Trump denies using racist slur on African countries

"President Donald Trump's dismissal of Haiti, El Salvador and African nations as" shithole countries" whose inhabitants are not desirable for USA immigration shocked people around the world and provoked swift condemnation.

Ignoring shouted questions about the mounting firestorm over race, the president paid tribute during a ceremony to the reverend's "peaceful crusade for justice and equality".

South African comedian Trevor Noah, star of "The Daily Show", described himself as an offended citizen of "South Shithole" and also criticised Mr Trump's preferred choice of Norway for immigrants. "I hate saying that, but I can say that now". "Do we need more Haitians?"

"Yesterday's statement makes it more reasonable for courts to decide that the travel ban can be struck down as unlawful - beyond the president's authority under immigration statutes, and as unconstitutional - without necessarily intruding on the national security authority of a president who exercises that authority in a nondiscriminatory and rational way." said Motomura.

"I believe he lost his temper and said it", Jacquet said. "But I think the president might be a racist". When it came to the issue of, quote, "chain migration", I said to the president, do you realize how painful that term is to so many people? The distinction is important to Sharpton. But the problem with Trump's speech isn't the form, it's the content, which is frequently racist, misogynist, or xenophobic.

In light of Trump's apparent claim that he wants to prioritize people from countries like Norway, the uglier white nationalist cast of all of this is inescapable. He said he wants to call the bill to the floor of the Senate early next week. "But if he keeps stealing things, he's a thief".

"It's racist", said Niftaly Pierre of Orlando.

"They never took a thing from our federal government".

On Friday morning, however, Mr. Trump denied making these remarks but held fast to his sweeping proposals for removing protections for groups of people in legal grey zones of immigration status.

Here is Clinton's tweet. But it can no longer be denied that Trump opposes the deal at least in part because it does not do enough to resist or roll back ongoing racial and demographic trends. He believes it stems from people considering it a fixed identity, when that's not necessarily the case.

So are those at the Greater Haitian American Chamber of Commerce. We have some people who say that he said it, others don't recall. Uganda's state minister for worldwide relations, Henry Okello Oryem, called the remarks "unfortunate and regrettable" and hoped that heads of state will reply at an African Union summit later this month. But he has received some blow-back there.

The first is that it assumes Trump's base will uniformly support a racist comment, which is a disservice to those supporters.

Some of Graham's ideological opposites, however, are well beyond him.

Therefore, there's no rational argument that can defend the use of that word.

MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell wondered where some of his colleagues had been. (King seems to have broken with Trump more frequently in recent weeks, having also spoken out against the president's revocation of temporary protected status for Salvadorans and Trump's signature tax law.) Rep. Dan Donovan, who also opposed the Trump-supported tax plan on the grounds that it will harm New Yorkers, was more circumspect in his statement.

The remarks were allegedly made when lawmakers visited him on Thursday to discuss a bipartisan proposal that would impose new restrictions on immigration but protect the so-called "Dreamers" - hundreds of thousands of immigrants brought to the USA illegally as children - from deportation.
