Rwanda Saddened by President Trump 'Racist' Comments

Rwanda Saddened by President Trump 'Racist' Comments

Trump reportedly used the word "s**thole" to describe Haiti and El Salvador, as also African countries while discussing immigration issues with U.S. lawmakers on Thursday. "The president will always reject temporary, weak and unsafe stopgap measures that threaten the lives of hardworking Americans, and undercut immigrants who seek a better life in the United States through a legal pathway".

"I am shocked by President Trump's comments on Haiti and Africa", Senegal's President Macky Sall wrote on Twitter.

Trump said Durbin and Graham - two seasoned lawmakers - should come to the White House for a meeting at noon.

Trump's remarks had an obvious racial component - and came days before the nation celebrates the birth of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on Monday.

El Salvador slammed them as "deplorable".

Democratic Sen. Richard Durbin of IL on Friday said Trump had indeed made the comments about 's***hole countries'.

Duncan, R-3rd District and chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee's Subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere, has long supported the island nation's recovery from a devastating 2010 quake, but has also called for more transparency in USA aid money sent to the country. Yes, it all started with Durbin. He has emerged as a leader in negotiations over how to codify the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, a 2012 executive order from President Barack Obama protecting roughly 800,000 immigrants from deportation who were brought to the country illegally by their parents as young children. "Our bipartisan group continues to build support for the only deal in town", Durbin said in a statement on Friday.

The White House had made clear that Trump's examination would not include a psychiatric exam. Results of past presidential physicals have included basic data like weight, blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

Durbin, of IL, somberly countered Trump's version of events.

He's also one of the lead Democratic negotiators on immigration.

Immigration activists and even members of Congress have cautioned the Trump administration against sending Haitian immigrants back.

The World Bank on Friday tweeted that sub-Saharan Africa's economic growth this year is forecast at 3.2 percent.

Ironically, he was attending Chicago's 32nd annual Interfaith breakfast commemorating the life of the slain civil rights leader.

Others pointed out that when Norwegians were emigrating to the USA 100 years ago, it was to escape the war and poverty that many modern immigrants and refugees face.

He noted that what alarms him more than the lack of forethought is Trump's historic ignorance.

Underscoring the hurdles facing the effort, other Republicans undercut the significance of the deal the half-dozen senators hoped to sell to Trump.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, a South Carolina Republican, was also part of the Oval Office sitdown.

"We arrived at noon to make our presentation to the president".

"The only silver lining, and this is a small silver lining, is that we got to hear Wolf Blitzer say this all day", Kimmel joked, as a reel played of CNN host Wolf Blitzer repeatedly saying "s-hole", with the obscene word replaced by just the letter s. Plus Sens. David Perdue R-Ga. and Tom Cotton R-Ark.

While others said Mr Trump did not perhaps know what he was letting himself in for by welcoming more Norwegians as the country's egalitarian politics clashes with his "winner takes all" brand of nationalism.

Trump said he didn't say it.
