Trump defends immigration stance in tweet

Trump use slur for Africa. Haiti while talking about immigrants: sources

Robin Diallo, the charge d'affaires at the U.S. Embassy, is the most senior diplomat there as the Trump administration does not have an ambassador in place.

"We can now say with 100% confidence that the president is a racist who does not share the values enshrined in our Constitution". The people were not authorized to describe the conversation and spoke on condition of anonymity.

"These are shocking and shameful comments from the President of the United States".

The agreement among senators came as more than 100 corporate CEOs urged Congress to "act immediately and pass a permanent bipartisan legislative solution to enable Dreamers who are now living, working, and contributing to our communities to continue doing so". Haiti ranks as one of the world's least-developed countries, according to the United Nations.

"The American family was born from immigrants fleeing persecution and poverty and searching for a better future", he added.

African Union spokeswoman Ebba Kalondo said: "Given the historical reality of how many Africans arrived in the United States as slaves, this statement flies in the face of all accepted behaviour and practice".

The tweets suggest that Trump is interested in a system that would only accept individuals from certain countries and backgrounds in exchange for a DACA deal - as well as a much more substantial border investment than one year of funding and technology upgrades the lawmakers had presented.

Trump's willingness to use politically incorrect language and slurs was key to his appeal to a certain section of the electorate in 2016, and those voters are unlikely to change their views over his remarks on immigrants.

Other African nations have begun speaking up.

Trump won't be so fortunate with his latest comments on Haiti.

Surrounded by African-Americans, including the nephew of the civil rights leader and Republican Ben Carson who delivered a speech, Mr Trump said: "Dr King opened the eyes and lifted the conscience of our nation". Uganda's state minister for global relations, Henry Okello Oryem, called the remarks "unfortunate and regrettable" and hoped that heads of state will reply at an African Union summit later this month.

In a separate part of the conversation about the diversity visa lottery, the source said, Trump referred to people coming from Africa as coming from "shithole countries".

"You can not dismiss entire countries and continents as "shitholes", whose entire populations, who are not white, are therefore not welcome", he added.

Officials report Iowa flu toll has risen to 14 since October
It is still too soon to say just how bad this flu season will be, but the CDC believes it could reach near epidemic levels. Nationally, flu is widespread in 46 states, including California, according to the latest reports to the U.S.

He has since claimed he did not use those specific words. The White House strenuously denied it, and the fact that the story landed on December 23 helped it escape scandal proportions.

Djenane Gourgue of the Haitian-American Chamber of Commerce of Florida said people spend "too much time commenting or watching or being pissed off at what Mr Trump says".

"It's about opening the door to humanity's worst side, about validating and encouraging racism and xenophobia that will potentially disrupt and destroy lives of many people".

Sen. Dick Durbin of IL, the only Democrat in the room, said Trump had indeed said what he was reported to have said.

His comments on North Korea also mystified Washington - since if he had spoken to Kim, it would mark the first time a sitting U.S. president had ever talked to a North Korean leader.

The US President reportedly used that term during a meeting in reference to people from Africa and Haiti, according to CNN. "Do we need more Hatians?'"

"This behavior is unacceptable from the leader of our nation", she said.

Trump's meek denial came during a series of tweets blasting an immigration deal reached by six bipartisan senators on Thursday.

The African Union says it is "frankly alarmed" by President Donald Trump's statement in which he used vulgar language to question why the USA would accept more immigrants from African countries and Haiti. "These are human beings, not commodities", he added.

President Donald Trump is insisting he "never said anything derogatory about Haitians". It's not what people expected.

Some African governments quickly found themselves in an awkward position. As top recipients of US aid, some hesitate to jeopardize it by criticizing Trump.

In South Sudan, government spokesman Ateny Wek Ateny says that "unless it was specifically said about South Sudan, we have nothing to say".

African media outlets and the continent's young, increasingly connected population were not being shy in reacting.
