USA has great respect for Africa - Embassy


When he spoke to reporters on Air Force One earlier this week, White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said it wouldn't be included in the physical, The Hill reported.

In a series of tweets, Trump said: "The language used by me at the DACA [Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals] meeting was tough, but this was not the language used".

But U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, who was at the meeting, insists the Republican president used the vulgar term.

Trump's statements, first reported by The Washington Post, have drawn widespread outrage.

"This is the president of the United States, the leader of the free world, making these racist statements". "Sorry, but there is no other word one can use but 'racist, '" said Rupert Colville, spokesman for United Nations rights chief Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein. "You can not dismiss entire countries and continents as "shitholes", whose entire populations, who are not white, are therefore not welcome".

The ambassadors' reaction comes after the 55-nation African Union said it was "frankly alarmed".

The Associated Press, however, reported that Trump privately defended the alleged comment, arguing it wasn't racist but "straightforward".

House speaker Paul Ryan described the comments as "unfortunate" and said he had been immediately reminded of his own Irish heritage. "They have come a long way in 8 years, but much work remains and I still believe in the Haitian people".

Republican Sens. Tom Cotton and David Perdue, who've been close allies to the president on the issue of immigration, were in a White House meeting with him Thursday when Trump, according to sources, expressed frustration with people coming to the USA from "sh-hole countries".

Shortly before Trump's inauguration last January, Martin Luther King, Jr. "No matter the colour of our skin or place of our birth we are all equal". I asked him about it a number of times and he denied it but kept up the racist rhetoric and behavior throughout the campaign and now that he's in the White House.

Trump denied on Friday using such derogatory language, but he was widely condemned in many African countries and in Haiti and El Salvador, and by global rights organisations. The president said he has a wonderful relationship with Haitians and suggested future meetings probably should be recorded.

Both Republican and Democratic senators had been working for months to craft legislation that would protect 700,000 young adults who were brought into the USA illegally as children and later shielded from deportation under a programme known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA. He also claimed the deal would force the United States to "to take large numbers of people from high crime countries which are doing badly", but did not offer any specifics or evidence.

"When you're doing that well and you have that many accomplishments, don't you want people to be talking about your accomplishments?" I will not be diverted from all possible efforts to continue negotiating to stop the deportations.
