Politicians respond to Trump's alleged comment about Haiti

Patty Aguilar | 13 January, 2018, 10:26

The controversy flared just two months before the United States, Canada and Mexico must formally submit their joint bid to stage the 2026 World Cup to world governing body Federation Internationale de Football Association on March 16.

It's that his comment was racist at its core. It is about Trump's vicious policies that treat immigrants and people of color as less than human. "You can not dismiss entire countries and continents as "shitholes", whose entire populations, who are not white, are therefore not welcome".

"It's very subjective so there's no rhyme or reason behind it", Kang said. "Trump dares to speak - but it's also the though process of many, many, many other people in the world".

The sources spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to publicly describe the conversation.

"Why are we having all these people from s--hole countries come here?" the president allegedly said.

Amid a global furore over his reported remarks about "shithole countries" and immigration, Donald Trump faced further controversy on Friday when it was reported that he referred to an intelligence analyst presenting information to him in the Oval Office as a "pretty Korean lady" and suggested she should be part of negotiations with North Korea.

But neither the United States president nor the White House disputed the most controversial of his remarks in which he used the word "shithole" to describe African nations and said he would prefer immigrants from countries like Norway instead. "Do we need more Haitians?'" "He said these hateful things and he said them repeatedly".

Trump's backers quickly pointed to the fact that Barack Obama had confessed to cursing too much.

And I'm afraid that a Trump America is going to lead America to be weaker and less respected. "Instead, we're subjected to Trump's ignorant, racist views of anyone who doesn't look like him".

"The American people will ultimately judge us on the outcome we achieve, not the process which led to it".

Several commentators compared Mr Trump's depiction of immigrants from some countries to the treatment that Irish people received in previous times, including MSNBC news presenter Lawrence O'Donnell.

U.S. Rep. Robert Pittenger, a Republican from Charlotte, went on WBT Friday morning to defend Trump's remarks and did so with incredibly twisted logic. Jimmy Kimmel expressed his disbelief over Trump's statements saying it was "unfathomable" it is that he's running our country. He added: "He's addressing the reality of the despots who run these countries".

"This is not only hurtful, I think, to people of African origin in the United States, but certainly to African citizens", she said.

Precisely. That is a reason to consider their plight, not put a blanket ban on them. The report claimed Trump called those turmoil-ridden nations a "shithole".

Durbin is the only person in the meeting who has spoken at length about what transpired in the Oval Office.

Dick Durbin says he had high hopes of securing President Trump's approval of a bipartisan plan for "Dreamers" when he and South Carolina Republican Sen. Durbin also said that Sen. Lindsey Graham challenged those comments, which Durbin called an act of courage.
