NAACP president on Trump: 'We know he's a racist'

'I'm not a racist': Trump's denial after 's***hole countries' controversy

"Why are we having all these people from sh-hole countries coming here?" said in the Oval Office meeting, The Washington Post reported. The results have most often been a general recounting of the president's height, weight, cholesterol levels and the like. Jessie Duarte of South Africa's ruling ANC said on Friday: "Ours is not a s***hole country and neither is Haiti or any other country in distress".

Democrats also condemned Trump's alleged comments. They facilitated the healing return of its inhabitants from displacement camps. Alongside our military mentors, our hands and souls touched the bodies of the dying and the dead.

The president's physical examination came amid suggestions in a recent book and by his detractors that he's mentally unfit. "There are very fine people on both sides", Trump insisted, saying that antifa demonstrators bore some of the blame for the chaos too.

Trump then "said things which were hate-filled, vile and racist", Durbin said, adding that "sh**hole" was "the exact word used by the president, not just once but repeatedly".

Many on the world's second most populous continent reached for their smartphones, long-practiced in defending it from easy stereotypes.

While the exams are not mandatory, modern presidents typically undergo them regularly and release a doctor's report declaring they are "fit for duty".

"Africans and Haitians come from 'shithole' countries?" At those dates the department will decide whether to extend the status or revoke it.

Alex Nowrasteh, an immigration policy analyst at the libertarian-leaning Cato Institute, is struck by the sudden shift in the Republican position on immigration. The confidant says Trump wasn't apologetic about his inflammatory remarks and denied he was racist, instead blaming the media for distorting his meaning. And there are entreaties to educate the president about the truth of Haiti as if he simply suffers from ignorance.

Trump defends self after 's***hole nations' comment

Editor's note: NPR has decided in this case to spell out the vulgar word that the president reportedly used because it meets our standard for use of offensive language: It is "absolutely integral to the meaning and spirit of the story being told". The country is getting browner, and America 2018 is never going to look like America 1918.

Graham spoke up, confronting Trump's harsh language, which Durbin said "took extraordinary political courage".

In a statement after Trump's comments were first reported, the White House did not deny them. "The Wall was not properly funded, Chain and Lottery were made worse and the U.S. would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime countries".

A group of 54 African countries have demanded Trump to apologise and retract his comments on the immigrants. And then he went on and started to describe the immigration from Africa.

Reginald Dupont, executive director of Foundation SEROvie, an HIV/AIDS service organization that is based in the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince, described the comment as "a major affront to the dignity of peoples".

The group "is concerned at the continuing and growing trend from the U.S. administration towards Africa and people of African descent to denigrate the continent and people of color", it said.

In Geneva, UN human rights spokesman Rupert Colville said: "These are shocking and shameful comments from the president of the United States".
