Why Trump's "Sh*thole" Comments Indisputably Prove His Racism

Haitians on Friday pushed back at U.S. President Donald Trump's reported description of the Caribbean country as a "shithole", instead celebrating a history of slave revolution and resilience on the eighth anniversary of a devastating natural disaster.

Now, of course, Cotton and Perdue saying they "do not recall" is not exactly a strong rebuke of Durbin or reports of the meeting, as it leaves open the possibility that those words were said and they just didn't hear them.

People briefed on the Oval Office conversation on immigration reform Thursday said Trump questioned why the USA would accept more immigrants from Haiti and what he called '"s***hole countries" in Africa.

"I can not believe in this history of the White House, in that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday", he said.

Trump's comments are extremely offensive to South Africa, said Jessie Duarte, a senior official with the ruling African National Congress. "I have not read one of them that is inaccurate".

Members of Central Florida's Haitian community on Friday criticized reports that President Donald Trump used a vulgar remark to describe the country on the eve of the anniversary of the 2010 quake, one of the deadliest disasters in modern history.

Donald Trump has tried to quell a storm over his reported criticism of immigration from "shithole countries" - a slur slammed as racist around the world.

Amid an global backlash over his reported use of a "crude slur" against immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and some African countries, President Donald Trump on Friday denied using the sort of language attributed to him at a meeting where he rejected a tentative deal for 8,00,000 young illegal immigrants.

"With the statement that he made, it was very clear to us that there is a racial basis for those decisions, even going so far as racist", Labossiere said. Earlier this week USA officials said those Salvadorans will lose their right to remain in the country next year. But instead of winning Trump's support, as they had expected, the president launched into a broadside against immigration from Haiti and Africa.

Sen. Susan Collins of Maine told Patty Wight of Maine Public Radio that the president should not denigrate citizens of other countries and that "it does not help us come up with a bipartisan approach to immigration". Trump used the words "repeatedly", the senator said.

Durbin said Trump's alleged "sxxxhole" remarks were accurate.

Graham and Durbin are leading efforts to codify protections for so-called "dreamers", immigrants who came to the United States illegally as children.

"As an American, I am ashamed of the president", said Democrat Representative Luis Gutierrez.

Some are tying the resignation of U.S. Ambassador to Panama John Feeley to the Trump remark, but the State Department says Feeley announced his resignation before the controversy.

One lawmaker in Ghana called for a boycott by developing countries against the United States until Trump leaves office.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein said Trump "espouses racist views and gives a wink and a nod to the darkest elements in our society".

Donald Trump has been accused of lying about referring to Caribbean, Central American and African nations as "shithole countries" amid a furious backlash over his reported comments during an immigration meeting.

"Most of all, it's not what a president should believe", tweeted the Democratic former vice president Joe Biden. "I want to stop the massive inflow of drugs".
