Haitian immigrants react to derogatory Trump comment

“Today, as you doubtless heard, during immigration talks, ” he said, “President Trump said something that nearly every single person in America actually agrees with - an bad lot of immigrants come to this country from other places that arent very nice.”.

Some acknowledged problems in their countries, but blamed this on their poor leaders as well as Western nations. He specifically denied saying "take them out", in reference to Haitian immigrants. "Yes, they will, but that's OK", Mr Goldstein said. They taught their children to do the same.

"This is how the forgotten men and women of America talk at the bar", he said. Durbin told reporters in Chicago. "The Dems will threaten "shutdown", but what they are really doing is shutting down our military, at a time we need it most".

Botswana also said it had summoned the U.S. ambassador to that country, Earl Miller, to "express its displeasure" and had asked Miller whether Botswana "is regarded as a "s**thole" country".

Clinton weighed in Friday afternoon, after Trump had been pummeled in the media for hours over having reportedly inveighed during an Oval Office meeting against immigrants from "s***hole countries" coming into the United States.

"Racism is not recognized under the law as reason for immigration policy", he said. "I called him a racist and pathological liar then".

There is not much more to say than what the president said himself. He ignored her, and she asked the same question again. "What's going on?" she said.

Congressional Black Caucus Chair Cedric Richmond and House Judiciary top Democrat Jerrold Nadler said they would seek to introduce a censure resolution against Trump next week.

Trump's comments were allegedly made on Thursday at a White House meeting with lawmakers on immigration reform.

Mr Trump was said to have told them that instead of granting temporary residency to citizens of countries hit by natural disasters, war or epidemics, the U.S. should instead be taking in migrants from countries like Norway.

The president's Twitter posts on Friday morning referred to the meeting with lawmakers a day earlier about the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, the Obama-era effort that provided temporary work permits and reprieves from deportation to immigrants brought to the United States as children by their parents. Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, who was in the meeting, said the reports were correct.

El Salvador President Salvador Sánchez Cerén said it has sent a formal letter of protest to the US Government, "also highlighting the value of Salvadorans and remembering there were compatriots who worked on the reconstruction of the Pentagon after the unfortunate terrorist attacks of 2001".

"This is even more hurtful given the historical reality of just how many Africans arrived in the United States as slaves, and also terribly surprising as the United States remains a massively positive example as just how migration can give birth to a nation", Ms Kalondo said. "Part of what makes America so special is that we welcome the best and brightest in the world, regardless of their country of origin", Hatch said in a tweet from his office.

The President has since denied the comments; however, following Trump's denial, Sen. But he attracts a disproportionate share of racists to support him.

Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch, who hailed Trump as a great president after passage of the tax cut, Tweeted Thursday: 'I look forward to getting a more detailed explanation regarding the President's comments.

He said Americans were celebrating that "self-evident truth" that "no matter what the colour of our skin or the place of our birth, we are all created equal by God".

Trump is loyal to those who like him, and those who like him like him because he says the things he "shouldn't". Want to assume hes still the hard-talking, tell-it-like-it-is guy youll always defend? The first is that it assumes Trumps base will uniformly support a racist comment, which is a disservice to those supporters.

Elisa Massimino, president and CEO of Human Rights First, called the president's reported remark "disgusting and disgraceful".
