Evangelical rift intensifies over Trump immigration remarks

Evangelical rift intensifies over Trump immigration remarks

The African Union Mission to Washington says United States president Donald Trump, who called Haiti and Africa "shithole" countries, should withdraw the remarks, which dishonor the celebrated American creed and respect for diversity and human dignity.

"I don't think he means that to be a real insult", said Trump supporter Richard Dolezal. "I'm the least racist person you have ever interviewed". "I expect that our assistance programmes would continue pretty much as they are", Jackson told Joy News.

A statement from Raj Shah, a deputy White House press secretary, did not deny that Trump made the comments.

"Did you see what various senators in the room said about my comments?" he asked.

On Monday, the department took that same action against immigrants from El Salvador, another country reportedly mentioned at an immigration meeting Thursday. Trump used profane language January 11 as he questioned why the USA should permit immigrants from certain countries, according to three people briefed on the conversation.

In a facebook post Sunday morning, Hassan Ayariga said "the language used by the U.S president Donald Trump to describe African countries is very fortunate. The President and all those attending the meeting know what I said and how I feel", Graham said in a statement. "Why don't we get more people from Norway?". Lindsey Graham of SC were mistaken in indicating that was the case.

While demanding a "retraction and an apology" from Trump, the 54 countries also thanked those Americans "from all walks of life who have condemned the remarks".

Just emerging from highly contested elections, there has been no official reaction from the Government of Liberia but few African countries, including Botswana and Ghana weighed in their frustration on President Trumps unfavorable comment about Africa as "shithole" countries.

The Utah Republican also told CNN "State of the Union" host Jake tapper that she considers the comments to have been racist. Never said "take them out".

He blamed Democrats for failing to reach a deal on DACA, the Obama-era policy that offers protection for children who were brought to the US illegally.

Trump later tweeted that the language he used was tough, but not the language being reported.

In a Twitter message Friday, the Mr Mahama accused Mr Trump of pursuing a policy of making America "White Again" instead of "Great Again". I think they were unfortunate.

Mr Trump said there were "a lot of sticking points, but they are all Democratic sticking points".
