African ambassadors to UN blast Trump remark as 'racist'
Jan 14 2018 by Desiree Burns
According to the National Post, Trump, while speaking to supporters privately, said that he was "only expressing what many people think but won't say about immigrants from economically depressed countries". David Perdue, Republicans who've been close allies to the President on the issue of immigration, were also in the meeting but issued a carefully worded statement after Trump tweeted Friday morning that the description of his remarks was not accurate.
"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. "I'm sorry, but there's no other word one can use but racist". I understand how powerful they are.
Ryan's search for something to "change the dynamic" comes just hours after Trump ignored her questions at the White House on Friday. "You have seen the comments in the press".
"The African Union Mission wishes to express its infuriation, disappointment and outrage over the unfortunate comment made by Mr. Donald Trump", the union said. It is not true. At that same meeting, he also complained that Nigerian immigrants who come to the United States would never want to "go back to their huts". "The largest group's El Salvadoran, the second is Honduran and the third is Haitian". I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians. He said that Trump and Carson, the lone African-American member of the Cabinet, were talking about the fallout from Thursday's vulgar remarks when Trump turned to him and said, "I am not the person that the media is making me out to be". Friday night in Raleigh, African immigrants had plenty to say about the president. "That was the nature of this conversation". African-Americans believe they migrated to America in chains and when you talk about 'chain migration, ' it hurts them personally. Robert Chiponda, a communications consultant in Lusaka, said he never took Trump seriously.

Rees-Mogg a Joke or a new Leader?
Despite all the critics around him, Rees-Mogg is making big steps in the race using all the scandals around him as extra scores. Conservative thinking in its very hard right determination is making his person attractive for the UK conservative fans.
The Haitian government says in a statement that "these insulting and reprehensible statements in no way reflect the virtues of wisdom, restraint and discernment that must be cultivated by any high political authority".
The White House initially did not deny that Trump made the remarks, but Trump later disputed the reports on Twitter. First, he insisted his senseless wall be part of an immigration deal and now Trump is spouting vile profanities about Haitian and African immigrants from the Oval Office.
He also denied demanding that Haitians be removed from negotiations about protected status for people from certain countries.
Anthony Scaramucci, whose brief tenure as White House communications director ended shortly after his expletive-filled comments about his administration colleagues appeared in The New Yorker, said Trump "is not a racist".
