Trump's "Shithole Countries" Line Makes Bipartisanship Even More Elusive

Don Lemon

In a tweet, Clinton denounced Trump's remarks, which were made in a private meeting with lawmakers on Thursday, saying that Friday should be a day of remembrance for the 2010 quake in Haiti.

The statement, issued late Friday after the African ambassadors held an emergency meeting, comes amid an global outcry over Trump reportedly saying he'd rather have more immigrants from Norway and fewer from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa. We are certainly not a "shithole country".

Fallout from the president's racist comments on immigration continued early Saturday, as the President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo, condemned Donald Trump in a tweet.

El Salvador's government has formally protested President Donald Trump's alleged remarks about immigrants from "s***hole countries" and demanded Washington's respect for its "noble and courageous people".

"We do not recall the President saying these comments specifically but what he did call out was the imbalance in our current immigration system, which does not protect American workers and our national interest".

Just before Christmas, a New York Times report emerged alleging that Trump had said people from Haiti "all have AIDS", that Nigerians all live in huts and that Afghanistan is full of terrorists.

In November, the Trump administration rescinded deportation protection granted to almost 60,000 Haitians after the 2010 natural disaster and told them to return home by July 2019. "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!" he said in one of the tweets.

However Trump later insisted that he "never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country". Dick Durbin, D-Ill., who was in the room with the president, told reporters that the comments were accurate.

Mr Trump on Friday tweeted that his language he used at the private meeting with lawmakers to discuss immigration legislation had been "tough".

Mr. Trump has denied using that language but others present say he did.

"The Haitian government condemns in the strongest terms these abhorrent and obnoxious remarks which, if proven, reflect a totally erroneous and racist view of the Haitian community and its contribution to the United States", it said.

Graham said he pushed back at the president - an account that was backed up by Illinois Democratic Sen. These are folks who bring a different aspect to temporary protected status than Central American countries.
