Paul Ryan calls Trump's 'sh*thole' comment 'very unfortunate' and 'unhelpful'

The UN diplomats met for an emergency session before issuing a joint statement to demand a "retraction and an apology" from the U.S. president. He added that he never said anything derogatory about Haitians. People from dozens of countries took their oaths of citizenship Friday in South Florida as news spread about their new president's alleged statement. Trump allegedly said in referrence to African countries and Haiti.

The president reportedly interrupted Durbin and made a derogatory comment about those immigrants, and suggested the US should bring in more people from places like Norway. Situations like this are undermining the United States' credibility around the world, alternately making it a laughing stock or a pariah.

He's president of the United States.

Roughly 13,000 of the state's immigrants came from Haiti and 5,600 people came from El Salvador.

"I condemn this unforgivable statement and this demeaning of the office of the Presidency", Baltimore Rep. Elijah E. Cummings said in a tweet.

"I must admit it really hurt when I heard that", said Crevecoeur.

Now, the question of whether we should be welcoming people from sh**hole countries, and, of those people, whether we should be welcoming those with education and skills, say grad students from middle-class families seeking to stay, or those who are dirt poor, and favored by the wealthy as their future nannies and elder caregivers, is another issue altogether. The exact word used by the president.

Senator Durbin, a member of the Democratic Party, was at the White House meeting on Thursday. When I mentioned that fact to him, he said, 'Haitians?

I am shocked by the words of President Trump on Haiti and Africa.

Those in the Cabinet Room when Trump made his comments, according to The New York Times, included Sens.

As the 16-day DreamWeek, which is now ongoing, is about respecting, listening and learning from each other, Nakpodia said he can't dismiss Trump's comment.

Republican Representative Mia Love, the country's first Haitian-American congresswoman, slammed the Trump's behaviour as "unacceptable from the leader of our nation".

The president implied Friday morning on Twitter that maybe he should start recording meetings because there is no trust. They never took a thing from our federal government.

Others used humour to ridicule the offensive comments. Eventually, he said, they opened a farm in Wisconsin after they raised enough money.

"I don't think the Present Trump is a racist in the traditional sense as we know in this country", Farris Jr. said.

Speaker Paul Ryan on Friday afternoon broke his silence and condemned President Trump's remark about "sh*thole countries" from a day earlier.

Over the past few months, Comey - who was sacked by Trump in May a year ago - has become the king of the subtweet on Twitter, frequently throwing shade at the president over the political news of the day.
