Brooklyn Politicians Respond To Trump's "Shithole Countries" Comment

Brooklyn Politicians Respond To Trump's

The president has apparently denied the reported comments, stating on Twitter that "the language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used".

Trump's reported comments were also taken personally by Dr. Andrew Furey, an orthopedic surgeon in St. John's, N.L., and founder of Team Broken Earth, a group of medical professionals who responded to the Haitian quake in 2010 and has since returned to the country several times.

President Donald Trump blamed Democrats for stalled immigration negotiations amid backlash over vulgar comments he made in the Oval Office while meeting with lawmakers this week.

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.

After an emergency session to weigh Trump's remarks, the group said it was "concerned at the continuing and growing trend from the United States administration toward Africa and people of African descent to denigrate the continent and people of color".

"I want to take a moment to talk about Haiti, one of the places the President of the United States called a "sh**hole country", Mr Cooper started his speech live on air.

President Akufo-Addo, through his social media platforms stated that "The language of @DonaldTrump that the African continent, Haiti and El Salvador are "shithole countries" is extremely unfortunate".

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.

In November, the Trump administration rescinded deportation protection granted to almost 60,000 Haitians after the 2010 quake and told them to return home by July 2019.

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". The most "tough" thing at the scandalous meeting was the "outlandish proposal" made by the bipartisan group on DACA, he added.

Durbin also said during the meeting, he confronted the president about his use of the phrase "chain migration", which is a derogatory phrase describing the process by which legal immigrants bring extended family members into the U.S.

And other Trump backers said the president's remarks show he's aligned with a long-standing conservative push to reshape immigration policy into a merit-based system rather than one based on family ties or admitting those from countries beset by poverty. "I'm sorry but there is no other word for this but racist".

Graham said he pushed back at the president - an account that was backed up by Illinois Democratic Sen. She said "This behavior is unacceptable from the leader of our nation".

"Has America become a better country as a result?"
