African ambassadors to UN blast Trump remark as 'racist'

African ambassadors to UN blast Trump remark as 'racist'

Trump said on Twitter on Friday that he merely used "tough" language when discussing a new immigration bill with a group of USA senators.

In fiscal year 2016, 1.18 million people became legal permanent residents of the United States, according to data from the Department of Homeland Security.

This is not the first time Trump has rubbed Africans up the wrong way - he was widely derided previous year after he twice referred to Namibia as "Nambia". El Salvador and Haiti were specifically mentioned but his hateful comments were directed to Africa- yes- the entire continent of Africa!

The US President touted the delivery of F-52 jets to Norway, but they only exist in the video game Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. He also said Haiti should be left out of any immigration deal. III met with the then president-elect. Some conservative commentators pushed that narrative following the news. Mahama's tweet used an altered image of an Oval Office meeting featuring Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to mock that mistake. That's when he used these vile and vulgar comments, calling the nations they come from 'shitholes.' The exact word used by the President.

United Nations human rights spokesman Rupert Colville told reporters in Geneva that Trump's comments were "shocking and shameful". His racist comments about Mexicans being rapists, or removing a federal judge because was Mexican and "could not possibly be fair". It is scary to think that people would perceive us in a threatening fashion.

"He said these hate-filled things and he said them repeatedly", Durbin told reporters on Friday.

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.

Trump has denied using the expletive "sh**hole" and says he does not dislike Haitians. He wasnt comparing the economic output of African countries to Norways. "The solution to our current divisiveness does not live in the White House". Does this president reflect American values? It is the republican party- the party of Lincoln that abolished slavery, that he has turned into sh-hole.

"Mr. President, are you a racist?" she asked.

"The anniversary of the devastating quake 8 years ago is a day to remember the tragedy, honor the resilient people of Haiti, & affirm America's commitment to helping our neighbors", Hillary Clinton tweeted. It has always sparked fierce debates in the USA about whether to brand Trump as a racist and a xenophobe.

"As someone from South Shithole, Trevor is deeply offended by the president's remarks", US television programme The Daily Show wrote on Twitter, referring to its South Africa-born host Trevor Noah.

If my job is to report the truth - the truth is, what the president said was hurtful.

"He said: 'Put me down for wanting more Europeans to come to this country".

Yet another anecdote that reveals the president's nature should prompt a similar question among all Americans and especially those who have supported him.
