Trump backtracks again after first denying making 'shithole' comments

Donald Trump defends self after comments says'I am not a racist President Donald Trump listens during a meeting in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington

President Trump is judging immigrants by where they come from, and it is hard not to see this as a question of ethnicity.

"He said: 'Put me down for wanting more Europeans to come to this country".

Chicago has a Haitian-American population estimated at 50,000. Durbin said Trump repeatedly referred to African countries as "shitholes".

"Although it has been eight years, the impacts of the natural disaster are ever present". He wondered why we instead can't bring in immigrants from a place like Norway, presumably having that country on his mind after the visit this week by the country's prime minister. We are a country that created people like my father, who drove a taxicab in Brooklyn, sometimes 16 hours a day, so that my three brothers (two teachers and an IT specialist) and I could have a better life.

All 54 African ambassadors to the United Nations issued an extraordinary statement saying they were concerned about the "continuing and growing trend from the U.S. administration towards Africa and people of African descent to denigrate the continent and people of color".

"There is no other word one can use but "racist"..." "We are not an America of hate".

Trump later took out a full-page ad urging the death penalty for black youth who were charged, then cleared, of raping a white Central Park jogger.

The Haitian government said in a statement "these insulting and reprehensible statements in no way reflect the virtues of wisdom, restraint and discernment that must be cultivated by any high political authority", according to the Associated Press, adding that the comment "reflects a totally erroneous and racist view of the Haitian community and its contribution to the United States". It is insulting to the leaders of those countries, for no good reason.

"The African Union Mission wishes to express its infuriation, disappointment and outrage over the unfortunate comment made by Mr. Donald Trump, President of the United States of America, which remarks dishonor the celebrated American creed and respect for diversity and human dignity", the African Union mission to the United States said in a blistering statement.

How does VAR work? The south coast side were not the only Premier League club left regretting the absence of a VAR on Saturday. He confessed: " Southampton will feel like it's a loss". 'If VAR comes in we probably wouldn't get that.

Cable News Weighs "Racist" Label for Trump
Trump disputed the reports in a tweet Friday morning , although he did not directly deny using the word. Angus King, an independent who caucuses with Democrats, spoke out about the news Thursday.

"I kept thinking, 'Is this really happening?'" said Normil, who arrived in the US six years ago to reunite with her parents.

A year after his clash with Trump, Lewis rejected Renacci's defense of Trump's comments on race and immigration as all right because he's only saying what many people are thinking.

"He continued: "....countries which are doing badly.

Trump tweeted Friday morning: "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used".

But Sen. Dick Durbin, the only Democrat in the room, disputed the president's account. Tom Cotton of Arkansas and David Perdue of Georgia, issued a joint statement, saying they did "not recall the president saying those comments specifically". "It is not true".

"I would like to believe that the president's intentions are not to be divisive, but much of what he says seems or feels to be divisive", King III told AP in an interview.

All African countries at the United Nations unanimously demanded on Friday that US President Donald Trump retract and apologise for his reported denunciation of immigration from "shithole" nations.

The remarks - which Trump denied amid wide condemnation in the United States and overseas - came during an Oval Office meeting with lawmakers.

A censured president can remain in office-unlike impeachment, or the invocation of the 25th Amendment, both of which would remove the president from the White House and allow the vice president to step in.
