Donald Trump unapologitically defends his remark about Africa, Haiti

Donald Trump unapologitically defends his remark about Africa, Haiti

As in, agreeable to anything: He actually said at one point that he would sign whatever immigration bill the assembled legislators managed to pass.

He said "it could have been a compliment and a nice sending off for Erna Solberg as a trusted U.S. partner", Heldahl said.

So, Trump's dismissal of a large portion of the world is framed now as an argument for merit-based immigration?

In bluntly vulgar language, President Donald Trump questioned Thursday why the U.S. would accept more immigrants from Haiti and countries in Africa rather than places like Norway, as he rejected a bipartisan immigration deal, according to people briefed on the extraordinary Oval Office conversation.

On Friday, Haitians in Miami marked the eighth anniversary of the country's devastating 7.0 earthquake with a news conference condemning Trump's denigrating remarks, before a march to commemorate the disaster, which killed more than 300,000. And although it's pricey, the country last year was named the happiest on Earth. He believes it stems from people considering it a fixed identity, when that's not necessarily the case.

Asked about the remarks, White House spokesman Raj Shah did not deny them. The young people are human beings, not commodities, he said. The New York Times has reached out to each of their offices.

The group demanded "a retraction of the comment as well as an apology, not only to the Africans but to all people of African descent around the globe".

The organization said in a statement: "There is a huge misunderstanding of the African continent and its people by the current Administration". Isn't Trump demonstrating that he's nothing but a racist and pursuing a policy of 'Make America White Again'? On Monday, the department took that same action against immigrants from El Salvador, another country reportedly mentioned at an immigration meeting Thursday.

Globally, at least two American envoys overseas - in Haiti and Botswana - were summoned to explain the president's remarks.

Trump's comments are extremely offensive to South Africa, said Jessie Duarte, a senior official with the ruling African National Congress. "Ours is not a shithole country".

Ignoring shouted questions about the mounting firestorm over race, the president paid tribute during a ceremony to the reverend's "peaceful crusade for justice and equality".

Parsing the President's comments does little to mitigate their damage, critics said. They made the American dream come alive in the world.

Why are other Republicans not speaking out, but so quick to call everyone else unpatriotic?

Republican Senator Tom Cotton and Republican Representative Bob Goodlatte were both there, as was White House aide Stephen Miller, a proponent of severely limiting immigration.

Despite growing claims of mental instabilityand speculation, President Donald Trump was given a clean #Bill Of Health this week at the Walter Reed Medical Center.

Let's stop kidding ourselves. Without it, they say, the U.S. would lose a critical tool used in the fight against terrorism, espionage, nuclear proliferation and cyberattacks. "Instead, we're subjected to Trump's ignorant, racist views of anyone who doesn't look like him". "I will not be diverted from all possible efforts to continue negotiating to stop the deportations".
