White House Physician Declares Trump In 'Excellent Health' After Physical Exam

Durbin on Trump'He Said These Hate Filled Things

The remarks - which Trump denied amid wide condemnation in the United States and overseas - came during an Oval Office meeting with lawmakers.

The Trump administration has been feeling the heat after the president allegedly called nations like Haiti, El Salvador and several African countries "sh*thole countries" during a bipartisan meeting about immigration.

President Trump's reported vulgar and dismissive comment about Haiti and certain African countries has received criticism, including in San Antonio.

All 54 African ambassadors to the United Nations decried Donald Trump's reported remarks as "outrageous, racist, and xenophobic" on Friday, a day after USA media reported that Trump had referred to African states, Haiti, and El Salvador as "s***hole countries". Richard Durbin of IL - after Trump reportedly made the comment at an Oval Office meeting, where he was also is claimed to have said disparaging things about Haitian immigrants.

Durbin is part of a bipartisan group of six senators who announced Thursday the framework of a compromise on immigration.

In another Twitter post, the president wrote that he "never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very troubled and poor country".

The Trump administration announced late past year 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 quake.

In a statement issued in NY, the group of over 50 nations said: "the AU expressed its disappointment and outrage over the unfortunate comment made by Mr. Donald Trump, President of the United States of America". "This is particularly surprising as the United States of America remains a global example of how migration gave birth to a nation built on strong values of diversity and opportunity". "I'm sorry, but there's no other word one can use but racist", Colville said.

As for the shithole comment, the White House didn't even bother to try to deny it this time around. They could have said "if they are indeed true, then these words are indeed shameful and racist and beneath the presidency".

"The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used".

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

"I condemn this unforgivable statement and this demeaning of the office of the Presidency", Baltimore Rep. Elijah E. Cummings said in a tweet.

The government in Botswana called Trump's comment "reprehensible and racist".

Durbin noted that Graham confronted the president about his remarks. Her parents immigrated to the States when they were only children. He did so after Mr. Trump tweeted a denial, saying that he used "tough" language but "not that language".

"It's quite clear that he sees black people as lesser", McWhorter said.
