What Republicans Really Think When Trump Talks About 'Shithole' Countries

Lora Ball | 13 January, 2018, 10:34

The tweet from Clinton, who fought bitterly with Trump in the 2016 presidential race, came a day after reports surfaced that Trump demanded to know why the USA admits so many immigrants from "shithole countries", like Haiti, El Salvador and several in Africa.

Clinton weighed in Friday afternoon, after Trump had been pummeled in the media for hours over having reportedly inveighed during an Oval Office meeting against immigrants from "s***hole countries" coming into the United States.

But Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of SC, whom Durbin said had voiced objection to Trump's comments during the meeting, issued a statement that did not dispute the remarks.

Independent president candidate and BYU graduate Evan McMullin harshly criticized Trump on Twitter. It is a handsome story of America, and that is a great story and that is the story we have today and that is a story we had yesterday and that is what makes this country so exceptional and unique in the first place.

"We would not deign to make comments as derogatory as that about any country that has any kind of socio-economic or other difficulties", Duarte said, adding that much like their African counterparts, millions of United States citizens were affected by problems such as unemployment.

Activists marched from the Toussaint L'Ouverture Monument to the Little Haiti Cultural Center waving signs that said "President Trump is a racist!", "Respect Haiti", and "We will not forget".

That “move the needle” argument - that Trumps base would stand by him - was also put forward by other Trump sympathizers in the immediate aftermath of the initial reports of Trumps comments.

So who's being protected by all this false timorousness - besides the person who said it?

Trump's insults - along with his rejection of the bipartisan immigration deal that six senators had drafted - also threatened to further complicate efforts to extend protections for hundreds of thousands of young immigrants, many of whom were brought to this country as children and now are here illegally.

He said Trump used the most vulgar term "more than once".

"Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people", spokesman Raj Shah said in a statement issued after The Washington Post first reported Trump's remarks.

Ex-Tide star Foster arrested on marijuana charge
The former Alabama product played in 10 games a year ago with San Francisco, still finishing second on the team with 59 tackles. Foster was charged with second-degree marijuana possession in Tuscaloosa , home of his alma mater, the University of Alabama.

South Africa's ruling African National Congress called Trump's comments "extremely offensive", while opposition leader Mmusi Maimane said "the hatred of Obama's roots now extends to an entire continent". It's a middle finger to s--hole countries, but more to the point, it's a statement that we don't want the people from them.

The Trump administration announced late previous year that it would end a temporary residency permit program that allowed almost 60,000 citizens from Haiti to live and work in the United States following a devastating 2010 natural disaster.

Durbin said Friday that he had hoped for White House approval of the bipartisan deal.

Trump was referring to African countries and Haiti, US newspapers reported.

The comment "truly flies in the face of accepted behaviour and practice", said Ebba Kalondo, spokeswoman for AU chief Moussa Faki.

When I mentioned that fact to him, he said, "Haitians, do we need more Haitians?"

"No! I gotta go", he told a Post reporter as he left his Capitol Hill office and jumped into an SUV that sped away.

Motorcycle taxi driver Jean-Paul Maxon said he was angry that the president seemed to be unaware of Haiti's proud history as the first independent country founded by freed slaves. "If they don't, for goodness' sake, give us a vote".

The sources said the president made the remark in a meeting as Sen.

MSNBC's Rachel Maddow called him "an openly racist president".

Ignoring shouted questions about the mounting firestorm over race, the president paid tribute during a ceremony to the reverend's "peaceful crusade for justice and equality".
