Botswana Expresses Displeasure at the "Highly Irresponsible and Racist" Comments by Trump

Anna Jefferson | 13 January, 2018, 23:42

Just last month The New York Times reported that in another White House meeting on immigration, he complained that Haitian immigrants "all have AIDS" and that once Nigerian immigrants had seen the United States, they would never "go back to their huts". Using vulgar language, Trump on Thursday questioned why the US would accept more immigrants from Africa rather than places like Norway in rejecting a bipartisan immigration deal.

"President Trump said things that were hate-filled, vile and racist", said Sen.

"Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people", said Raj Shah, the Principal Deputy White House Press Secretary without directly referring to Trump's comments.

Durbin said Trump specifically asked, "Do we need more Haitians?" before launching into a diatribe about African immigration.

Before Trump, the most prominent one was Alabama Sen.

Doctors and nurses poked and prodded Trump on Friday during his first known medical checkup since taking office, the results of which will provide the most accurate gauge yet of how a year being commander in chief has worn on the presidential frame. Some of his actions leading up to this year's federal holiday honoring King's birth seemed to be an attempt to live up to that.

Trump's remarks were remarkable even by the standards of a president who has been accused of racism by his foes and who has routinely smashed through public decorum that his modern predecessors have generally embraced.

Almost 700,000 Dreamers are at risk of losing deportation relief and work permits ― or already have ― because Trump ended the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA.

In a series of tweets on Friday, Trump also suggested that momentum toward a deal on maintaining such protection had stalled.

Progress Software (PRGS) Sees Unusually-High Trading Volume on Strong Earnings
Progress Software Corporation (NASDAQ:PRGS)'s market cap, the total dollar value of all of their outstanding shares, is 2400.17m. Amalgamated Bank acquired a new stake in Progress Software during the second quarter valued at approximately $206,000.

Trump on Friday panned the "so-called bipartisan DACA deal" as "a big step backwards".

In South Africa, the ruling African National Congress party declared "ours is not a shithole country" and described Trump as "extremely offensive". Never said "take them out".

The UN has also branded as racist, the reported remark branding Haiti, El Salvador and unspecified African nations as "shithole countries". Trump used profane language Thursday, Jan. 11, as he questioned why the USA should permit immigrants from certain countries, according to three people briefed on the conversation.

The government of Botswana summoned the U.S. ambassador of its country to express its displeasure at the comments and asked the ambassador to clarify if Botswana "is regarded as a "shithole" country" in lieu of the alleged comments from President Trump.

Trump's latest comments provided ample fodder for talk- show hosts.

Akinwumi A. Adesina - the President of African Development Bank came out emotional to comment on President Trump's statement. In reforming immigration we can not lose these American Ideals. "There is no other word one can use but 'racist'". When it happens, the media reports it, everyone reacts in shock, and before you know it, Americans across the land are having a vigorous debate on some vital social or political issue, like sexual harassment or immigration. He also blamed "both sides" after a white supremacist rally in August in Charlottesville, Virginia, turned violent and a woman protesting against the rally was killed.

In the meeting, Trump criticized the tentative bipartisan agreement drafted by Durbin, Arizona Republican Jeff Flake and four other senators.

"We have seven days and the clock is ticking".

He was referring to January 19, when funds for operating federal agencies expires.
