Trump tweets about DACA amid controversy over vulgarity

Trump is'in excellent health' White House doctor says

The counsel general of Haiti in Miami told Local 10 News on Friday that he is shocked and outraged about President Donald Trump's alleged controversial remark about Haiti.

Florida GOP Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen said Trump's comments were "completely unacceptable", telling WPLG-TV in Miami that "if that's not racism, I don't know how you can define it".

Trump tweeted Friday that he "never said anything derogatory about Haitians" and praised his relationship with people from the country. "Sorry, but there is no other word one can use but ´racist´", Rupert Colville, spokesman for the United Nations human rights office, told reporters in Geneva. Several Democratic lawmakers slammed Trump for his comments and described them as racist comment.

Trump, who opened his presidential campaign in 2015 by calling some Mexican immigrants "rapists" and "criminals", reportedly made the remark during a meeting concerning a deal that would allow for increased security along the U.S. -Mexico border, while also allowing for the continuation of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

Ghana's President Nana Akufo-Addo called the remark "extremely unfortunate" and said, "We will not accept such insults, even from a leader of a friendly country".


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".

Durbin said Trump specifically asked, "Do we need more Haitians?" before launching into a diatribe about African immigration. Lindsey Graham, who was also at the meeting, seemed to confirm that report in a statement in which he said "following comments by the president, I said my piece directly to him yesterday". "Millions have then gone on to make tremendous contributions to the United States, revitalizing the communities in which they live, and weaving deeply into the multicultural fabric of the United States".

"(I) have known many fine Haitians - including a former governor general of Canada, " Campbell said in a tweet. "That's not how a president behaves".

He went on to talk about he witnessed in Haiti, stating the nation's people had "been through more, they've withstood more, they've fought back against more injustice than our President ever has". The largest is El Salvadoran, the second is Honduran and the third is Haitian and when I mentioned that fact to him he said "Haitians?"

Richard Blumenthal, a Democratic senator, said Trump's comment "smacks of blatant racism, the most odious and insidious racism masquerading poorly as immigration policy", while the United Nations said "there is no other word one can use but "racist" to describe his outburst.
