Trump's 's**thole' remark draws outrage in Africa

But Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina), whom Durbin said had voiced objection to Trump's comments during the meeting, issued a statement that did not dispute the remarks.

The Democrats are all talk and no action.

Trump was widely derided previous year after twice referring to Namibia as "Nambia".

In recent days, a group of Republican and Democratic leaders from the House and Senate have met with the stated goal of crafting an alternative to the Senate bipartisan deal.

Only this time, the ensuing blow-up is raising the risk of a government shutdown that could come as soon as the end of the coming week. Moore said that some of the people he represents in his capacity as a PR agent, such as megachurch pastor Paula White and radio host James Dobson, would not be commenting on the matter.

In full damage control, Trump and the White House trashed Wolff and his book as fiction and tabloid garbage while defending the President's mental fitness. I could tell you about my parents, how they came to this country with so many other Haitians, how they embraced the American dream and thrived, how I and so many first-generation Haitian-Americans are products of our parents' American dreams. Compared to other high-income countries, we have lower life expectancy, more chronic health problems, and higher infant mortality rates than other developed nations.

The U.S. president is hurting himself both at home and overseas with his latest comments, some Africans said. "He said those hate-filled things and he said them repeatedly", Senator Richard J. Durbin of IL, who was in the room, said Friday.

"(The President) said things which were hate-filled, vile and racist. "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!" Macky Sall, president of Senegal, tweeted on Friday that he was "shocked" by Trump's words, adding that "Africa and the black race deserve the respect and consideration of all".

The president is spending the weekend at his club in Florida.

"It (had) better go well, otherwise the stock market will not be happy", he quipped. "American business is hot again!"

Obviously, Trump was using "Norway" as shorthand for well-educated, healthy immigrants who don't defecate in public.

Echoed Republican Sen. Susan Collins of Maine: "These comments are highly inappropriate and out of bounds and could hurt efforts for a bipartisan immigration agreement". "But he has not so far on many issues demonstrated the kind of consistency of viewpoint that would actually provide that cover".

During the televised meeting, Trump spoke of wanting a "bill of love" and appeared to endorse a "clean DACA" legislation sought by Democrats. They are doing nothing to fix DACA.

In 2009 Trump's predecessor, Barack Obama, chose Ghana's capital Accra to set out his foreign policy goals for Africa in a speech in which he said he saw Africa "as a fundamental part of our interconnected world". Jeff Sessions, who became Trump's attorney general and whose former aide, Stephen Miller, is a top White House adviser to the president on immigration.

Durbin and Graham pitched Trump on the outlines of a deal they and others in a six-senator bipartisan group made to resolve the legal status of Dreamers, the young undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S.as children.

Trump has denied making the remarks, but Illinois Democratic Sen.

Robert Jeffress, pastor of First Baptist Dallas, a prominent Southern Baptist church, said that while he would not have used the same language Trump did, he agrees with the president's perspective.

When they arrived, they were surprised to see several Republican lawmakers, including immigration hardliners like Cotton and Representative Bob Goodlatte of Virginia, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee. "That is all I have to say", Kenyan entrepreneur Wangui Muraguri said in his Nairobi office.
