African countries unite at UN against Trump slur

The Government of Botswana is wondering why President Trump, must use this descriptor and derogatory word, when talking about countries with whom the USA has had cordial and mutually beneficial bilateral relations for so many years.

Two days after President Donald Trump described African nations, along with Haiti and El Salvador, as "shithole countries" with undesirable emigrants for the United States, the president of Ghana called the language "extremely unfortunate" and said his nation was not a "shithole country". He added that he never said anything derogatory about Haitians.

"So while we were preparing to be having a press conference in remembrance of the half a million people who lost their lives-countless displaced", Jacquet says, "we're addressing the degrading, demoralizing, disgusting remarks by someone who is supposed to be the face of our great nation". "I have not read one of them that's inaccurate". The legislation would provide a pathway to citizenship for so-called Dreamers, undocumented immigrants who came to the children, but would also incorporate other border and internal security provisions to try to appease Republicans. "Dems push for more money to fight opioids MORE [R-Wis.], who in my opinion, have been less and less vocal as time has progressed in denouncing Donald's behavior", he said.

Botswana's government called the president's remark "racist".

"If confirmed these are shocking and shameful comments from the president of the United States", Coleville said. "That's when he used these vile and vulgar comments, calling the nations they come from 'shitholes.' The exact word used by the president, not just once, but repeatedly", he said.

"I don't believe the Democrats really want to see a deal on DACA", he wrote at 9:20 am. The president insisted on Twitter Friday that he didn't use that language.

Hillary Clinton accused President Trump of holding "ignorant, racist views" on Friday, after media reports surfaced that the president decried immigration from "shithole countries" like Haiti, El Salvador and African nations, The Hill reports. The president said he has a wonderful relationship with Haitians and suggested future meetings probably should be recorded.

Haiti and Botswana summoned United States ambassadors to explain the comments reportedly made at a White House meeting as part of an attempt by Republicans and Democrats to protect from deportation 700,000 children brought to the USA illegally as children.

"I use those words advisedly", he goes on, "I understand how powerful they are".

Durbin said Graham immediately spoke up against Trump's comments, and he commended the Republican senator for doing so. We hear you loud and clear, Mr. President. "(Extended silence.) I can't say that".
