White House physician: Trump in 'excellent health'

13 January 2018

Our AU Presidents must respond strongly to this insult.

According to The Washington Post, during an Oval Office meeting on Thursday with US senators to discuss the status of some immigrants in the country, President Trump described Haiti, El Salvador and unspecified African countries as "shitholes". Friday night in Raleigh, African immigrants had plenty to say about the president.

The newspaper, L'Osservatore Romano, wrote about the comment in a front-page article about the immigration debate in the United States.

In the United States, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) described Trump's comments as "a low mark for this president" and "a low point for our nation".

Roughly 13,000 of the state's immigrants came from Haiti and 5,600 people came from El Salvador.

In a series of tweets Friday, Trump said he used "tough" language but that he "never said anything derogatory" about Haitians.

"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. Immigrants don't just belong in America, immigrants have helped build America", the senator said on Twitter.

The Vatican newspaper on Friday branded US President Donald Trump's reported comments about African countries and Haiti as "particularly harsh and offensive".

He added: "When the question was asked about Haitians... he said 'Haitians?" Now more than ever we need to hear your voices. Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, who was in the meeting, said the reports were correct. When I mentioned that fact to him, he said, 'Haitians? Baltimore Rep. Elijah Cummings said, "I condemn this unforgivable statement and this demeaning of the office of the presidency". "He said these hateful things and he said them repeatedly", said Sen.

Initially, the White House did not deny Trump's racially charged comments, but Trump claimed today he did not utter such disparaging words during a recent meeting at the Oval Office. The president said he has a wonderful relationship with Haitians and suggested future meetings probably should be recorded.

The Wisconsin Republican said President Trump's vulgar slur about Africa was "very unfortunate, unhelpful", according to the Associated Press.

The American ideal is embraced by people all over the globe.

Five other Republicans aren't discussing what was said.

"I don't think there's any apologizing out of this", the Chicago Democrat said of Trump.

No matter how much some conservative supporters of Trump believe the United States should adopt an isolationist stance, walling off borders and refusing to deal with the rest of the world, it's not possible.

The lawmakers who were in that room are in a position to answer the question.
