South Africa protests to US embassy over Trump "shithole" remark


Accounts suggest that when Trump was told that the largest groups of immigrants with the status were from El Salvador, Honduras and Haiti, the president responded: "Haitians? I'm the least racist person you've ever interviewed".

"I feel glad that I chose that route", she said.

Without explicitly denying using the vulgarity, Trump lashed out at Durbin, who said Trump uttered it several times during the meeting.

Today during a hearing, Graham peddled Dick Durbin's claim that, during a phone call with the Illinois Senator just two hours before the ill-fated White House meeting, Trump was pleased with the proposal Durbin outlined to him.

On Sunday it said it would démarche the US embassy's Charge d'Affaires (acting ambassador) on Monday "following the recent disturbing comments attributed to President Donald Trump".

But Senator Durbin, a Democrat, has said he clearly heard those words spoken by the President.

The internal debate in the West Wing is over whether Trump said "s***hole" or "s***house". He said "shithouse" instead! "But more importantly, it's home to the kindest people who are proud to share their culture", the company wrote in one tweet.

Rep. Mia Love, the first Haitian-American member of Congress, said she also believed the President's statements were racist. "Not where they're from", Cotton said. As for Africa, he asked why more people from "s--hole countries" should be allowed into the U.S., the sources told the Associated Press.

Trump and fellow Republicans have disputed public accounts of the discussion.

Trump opponents say a big reason why they hold their views is because they don't like his policies and "he's disrespected people like me". Lindsey Graham confronted the president during the meeting about his comments.

"I'm not a racist". Trump wasn't apologetic and denied he was racist, said the confidant, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss a private conversation. Made up by Dems.

After a year of rubbing elbows with other world leaders, you'd think Trump would have picked up a few pointers.

Also on Sunday, conservative writer Rich Lowry suggested on ABC's "This Week", and a Washington Post reporter tweeted, that some White House aides believe Trump said "shithouse", not "shithole". By doing so, Graham hopes to achieve his longtime dream of granting amnesty to illegal aliens.

Judging by the president's tweet, it looks a DACA solution is all but dead. They apply every two years to get permits to stay, work and study in the United States. "And that has to start with the president".

Democrats are demanding an immigration deal that protects undocumented immigrants who entered the country as minors.

"Honestly I don't think the Democrats want to make a deal", Trump said.

"We have a lot of sticking points but they're all Democrat sticking points", he said.

If Alanis would have chosen to register with the DACA program, she would likely face the same uncertainty current DACA recipients are feeling.
