Sen. Dick Durbin said he"personally heard President Trump speak the"hate-filled words

A JAN. 9 2017

In Haiti, on the eighth anniversary of a devastating quake that killed about 220,000 people, the government also summoned the top U.S. diplomat for an explanation, while the Haitian ambassador to Washington called for an apology.

'Instead, we're subjected to Trump's ignorant, racist views of anyone who doesn't look like him'.

The group "is concerned at the continuing and growing trend from the U.S. administration towards Africa and people of African descent to denigrate the continent and people of color", it said.

"The president has not apologized", Lemon said in his opening commentary.

"He said these hateful things and he said them repeatedly", Durbin said.

"Ours is not a shithole country and neither is Haiti or any other country in distress", Jessie Duarte, the deputy secretary general of South Africa's ruling African National Congress told reporters at a news conference in East London.

"As someone from South Shithole, Trevor is deeply offended by the president's remarks", USA television programme The Daily Show wrote on Twitter, referring to its South Africa-born host Trevor Noah.

Mr Trump on Friday tweeted that his language he used at the private meeting with lawmakers to discuss immigration legislation had been "tough".


But in another tweet on Friday the president denied that he insulted Haitians. They are doing nothing to fix DACA.

Trump, at a Tuesday meeting with lawmakers, had.

David Perdue (R-GA) - who, like Trump, have advocated for not only ending illegal immigration but also reducing legal immigration to raise Americans' wages - said in a joint statement that they "do not recall" the president making the statements.

Yesterday, no White House spokesperson confirmed or deny the allegations.

Biden's former Senate colleague Durbin came back to confront the president on the record.

The statement concludes, "The African Union Mission condemns the comments in the strongest terms and demands a retraction of the comment as well as an apology to not only to the Africans but to all of people of African descent around the globe".

Kang said he's willing to take the president's word unless there's a recording proving otherwise. She said the fight over immigration reform is turning ugly and seems to counter everything she learned about America in school. The President should not denigrate other countries'.

This being the same John Lewis who skipped Trump's inauguration because he didn't see him as "a legitimate president". Part of what makes America so special is that we welcome the best and brightest in the world, regardless of their country of origin'.
