Two senators do backflips to protect a racist president

An enraged African Union last week issued a strong statement condemning the remark attributed to him and demanded an apology from the United States leader.

However, not all immigrant-related matters were shut down, as reporters say Trump expressed his support for more immigrants from places like Norway.

Mr. Trump reportedly singled out Haiti, El Salvador and parts of Africa as "shithole countries" during a meeting with US lawmakers about immigration Thursday, according to the Washington Post. "Do we need more Haitians?" Trump on Friday tweeted a convoluted denial about the comments, which were reported by The Washington Post and The New York Times and confirmed by Democratic Senator Dick Durbin, who attended the meeting at which they were said to have been spoken. Trump reportedly wasn't apologetic but instead blamed the media.

"I'm telling you, he did not use that word", Mr Perdue told This Week.

On Friday, Mr Durbin said: "I can not believe that in the history of the White House, in that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday".

"Your pro-life argument rings hollow if you don't have an issue with this xenophobic bigotry", tweeted pastor Earon James of Relevant Life Church in Pace, Florida.

Basically, the president spends a considerable amount of time denying the fact that he is racist.

Ivana Trump said "sometimes he says the things which are silly or he doesn't really mean them". The most important figure in the Civil Rights Movement - maybe the most important figure in African-American history - was being honoured across the country, and the President couldn't care less.

"The Government of Botswana is wondering why President Trump must use this descriptor and derogatory word when talking about countries with whom the USA has had cordial and mutually beneficial bilateral relations for so many years", the statement added. Trump is said to have asked during an Oval Office meeting about immigration on January 11.

Even the United Nations believes the comments are racist.

That message was a distinct counterpoint to words attributed to Trump by Durbin and others at a meeting last week, when the question of where immigrants come from seemed at the forefront of Trump's concerns.
