Ryan: Reported '****hole' comment by Trump 'very unfortunate, unhelpful'

Dreamers

After President Donald Trump reportedly referred to African countries that benefit from the US visa lottery program as "shitholes", House Speaker Paul Ryan lightly rebuked the president on Friday, calling the comments "very unfortunate" and "unhelpful". "I thought of my own family".

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), said the president's comments reminded him of stories relayed by relatives about discrimination his Irish ancestors faced upon arriving in America.

Speaker Ryan on Pres. Trump comments: "First thing that came to my mind was very unfortunate, unhelpful".

"You're going to have to find bipartisan consensus to fix these thorny, long-term problems, and we don't have that right now", he continued. "My family, like a whole lot of people came from Ireland on what they called "coffin ships" and worked the railroads", Ryan said.

Rep. Ryan, who is the senior-most Republican to address Trump's remarks, added that his hometown of Janesville, Wisconsin has a number of African immigrants who are "great citizens".

Numerous media reports and Democratic Sen.

Almost 800,000 people who came to the United States illegally as children were protected under the Obama administration, but Trump will scrap the so-called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program on March 5 unless Congress legislates a fix.

According to the Washington Post, Trump countries such as Haiti, El Salvador, as well as Africa as "shithole countries".

Dick Durbin have said Trump questioned in the Thursday meeting why the U.S. should accept immigrants from "shithole countries", referring to Haiti, El Salvador, and African nations.

Trump on Friday, "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used". It is not true. "He said these hate-filled things, and he said them repeatedly". David Perdue, several other members in Congress have renounced President Trump's comments.
