African ambassadors condemn Trump remarks as 'racist'

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. Though the White House flatly denied the report, given Trump's other colorful language to describe non-white foreigners, it certainly seems credible.

According to Democratic Senator, Dick Durbin, Trump, during a meeting at the White House to consider migrant policies, said, "Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?"

Maravi Post established that the US President made the controversial remarks on Thursday when he questioned why the US would accept any more immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa rather than from Norway.

At the time, Trump was 6 feet 3 inches tall and weighed 236 pounds, which Bornstein said made him "overweight for his height". Trump had met with the Norwegian prime minister on Wednesday.

Haiti Volunteer to President Trump
Choosing to leave out the word "s--hole", the paper said that the remarks immediately sparked "controversy and indignation". As for the shithole comment, the White House didn't even bother to try to deny it this time around.

"That's when he used these vile and vulgar comments, calling the nations they come from 'shitholes.' The exact word used by the president, not just once, but repeatedly", he said.

The statement from the African ambassadors expressed concern over the Trump regime's apparent increasing denigration of Africa "and people of colour". Trump reportedly said, before suggesting that the USA bring in more immigrants from countries like Norway. And for all of you who over the last few years who have uttered that exhausted, lazy, uninformed, uneducated, ignorant, response of calling me and others who point out racist behavior "racist"? "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!". He did not respond to questions regarding his alleged comments.

Trump's insults sparked the African group of ambassadors to the United Nations to issue an extraordinary statement condemning his "outrageous, racist and xenophobic remarks" and also demand a retraction and apology. "America deserves better, and when I'm governor, I'll protect immigrant families and make IL a welcoming state for all".

Trump revoked that protection, which officially ends on July 22, stoking anger and anxiety in the community that was only worsened by what he reportedly said on the subject in a meeting Thursday. "We should be talking about how we bring people together", Pugh said. He tweeted Friday that he used "tough" language but "not that language", which was being taken as a denial of the "sh*thole" comment, although Mr. Trump did not specifically reference that phrase in his denial.
