S--HOLE COUNTRIES’ President Trump is under fire for comments on immigrants from Haiti El Salvador and African nations. According to reports Trump asked ‘Why are we having all these people from s--hole countries come here

After an emergency session to weigh Trump's remarks, the African Group of United Nations ambassadors said it was "concerned at the continuing and growing trend from the U.S. administration toward Africa and people of African descent to denigrate the continent and people of color".

Mr Trump described El Salvador, Haiti and certain African nations as "shithole" countries during a meeting with lawmakers at the White House on Thursday.

The immigration law reforms - offered by a group of Republican and Democratic senators - include a proposal to let immigrant adults brought to the USA as children stay. I've not read one of them that's inaccurate.

Trump lashed out Thursday about a potential deal on immigration that includes protections for Haitians and for people from some African nations.

In 2009 Trump's predecessor, Barack Obama, chose Ghana's capital Accra to set out his foreign policy goals for Africa in a speech in which he said he saw Africa "as a fundamental part of our interconnected world".

Botswana's government called the president's remark "racist".

His comments drew a chorus of condemnation inside the United States and internationally, especially in Africa.

The ANC is not in a position to stop any president from any country from saying anything they wish, she said.

President Akufo-Addo tweeted that Trump's reported language was "extremely unfortunate", adding: "We are certainly not "a shithole country".

The Botswanan government condemned President Donald Trump's purported remarks referring to African countries "shitholes", prompting some viewers to question whether a statement ostensibly issued by that country and spread via social media was real.

Democratic senator Dianne Feinstein called the comments "beneath the dignity of the presidency" and said Mr Trump's desire to see more immigrants from countries like Norway was "an effort to set this country back generations by promoting "a homogeneous, white society".

He has since denied using the reported language. "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!".

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

"I can not believe that in the history of the White House, in the Oval Office, any president has ever spoken words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday", Durbin told reporters. And for all of you who over the last few years who have uttered that exhausted, lazy, uninformed, uneducated, ignorant, response of calling me and others who point out racist behavior "racist"?

Members of his own Republican party have also distanced themselves from Trump's comments.

"Following comments by the President, I said my piece directly to him yesterday".
