Maryland lawmakers, Mayor Pugh condemn Trump's comments on immigrants

In Thursday's meeting, lawmakers were reportedly proposing restoring the Temporary Protected Status permits for certain countries, while offering $1.5bn for a wall that Trump wants built on the U.S. border with Mexico.

A senator present at a White House immigration meeting says President Donald Trump used vulgar language to describe African countries, saying he "said these hate filled things and he said them repeatedly".

President Donald Trump's reportedly labelled African nations and Haiti at a bipartisan immigration meeting as "s**thole" while asking for more immigration from places like Norway. █ Trump cancels United Kingdom visit Trump on Thursday cancelled a "working visit" to the United Kingdom planned next month to launch new U.S. embassy, blaming a "bad deal" to relocate base from central London to an "off location".

Undersecretary of State Steve Goldstein, in charge of USA public diplomacy, said Mr Trump has the right to "make whatever remark he chooses", calling it the benefit of being president.

Trump was quoted in the Washington Post as having said: 'Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?' during a discussion about immigration.

Other supporters likened Trump's comments to locker room banter ― we've heard that before ― or even "kitchen table" talk, suggesting the president was just mimicking conversations that happen in some corners of the USA every day.

So who's being protected by all this false timorousness - besides the person who said it? We have Haitians who are driving cabs all throughout this country.

Rivers said Trump took the torch out of the hand of the Statue of Liberty with his remarks.

The African Group of UN ambassadors said it was "extremely appalled at, and strongly condemns the outrageous, racist and xenophobic remarks by the president of the United States of America as widely reported by the media".

Jeff Bezos donates $33 million to fund college scholarships for Dreamers
The money will go to a scholarship fund that will pay for 1,000 illegal immigrant high schoolers to go to college. The tech industry has been an outspoken supporter of DACA and the young immigrants it protects.

Trump spent Thursday evening making a flurry of calls to friends and outside advisers to judge their reaction to the tempest, said the confidant, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to disclose a private conversation.

Orange County Commissioner Victoria Siplin, who is of Haitian ancestry, said Friday that Trump is misinformed about the island nation, the first independent country founded by freed slaves. "Why do we want all these people from s--hole countries?"

The comment "truly flies in the face of accepted behaviour and practice", said Ebba Kalondo, spokeswoman for AU chief Moussa Faki. "I'll take a downtrodden Haitian, Salvadoran or African who hungers for and will defend freedom and opportunity in America over a privileged bigot who'd sell our liberty to the highest bidder any day", he said.

Miami's Haitian-American community leaders planned to spend Friday remembering the hundreds of thousands of lives lost in the horrific 2010 natural disaster on the island.

African anger about Trump's comments, made during a White House meeting on immigration, could impact United States 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. But I can not believe that in the history of the White House, in that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday.

Former Vice President Joe Biden condemned the remark on Twitter.

Most importantly, though, this is an abdication of what the presidency is supposed to be.

An emotional Sunny Hostin on "The View" Friday, noting that her husband's family is from Haiti, said she's always resisted labeling Trump because she couldn't look into his heart.

From 1870 to 1910 a quarter of Norway's working-age population emigrated, mostly to the United States. We're better than this, ' Biden tweeted Friday morning.

Steven Forester, of the Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti, blasted the president's decision to sunset TPS as racist and said the reported comments prove it.
