Lt. Gov. Newsom Calls on President Trump to Resign Over 'Shithole' Comment

Carolyn Kaster  AP

He spent last Thursday evening making a flurry of calls to friends and outside advisers to judge their reaction to the tempest, according to the insider. He's seen a lot of foreign lands, shaken hands with people who look nothing like him and believes America owes a huge debt to Haiti.

Critics of the president, including some in his own Republican Party, attacked the vulgar comments he made behind closed doors.

Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh said she was appalled by President Donald Trump's recent comments in the Oval Office, in which he reportedly said immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African nations come "from shithole countries" and questioned why they should be welcomed in by the United States.

The UN Office of the High Commissioner on Human Rights (OHCHR) has denounced President Trump's remarks as "shocking and shameful", and "racist".

"There is a serious need for dialogue between the US administration and the African countries".

Democrats have dismissed Trump's denial of the offensive comments, with Senator Dick Durbin, who attended the meeting, disputing Trump's account. He suggested in a statement Friday that the president had said something questionable, but Graham did not directly say Trump had used the term "sh-hole" to describe African countries. Durbin maintains that he heard the comments firsthand, as do other sources. In exchange for a compromise on the Daca programme, Mr Trump is demanding funding for his Mexican border wall. Say, 'I did not mean this.

The tentative deal also addresses border security, including a border wall, the diversity visa lottery and chain migration, in which U.S. green-card holders can sponsor other family members for permanent residence in the country.

Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country. "Made up by Dems". I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians. "Probably should record future meetings".

He concluded by saying, "We will find unity only when we recognize that in our current president we have elected, perhaps for the first time in our history, an enemy of compassion". Instead, the deputy press secretary issued a statement arguing, "Trump will always fight for the American people". JB Pritzker, a Democrat running for IL governor, released the following statement Friday: "I've said it before and I'll say it again: Donald Trump is a racist and a xenophobe who has never had the dignity to be in the White House", said JB Pritzker.
