Africa startled by Trump's sudden and vulgar attention

Trump questioned why the USA should accept more immigrants from Haiti and Africa over places like Norway. "I'm more excluded because the rhetoric itself is racist and at some point, many times, he denied that he is not a racist".

AU Spokeswoman Ebba Kalondo pointed out the U.S. role in the Atlantic slave trade as an example of how African countries, Trump described in contemptuous terms, were exploited in a shameful manner.

Yet there's no doubt that the episode has added new fuel to the charges of racism that have dogged Trump for years, since long before he assumed the presidency. His crusade against the "Central Park Five" included calling for the death penalty.

While Trump and his supports believe that he speaks for the "forgotten men and women" of America, many in his hometown are fuming.

Many evangelical leaders who defended him in the past would not comment on Trump's remarks to a group of senators. People act surprised now when he says things, but how could you?

Then its most prominent supporter told members of Congress in the Oval Office this week that the US needs fewer immigrants from Haiti and Africa and more from places like Norway.

Many of Nixon's comments only came to light years later, following the release of tapes from his White House years.

"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", AU spokeswoman Ebba Kalondo said to the Associated Press.

The U.S. president is only hurting himself both at home and overseas, some Africans said.

"I spoke with President Jovenel Moise about the issue, and, of course, the president condemns such language and he is shocked", Altidor remarked, adding that the U.S. charge d'affaires in Haiti had been summoned to explain the United States president's remarks.

President Donald Trump is "in excellent health", White House doctor Ronny Jackson said Friday after the president's first full physical exam in office. The Trump administration is ending those protections for people from Haiti, El Salvador and Nicaragua, and suggested it will do the same for Hondurans. Two immigration hard-liners, Republican Sens.

Mr. Mahama condemned the reported comments and urged the African Union to take action following these developments. Another GOP attendee, South Carolina Sen.

The New York Times said in an editorial that the comments had shown up as "a charade" indications that Trump would soften his hardline stance on immigration.

Hard-line immigration activists, who prefer the term "restrictionists", argue that the system they espouse - fewer overall migrants, an end to the family-based system that favors relatives of people already legally in the USA and a greater emphasis on picking immigrants with skills - is not racially motivated. Paris Dennard, a senior director of strategic communications at the Thurgood Marshall College Fund, said Trump "understands this community".

But the participants pointedly did not address Trump's vulgar comments. He did not specifically deny using the word "shithole". "I don't get that", said No. 2 Senate Republican John Cornyn of Texas.

Botswana summoned the USA ambassador to the country to "clarify if Botswana is regarded as a "shithole" country", according to a foreign ministry statement which called Trump's comments "irresponsible, reprehensible and racist".

Warnock said it's hypocritical for Trump to sign a proclamation honoring King, given his comments. But before Donald Trump talks trash about the rest of the world, he might want to look a little closer to home-and a little closer at how his own policies are exacerbating America's problems.
