These Maligned Countries Have a Message for President Trump

President Trump is reported to have called African countries and Haiti "shithole countries" while discussing immigration issues with a bipartisan group of senators at the White House on Thursday.

Trump's comments came during an Oval Office meeting where he questioned why the US would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa as he rejected a bipartisan immigration deal, according to one participant and people briefed on the extraordinary Oval Office conversation.

He tweeted Friday that he used "tough" language but "not that language", which was being taken as a denial of the "sh*thole" comment, although Mr. Trump did not specifically reference that phrase in his denial.

Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, confirmed the remarks, saying Trump "said these hate-filled things and he said them repeatedly".

John Cornyn, the No. 2 Senate Republican, reiterated on Thursday after the White House meeting that a deal would only move for a vote with a clear message from the President that he would sign it. I've not read one of them that's inaccurate.

Florida woman found dead, killed by mistake and 3 people arrested
The sheriff's office said it has located the intended victim, who declined offers from authorities to protect her. The three women charged in her death all came to Central Florida from Puerto Rico in late December, deputies said.

President Donald Trump's White House physician declared him in "excellent health" after the president received his first medical checkup at Walter Reed military hospital on Friday, undergoing a physical examination amid suggestions in a recent book and by his detractors that he's mentally unfit. After starting his presidential campaign by insulting Mexicans, then using a vulgar term to describe National Football League players who were protesting against police brutality, Robillard said Trump has already shown his true nature.

"It is not true", said Durbin, who was one of the lawmakers at the Oval Office meeting.

This is the type of thing, activists, religious leaders and scholars say, that puts Trump's presidency in direct conflict with the legacy of King, who was assassinated April 4, 1968 while trying to make America a more inclusive society. "We should have more people from Norway".

Republican leaders were largely silent, although House Speaker Paul Ryan said the vulgar language was "very unfortunate, unhelpful".

The controversial remarks have already prompted an angry response from other countries, namely Haiti, which reportedly summoned United States officials for an explanation.

In June, he said Nigerian immigrants would "never go back to their huts" after coming to the U.S.

And he wrote: "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians". "I would say I would be very angry, in normal circumstances, but right now my concern is keeping my job", said the man, who asked not to be named out of fear that his comments could harm his immigration status. He has also considered recording all his meetings to prevent similar controversies in the future.

Farah Larrieux, a Haitian immigrant and organizer in Miami, referenced statements Trump made in Miami's Little Haiti neighborhood while campaigning before the 2016 election that he wanted "to be the biggest champion" for Haitian Americans.

And since we're also talking about immigration as well, we're hoping the president would take time to meet some of the TPS recipients, to see exactly how much contribution as a community we continue to provide here in this country.
