As a moment of silence was held in Haiti on Friday to mark the eighth anniversary of the devastating quake that killed more than 220,000 people, shock waves over President Donald Trump's disparaging description of the island nation cast a pall over the somber ceremony. "This is the time but, day by day, they are blowing the one great opportunity they have".

President Trump's reported vulgar and dismissive comment about Haiti and certain African countries has received criticism, including in San Antonio.

The US leader made the alleged remark in a Thursday meeting on immigration. "There is a serious need for dialogue between the USA administration and the African countries". "When he makes these kind of comments, they aren't borne out by the reality and value of these immigrants".

And then he went on when we started to describe the immigration from Africa that was being protected in this bipartisan measure. "Ours is not a shithole country, neither is Haiti or any other country in distress, " said Jesse Duarte, the ANC's Deputy Secretary-General.

"I don't believe the Democrats really want to see a deal on DACA".

In short, they say, those countries are sh**holes, and due to their sh**holity, we need to allow immigration from them. "The so-called bipartisan DACA deal presented yesterday to myself and a group of Republican Senators and Congressmen was a big step backwards", Trump said in a series of tweets on Friday. We hear you loud and clear, Mr. President.
