African Union, African UN envoys demand Trump apology after vulgar comment

African Union, African UN envoys demand Trump apology after vulgar comment

Sir, - Donald Trump asks why America is taking in people from countries such as El Salvador, Haiti and African countries ("UN condemns reported Trump remarks on "s***hole countries" as "racist", World News, January 12th). "Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?" the President reportedly asked lawmakers, arguing that the USA should have more people coming from countries like Norway.

Though the White House flatly denied the report, given Trump's other colorful language to describe non-white foreigners, it certainly seems credible.

Trump tweeted Friday that he "never said anything derogatory about Haitians" and praised his relationship with people from the country.

Trump denied that he ever used the term "shithole countries" to describe Haiti, El Salvador and African nations, though he admitted using "tough" language in the meeting. "Why don't we get more people from Norway?'"

Al Sharpton may have won the award for reaching the pinnacle of hypocrisy in his attack on President Trump for his now infamous "sh*thole" comment. Richard Durbin of IL, the lone Democrat present in the Oval Office at the time, said Trump's denial was false and the president had said things that were "hate-filled, vile and racist". Never said 'take them out.' Made up by Dems. The President wants funding for his election promise of building a wall on the U.S.'s southern border as part of any legislation on immigration reform. "He said those hateful things". "There is a serious need for dialogue between the US Administration and the African countries". He revealed this during a meeting with congressional leaders in the Oval Office over immigration issues. "I want to see the tape".

The comments were said to have come after Trump met this week with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg in Washington.

"Trump is a disgusting racist, sexist sociopath and awful for the country", one Twitter user wrote.

He also highlighted the contrast between Trump's praise for Africa past year when he met leaders from the continent on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.

The president's first Twitter post Friday morning did not address the language he used, but instead called the immigration deal that would protect undocumented immigrants who arrived in the United States as children "a big step backwards". "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!"
