Africa calls Trump racist after 'shithole' remark

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, The Hill reports. President, are you a racist?' asked American Urban Radio Networks White House Correspondent April Ryan on Friday.

In the morning, The Washington Post reported that President Trump had called Haiti, El Salvador and African nations "shithole countries" during a White House meeting on immigration policy. We are certainly not a "shithole country".

In the event that you had any lingering doubts that President Donald Trump is a racist, it's time to throw away that uncertainty. Trump had met with the Norwegian prime minister on Wednesday.

"Why do we need more Haitians?"

The physical exam was conducted by Dr. Ronny Jackson, who has served for Presidents George W. Bush, Obama and Trump, at the Walter Reed National Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, according to Vox.

Last fall, the Department of Homeland Security canceled the Temporary Protected Status for Haitian immigrants. "I'm sorry but there is no other word for this but racist".

Trump insisted he "never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country". "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!" he said in one of the tweets.

African countries unite at UN against Trump slur
Nonetheless, Mr Trump vigorously defended his stance on immigration, insisting that he wanted a merit-based system of immigration. Trump said , "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough , but this was not the language used".

Senator Durbin, a member of the Democratic Party, was at the White House meeting on Thursday.

Trump's insults sparked the African group of ambassadors to the United Nations to issue an extraordinary statement condemning his "outrageous, racist and xenophobic remarks" and also demand a retraction and apology.

She adds that "we believe that a statement like this hurts our shared global values on diversity, human rights and reciprocal understanding". He encourages the enslavement of America by a core minority of our electorate; he massages into them the notion that American principal lives not in the belief and sacrifice of their own ancestors or our country's forefathers, but rather in their own pain, rage and fear.

"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.

Trump later tweeted that the language he used was tough, but not the language being reported.

But U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, who was at the meeting, insists the Republican president used the vulgar term.
