Trump Decries Immigrants From 'Sh*thole Countries' Coming To US

Botswana on Friday officially asked the U.S. ambassador whether Donald Trump considers the nation a "s***hole" country, describing the American president's disparaging comments about African countries "reprehensible and racist".

The UN too criticised the remarks as "shocking and shameful" and "racist". Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., announced that a bipartisan group of six senators was close to a deal on extending President Barack Obama's 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, known as DACA, that provides legal status to almost 700,000 undocumented immigrants who came into the United States as children. We get the message loud and clear. On Friday, Trump appeared to deny making the comments, saying that "tough" language was used, but not that specific combination.

When Haiti was discussed he added: "Why do we need more Haitians?"

Christopher Cantwell, a white supremacist organizer who is being charged with assaulting counter-protesters in Charlottesville, praised Trump's comments on Gab, a social network that caters to online racists. Instead spokesman Raj Shah said in a statement, "Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people".

The White House did not deny the comment, which has been confirmed by other USA media, the BBC reports.

"There has not been a deal reached yet", said White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

The White House has not denied the language, nor have the several Republican lawmakers in the meeting.

Singer-songwriter John Legend called for a "multi-racial anti-racist coalition to defeat" Mr Trump.

The president also offered some insight into the proposed immigration deal.

However, the New York Times reported in December that during a June meeting the president had said Haitians "all have Aids".

"I look forward to getting a more detailed explanation regarding the president's comments".

As an alternative, he helpfully suggested, we could bring people in from Norway (a nation fresh in mind since he had just met with its leaders earlier this week). "The president must apologize to both the American people and the nations he so wantonly maligned".

But one advantage of basing his presidency on a narrow political base rather than reaching out in an effort to unify the nation is that the wounds he can inflict to his own standing are limited.

But he also wrote "this was not the language used", an apparent denial, although it was unclear to what language he was referring.

"The world is witnessing a new low today with this #ShitholeNations remark! totally unacceptable! uncalled for moreover it shows a lack a respect and IGNORANCE never seen before in the recent history of the USA by any President!" She said the president's remark was "obviously disheartening" but presented an opportunity "to rise above it and say, 'I'm going to be an example of kindness, of compassion'". "I will give them better".

"Why do we want all these people from Africa here?"
