No One Is Coming to Save Us From Trump's Racism

Patty Aguilar | 13 January, 2018, 12:58

The Vatican newspaper on Friday branded U.S. President Donald Trump's reported comments about African countries and Haiti as "particularly harsh and offensive".

Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury: Inside Donald Trump's White House" said the president prefers to be in bed by 6:30 p.m. with a cheeseburger in hand.

In a meeting last fall, the president apparently said that a female intelligence expert should be assisting the U.S.in its negotiations with North Korea purely because of her Korean heritage, NBC News reported.

The reference to Norway may have been prompted by Prime Minister Erna Solberg who visited the White House on Wednesday when the president praised Norway for running a trade deficit with the United States and for buying US military equipment.

Trump, who grew up in a Presbyterian family, shot back saying it was "disgraceful" for the pope to question his faith. Plus, the White House has yet to officially deny the reports in a statement - and Hillary Clinton has plenty to say about it.

"I want to take a moment to talk about Haiti, one of the places the President of the United States called a "sh**hole country", Mr Cooper started his speech live on air.

Cardinal Seán O'Malley wrote in a blog post on Friday that he has ministered to "people from many lands who came to the United States to share their lives, their culture and their faith with American society", an experience he said has been "filled with a spirit which is so different from the tenor and language of much of the debate about immigration in our country today".

"I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians", he said on Twitter, adding that Democrats had made the accusations up.

MUDSLIDES: Number of missing people changes constantly
Seven thousand people have been ordered to evacuate while over 23,000 others have been asked to leave voluntarily. The Santa Barbara County Sheriff Office did not immediately comment.

The doctor who oversaw 71-year-old President Trump's first formal physical Friday said the commander-in-chief is in "excellent health".

Trump's contemptuous description of an entire continent startled lawmakers in the meeting and immediately revived charges that the president is racist.

"We are the ones who defeated slavery and freed ourselves in 1804", Aubry said, remarking that until the 1960s black people in the United States were subject to legal segregation from whites. Never said "take them out". She said "It's incomprehensible that these words came out of the mouth of the president of the United States of America, a country that was founded on being free from discrimination and treating people fairly and having people come here, the land of the free".

On Thursday, Haitian President Jovenel Moise demanded a meeting with the top U.S. diplomat in the country, Charge d'Affaires Robin Diallo, according to State Department officials. While some congressional Republicans from NY unequivocally criticized Trump, others have taken his vague semi-denials at face value.

Trump later added, "Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country. Why don't we get more people from Norway?".

Independent president candidate and BYU graduate Evan McMullin harshly criticized Trump on Twitter. "I think we held our own as best we could".

"Apart from the vocabulary attributed to him, President Trump is right on target in his sentiment", Jeffress said in a statement, first released to the Christian Broadcasting Network and later shared with FOX4.

Durbin said "shitholes" was "the exact word used by the president not just once but repeatedly".
