Trump tweets about DACA amid controversy over vulgarity

Trump language on Africa unacceptable, racist, says Ghana 'As someone from South Sh*thole, I'm offended, Mr. President'

In an earlier tweet on Friday, Mr. Trump said, "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used". The White House did not deny the comment.

Trump's comments were allegedly made on Thursday at a White House meeting with lawmakers on immigration reform.

At their Oval Office meeting, two sources said, Trump questioned the value of taking immigrants from Haiti and African nations, and referred to them as "shithole countries".

It also underlined the strong historical ties between the two countries and urged the U.S. to respect the dignity of its "noble and courageous" people. In addition to Ghana, the government of Botswana said Trump's language is "reprehensible and racist", and said it has summoned the us ambassador to clarify what he meant. President Jovenel Moise's government issued a strongly worded statement denouncing what it called a "racist" view of Haitian immigrants and people from African countries.

When it came to talk of extending protections for Haitians, the USA president said: "We don't need more Haitians".

Steven Forester, of the Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti, blasted the president's decision to sunset TPS as racist and said the reported comments prove it.

American news media reported on Thursday that Trump used the term at talks on a USA immigration policy known as DACA.

I know everybody says, 'Well, this happens to this team, and they've been to three straight Finals.' But that's not acceptable. After the game, James apparently was not interested in diagnosing the Cavs' problems. "We need Serge", the coach said.

Sen. Dick Durbin, the lone Democrat in the meeting, confirmed the comments Friday morning, calling the words "hate filled, vile and racist".

Trump later added, "Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country".

"I find President Trump's reported comments about Haiti, El Salvador and African countries unacceptable and inaccurate", Siplin said.

The US leader made the alleged remark in a Thursday meeting on immigration.

According to them, Trump's statement was "racist" and demanded that the American President render an apology to the labelled countries.

Then, Durbin said that the president began to describe immigration from Africa that would be protected under the bipartisan proposal. The world is witnessing a new low today with this #S-tholeNations remark! totally unacceptable! uncalled for moreover it shows a lack a respect and IGNORANCE never seen before in the recent history of the USA by any President!

The same goes for our nation's health care system, where care seems to become less affordable with each passing year despite a law that promised better.
