African ambassadors demand apology from Trump

Special status given to about 59,000 Haitian immigrants, that has protected them from deportation following the 2010 natural disaster, will end next year following a Trump administration ruling last month. The media include The Washington Post and The New York Times newspapers and broadcaster CNN.

DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, is the law that gave residency status to people who were brought to the country illegally.

Ghana is widely seen as a stable, peaceful country in an often turbulent region, and has close ties to the United States.

In November, the Trump administration chose to end the status for immigrants from Haiti and Nicaragua.

"Many people have been surprised from what they heard from Trump, but not me", said Syverain, a member of the Haitian American Community Church in San Jose. The term suggests dirty or very poor.

U.S. President Donald Trump and Pope Francis meet at the Vatican, May 24, 2017.

Trump on Friday denied describing certain nations as "shithole countries" after triggering global outrage.

Mr Trump's comments were decried as racist by African and Haitian politicians, by the United Nations human rights office and by U.S. lawmakers from both major parties.

Trump wrote on Twitter early Friday. "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!"

In a series of Friday morning tweets, Trump said he used tough language during Thursday's meeting, but he denied using vulgarities. Never said "take them out". I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!", the President tweeted.

President Trump was evaluated by the White House physician and his exam was released to the press on Friday.

Why should we accept any less from the President of the United States of America?A country, by the way, that's played a hand in the poverty Haiti and other nations face today.

As the 16-day DreamWeek, which is now ongoing, is about respecting, listening and learning from each other, Nakpodia said he can't dismiss Trump's comment.

Earlier, the 55-nation African Union condemned the remarks, while Botswana and Senegal hauled in the U.S. ambassador to complain.

Sylvester Odion Akhaine teaches worldwide relations at the Lagos State University in Nigeria. According to a Pew poll from 2015, 89 percent of the country said they had a favorable view of America, though that number dropped to 59 percent when the same poll was conducted in 2017. "I'm sorry but there's no other word one can use but 'racist'".

Durbin explained they were in the US because they had been "the victims of crises and disasters and political upheaval".

After an emergency session to discuss Mr Trump's remarks, a group of 54 African ambassadors to the United Nations 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". But Democrats were not the only ones objected. "Immigration, 'why are we taking all these people from wherever?' Well immigration is what America is based on, and generally when they emigrate is because the place where they came for had some problems".

"Now", she said, "this is how he treats us".

She said that Trump has done excellent work in highlighting the important accomplishments of her uncle, including officially declaring his Georgia birthplace a national historic park. The president did not support their plan but the "Gang of Six" said they were planning to promote their plan to colleagues in the Senate to get more support.
