Donald Trump should apologize for remarks: African states

14 January 2018

Former President Bill Clinton responded Friday to President Trump's reported comments questioning why the USA was accepting immigrants from "s--hole" countries, allegedly made in reference to Haiti and some countries in Africa and Central America.

The organisation representing African countries has demanded that US President Donald Trump apologise after he reportedly called nations on the continent "shitholes".

"Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people", spokesman Raj Shah said in a statement issued after The Washington Post first reported Trump's remarks.

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

On Friday, Mr Trump on Friday tweeted that his language he used at the private meeting with lawmakers to discuss immigration legislation had been "tough".

After the controversy, legislators took to social media to express what they think of Trump's comments. Mr. Trump reportedly said.

"Enough is enough: If the head of any corporation said what the president said yesterday, that person would be fired".

But U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, who was at the meeting, insists the Republican president used the vulgar term.

Trump's comments were immediately denounced as racist and xenophobic at home and overseas, by the United Nations human rights office and politicians from the countries named. "I use those words advisedly".

He said that Trump should focus on the substance of the immigration reform bill and making sure it includes funding for policies he has long advocated for, including a border wall and enhanced border security. He said these hateful things and he said them repeatedly.

The president implied Friday morning on Twitter that maybe he should start recording meetings because there is no trust.

Beyond the glaring racism, Trump's off-the-cuff remark revealed another aspect of his mentality: he wants successful immigrants only.

He added the USA should bring in more people from countries like Norway.

"Wall was not properly funded, Chain & Lottery were made worse and U.S. would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime countries which are doing badly".

In the event that you had any lingering doubts that President Donald Trump is a racist, it's time to throw away that uncertainty. I will not be diverted from all possible efforts to continue negotiating to stop the deportations.
