Trump's comments on immigration vulgar - and racist | Letters

In a meeting with a group of senators, Trump had questioned why the USA would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa as he rejected a bipartisan immigration deal, according to one participant and people briefed on the remarkable conversation.

The African Union, a group representing the continent's countries, and African ambassadors to the United Nations, sharply denounced US President Donald Trump's reference to African nations as "shitholes" and called on him to retract his statement and apologize.

Trump suggested the United States should instead focus its immigrant entry policy on countries such as Norway. Dick Durbin, who was at the White House meeting, said Friday that the President "said these hate-filled things and he said them repeatedly".

In comments to reporters later, Trump attempted to shift blame for the failure to reach a deal onto Democrats, whom he accused of failing to negotiate in good faith.

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

Al Jazeera's Kimberly Halkett, reporting from Washington, DC, said: "The calls for the president to apologise for his remarks are intensifying inside and outside the U.S., but for now, that apology does not appear likely".

President Trump said Sunday that he is "not a racist" and denied that he had used the term "shithole countries" to describe Haiti and some African nations. "I want to stop the massive inflow of drugs...".

With Friday being the eight year anniversary of the catastrophic natural disaster in Haiti, Jacques says it brings the conversation full circle - knowing many link those images of destruction and devastation, labeling the country, but he says it won't limit them.

In the United States, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) described Trump's comments as "a low mark for this president" and "a low point for our nation".

Efforts to extend the program were further complicated because it could make a funding bill to avert a government shutdown due Friday more hard. "They have come a long way in 8 years, but much work remains and I still believe in the Haitian people". "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately no trust". "The community of people without regard to race, class, culture or religion", said Judge Hatchett.

The controversy sparked a strong backlash, both in the U.S. and internationally, with Trump's opponents accusing him of flat-out racism, and countries he allegedly insulted demanding explanation and apologies.

"Dr. King challenged us to talk about the community".
