Trump partly denies, also defends vulgar immigrant comments

Yesterday, President Donald Trump referred to Haiti, El Salvador and African nations as "shithole countries".

President Trump is denying reports, from NPR and other news outlets, that in a Thursday meeting at the White House, he disparaged African nations as "shithole countries" and questioned why the United States would admit immigrants from them and other nations, like Haiti.

"This is like throwing gasoline to the fire", Representative Adriano Espaillat, a New York Democrat, said of Trump's reported language.

The president will only accept an immigration deal that adequately addresses the visa lottery system and chain migration-two programs that hurt our economy and allow terrorists into our country.

"I want to take a moment to talk about Haiti, one of the places the President of the United States called a "sh**hole country", Mr Cooper started his speech live on air. "We should have more people from Norway".

President Donald Trump on Friday denied using certain "language" during a private meeting with lawmakers as fury spread over his comments about immigrants. "But I'm not surprised he said that because not too long ago he said all Haitians have AIDS".

Solberg, whose office also declined to comment on Trump's remarks, is expected to announce soon an expansion of her cabinet to include Norway's Liberal Party, a centrist group that favours strong environmental policies and more immigration.

Democrat members of Congress said the remark clearly showed Mr Trump was racist. Former VP Joe Biden also had choice words about Trump's language, tweeting, "It's not what a president should believe".

Democratic Rep. Cedric Richmond of Louisiana, who chairs the Congressional Black Caucus, said the latest statement is "yet another confirmation of [Trump's] racially insensitive and ignorant views".

While Kalondo said the comments were "clearly" racist, she didn't believe they indicated a shift in the U.S. stance towards Africa.

We certainly agree, and we're sure that the millions of people President Trump insulted with his comments do, too.

"We want to be recognized as someone that is a part of American production", said Jean Garcon, who is an advisor for the Chamber.

Durbin added, "When the question was asked about Haitians ... he said, 'Hatians?" But do we really need to spray asterisk sanitizer on a word that 1) everyone knows; 2) is heard on regular cable TV; and 3) was a direct quote from the President of the United States?

"President Trump has been and is a racist".

Durbin said Graham immediately spoke up against Trump's comments, and he commended the Republican senator for doing so.
