Trump in 'excellent health', says doctor after medical exam

Trump in 'excellent health', says doctor after medical exam

Among those condemning the comments were Hatian-American Republican Rep. Mia Love of Utah, who called the reported comments "unkind, divisive [and] elitist" and demanded that Trump apologize to Americans and nations he so 'wantonly maligned'.

During a closed-door meeting to discuss the proposal, Trump reportedly questioned why the US would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa. Likewise, the Vatican described Trump's comments as "particularly harsh and offensive".

In a tweet, Trump said: "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used".

After reports emerged that the president used the discriminatory, crass language to express his distaste for offering protections to Haitian and El Saldavorian immigrants (as well as immigrants from certain African countries), he faced widespread backlash.

Despite Trump's denial, one of the sponsors of the DACA deal who was present at the meeting, Senator Dick Durbin (D-Illinois), insisted the United States president indeed referred to the countries in question as "s***holes" multiple times during the gathering.

Francois came to Orlando from Haiti in 1983 and says to hear what President Trump said about her country hurt.

Kehrnde Isa who has a masters degree and is of Nigerian origin says those who agree with President Trump's remarks are mistaken. At least one more African leader spoke up on Saturday.




Others used humour to ridicule the offensive comments.

Trump took particular issue with the idea that people who had fled to the United States after disasters hit their homes in places such as El Salvador, Guatemala and Haiti would be allowed to stay as part of the deal.

The statement further said that Botswana wants clarification from Trump if he also included Botswana as "shithole" country regarding that they are Botswana nationals residing in the USA and that some U.S. residents may wish to visit Botswana.

The Haitian government says in a statement that "these insulting and reprehensible statements in no way reflect the virtues of wisdom, restraint and discernment that must be cultivated by any high political authority". "Forgetting that it was people from sh*thole countries who built this country". He also noted the insensitivity of its timing, coming the same week as the eighth anniversary of Haiti's 2010 natural disaster, which killed more than 200,000 people.

President Trump has asked Congress for $18-B for the first phase of The Wall, for which Mexican officials have said they will not pay. Made up by Dems. "But I've never met a Haitian who isn't strong".

Again on Twitter today, Trump suggested he "probably should record future meetings". "I don't think it makes it impossible, but I suspect the Democrats are sitting there going, 'Why would we want to compromise with him on anything?'"

According to the Washington-based news website, AU said that Trump's remarks "dishonour the celebrated American creed and respect for diversity and human dignity".
