S.Africa, Nigeria summon United States diplomats on Trump comments

The denial late Sunday came three days after Trump was quoted as calling African nations and Haiti "shithole countries", setting off a storm of condemnation that threatened to derail a bipartisan compromise on immigration.

During an Oval Office meeting on immigration Thursday, Trump expressed frustration with people coming to the United States from countries in Africa and elsewhere, sources told CNN.

"I don't think Donald's racist at all", she said during an appearance on "Good Morning Britain".

On the President's Schedule-Trump has spent the weekend at Mar-a-Lago, and he will return to the White House Monday evening. Still, Bennet added, "there's no question what [the president] said was racist" and that "this is a trying time in our country".

South African politicians have reacted with disbelief regarding the remarks. Africa is united in its affirmation of the dignity of the people of Africa and the African diaspora.

The bulk of Trump's campaign was built around his hard stance toward immigration, as well as a proposed border wall between the US and Mexico. We had to leave the country because of our political beliefs. As the economy steadily improves for African Americans, this creates new opportunities that many have not been able to take advantage of due to prior lack of employment. But he wondered "why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?"

"They will have to work extra hard to send that message right now, but that's part of their responsibility. They don't want to stop drugs, and they want to take money away from our military, which we can not do", Trump said, referring to the Democrats seeking a deal on DACA.

Trump also repeated his claim that Democrats are standing in the way of a deal on DACA.

It provides clients with access to retail units in shopping centers, retail warehouses, shops, and other regional properties. After $0.01 actual EPS reported by JUST EAT plc for the previous quarter, Wall Street now forecasts 1,200.00% EPS growth.

Trump insisted in a tweet on Friday that he "never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country". I did about 200 cataract surgeries with a group of surgeons in Haiti, and the same in Central America, and when we asked Donald J. Trump as a private citizen to support those trips, he was a large financial backer of both medical mission trips.

The AU swiftly condemned the statement as racist and demanded an apology.

Namibia, Botswana and Ghana are some of the African countries that have issued strong statement condemning Mr Trump.

The envoys released a joint statement Friday after an emergency meeting was held to address the issue. "It also reinforces the concerns that we hear every day, that the President's slogan Make America Great Again is really code for Make America White Again".

A source familiar with the meeting later told CNN's Jake Tapper the President did not refer to Haiti as a "s***hole" but Trump did ask why the USA needs more Haitians and pushed to "take them out" of an immigration deal.

"First, [they may focus on] economic trade ties between the United States and Africa", Samir said.

"I know what was said", he said. "I've not read one of them that's inaccurate".
