Haitian-Americans in South Florida outraged by president's alleged remark

Haitian-Americans in South Florida outraged by president's alleged remark

Former President Bill Clinton responded Friday to President Trump's reported comments questioning why the USA was accepting immigrants from "s--hole" countries, allegedly made in reference to Haiti and some countries in Africa and Central America.

President Trump has since denied using such vulgar language, tweeting that 'the language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used. He suggested in a statement Friday that the president had said something questionable, but Graham did not directly say Trump had used the term "sh-hole" to describe African countries. Dick Durbin, who was at the White House meeting, said Friday that the president "said these hate-filled things and he said them repeatedly".

The Vatican newspaper on Friday branded US President Donald Trump's reported comments about African countries and Haiti as "particularly harsh and offensive".

The African Union said in its statement that while it condemn Trump's remark, maintaining a dialogue with the president was necessary to help him better understand their continent. Do we need more Haitians?' Then he went on and started to describe the immigration from Africa that was being protected in this bipartisan measure.

Trump's denial came among a series of other tweets in which he defended his immigration stance. "If he said it, he has to apologize, but if he did not say it, I think The Washington Post should apologize".




Trump denied he ever said "anything derogatory" about the people of Haiti.

The African Union, representing all 55 nations in the continent, has demanded that Donald Trump apologise for his alleged "sh**hole countries" remarks.

Despite the claims by Trump that he never made the comments, at least one lawmaker present in the meeting has insisted the president did make the "s********" comment. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians.

Mr Trump's comments were decried as racist by African and Haitian politicians, by the United Nations human rights office and by USA lawmakers from both major parties.

Around 700,000 people are now enrolled in the DACA program, which allows enrollees to live and work in the US for two-year periods. Instead, she said, the country has been subjected to Trump's ire. The statement also noted that the president wanted immigrants who "contribute" and can "assimilate".
