Trump language on Africa unacceptable, racist: Ghana

Trump language on Africa unacceptable, racist: Ghana

The Associated Press, however, reported that Trump privately defended the alleged comment, arguing it wasn't racist but "straightforward".

The Washington Post Thursday broke a story that Trump used the expletive during bipartisan talks with lawmakers discussing legislation to protect immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and Africa. Richard Durbin, the Senate's second-ranking Democrat, appeared to confirm those reports on Friday.

At their Oval Office meeting, two sources said, Trump questioned the value of taking immigrants from Haiti and African nations, and referred to them as "shithole countries".

The president said at the White House that "love was central" to the slain civil rights leader.

The African Union said the "remarks dishonour the celebrated American creed and respect for diversity and human dignity".

But Republican Del. Pat McDonough tells WJZ Trump isn't the only president to use rough language in the White House, and he supports the president on immigration.

Trump is quoted to have said: "Why do we want all these people from Africa here?"

"He said, 'Haitians. Do we need more Haitians?' Then he went on and started to describe the immigration from Africa that was being protected in this bipartisan measure". "Ours is not a shithole country, neither is Haiti or any other country in distress, " said Jesse Duarte, the ANC's Deputy Secretary-General. In a private meeting in June of previous year, Mr. Trump said immigrants from Haiti "all have AIDS".

Donald Trump has been forced to deny calling Central American and African nations "s***holes", as he is branded a "racist" and faces fierce backlash. Sorry, but there is no other word one can use but "racist".

Orange County Commissioner Victoria Siplin, who is of Haitian ancestry, said Friday that Trump is misinformed about the island nation, the first independent country founded by freed slaves. On Friday, the president tweeted that his language was "tough" but insisted he didn't say anything derogatory about Haitians aside from noting Haiti is a poor country.

It also underlined the strong historical ties between the two countries and urged the United States to respect the dignity of its "noble and courageous" people. "And whether you vote for me or you don't vote for me, I really want to be your greatest champion, and I will be your champion whether you vote for me or not".
