Trump's 'shithole' comments stirred anger and condemnation, but not from everyone

Sen. Durbin on Trump comments.

Trump tweeted Friday morning: "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used". Friday at the White House where, reporters shouted questions at home, including CNN's April D. Ryan, who asked the president outright, "Are you a racist?". 'The President and all those attending the meeting know what I said and how I feel.

"For the first representative of the United States of America to speak in such a manner is quite troubling and offensive", Jean said in the statement.

Ah, so it's not that Trump is opposed to all immigration, just immigration from people who aren't white.

Haiti said it was shocked by Trump's reported remarks on Thursday and summoned the top United States diplomat in the country, asking for an apology if the vulgar term had been used.

"Kenya is one of the fastest growing countries in Africa", he said. We have Haitians taking care of the American elderly.

Trump raised eyebrows and prompted ire even from other Republicans in June 2016 when he said a federal judge who was presiding over a Trump University lawsuit had an "inherent conflict of interest" because the judge's family was "of Mexican heritage".

In Friday's Facebook post, Clinton said the USA should support Haiti and its people and "help them reach their full potential".

Independent president candidate and BYU graduate Evan McMullin harshly criticized Trump on Twitter. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., second from left, and Sen.

His promise is now in question after the comments allegedly made during a private immigration meeting with lawmakers. "I've always believed that America is an idea, not definied by its people but by its ideals". It took courage for what he did.

"The president's comments are unkind, divisive, elitist and fly in the face of our nation's values".

"Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?" Tom Cotton. In addition to the lawmakers, White House chief of staff John Kelly and White House legislative director Marc Short were also present.

Graham also expressed support for Durbin. Trump past year ended the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which provided protection from deportation and the ability to work legally in the country. "We are a nation of immigrants, and a nation built on the backs of hard-working men and women from ALL over the world". I am committed to working with Republicans and Democrats to find common ground so we can move forward'.

Utah Senator Orrin Hatch, also a Republican, said he wanted more details of the president's comments.

Trump previously told Haitian-Americans: "I really want to be your greatest champion, and I will be your champion", while he was campaigning previous year in Miami's Little Haiti.

"... We should be grateful for the enormous contributions made by immigrants from Haiti - and other nations - to America", Clinton said. Take them out, ' though he denies speaking disparagingly about Haitians. Then, as the exact time that the quake hit drew near, Bastien said, "Enough of Trump" and everyone closed their eyes for a moment of prayer.
