United Nations says Trump slur on 's…hole' countries is 'racist'

13 January 2018, 05:50 | Erica Roy

US President Donald Trump has sparked outrage after he was reported to have used crude language to describe foreign countries in an Oval Office meeting. "They're shithole countries. We should have more people from Norway". He pointed to Trump's 2015 comments on Mexican immigrants, who Trump said are "rapists" and bringing drugs and crimes to the U.S.

Mr Trump appeared to deny that he used vulgar language to describe immigrants from Africa and other regions on Friday, saying in a tweet: "the language used by me... was tough, but this was not the language used".

"If this report is true, it is absolutely wrong to say or think this".

"Following comments by the President, I said my piece directly to him yesterday". "I represent Florida, and we are an unbelievable melting pot where over 250 languages are spoken". "But I'm not surprised he said that because not too long ago he said all Haitians have AIDS".

Mr Durbin added, "When the question was asked about Haitians. he said, 'Haitians?"

Trump said he did not say "anything derogatory" about Haitians and appeared to deny calling any countries "shitholes", as was reported, generating a worldwide backlash. Trump met this week with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg.

The comments by Sen.

Durbin is part of a bipartisan group of six senators who announced Thursday the framework of a compromise on immigration.

Siplin's district includes Orlando's tourist district, where many Haitian immigrants are employed.


Separately, Durbin told reporters he had not seen a single news report about the President's words that was false. "The president invited us to - at his little get-together in the Cabinet room - to come up with proposals, and we did". I know I sound insane. However, we can not sacrifice one group of immigrants for another.

The pact also includes restrictions on immigrants' abilities to bring relatives to the U.S. and termination of a visa lottery system that has helped gain entry for people from African and other diverse countries.

Georgia Sen. David Perdue and Arkansas Sen. Bob Goodlatte, Kevin McCarthy and Mario Diaz-Balart were also at the Trump meeting on Thursday.

Graham and Durbin laid out the details of their proposed legislation.

"Wall was not properly funded, Chain & Lottery were made worse and United States of America would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime countries, which are doing badly".

"We can now say with 100% confidence that the president is a racist who does not share the values enshrined in our Constitution".

Responding to the remarks, AU spokeswoman Ebba Kalondo reminded Trump that many Africans "arrived in the USA as slaves", adding that Trump's profane statement "flies in the face of all accepted behaviour and practice". Botswana's Ministry of International Affairs condemned the remarks about Africa as "racist", and summoned the US Ambassador to complain, the ministry said in a statement.

Trump came under fire in August 2017 for failing to forcefully condemn a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, which resulted in clashes and the death of a counter-protester. We have been working for four months and have reached an agreement in principle that addresses border security, the diversity visa lottery, chain migration/family reunification, and the Dream Act--the areas outlined by the President.
