Trump Blames Democrats for Stalled Immigration Negotiations Amid Backlash for 'Shithole' Comments

Robert Jeffress, pastor of First Baptist Dallas, a prominent Southern Baptist church, said that while he would not have used the same language Trump did, he agrees with the president's perspective. He added that Trump supports immigration policies that welcome "those who can contribute to our society".

Although the President denied he had used such language on Friday, Democratic Sen.

"The Bostwana Government has also enquired from the US Government through the Ambassador, to clarify if Botswana is regarded as a "shithole" country", the statement said.

Ignoring shouted questions about the mounting firestorm over race, the president paid tribute during a ceremony to the reverend's "peaceful crusade for justice and equality".

It should come as no surprise that someone who began his campaign by using derogatory and racist remarks against Mexican immigrants would denigrate entire countries like El Salvador and Haiti and the continent of Africa, but as Americans, we have to be better than that.

Several lawmakers expressed disappointment and disgust, with Republican Sen. I can say the same about other nations in Central America and Africa swept up in his epithet. Durbin said people who would be allowed to stay in the USA included those who had fled here after disasters hit their homes in places such as El Salvador, Guatemala and Haiti. "Why don't we get more people from Norway?'" Durbin told reporters in Chicago.

Trump questioned why the US should accept more immigrants from Haiti and Africa over places like Norway.

Samantha Power, a former USA ambassador to the United Nations, wrote on Twitter that she had "never seen a statement like this by African countries directed at the United Nations".

On Wednesday, Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg had visited the White House and was praised by Trump for running a trade deficit with the United States and for buying U.S. military equipment.

Asked about the remarks, White House spokesman Raj Shah did not deny them.

Among those condemning the comments were Hatian-American Republican Rep. Mia Love of Utah, who called the reported comments "unkind, divisive [and] elitist" and demanded that Trump apologize to Americans and nations he so 'wantonly maligned'.

"He lacked any sense of self-control or the a sense of propriety that is needed for the office of the President of the United States". He has said Mexican immigrants were "bringing crime" and were "rapists".

"I'm not the only one that does not remember that being said".

Republican lawmakers who were in the Thursday meeting generally sidestepped questions about precisely what Trump said. But it wasn't just Democrats objecting.

Trump's comments added uncertainty to already contentious talks about legislation to shield hundreds of thousands of young immigrants from deportation and boost border security measures.

"The anniversary of the devastating quake 8 years ago is a day to remember the tragedy, honor the resilient people of Haiti, & affirm America's commitment to helping our neighbors", Clinton wrote on Twitter.

Trump has spoken positively about Haitians in public. I've always believed that America is an idea, not defined by its people but by its ideals.

The agreement that Durbin and Sen.

But the government of Haiti - which yesterday marked the eighth anniversary of a devastating natural disaster that killed at least 200,000 people - declared itself "outraged and shocked" by the "racist" slur. "This is the real face of Donald Trump - the face of hate, racism".

"Casual Friday at the White House is soon to include hoods and tiki torches at this rate", South African media outlet Daily Maverick wrote. It was unclear why the four Republicans were there, and the session did not produce the results the two senators were hoping for.

There is a long history of the White House picking and choosing what to reveal about the commander in chief's health, said Barbara Perry, director of presidential studies at the University of Virginia's Miller Center.

Trump on Friday panned the "so-called bipartisan DACA deal" as "a big step backwards".

"How do six people bind the other 94 in the Senate?"

He was referring to January 19, when funds for operating federal agencies expires.

Trump's comments highlighted months of concerns about his lack of focus on Africa, including empty ambassadorial posts in key countries like South Africa, Egypt, Congo and Somalia.
