelosi said, alluding to a hamburger chain called Five Guys.

The statement said Gaborone had sought clarification on whether "Botswana is regarded as a "shithole" country given that there are Botswana nationals residing in the US".

"This is like throwing gasoline to the fire", Representative Adriano Espaillat, a New York Democrat, said of Trump's reported language.
