Trump in 'excellent health': WH on 1st medical examination of President

The 55-nation African Union condemned the remarks last Friday, while a statement from ambassadors of all countries from the continent at the United Nations demanded a retraction and apology.

In an Oval Office meeting, Trump questioned why the USA should admit immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa. Warning: Future references to the vulgarity spoken by President Trump will be in English.

"They say it's about numbers, merit, security and control", Frank Sharry of the immigrant rights group America's Voice said of organizations that share Trump's desire to reduce both illegal and legal immigration to the U.S.

"Whoa. I've never seen a statement like this by African countries directed at the United States".

Trump disputes some of the accounts of the Oval Office exchange reported by others in the room but hasn't denied using an expletive to describe African countries or the overall tenor of his comments.

People walk together to mark the eighth anniversary of the massive natural disaster in Haiti and to condemn President Donald Trump's reported statement about immigrants from Haiti, Africa and El Salvador on January 12, 2018, in Miami, Florida.


Mr. Trump on Twitter Friday morning that the "language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used".

"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", the statement said, adding that Trump's remark "reflects a totally erroneous and racist view of the Haitian community and its contribution to the United States". Isn't Trump demonstrating that he's nothing but a racist and pursuing a policy of "Make America White Again"? "They are all talk and no action", he tweeted.

Almost a year into Trump's presidency, members of Congress are still struggling to relate to the unorthodox Trump and his spontaneous, often crude remarks.

Anthony Scaramucci, whose brief tenure as White House communications director ended shortly after his expletive-filled comments about his administration colleagues appeared in The New Yorker, said Trump "is not a racist". His comments Thursday revived accusations of racism, roiled immigration talks, set off global outrage and left some foreign journalists wondering how to express the offending word. Perhaps the least racist.

"We do not recall the president saying these comments specifically but what he did call out was the imbalance in our current immigration system, which does not protect American workers and our national interest", they said in a statement.

"The point is, if you have a Ph.D., I don't care what country you're from, we want you", Barry Bennett, a former Trump adviser, told The Hill newspaper.
