Botswana demands clarification on Trump's 'shithole' remarks; Summon US ambassador


Mr. Trump has denied using that language but others present say he did.

Several lawmakers expressed disappointment and disgust, with Republican Sen. Do we need more Haitians?' Then he went on and started to describe the immigration from Africa that was being protected in this bipartisan measure.

According to leaked comments when Trump and a group of Senators were discussing the various temporary protected status programs for Haitians, El Salvadorians, and others, Trump asked why the national immigration policy of the USA did not prioritize immigrants from more prosperous countries like Norway, rather than Haiti and El Salvador.

His remarks were allegedly made at an Oval Office meeting held on the eve of the anniversary of the 2010 quake, one of the deadliest disasters in modern history. Tom Cotton of Arkansas and David Perdue of Georgia, issued a joint statement, saying they did "not recall the president saying those comments specifically".

Antonio Conte and Chelsea make unwanted history following Leicester City stalemate
Asked if he would extend his contract with Chelsea , Conte added: "In this case, I think the club has to decide to send me away". Leicester went down to 10 men when defender Ben Chilwell was booked twice in five minutes midway through the second half.

"We would not deign to make comments as derogatory as that about any country that has any kind of socio-economic or other difficulties", Duarte said, adding that much like their African counterparts millions of USA citizens were affected by problems such as unemployment.

Dick Durbin (D-IL) confirmed the allegations.

African anger about Trump's comments, made during a White House meeting on immigration, could impact U.S. companies doing business in one of the world's fastest growing regions and complicate the Pentagon's counterterrorism efforts and security cooperation on the continent, diplomats and analysts said. Not just once but repeatedly.

A White House official said Trump had also suggested he would be open to more immigrants from Asian countries because he felt that they help the United States economically. "That was the nature of this conversation".

Republican senators say they don't recall vulgar Trump comment
Trump took to Twitter on Friday to deny using the vulgar term during a White House meeting Thursday on immigration. Trump later tweeted that the language he used was tough, but not the language being reported.

"I said to the president, 'Do you realize how painful that term is to so many people?" Trump told senators in the Oval Office, according to a source briefed on the meeting, the comments from which were first reported by The Washington Post. The president said the "so-called bipartisan" deal "was a big step backwards". Isn't Trump demonstrating that he's nothing but a racist and pursuing a policy of "Make America White Again"?

He was also said to have added the suggestion that the U.S. should admit people from Norway instead.

It's unclear now how a deal might emerge, and failure could lead to a government shutdown. "I can not believe that in the history of the White House, in that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak".
