Cuba condemns Trump's

The African Union, an organization comprised of all 55 African nations, blasted President Donald Trump's comments that the continent contained "shithole countries."

The organisation representing African countries has demanded that US President Donald Trump apologise after he reportedly called nations on the continent "shitholes".

In a statement on Facebook, Clinton - who worked in Haiti following the devastating 2010 quake - said the Caribbean nation's struggles do "not make them the country the president described". "Why do we want all these people from shithole countries?".

He also took issue with Trumps reported suggestion that the United States should welcome immigrants from places like Norway, whose population is overwhelmingly white, instead of from African countries and Haiti.

The ANC, Duarte said, will not deign to make comments as derogatory as Trump's to describe the United States.

The White House did not initially deny the remark on Thursday, but Trump suggested in a tweet Friday that the "shithole" comment was "not the language used".

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or DACA is an Obama-era protection for those who arrived in the country illegally when they were children. A federal judge ruled on 9 January 2018 that the Trump administration must accept renewal applications from enrollees. He called a proposal made at the immigration meeting "a big setback for DACA".

On Friday morning, Trump tweeted that he used "tough" language at the meeting, but not the reported vulgarity. According to a Pew poll from 2015, 89 percent of the country said they had a favorable view of America, though that number dropped to 59 percent when the same poll was conducted in 2017. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!", the President tweeted.

Trump has denied making the remarks, but Illinois Democratic Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina), who also objected to them. He pointed to Trump's 2015 comments on Mexican immigrants, who Trump said are "rapists" and bringing drugs and crimes to the U.S.

"If that comment is accurate, the comment is incredibly disappointing", Scott told the newspaper.

When asked the implications of having a "racially ignorant" man as POTUS, Farris Jr., obviously mincing words, an ability the president is without, responded with: "it means we have him until 2020 or until something else happens".
