Botswana condemns disparaging remarks made by U.S. president

Botswana condemns disparaging remarks made by U.S. president

Republican senator Jeff Flake of Arizona tweeted: "The words used by the president, as related to me directly following the meeting by those in attendance, were not "tough", they were abhorrent and repulsive".

"For the first representative of the United States of America to speak in such a manner is quite troubling and offensive", Jean said in the statement. "I would want people from Nigeria, if they meet the requirements".

During the signing, the president praised the civil rights leader's "faith and love for humanity" while telling Americans "no matter what the color of our skin or the place of our birth, we are all created equal by God".

Anthony Scaramucci, whose brief tenure as White House communications director ended shortly after his expletive-filled comments about his administration colleagues appeared in The New Yorker, said Trump "is not a racist". I could tell you about my parents, how they came to this country with so many other Haitians, how they embraced the American dream and thrived, how I and so many first-generation Haitian-Americans are products of our parents' American dreams.

Trump's insults - along with his rejection of the bipartisan immigration deal drafted by six senators- also threatened to further complicate efforts to extend protections for hundreds of thousands of young immigrants, many of whom were brought to the country as children and now are here illegally.

Durbin said that's when he told Trump about the numbers of people who hold temporary protected status from various countries, including Haiti.

Trump's remarks about African countries and Haiti were ripped by 54 African ambassadors to the United Nations on January 13, 2018.

Trump addressed Haiti, but said nothing about his reported comments on Africa. "We need to take note of that".

Breaking with longstanding tradition against diagnosing public figures, some psychiatrists have said it is their duty to warn against the President's erratic behaviour.

Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) was not among the lawmakers in the White House meeting, but tweeted Friday that he heard about Trump's comments "directly following the meeting by those in attendance".

"Trump has courted evangelicals, some of whom have had access to him and his administration".

"The statement that he made is not from the entire America, it is from only one person", Charitable said.

Similar sentiments were expressed by other African leaders.

And he wrote: "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians".

In full damage control, Trump and the White House trashed Wolff and his book as fiction and tabloid garbage while defending the President's mental fitness. Farris has always been a prominent leader among conservative evangelical homeschool families.

Colville warns that comments by a major political figure, such as the president of the United States, can have damaging and unsafe consequences.

"But this was not the language I used", he added, apparently referencing the report of him saying "s--hole". This piece has been updated to include comments from Michael Farris.
