Trump in 'excellent health': WH on 1st medical examination of President

After Trump was asked at Thursday's White House meeting if the USA would accept more immigrants from Haiti and Africa, the president reportedly questioned why people from "s***hole countries" are coming to America.

Eight years ago, a catastrophic quake struck Haiti.

The president of Ghana tweeted Friday morning: "We are certainly not a 'shithole country.' We will not accept such insults, even from a leader of a friendly country, no matter how powerful".

Trump's reference to Norway may have been prompted by Prime Minister Erna Solberg who visited the White House on Wednesday when the president praised Norway for running a trade deficit with the United States and for buying U.S. military equipment. Richard Durbin of IL, the lone Democrat present in the Oval Office at the time, said Trump's denial was false and the president had said things that were "hate-filled, vile and racist".

The countries to which he referred are all failed states or on the verge of being so.

Racism has a strong ally in President Donald Trump.

Mr Trump's comments were decried as racist by African and Haitian politicians, by the United Nations human rights office and by U.S. lawmakers from both major parties.

He was also faced with the death of coach Robert Follis, and one day after that, the death of one of Hall's best friends. Hopefully Belfort will be able to find another fight soon, and end his awesome UFC career in style, like he deserves.

"So, that's what he said today in front of the cameras, but remember behind the cameras this is what the president just said yesterday", Lemon said before repeating Trump's previous racist remarks.

In Haiti, on the eighth anniversary of a devastating quake that killed about 220,000 people, the government also summoned the top United States diplomat for an explanation, while the Haitian ambassador to Washington called for an apology.

Members of his own Republican party have also distanced themselves from Trump's comments.

"We would not deign to make comments as derogatory as that about any country that has any kind of socio-economic or other difficulties", Duarte said, adding that much like their African counterparts, millions of U.S. citizens were affected by problems such as unemployment.

President Akufo-Addo tweeted that Trump's reported language was "extremely unfortunate", adding: "We are certainly not "a shithole country".

The UN Office of the High Commissioner on Human Rights (OHCHR) has denounced President Trump's remarks as "shocking and shameful", and "racist". Never said 'take them out.' Made up by Dems.

Trump's alleged statement also prompted outrage from the African Union (AU), the organization that includes all the 54 African UN states plus Western Sahara, which is not recognized by the UN. I have not read one of them that's inaccurate.
