African Union: Trump 's***hole' remarks dishonor 'American creed'

Most of Maine's congressional delegation has condemned President Trump's reported description of Haiti, El Salvador and several African nations as "shithole" countries.

Trump reportedly made the remarks at a White House meeting on immigration on Thursday and a USA senator who attended the gathering said on Friday that the president used "vile, vulgar" language, including repeatedly using the word "shithole".

President Nana Akufo-Addo today said Donald Trump's reported description of African nations as "sh**hole countries" was unacceptable, while his predecessor branded the U.S. head of state a racist. Trump questioned why the USA should accept more immigrants from Haiti and Africa over places like Norway.

Outrage continues to grow over comments President Donald Trump denies he made about African countries and Haiti.

The Washington Post reported the comments Thursday.

Thursday's White House huddle was held to discuss a bipartisan deal that would limit immigrants from bringing family members into the country, restrict the green card visa lottery and boost border security, in exchange for shielding hundreds of thousands of young people known as "Dreamers" from deportation. Two Trump allies who were in attendance, Sens.

She added: "This behaviour is unacceptable from the leader of our nation", and called on Mr Trump to apologise to the American people "and the nations he so wantonly maligned".

After an emergency session to weigh Trump's remarks, the group said it was "concerned at the continuing and growing trend from the USA administration toward Africa and people of African descent to denigrate the continent and people of colour".

"Africans and Haitians come from "shithole" countries?"

Trump later went on to argue: "Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country".

Moussa Faki Mahamat the African Union Chairperson tweeted last night: "I am appalled by the unfortunate remarks attributed to the President of the United States on migrants from African countries, Haiti and Salvador".

The program extends legal protections to 800,000 immigrants who entered the United States illegally as children.

Hunder said he expects Trump will hear from Haitian President Jovenel Moise and African leaders about the vulgar remark.

Trump's latest comments provided ample fodder for talk- show hosts. How are they doing once they get here? "Great opportunity missed. Too bad!"

He tweeted: Reason I canceled my trip to London is that I am not a big fan of the Obama Administration having sold perhaps the best located and finest embassy in London for 'peanuts, ' only to build a new one in an off location for 1.2 billion dollars.

Haitians' TPS had been continually renewed since then, but in May, then-DHS head and now Trump chief of staff John Kelly announced that their status, which was coming up again for renewal in July, would only be renewed for six months and reevaluated in November... "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).
