Trump's immigration remarks lambasted from left and right

The Republican president's comments were decried as racist by African and Haitian politicians, by the United Nations human rights office and by U.S. lawmakers from both major parties.

So was Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin of IL, who told reporters separately on Friday morning that Graham stood up to the president after he reportedly made derogatory comments about Haiti, El Salvador and African countries, and wondered aloud why the United States couldn't attract more immigrants from predominantly-white Norway.

Some Republicans were also plainly unhappy, with House Speaker Paul Ryan describing the reported comments as "very unfortunate" and "unhelpful".

"I planned to hold my two daughters a little bit tighter tonight, especially my youngest who was the baby I kept in my arms to keep myself from curling up in a fetal position each time I saw a child being pulled from under a school or house on my television screen". King's memory is marked with a national holiday, which falls this year on Monday.

Trump spent Thursday evening calling friends and outside advisers to judge their reaction, said the confidant, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to disclose a private conversation.

President Trump made the remark Thursday in a meeting with lawmakers on immigration.

Former Swedish Prime Minister Carl Bildt had earlier tweeted that, judging by Solberg's visit, "keys to success with Trump are personal charm, a solid trade deficit with the United States and buying tons of U.S. military hardware". "The so-called bipartisan DACA deal presented yesterday to myself and a group of Republican Senators and Congressmen was a big step backwards", he said.

South Africa's best known morning-news anchor, Leanne Manas, tweeted, "Good morning from the greatest most attractive "shithole country" in the world!' Elsewhere on Twitter, many Africans posted landscape pictures testifying to the true identity of their nations". Alexander Hamilton said that the Louisiana Purchase would have never happened were it not for the "courage and obstinate resistance of the black inhabitants" of Haiti. He added the country "would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime countries which are doing badly".

Trumps lies are so numerous and patent that even members of his own team chose silence and equivocation when asked to respond to his latest insulting reference to African countries as “sh-hole countries” and his objection to allowing Haitians into the US.

The President reportedly made the comment after becoming frustrated during a discussion on restoring certain countries to the Temporary Protected Status program in exchange for $US1.5 billion border wall funding and a reduction in the visa lottery scheme. "The country has the right to establish what would benefit our nation the most", he said.

Pollak also said he felt that White missed the point in saying that professors involved in the federal complaints were not retaliated against because their careers progressed.

In a statement on Thursday, the White House did not deny that the president made the comments.

The acclaimed novelist said that Haiti is a country of great art and culture.

"President Trump, one day, I'll take you to a "s***hole" country called Ghana", wrote Ghanaian Edmond Prime Sarpong on Facebook. It noted that Trump's comments had immediately sparked "controversy and indignation". He also claimed there were "very fine people on both sides" after violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, left one counter-protester dead.

"I appreciate Senator Durbin's statements and have enjoyed working with him and many others on this important issue", Graham said in his statement.

While he is fundamentally Americas problem, he becomes our problem, too, unless we join the rest of the world in setting and reinforcing the boundaries of respect and decency by which countries deal with each other.

Federal agencies will run out of money and have to shut down if lawmakers don't pass legislation extending their financing by January 19. Durbin and other lawmakers want the immigration measure to be attached to a must-do bill to fund the government beyond that date.
