African nations slam Trump's vulgar remarks as 'reprehensible and racist'

'I am not a racist,' Trump says after disparaging comments about Haiti, African nations

Mr Durbin said: "The President started tweeting this morning, denying that he used those words. This isn't just a story about vulgar language, it's about opening the door to humanity's worst side, about validating and encouraging racism and xenophobia", United Nations human rights spokesman Rupert Colville said.

The comments were "clearly" racist, Kalondo said, but stressed the U.S. was "much stronger than the sum total of one man".

On Thursday, Trump was meeting lawmakers to discuss a proposal for an immigration plan when he reportedly grew agitated as the conversation turned to citizens of Haiti and El Salvador, and immigrants from the African continent.

President Akufo-Addo tweeted that Trump's reported language was "extremely unfortunate", adding: "We are certainly not "a shithole country".

It didn't take long for people across the globe to criticize Trump's alleged remarks as being racist, including several Democratic lawmakers.

Farris Jr. participated in a White House event honoring his uncle on Friday and told CNN that Trump addressed the issue while in the Oval Office with Vice President Mike Pence and Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson before the ceremony. Rep. Cedric L. Richmond (D-La.), chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, said on Twitter that Trump's remarks "are further proof that his Make America Great Again Agenda is really a Make America White Again agenda".

President Trump signed a proclamation Friday for Martin Luther King Jr.

African nations slam Trump's vulgar remarks as 'reprehensible and racist'

When asked about the comments directly, President Trump had no comment.

Trump, in front of a room full of congressmen said that he would prefer people from "Norway" to come to the United States instead of places such as Haiti and El Salvador.

Harris Rosen, president of Rosen Hotels, said one third of his staff is from Haiti.

Steven Forester, of the Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti, blasted the president's decision to sunset TPS as racist and said the reported comments prove it.

There was no mention at that time of the language that sources said Trump had used, details of which were soon leaked.

"My hope is that it will inspire individuals to say I'm going to live my life to prove them wrong, that statement wrong, the misconceptions wrong, or the labels wrong", Jacques said. "He said these hate-filled things, and he said them repeatedly", Durbin added. I want safety and security for our people.
