Donald Trump: I am not a racist

"█ SA summons USA envoy to explain comment South Africa summoned the United States" senior diplomat in the capital Pretoria on Monday over President Donald Trump's recent disparaging comments about African nations and Haiti. Trump was asked by a reporter as he visited his Trump International Golf Club in unincorporated West Palm Beach for dinner Sunday night with House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif. "I'm the least racist person you'll interview".

Despite a long list of comments since he began his campaign to become the U.S. president that are arguably racist, Trump repeatedly said Monday that he is the least racist person anyone has ever met, his oft-stated mantra in the wake of the regular allegations of racism.

But Democratic Senator Dick Durbin, who attended the lawmakers' meeting, said that "shithole" was the "exact word used by the president, not just once but repeatedly".

When Trump was asked on Sunday if he considered that the comments had made it hard to obtain an immigration agreement, Trump responded: "Have you seen what several senators said about my comments?"

The Homeland Security secretary, Kirstjen Nielsen, who also sat in on the meeting, said on "Fox News Sunday" that she could not recall the president "saying that exact phrase".

Trump denied making the remarks on Friday, but Sen. The pro-Trump Breitbart News was among those running an account of Lowry's remarks.

Multiple senators of both parties confirmed or suggested Friday that Trump used those words. Murphy said the poem "defines America for me, and I think for many of us".

Mr Trump has said he would end DACA, and his Twitter comments came as lawmakers worked on a bipartisan compromise on immigration policy. Our AU Presidents must respond strongly to this insult.

UN Human Rights Spokesman Rupert Colville said at a press conference in Geneva: "There is no other word that can be used but racist, you cannot label entire countries and continents as "shit-holes". "Take them out", he said, according to The Washington Post.

"We're ready, willing and able to make a deal on DACA", Trump said, referring to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals that protects immigrants brought to the United States illegally as children. He tweeted earlier on Sunday that the existing program would "probably" be discontinued.

"We have a lot of sticking points but they're all Democrat sticking points", he continued. "The Democrats are the ones that aren't going to make a deal".
