'Shithole' epithet turned immigration debate into new Trump drama

Trump denies crude slur against migrant countries

The president was referring to African countries and Haiti, and then suggested the U.S. should welcome immigrants from places like Norway, whose prime minister met with Trump on Wednesday.

He said on Twitter on Friday that his language during the meeting was "tough" but insisted: "This was not the language used".

MA state Sen. Linda Dorcena Forry called the president's words racist and "an affront to decency and to history". African nations and El Salvador -also said to have been targeted in Trump's comments on immigration - have had plenty to say.

"The expressions immediately gave rise to controversy and indignation".

The United Nations human rights office said it had no doubt Trump's remarks were "racist", while the Vatican newspaper branded them as "particularly harsh and offensive".

He denied suggestions in a report in the Washington Post that he had said "take them out", in reference to Haitians.

New York's Haitian community honored the eighth anniversary of the quake that devastated their country Friday - and denounced President Trump's remark that the island nation was "a shithole".

In a statement, Shah said the President will only accept an immigration deal that adequately addresses the visa lottery system and chain migration - two programs that hurt American economy and allow terrorists into the country. The people willing to do that are the people we want and need. "I want to stop the massive inflow of drugs".

Durbin said that despite Trump's rejection of the bipartisan deal he would introduce it as legislation next week and work on getting Democratic and Republican support for passage.

The lawmakers had hoped he would back the accord, an agreement among six senators evenly split among Republicans and Democrats, ending a bitter dispute over protecting the "Dreamers".

Those questions will likely be answered by next week, when the White House says the results of the exam will be released.

The alleged remarks were said to have also been made in reference to Haiti and El Salvador.

But conclusions about Mr Trump's mental acuity were not expected.

Adding "Botswana has accepted U.S. citizens within her border over the years and countries to host United States guests and senior government officials including a Congressional delegation that will come to Botswana at the end of this month".

Trump suggested the United States should instead welcome immigrants from places like Norway, whose prime minister met with Trump on Wednesday.

The NAACP president predicted Trump's remarks will help motivate African-American voters in the 2018 midterm elections, saying the comments are "the language of the '50s and '60s, it is the language of a Ross Barnett and a George Wallace". He ignored reporters who shouted questions about his remarks.

The Republican president's comments were decried as racist by African and Haitian politicians, by the United Nations human rights office and by U.S. lawmakers from both major parties.

Congressional Black Caucus Chair Cedric Richmond and House Judiciary top Democrat Jerrold Nadler said they would seek to introduce a censure resolution against Trump next week.

Some Republicans, notably Rep. Mia Love (R-UT), who's of Haitian descent, have called out the president for the comments and have requested an apology.
