Outrage over 's***hole countries' remark despite Trump denial

Outrage over 's***hole countries' remark despite Trump denial

All 54 African ambassadors to the United Nations decried Donald Trump's reported remarks as "outrageous, racist, and xenophobic" on Friday, a day after U.S. media reported that Trump had referred to African states, Haiti, and El Salvador as "s***hole countries".

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.

Meanwhile, Trump has denied making those comments, insisting that even though he used strong words, he didn't say the words being attributed to him, and that those words were made up by the Democrats. He also denied saying "anything derogatory about Haitians other than" that Haiti is "a very poor and troubled country".

Despite the back and forth regarding Trump's reported remarks, several lawmakers from both sides of the aisle have decried the language and condemned the comments.

As for whether or not it's prudent to use the label, Klein said, "Anchors should report facts".

The ANC is not in a position to stop any president from any country from saying anything they wish, she said. He said these hate-filled things.

Trump's next step was the general election against Hillary Clinton, which was first seen on primetime during their debate. After the mock Brzezinski expressed her outrage and asked what wasn't' included in the book, she quickly got her answer.

The comments revived charges that the president is racist, and rocked immigration talks that were already on a tenuous footing.

Just one day after referring to Haiti, El Salvador and African nations as "s**thole countries" President Donald Trump hosted an event on Friday in honor of the upcoming Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday. "There is no other word you can use but "racist".

His promise is now in question after the comments allegedly made during a private immigration meeting with lawmakers. "For years, I and others have been trying to tell you, the American people, that this man has been exhibiting bigoted behavior". The President and all those attending the meeting know what I said and how I feel.

On people from Haiti: "While Haitian immigrants typically arrive in the United States with lower levels of education and income than the general population, they sacrifice as parents to scrap and save and to ensure that their children can make the most of the opportunity to be here. I want to stop the massive inflow of drugs", he tweeted.

Rep. Mia Love, R-UT, herself a daughter of Haitian immigrants, issued a statement asking for the president to apologize for his "unkind, divisive and elitist" language.
