Chorus of condemnation grows over Trump 'shithole' slurs

US President Donald Trump desperately sought Friday to quell a growing storm triggered by his reported description of African nations, Haiti and El Salvador as "shithole" countries, in a slur denounced as "racist" by the United Nations.

Dick Durbin of Illinois, the Senate' s No. 2 Democrat, explained that as part of that deal, a lottery for visas that has benefited people from Africa and other nations would be ended, the sources said, though there could be another way for them to apply.

The African Union said in its statement that while it condemn Trump's remark, maintaining a dialogue with the president was necessary to help him better understand their continent.

There is a long history of the White House picking and choosing what to reveal about the commander in chief's health, said Barbara Perry, director of presidential studies at the University of Virginia's Miller Center.

In the Oval meeting, Trump went on to suggest that the country should be negotiating the entry of more immigrants from places like Norway whose prime minister he met with on Wednesday (Jan. 10).

Speaking to Xinhua, Abebe Ayente, senior researcher at Ethiopian Foreign Relations Strategic Studies (EFRSS), a local think tank, said the comments will further reduce the influence of US on the global stage.

Ambassadors unanimously agreed the resolution after an emergency session to weigh Trump's remarks.

It's incumbent on everyone as global citizens, he said, to challenge the president's views on countries outside the U.S., especially those that are poor and in need.

In full damage control, Trump and the White House trashed Wolff and his book as fiction and tabloid garbage while defending the President's mental fitness.

The group called the remarks "outrageous, racist and xenophobic" while thanking those Americans who had condemned the remarks.

One of the overarching questions as the vote on the federal budget approaches is which components of immigration reform and border security will be included. DACA protects from deportation the nearly 800,000 immigrants brought to the country illegally as children.

The United Nations' human rights spokesman Rupert Colville told reporters in Geneva that Trump's comments were "shocking and shameful". It's hard to say.

But the government of Haiti - which yesterday marked the eighth anniversary of a devastating earthquake that killed at least 200,000 people - declared itself "outraged and shocked" by the "racist" slur. So Graham and Durbin have been working tirelessly on a compromise bill that can win Republican and Democratic votes, and whether it can advance on Capitol Hill depends heavily on whether it receives Trump's blessing.

"I'm not the only one that does not remember that being said".

In a statement, the Haitian government expressed its shock and outrage.

Democrats seized on Trump's latest slur to suggest he is anti-immigrant or worse.

"For the first representative of the United States of America to speak in such a manner is quite troubling and offensive", Jean said in the statement.

"This is like throwing gasoline to the fire", Representative Adriano Espaillat, a New York Democrat, said of Trump's reported language.

Casual Friday at the White House is soon to include hoods and tiki torches at this rate, South African media outlet Daily Maverick wrote.

The US has about a little over 6,000 forces in Africa in about 53 different countries, where they focus on countering extremist groups and illicit activity, as well as peacekeeping, humanitarian aid and disaster response.
