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

All 54 African ambassadors to the United Nations decried Donald Trump's reported remarks as "outrageous, racist, and xenophobic" on Friday, a day after U.S. media reported that Trump had referred to African states, Haiti, and El Salvador as "s***hole countries".

US President Donald Trump, who underwent his first physical examination since taking office, is in excellent health, his physician said on Saturday. CNN's White House correspondent Jim Acosta said that "it's a disturbing pattern because it seems to come back to one truth here and that is that this president deep down may just be a racist".

Although a White House spokesperson on Thursday did not deny that he used the word "shithole", Trump insisted that was "not the language used" in a confusing Twitter rant on Friday.

Trump's alleged comments were met with condemnation from the United Nations.

Trump said he didn't say it. Lindsay Graham, suggested the reported remarks were accurate: "Following comments by the president, I said my piece directly to him".

"Why do we need more Haitians?" "You would expect the president to lead in determining how you filter your thoughts, rather than to continue to say things that take a lot away from what's actually getting done".

South Africa's ruling African National Congress called Trump's comments "extremely offensive", while opposition leader Mmusi Maimane said "the hatred of Obama's roots now extends to an entire continent". "I've asked him about it a number of times, and he denied, but kept up the racist rhetoric throughout the campaign and now while he's in the White House".

Trump specifically questioned why the USA would want to admit more people from Haiti, according to Durbin.

The Sandton Chronicle reported Police Captain Granvile Meyer said: 'The EFF supporters have caused damage inside the [H&M] store. Many people accused the global chain store of racism. "The time of apologies for racism are over", he said.

Prominent Kenyan commentator Patrick Gathara said Mr Trump's words were nothing new. As for Africa, he asked why more people from "shithole countries" should be allowed into the USA, the sources said.

Trump later went on to argue: "Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country". "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!"

Trump had made headlines on Thursday by using an insensitive term "Sh**hole" for Haiti, El Salvador and unspecified African countries. "I'm saying that I'm a racist".

Farris Jr. participated in a White House event honoring his uncle on Friday and told CNN that Trump addressed the issue while in the Oval Office with Vice President Mike Pence and Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson before the ceremony.

Trump a year ago ended the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which provided protection from deportation and the ability to legally work in the country.

In 2015, there were 676,000 Haitian immigrants in the United States, up from 587,000 in 2010, accounting for less than 2 percent of the USA foreign-born population, according to the Washington-based Migration Policy Institute. He said there were "very fine people on both sides" after violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, left one counter-protester dead.
