Durbin Says Graham Confronted Trump on 'Shithole' Comments with 'Extraordinary Political Courage'

Withdraw and Apologize 54 African Countries Ask US President Trump Over 'Shithole' Slur

Dick Durbin of IL confirmed Friday that President Donald Trump made vulgar comments when questioning why the us would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "s--hole countries" in Africa rather than places like Norway. "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!".

"The White House did not deny Thursday that Trump used the vulgarity", according to the Post.

Members of Congress who were in the meeting when President Donald Trump referred to Haiti and African nations as "shithole countries" have different memories of what happened.

And Haitian ambassador Paul Altidor told MSNBC that Haiti believes Trump was "either misinformed or miseducated about Haiti and its people."

"Why do we need more Haitians, take them out", he said, citing sources. Instead, the deputy press secretary issued a statement arguing, "Trump will always fight for the American people".

Trump said he did not say "anything derogatory" about Haitians and appeared to deny calling any countries "shitholes", as was reported, generating a worldwide backlash.

Mr Trump continued: "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians".

US President Donald Trump speaks during a meeting on prison reform in the Roosevelt Room of the White House in Washington, DC, yesterday.

Two Republican Senators claim to have not heard President Trump saying that certain African and Latin American nations are "shithole" countries. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!" he added. Center for Nonviolent Social Change, said he met privately in the Oval Office with Trump and Dr.

Durbin's comments came the day after his bipartisan group of immigration negotiators found an agreement to protect hundreds of thousands of recipients of the expiring Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

The U.S. embassy in Haiti, in a Twitter post on Friday, said "we remember and honor the many lives lost 8 years ago in Haiti", in reference to the quake. Tom Cotton of Arkansas and David Perdue of Georgia, said in statement Friday that "we do not recall the president saying these comments specifically". Yet Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL), who was involved in the meeting, confirmed that Trump did indeed make those comments. Durbin said the president, "said things which were hurtful, vile, and racist".

Earlier in the day, the Office of UN Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) said the USA president's reported remarks that immigrants were coming from "shithole countries" were racist.

"Given the historical reality of how many Africans arrived in the United States as slaves, this statement flies in the face of all accepted behaviour and practice", said a spokesperson from The African Union.
