White House doc: Trump in 'excellent health'

White House doc: Trump in 'excellent health'

However, his advisers notably did not dispute the most controversial of his reported remarks: using the word "s**thole" to describe African nations, and saying he would prefer immigrants from countries like Norway instead. A Carson spokesperson didn't respond to a request for comment.

The controversial remarks have already prompted an angry response from other countries, namely Haiti, which reportedly summoned United States officials for an explanation.

"You can not dismiss entire countries and continents as "s***holes", whose entire populations who are not white, are therefore not welcome". But more than anything else for those not bothered by a long trail of hateful, despicable comments by Donald Trump is the simple fact, we once again, are witnessing another episode of the Trump administration and President Donald Trump, lying.

"Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?"

Thursday afternoon, reports surfaced that Donald Trump called Haiti and African nations "shithole countries", vocalizing his frustration about immigration.

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

The ambassadors did not consult their governments before issuing the resolution, he said, adding that some could now expect to receive phone calls from their capitals because of the text's strong tone. Friday night in Raleigh, African immigrants had plenty to say about the president.




"Given the historical reality of how many Africans arrived in the United States as slaves, this statement flies in the face of all accepted behavior and practice", AU spokeswoman Ebba Kalondo tells The Associated Press.

Whoa. I've never seen a statement like this by African countries directed at the United States.

"We were shocked to hear comments made by President Donald Trump", Marleine Bastien said. We are at a deal.

When it came to talk of extending protections for Haitians, Mr Durbin said the president replied: "We don't need more Haitians". Penn has been heavily involved in humanitarian work in Haiti, and his piece came on the eighth anniversary of the devastating 2010 natural disaster in the country.

Less than three hours later, Durbin and a Republican colleague, Senator Lindsey Graham, drove away from the White House with the deal in pieces and a controversy over offensive language about to reverberate worldwide.

On 8 January the Department of Homeland Security announced it was ending TPS status for around 200,000 Salvadorans.
