Ivana Trump says the US President is 'definitely not racist'

Ivana Trump says the US President is 'definitely not racist'

The organisers of the event urged all people of African descent and others to attend the rally to "reject the denigration President Trump uttered against us".

"First stop would be Osu Castle, Elmina Castle, and the over 40 Forts that detained about 30 million slaves, beaten and shipped out like sardine cans and then I will tell you the history of Africa and why people like you made that a "shithole" continent".

Donald Trump married his current wife, Melania, in 2005 and they have one son, Barron.

She, however, said the U.S. president's comments would not affect Namibia's bilateral relations with that country.

Social media users across the continent posted images of modern skylines and handsome nature from their countries with the hashtag "shithole".

"Senator Dicky Durbin totally misrepresented what was said at the DACA meeting", Trump tweeted, using a nickname to needle the IL senator.

Trump took particular issue with the idea that people who'd fled to the USA after disasters hit their homes in places such as El Salvador, Guatemala and Haiti would be allowed to stay as part of the deal, according to the people, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to publicly describe the discussion.

Trump allegedly said after being presented with a proposal to restore protection for immigrants from Africa and other countries.

The president on Sunday amid reports that he referred to some foreign countries - namely, Haiti, El Salvador and countries in Africa - as a "shithole" denied such remarks and said charges of racism against him were unfair.

"I'm telling you he did not use that word and I'm telling you it's a gross misrepresentation", Sen.

The White House has not denied that Trump said "s--hole" though Trump has already pushed back on some depictions of the meeting.

However, Trump had, while signing the proclamation for King's Day on Wednesday, said the late civil rights leader "dedicated his life to a vision: that all Americans would live free from injustice and enjoy equal opportunity as children of God".

"There is a serious need for dialogue between the US administration and the African countries". Never said "take them out". She said she has contacted the Namibian embassy in Washington to find out in what context Trump made the remarks, adding that she was still awaiting a response from them. "They are all talk and no action", Trump wrote on Twitter on January 13.

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

Trump said he is "ready and willing to make a deal" on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, but he doesn't believe Democrats want to reach an agreement.

Rand Paul was one of 11 candidates who were up against Trump during the 2016 Republican presidential primary.
