President Donald Trump spent Thursday night making a flurry of phone calls to friends and advisers - denying he was racist but defending his disparaging comments about Haitians and African countries - as something many people think, but won't say.

When asked how his uncle would have responded to Trump's comments on Thursday, Farris Jr. said that he would have urged Trump "not to refer to African countries like that".

African Union ambassadors to the United Nations demanded an apology from U.S. President Donald Trump for his "racist remark" on the people of Africa.

After the accusations against Trump spread the president used his Twitter megaphone to deny the accusations while also suggesting that talks surrounding a legislative fix to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals were falling apart.

"Sir, they're not shithole countries". The comment was "clearly" racist, said Ebba Kalondo, spokeswoman for AU chief Moussa Faki.

"All of you who over the last few years have uttered that exhausted, lazy, uninformed, uneducated response of calling me and others who point out racist behavior "racists, ' you know what you can go do?"

Trump's choice of words also revealed a deeper and more substantive truth about how the president views - and misunderstands - America's unique relationship with its immigrants. Jessie Duarte of South Africa's ruling ANC said on Friday: "Ours is not a s***hole country and neither is Haiti or any other country in distress". It gave us a plotline that told us as much about the people around its protagonist as the protagonist himself: a disastrous whirlwind on immigration, one of the show's signature issues.

Lt. Gov. Newsom Calls on President Trump to Resign Over 'Shithole' Comment
James Hunder, the president of the Liberian Organization of the Piedmont, said he was surprised that Trump made the vulgar remark. He's said to have questioned why the United States would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "s--hole countries" in Africa.

"The President is in excellent health", said Jackson after he conducted the first physical exam of the 45th President of the United States.

Having failed to hold Mr. Trump accountable for his bigotry, Americans are now stuck with him as President - and the priority should not be policing his profanity, but protecting the rights of non-white and non-Christian Americans. "He's president of the United States".

The UN has also branded as racist, the reported remark branding Haiti, El Salvador and unspecified African nations as "shithole countries". Never said "take them out". He wants more funding for the wall, which is symbolic, yes, but that's exactly the point: As Frank Sharry of America's Voice puts it to me, the wall is a "middle finger to Latin America", a statement that "we don't want your kind".

Florida GOP Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen said Trump's comments were "completely unacceptable", telling WPLG-TV in Miami that "if that's not racism, I don't know how you can define it".

"It is thanks to our African leaders that we are insulted that way", she said.

Donald Trump ragging on immigrants from "sh*hole countries" in a January 11 Oval Office meeting has gotten him into some deep. well, sh*t.

Trump's contemptuous blanket description of African countries startled lawmakers in the meeting and immediately revived charges that the president is racist.
