Trump 'privately defends vulgar comments on immigration'

The group of over 50 nations in a statement said: "the AU expressed its disappointment and outrage over the unfortunate comment made by Mr Donald Trump, President of the United States of America".

Pierre Labossiere was aghast when, during immigration discussions in the Oval Office Thursday, President Donald Trump questioned why the USA should admit immigrants from Haiti and Africa, calling them "shithole countries". He also denied saying "anything derogatory about Haitians other than" that Haiti is "a very poor and troubled country". "We ask him to clarify why citizens of one country are "more desirable" than those of another and why the USA does 'not need more Haitians". "I have not read one of them that's inaccurate".

President Trump on Saturday argued Democrats are "doing nothing" toward crafting federal legislation that would permanently protect almost 800,000 young illegal immigrants, as the White House and congressional leader grapple over a solution ahead of a deadline next week. "Dems push for more money to fight opioids MORE [R-Wis.], who in my opinion, have been less and less vocal as time has progressed in denouncing Donald's behavior", he said.

Jean, who was born in the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince and is now secretary general of the Organisation internationale de la Francophonie, called Trump's reported remarks "insulting". "That's when he used these vile and vulgar comments, calling the nations they come from 'shitholes.' The exact word used by the president, not just once, but repeatedly", he said. Democrats are fighting for the continuation of DACA, which Mr. Trump wants to end. He wrote, "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used".

Ghana's President Nana Akufo-Addo on Saturday said Donald Trump's reported description of African nations as "shithole countries" was unacceptable, while his predecessor branded the U.S. head of state a racist.

Media reports said Trump used the offensive term when Senators Dick Durbin and Lindsey Graham reported to him on a newly-written immigration bill. "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!"

Trump's denial came among a series of other tweets in which he defended his immigration stance.

The president implied Friday morning on Twitter that maybe he should start recording meetings because there is no trust.

Saati, a member of the Republican Party, received Trump during his campaign visit to South Florida. The President wants funding for his election promise of building a wall on the U.S.'s southern border as part of any legislation on immigration reform. "The community of people without regard to race, class, culture or religion", said Judge Hatchett. "(Extended silence.) I can't say that".
