Haiti 'shocked and outraged' over reported Trump remarks

Trump tweets: "Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country". Mr. Trump also said the United States should admit more people from places like Norway, an overwhelmingly white country.

His remarks reportedly left the assembled politicians "taken aback", the paper said, with Lindsey Graham, the Republican senator for SC, and Richard Durbin, Democratic senator for IL, among those in the room. "Apparently President Trump has to open a book to learn about Haiti". Part of what makes America so special is that we welcome the best and brightest in the world, regardless of their country of origin'. "When you think about immigrants from Norway and immigrants from Haiti, or African countries, what's the difference except skin color?" she questioned. Trump reportedly asked seven members of Congress present at the meeting.

No one is denying, however, that Trump rejected a bipartisan immigration deal brought to him by six senators that addressed not only the now-ended Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, but also the diversity lottery and temporary protected status programs, funding for border security, and some aspects of the family-based migration system.

El Salvador President Salvador Sánchez Cerén said it has sent a formal letter of protest to the US Government, "also highlighting the value of Salvadorans and remembering there were compatriots who worked on the reconstruction of the Pentagon after the unfortunate terrorist attacks of 2001". "The Dems will threaten "shutdown", but what they are really doing is shutting down our military, at a time we need it most". Jeffress says Trump has courage and deserved gratitude for his leadership.

Most presidents, though, dont always tell Americans what they want to hear (even if they often do), and thats particularly the case with comments that stoke racial tension - or are openly racist.

Sen. Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.) yesterday offered a tearful apology on the Senate floor for comparing the alleged abuse of prisoners by American troops to techniques used by the Nazis, the Soviets and the Khmer Rouge, as he sought to quell a frenzy of Republican-led criticism.

"If confirmed these are shocking and shameful comments from the president of the United States", Coleville said.

Trump reportedly demanded to know why the US allows so much immigration from the aforementioned "shithole countries" in a meeting with lawmakers about immigration policy on Thursday.

"Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?"

Orange County Commissioner Victoria Siplin, who is of Haitian ancestry, said Friday that Trump is misinformed about the island nation, the first independent country founded by freed slaves.

Miami's Haitian-American community leaders planned to spend Friday remembering the hundreds of thousands of lives lost in the horrific 2010 natural disaster on the island.

On Friday morning, Trump appeared to deny he made the "shithole" comment.

The president said at the White House that "love was central" to the slain civil rights leader. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians.

"As someone from South Shithole, Trevor is deeply offended by the president's remarks", The Daily Show tweeted of its South African-born host, Trevor Noah.

There is not much more to say than what the president said himself.

Durbin added, "When the question was asked about Haitians ... he said, 'Haitians?" Dick Durbin, said in a Facebook post that a House Republican leader told off President Barack Obama during a negotiation meeting, and that GOP leaders are so disrespectful it's practically impossible to have a conversation with them. "That's where he used these vile and vulgar comments, calling the nations they come from "shitholes" ― the exact word used by the president not just once, but repeatedly".
