Dems, GOP angry about Trump's vulgar language

Botswana on Friday officially asked the United States ambassador whether Donald Trump considers the nation a "s***hole" country, describing the American president's disparaging comments about African countries "reprehensible and racist".

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of SC issued a statement that didn't reveal much: "Following comments by the President, I said my piece directly to him yesterday". According to those briefed on the conversation, the president used the phrase * a href="http://abc7chicago.com/politics/trump-why-allow-immigrants-from-s***hole-countries/2930875/" *"s***hole countries" while questioning why the USA would accept more immigrants from Haiti and nations in Africa, rather than places like Norway.

Donald Trump ragging on immigrants from "sh*hole countries" in a January 11 Oval Office meeting has gotten him into some deep. well, sh*t.

Senator John Kennedy, R-Louisiana, was not in Thursday's meeting at the White House, but had this to say about the comments attributed to the president.

Trump tweets: "Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country".

To repeat, Senators Cotton and Perdue said they "do not recall the President saying these comments specifically".

"The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used", Trump said.

"I don't understand what it means to be not a racist in the traditional sense", Johnson said.

After President Trump proved once again that he thinks People of Color are less than by calling Haiti, El Salvador, and African nations "shitholes," CNN journalist Don Lemon refused to dance around the subject. "Graham, in a statement Friday, said he spoke directly with Trump about the comments after the meeting and made it Trump now knows" how I feel".
