I Am Not A 'Racist', Says Donald Trump

I Am Not A 'Racist', Says Donald Trump

The row broke out after Republican and Democratic lawmakers visited the president in the Oval Office on Thursday to work on a proposal for an immigration deal. I'm not a racist.

"I am the least racist person you have ever interviewed", said Mr Trump, who wanted to temporarily ban Muslims from entering the United States, questioned President Barack Obama's birthplace, called Mexicans "rapists" and criminals and who still wants to build a border wall with Mexico.

When asked Monday afternoon if he regrets calling out Mr. Trump, the minority whip responded, "No, I don't".

What did the president allegedly say?

The controversy stems from sensitive negotiations on immigration between the president and both parties.

In the same week that he honored King by making a national park out of the ground where King was born and preached until his death, Trump denigrated practically the entire African diaspora, and left many Americans headed into the civil rights icon's birthday convinced that the leader of their country is a racist.

When it came to talk of extending protections for Haitians, Durbin said Trump replied, "We don't need more Haitians'".

The group "is concerned at the continuing and growing trend from the United States administration towards Africa and people of African descent to denigrate the continent and people of color", it said.

"The Africa we know and live in is one that is recovering economically and rising", it added.

Who backed up the claims? To no surprise, the president started tweeting this morning denying that he used those words.

The Post added that Trump said he would prefer if the U.S. accepted more immigrants from Norway, which is predominantly white.

On Friday, after the alleged comment prompted a media storm, Botswana's government summoned its ambassador to the United States to ask whether Botswana was considered "a shithole".

Senator David Perdue said the reported slur was a "gross misrepresentation".

Meanwhile, the government funding deadline is Friday, and Paul said he had thought the immigration debate would be settled separately from the spending issue.

Republican Lindsey Graham says he immediately confronted the president about his use of the word.

"Following comments by the president, I said my piece directly to him yesterday".

Speaking to reporters Monday, Durbin said, "I don't know that changing the word from "hole" to "house" changes the impact", according to video posted by a WBEZ reporter.

Trump denied being racist, too.

What has the reaction been? .

Zimbabwe has denounced the United States President Donald Trump's alleged utterances describing African states as "shithole" countries. "I am the least racist person you have ever interviewed", he said.

One thing that can't be rationalized by the raw numbers here: The course of history and the current plight of numerous "shithole" countries is at least partly a effect of US foreign policies, that the position of relative economic superiority of the U.S.is partly an outcome of these policies, and that this above all might imply a moral obligation on the part of the USA when deciding who to let in and from where. Some have accused the president of racism.
