African nations unite against Trump's reported 's***hole' countries slur

Earlier, the government of Botswana had announced that it had summoned the USA ambassador to explain Trump's comments, reportedly made on Thursday at a White House meeting on immigration.

JOHANNESBURG (AP) - The African group of ambassadors to the United Nations has issued an extraordinary statement condemning the "outrageous, racist and xenophobic remarks" by President Donald Trump and demanding a retraction and apology.

On Twitter, President Macky Sall of Senegal wrote: "I am shocked by President Trump's comments on Haiti and Africa". Social media users across the continent posted images of modern skylines and handsome nature from their countries with the hashtag "shithole".

"My hope is that it will inspire individuals to say I'm going to live my life to prove them wrong, that statement wrong, the misconceptions wrong, or the labels wrong", Jacques said. "But, if you're saying somebody's from a s--hole country, to me it doesn't make sense". Later in the morning (Jan. 12), he deflected the blame, tweeting: "Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country".

But Norwegians and their Scandinavian cousins on Twitter chose to mock Mr Trump and America itself instead by asking why they would want to go to a country without free healthcare and rampant gun crime.

North Carolina Congressional Map Ruled 'An Unconstitutional Partisan Gerrymander'
Supreme Court is considering a partisan gerrymandering case out of Wisconsin involving state legislative districts. They request a ruling from the highest court by January 22.

"Listen, I'm sure the fact that the counties he described as "shitholes" are mostly populated by people of color and the immigrants he wants from Norway are not is a coincidence", Kimmel said.

Haitians on the island and across the United States, where more than 600,000 Haitians live, offered prayers at ceremonies for those who were killed by the 7.0 magnitude natural disaster that struck on January 12, 2010.

But his political rise was fueled in part by the inaccurate claim that Barack Obama, the nation's first black president, wasn't born in the United States. And what's truly frightening about the "locker room talk" narrative of Trump's language is that it accepts racism, misogyny, and xenophobia as normal.

The United Nations slammed the reported remarks as "shocking and shameful" and "racist". "Do we need more Hatians?"'

Hillary Clinton posted a response Friday to President Trump's "shithole countries" remark from an Oval Office meeting a day earlier.

President Trump brought everyone to the table this week and listened to both sides.

Dick Durbin of IL, the Senate' s No. 2 Democrat, explained that as part of that deal, a lottery for visas that has benefited people from Africa and other nations would be ended, the sources said, though there could be another way for them to apply. "We have consistently been portrayed as sh**ty people from sh**ty countries".

"It is thanks to our African leaders that we are insulted that way", she said.

This came after two senators presented details of a bipartisan immigration deal which Trump rejected.

Trump's latest comments also provided ample fodder for talkshow hosts. Friday night in Raleigh, African immigrants had plenty to say about the president.
