Norwegians decline President Donald Trump's offer to move to US

Norwegians decline President Donald Trump's offer to move to US

On Friday, the Republican president denied making the vulgar referenced during the meeting. Durbin maintains that he heard the comments firsthand, as do other sources.

NAKASEC joined other groups in calling for the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act to be attached to the federal budget vote, in lieu of a massive reform bill that would include cuts to other aspects of the USA immigration system.

Jean, a refugee from Haiti who came to Canada in 1968 and was raised in Thetford Mines, Que., also noted that Friday was the eighth anniversary of a devastating natural disaster that struck her native country, one of 57 member French-language countries - many from Africa - that form La Francophonie.

Tweeted Republican Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona: "The words used by the president, as related to me directly following the meeting by those in attendance, were not 'tough, ' they were abhorrent and repulsive".

Trump then suggested that the United States should instead bring more people from countries such as Norway, whose prime minister he met with Wednesday.

"Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?"

The two men said they "do not recall the President saying those comments specifically" but also didn't deny he said them.

The Associated Press reported Friday that the Haitian government condemned Trump's reported migration comment as a "racist view of the Haitian community".

"As a junior foreign service officer, I signed an oath to serve faithfully the president and his administration in an apolitical fashion, even when I might not agree with certain policies", he wrote.

"Anytime you can have what's actually said in all of its vulgarity, I think that would be better", Norman said. A little later, when the group was discussing the visa lottery program, and African immigrants were mentioned, the president asked, why Africa? Not more - not just once, but repeatedly.

'I was very proud of him.

Trump previously told Haitian-Americans: "I really want to be your greatest champion, and I will be your champion", while he was campaigning previous year in Miami's Little Haiti.

An adviser to Pope Francis and the leader of the Archdiocese of Boston, which is home to a large number of Haitian Catholics, also expressed concern about the rhetoric being used in the immigration debate-though he did not call out the president by name. "That was the nature of this conversation".

"Following comments by the President, I said my piece directly to him yesterday". "They reinforce abhorrent racist attitudes, and evidence of the lack of knowledge, understanding, and empathy we expect of the person who occupies the highest office in the land". I want to stop the massive inflow of drugs.

In a statement Friday, the National Korean American Service & Education Consortium (NAKASEC), which held events to help DACA applicants process their paperwork, said, "It is unacceptable that the president of the United States would attack a bipartisan effort with his racist, xenophobic, and ill-informed language and beliefs". "I've always believed that America is an idea, not definied by its people but by its ideals".

Durbin said in his statement Friday that he and others in his bipartisan group will continue pressing for a DACA deal.
