Trump's 'shithole' remarks targeted at Hatians, Africans sparks global outrage

Given this shifting demographic, one would normally expect a president and his party to tone down racist rhetoric in a midterm election year and instead try to expand the voter base.

Apparently, President Trump's reaction to the upcoming deal left Congress members from both parties in shock, if not for the statement itself, then for the flippancy with which he declared it. Senator Dick Durbin of IL spoke on his bewilderment, calling the language used, "heartbreaking".

On Twitter, President Macky Sall of Senegal wrote: "I am shocked by President Trump's comments on Haiti and Africa". Because a Queens-born real estate developer used a bad word to describe the countries from which he'd prefer to exclude or reduce the number of immigrants?

"Africans and Haitians come from "shithole" countries?".

This would leave open the possibility of Vice President Mike Pence invoking the 25th amendment, thus setting up a Constitutional crisis that could land Trump out of the White House with sufficient Congressional approval.

Trump had been quoted as saying during a meeting at the White House earlier in the week, "Why do we want all these people from Africa here?"

The lawmakers had hoped Trump would back their accord, an agreement among six senators evenly split among Republicans and Democrats, ending a monthslong, bitter dispute over protecting the "dreamers". The White House did not provide specific results of those tests.

"We sent guidance to our folks and told them that we must reiterate that we have great respect for the people of Africa and all nations, and our commitment remains strong", he said.

During the meeting, Trump questioned why the US would accept more immigrants from Haiti and Africa rather than places like Norway.

CT combed through 2016 U.S. Census data to learn how numerous state's immigrants came from nations of which President Donald Trump reportedly called "s-thole countries".

In November then Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Elaine Duke revoked temporary protected status for Haitians who came to the US after an natural disaster destroyed the island country in 2010. Trump met this week with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg.

But they also thanked those Americans "from all walks of life who have condemned the remarks".

Trump offered the tweet at 8:14 a.m. with little other comment. He has said Mexican immigrants were "bringing crime" and were "rapists".

"We would not deign to make comments as derogatory as that about any country that has any kind of socio-economic or other difficulties", Duarte said, adding that much like their African counterparts, millions of United States citizens were affected by problems such as unemployment.

Senegal's foreign ministry also called in the US ambassador in Dakar to demonstrate its displeasure, a US State Department official said. Others said Trump, a 71-year-old who relishes rejecting political correctness, was voicing views held quietly by many.

The Trump administration announced late a year ago that it would end a temporary residency permit program that allowed almost 60,000 citizens from Haiti to live and work in the United States following a devastating 2010 natural disaster. That Mr. Trump remains blatantly racist shows not only personal mendacity but a lack of concern for the will of the public - a nonchalance best explained by the numerous suppression mechanisms the GOP has created to disenfranchise voters. He stressed the U.S. was "much stronger than the sum total of one man".

The agreement that Durbin and Sen.

The African Union has also said it was alarmed by President Trump's vulgar statement. For decades, he has described USA cities with substantial black and Latino populations - in particular, Chicago - in the same derogatory language he used on Thursday.

Durbin, of IL, somberly countered Trump's version of events.

"There has not been a deal reached yet", said White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
