Trevor Noah On Trump: "I Think The President Might Be Racist"

Trevor Noah On Trump:

"Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country", he tweeted.

The controversy flared just two months before the United States, Canada and Mexico must formally submit their joint bid to stage the 2026 World Cup to world governing body Federation Internationale de Football Association on March 16.

The White House issued a statement afterward that did not deny the remarks.

The latest all-consuming Trump controversy is over his remarks in an Oval Office meeting that he doesn't want people coming here from "sh**hole" countries (although he may have really said "sh**house" countries, for those who are sticklers for accuracy when it comes to presidential vulgarity).

Democratic U.S. Senator Dick Durbin, who was at the White House meeting, condemned the president's use of language and said he used the word "shithole" repeatedly. "Do we need more Haitians?'"

"Apparently, what Trump objected to in the bipartisan plan was the senators from both sides who wanted to restore protections for immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador, and a handful of African countries that had to be rescued from hard situations", Kimmel explained, adding a disclaimer before noting the expletive Trump used.

Trump has since tweeted that he used "tough" language during the meeting but never used the derogatory language that has caused outrage across the globe. The proposed deal is a "big step backwards" and "outlandish", he wrote.

On the other side, a stock may be considered to be in a downtrend if trading below the moving average and sloping downward. A value of 50-75 would signal a very strong trend, and a value of 75-100 would indicate an extremely strong trend.

U-19 world cup warm-up matches washed out for second straight day
After 1988 they didn't hold the tournament for 10 years, so I've no exposure of playing and being part of this tournament. India's batting mainstay in Tests, Cheteshwar Pujara, scored the most runs-309-in the 2006 edition in Sri Lanka.

Florida GOP Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen said Trump's comments were "completely unacceptable", telling WPLG-TV in Miami that "if that's not racism, I don't know how you can define it". "In reforming immigration we can not lose these American Ideals".

The tentative deal also addresses border security, including a border wall, the diversity visa lottery and chain migration. "People come here because they're trying to improve their lives, not make it worse", she said.

"Ours is not a shithole country, neither is Haiti or any other country in distress", said Duarte. The President "must apologize to both the American people and the nations he so wantonly maligned".

It is hardly a surprise that Trump would harbor such racist feelings about Africa, Haiti and El Salvador. He went on to say that he had "a wonderful relationship with Haitians".

Trump's reported comments were also taken personally by Dr. Andrew Furey, an orthopedic surgeon in St. John's, N.L., and founder of Team Broken Earth, a group of medical professionals who responded to the Haitian natural disaster in 2010 and has since returned to the country several times. Jesse Watters, host of Fox News's "The Five", defended the president's comments, saying "this is how the forgotten men and women of America talk at the bar".

Democrats, meanwhile, were unsparing in their criticism.

"The President seems to harbour racist feelings about people of colour from other parts of the world", said Jim Acosta of CNN on Thursday. This time, the White House did not deny what he said on January 11, and it has been confirmed by some members of Congress present.
