Trump scrambles as 'shithole' remark fuels outrage


Durbin: Trump said 'shithole' repeatedly, comments were 'vile, racist'

A group of "extremely appalled" African countries demanded yesterday that US President Donald Trump retract and apologise for his reported denunciation of immigration from "shithole" nations.

"I condemn this unforgivable statement and this demeaning of the office of the Presidency", Baltimore Rep. Elijah E. Cummings said in a tweet.

As worldwide outrage grows after President Donald Trump reportedly referred to African nations as "sh-hole countries", the president of the NAACP slammed Trump on Friday evening over the reported remarks, outright calling the President of the United States "a racist".

The president also asked why the United States would allow more immigrants from Haiti and Africa rather than countries like Norway.

At least 10,000 Haitian immigrants came to Southwest Florida after a 2010 natural disaster devastated their nation.

Astrazeneca PLC (AZN) Rating Increased to Strong-Buy at Vetr Inc
The company had revenue of $6.23 billion during the quarter, compared to analysts' expectations of $6 billion. The Hanseatic Management Services Inc holds 419 shares with $12,000 value, down from 54,239 last quarter.

UN Spokesman Rupert Colville said Trump's comments, if confirmed, were "shocking and shameful" and opened the door to "humanity's worst side and go against universal values". The US Military also carries out training and advisory missions in other African countries, with hundreds of troops performing that mission in Niger and Somalia.

Trump said in a series of Friday morning tweets: "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used".

Durbin, the second-highest-ranking Democrat in the Senate, described the president's words as "hateful, vile and racist". Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!

Trump mentioned each of those nations and regions while discussing immigration policy on Jan 11, according to NBC News.

No one is denying, however, that Trump rejected a bipartisan immigration deal brought to him by six senators that addressed not only the now-ended Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, but also the diversity lottery and temporary protected status programs, funding for border security, and some aspects of the family-based migration system.

Former Florida State kicker Roberto Aguayo signs with Los Angeles Chargers
He could be a good fit for the Chargers, though, as Los Angeles shuffled through four kickers this year, all of whom struggled. However, that slump didn't discourage the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from taking Aguayo at 59th overall in the 2016 NFL Draft.

"We have to show the world that this president does not represent the real feelings of most of the American people, which is part of the reason why he lost the popular vote", they said in a joint statement.

So I think the plan here is to try and change the president's mind, essentially, see if they can work with him. "Now, let's face it, when he calls Haiti and El Salvador and Africa a 'sh*thole places, ' a canny person usually from the right wing might say he could have said that about a white place like Moldova". Never said 'take them out.' Made up by Dems.

"House Speaker Paul Ryan said the vulgar language was "very unfortunate, unhelpful".

The African Union (AU), an organisation which promotes cooperation on the continent, said it was alarmed by Trump's "very racist" comments.

That, Penn said, is what should be the focus, not Trump's remarks.

Rescue crews still sifting through California rubble
Crews are continually moving forward in rescue mode, searching for survivors; however, access is proving to be extremely hard . Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown said there "isn't an exact science" for predicting the scope of a disaster.

Trump's comments were allegedly made on Thursday at a White House meeting with lawmakers on immigration reform. There is no other word you can use but "racist".
