Did Botswana Condemn Trump's Alleged 'Shithole' Slur Toward African Countries?

All of Washington, D.C., and the media were buzzing Friday after a Washington Post story alleged that Trump wondered aloud during a bipartisan meeting why the United States was expected to take so many refugees from "s**hole nations" such as El Salvador, Haiti, and some African nations. "I am committed to ensuring DREAMers are protected and I will welcome everyone to the table who wants to get this done", Hoyer said, referring to a sub-group of undocumented people who were brought to the United States while they were children.

The document stressed that Cuba joins the strong rejection that these statements have arouse around the world, and expresses its most heartfelt solidarity with all the offended countries.

The state's top nation as a source of immigration is India.

Trump earned national political prominence by promoting the falsehood that Barack Obama, America's first African-American president, was not born in the United States.

Immigration is one of the issues that Pope Francis, who has strongly defended the rights of developing countries, and Trump have clashed over.

Trump later denied using the vulgar phrase, but said he used "tough" language at the meeting. The president said he has a wonderful relationship with Haitians and suggested future meetings probably should be recorded.

Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin, who was in the meeting, said Trump did use the words, which Durbin called "hate-filled, vile and racist". Trump allegedly said after being presented with a proposal to restore protections for immigrants from the countries in question. More than 50,000 Haitian TPS recipients live in South Florida, which is home to the largest concentration of Haitians in the nation. "So I don't believe in him", Brhe told ABC11.

"Florida GOP Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen said Trump's comments were "completely unacceptable", telling WPLG-TV in Miami that "if that's not racism, I don't know how you can define it".

"In addition, the president singled out Haiti, telling lawmakers that immigrants from that country must be left out of any deal, these people said". The huge damage that the 7.0-magnitude quake caused to the island's infrastructure and economy led to the designation for Haitians of a USA immigration protection known as Temporary Protected Status. No friend of Washington, leftist President Nicolas Maduro denounced what he called "supremacist, racist, fascist expressions".

Trump has called himself the "least racist person that you've ever met". "It doesn't say, depending on what language they speak or depending on the country that they come from".

Trump's reported comments, made during closed-door White House talks on an immigration deal on Thursday, were a reaction to a plan drafted by a bipartisan group of senators to protect juvenile immigrants from deportation and make other changes to immigration laws and border security.
