Bay Area Haitians disgusted by president's 'shithole' comments

Among others, United Nations spokesperson Rupert Coleville said Trump's reported word choice to refer to nations of non-white people is unequivocally "racist".

Lisa Murkowski stated Friday that President Donald Trump's description of African nations as "shithole nations" during a meeting to discuss immigration legislation "doesn't reflect who we are as a country".

Reports of the president's language referring to people of colour from the other countries drew criticism from USA lawmakers of both major parties and critics overseas who said they could not be described as anything but racist.

He said it was a necessary change, even though the U.S. had been linked to Grosvenor Square for more than 200 years.

President Donald Trumps vulgar outbursts during a White House meeting on immigration are racist and indefensible no matter how he parses them.

What was it Dr. King said about being judged by the content of one's character and not the color of one's skin? "Instead, 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".

Senator Dick Durbin was the only democrat in the room.

"We are strongly committed in the Special Relationship between our two countries and we are confident the new Embassy will provide the necessary platform to continue our cooperation", the statement read. Predictably, Trump turned to Twitter Friday to try to change the narrative. "Oh, I feel bad", said Barhanyu Brhe who immigrated to Raleigh from Ethiopia in 2010 and now manages Abyssinia Ethiopian Restaurant near NC State.

The Western New York Refugee and Asylee Consortium consider the comments attributed to the President "inappropriate across the board".

"The words used by the president, as related to me directly following the meeting by those in attendance, were not 'tough, ' they were abhorrent and repulsive", tweeted Arizona Sen".

Walker says he has heard many different reports on what was actually said during the bi-partisan immigration meeting.

Norway, with a population just over 5,000,000 people, was ranked as the top nation in the World Happiness Report last March, edging out Denmark as the happiest country in the world, The Guardian reported.

The president of El Salvador, Salvador Sanchez Ceren, tweeted that Trump's statement struck a blow "to the dignity of the Salvadoran people".

Trump's alleged comments were met with condemnation from the United Nations.

"He said these hate-filled things", Durbin said Friday, "and he said them repeatedly".

The administration announced a year ago that it would end a temporary residency permit program that allowed almost 60,000 Haitians to live and work in the U.S.in the wake of a devastating 2010 quake.

Trump only denounced his earlier claims in September 2016, well into the 2016 presidential campaign, acknowledging that Obama was born in the United States.

Some believe the president's most recent comments may have made a deal almost impossible.

"In addition, the president singled out Haiti, telling lawmakers that immigrants from that country must be left out of any deal, these people said".
