Paul Ryan Called Trump's 'Shithole' Controversy 'Very Unfortunate, Unhelpful'

Paul Ryan Called Trump's 'Shithole' Controversy 'Very Unfortunate, Unhelpful'

"No I don't think there will be" a shutdown, Ryan said.

He admits efforts toward such a compromise are complicated by reports President Donald Trump referred to Haiti and African countries as "expletive-holes" during a meeting the day before. "Family. My family, like a whole lot of people, came from Ireland and worked the railroads", Ryan said.

"It is a attractive story of America".

Ryan's response to Trump's comments was telling because it was mostly about him.

Ryan suggested he would like to see a permanent solution to the issue of the DACA illegal aliens as well as a "security component" to permanently fix America's illegal immigration problem. "I think it's important we celebrate that".

Trump Threatens To Withdraw US Aid To Palestinians
Abbas had earlier said that they would not accept any peace plan from the United States , after Trump's Jerusalem move. But Hanan Asrawi, from the Palestinian Liberation Organisation blasted Trump for "sabotaging" peace talks.

According to the Washington Post, Trump countries such as Haiti, El Salvador, as well as Africa as "shithole countries". "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!" Trump's frustrations boiled over during talks about the visa lottery program and the temporary protected status program, which his administration just ended for some 200,000 Salvadorans who have lived in the USA for more than a decade.

The moderator of the Wisconsin event asked Speaker Ryan, "Will [DACA] get attached to the spending bill?" Never said "take them out".

"You're going to have to find bipartisan consensus to fix these thorny long-term problems, and we don't have that right now", he said. Ryan also said that he does not believe that we will see a government shutdown later this month.

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), said the president's comments reminded him of stories relayed by relatives about discrimination his Irish ancestors faced upon arriving in America.

"We have to keep those separate because that's just not good government, just lopping all this stuff together", he said.
