How Wisconsin politicians responded to Trump's 'shithole' comment

Although House Speaker Paul Ryan did not go as far as Democrats in criticizing the president, even he acknowledged that the remark from the leader of his party was "unfortunate" and "unhelpful".

A Haitian church in Rockville, Maryland, held a prayer vigil Saturday after President Donald Trump allegedly made obscene comments about Haiti and African countries.

New York Democratic Congressman Jerry Nadler and his Louisiana colleague Cedric Richmond said on Friday that they will introduce a resolution next week to censure Trump over his reported remarks.

Critics of the president, including some Republicans, on Friday blasted the vulgar comments made in the Oval Office.

Trump's comments came during an Oval Office meeting where he questioned why the USA would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa as he rejected a bipartisan immigration deal, according to one participant and people briefed on the extraordinary Oval Office conversation.

He asked lawmakers discussing immigration why the USA would take in more people from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa.

Senator Dick Durbin of IL, the only Democrat in the room, said Trump had indeed said what he was reported to have said.

"The president has not hidden who he is", he said. It is disparaging to people in the United States who are from these countries.

Sen. Tom CottonTom CottonGOP and Dems bitterly divided by immigration Grassley offers DACA fix tied to tough enforcement measures Five things senators should ask Tom Cotton if he's nominated to lead the CIA MORE (R-Ark.), a conservative senator present at the immigration meeting will appear on CBS's "Face the Nation". But then, the president denigrated immigrants from Africa, Haiti, and El Salvador and shot down a bipartisan immigration agreement made in the Senate. They are doing nothing to fix DACA.

Trump on Thursday rejected a pitch from a bipartisan team of senators on a compromise immigration deal to protect DACA participants while increasing border security.


While Trump has publicly denied making the remarks, he reportedly called close friends to weigh their reactions to the controversy, denied he was racist and blamed the media for distorting the meaning of his words. I've not read one of them that's inaccurate. "Too bad!" Trump tweeted as he arrived at his private golf club in West Palm Beach, Florida.

The Haitian government said in a statement "these insulting and reprehensible statements in no way reflect the virtues of wisdom, restraint and discernment that must be cultivated by any high political authority", according to the Associated Press, adding that the comment "reflects a totally erroneous and racist view of the Haitian community and its contribution to the United States".

"I think it´s going to go very well", he said, adding that he would be "surprised if it doesn´t".

The group "is concerned at the continuing and growing trend from the USA administration towards Africa and people of African descent to denigrate the continent and people of color", it said. A person familiar with talk at the meeting told CNN that Trump also said: "Why do we need more Haitians?"

Jackson says he looks forward to proving additional details at a White House briefing Tuesday. To borrow a slogan that many Americans of different backgrounds have been using since the beginning of this presidency, today we mourn, tomorrow we fight. In the 1980s, the USA government - claiming that Haitian pigs had swine fever - participated in the extermination of almost every native black pig, which represented some families' entire life savings.

Trump insisted he "never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country".

In a statement, the A.U Mission said it condemned the remarks in the strongest terms and wants a retraction of the comments and an apology to not only to the Africans but to all people of African descent around the globe. And to this day, as I'm talking to you, we have Haitians in universities who are professors here. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!"

Donald Trump´s doctor says he is in excellent health, after the 71-year-old president underwent his first medical examination Friday since taking office, the White House said. After starting his presidential campaign by insulting Mexicans, then using a vulgar term to describe National Football League players who were protesting against police brutality, Robillard said Trump has already shown his true nature.

President Trump is judging immigrants by where they come from, and it is hard not to see this as a question of ethnicity.

She said her father's life and work should be applied to the current moment, where racism has again come out into the open.
