The African ambassadors issued the statement late Friday following an emergency meeting after Mr. Trump used vulgar language to reject an immigration bill, asking why the US would take in more people from Haiti and "sh*thole countries" in Africa. According to those briefed on the conversation, the president used the phrase * a href="http://abc7chicago.com/politics/trump-why-allow-immigrants-from-s***hole-countries/2930875/" *"s***hole countries" while questioning why the USA would accept more immigrants from Haiti and nations in Africa, rather than places like Norway.
"The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used". He is also a design engineer in the defense industry and a Haitian immigrant who says the portrayal of his country is offensive. It´s about opening the door wider to humanity´s worst side, about validating and encouraging racism and xenophobia that will potentially disrupt and destroy the lives of many people.
The comments, first reported Thursday by The Washington Post, were made during a presentation by Durbin and Republican Senator Lindsey Graham about bipartisan legislation to protect from deportation those immigrants who were illegally brought to the U.S.as children by their parents.

"The USA we know is one that was built with blood and sweat of African slaves and immigrants from all over". "I want to see the tape". In fact, this is what forms the core of Trump's presidency. "I'm Don Lemon. The president of the United States is racist", Lemon memorably stated blankly. On Friday, the Academy Award victor published an op-ed in Time, calling Trump's alleged comments about bringing in immigrants from "sh*thole" countries "disgraceful". "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!", the President tweeted.
"But we've got this flexible definition about what a racist is".
