'Shithole' countries latest racially charged comment by Trump

Lora Ball | 13 January, 2018, 12:44

Day event in the Roosevelt Room, a reporter directly asked Trump to face up to his comments, the Hill reported.

"When Trump uttered his vulgar attacks yesterday against Haitians and Africans, he exposed the white supremacy at the core of USA policy towards Haiti", the statement said.

On Thursday, Trump was meeting lawmakers to discuss a proposal for an immigration plan when he reportedly grew agitated as the conversation turned to citizens of Haiti and El Salvador, and immigrants from the African continent.

But Democratic Senator Dick Durbin who was reportedly at the meeting said the United States president used "shitholes" in the context of African countries.

The US president has come under attack after he was reported to have called some nations "shitholes" in a White House remark. Many advocates said the comments shed light on why the Trump administration last fall stripped Haitians of Temporary Protected Status - specialized protection granted to people from countries experiencing significant turmoil - in which it would be unsafe for its citizens to return.

Mr Trump was said to have told them that instead of granting temporary residency to citizens of countries hit by natural disasters, war or epidemics, the USA should instead be taking in migrants from countries like Norway. Senator Dick Durbin said Friday he witnessed what happened at a meeting with the president regarding a bipartisan compromise on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and confirmed the president used that language repeatedly. I certainly don't use that language.

Adding that he'll see "what happens", the president noted that they "have no collusion " to make the case that it won't be necessary.

"It was a heartbreaking moment", Durbin said. "This is particularly surprising as the United States of America remains a global example of how migration gave birth to a nation built on strong values of diversity and opportunity".

The White House has not denied his use of racially charged rhetoric.

U.S. Senator James Lankford, of Oklahoma, is speaking out about President Donald Trump's alleged vulgar comment.

First, he insisted his senseless wall be part of an immigration deal and now Trump is spouting vile profanities about Haitian and African immigrants from the Oval Office.

The president tweeted later on Friday: "Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country".

Graham has not yet publicly commented on what the president said or on Durbin's remarks. We have worked on these different mission trips, we love the people from all countries.
