Trump defends immigration stance amid uproar over vulgar remark

Botswana's government on Friday summoned the U.S. ambassador to complain about remarks reportedly made by President Donald Trump, describing African nations as "s***hole countries". He also proclaimed Martin Luther King Jr.'s Birthday a federal holiday.

Adams said people she knows are scared and are quickly losing hope that anything will change.

"All of you who over the last few years have uttered that exhausted, lazy, uninformed, uneducated response of calling me and others who point out racist behavior "racists, ' you know what you can go do?"

The comments revived charges that Trump is racist and roiled already tenuous immigration talks that included discussion of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals programmes, or DACA. The largest groups El Salvador and the second is Honduran and the third is Haitians and when I mentioned that fact to him, he said, "Haitians, do we need more Haitians?"

The remarks, Durbin said, were "vile, hate-filled and clearly racial in their content".

"The statement that he made is not from the entire America, it is from only one person", Charitable said.

"Currently, you're talking about a continent that's been totally destabilized by terrorism", Senator Jones says.

Adding "Botswana has accepted United States citizens within her border over the years and countries to host USA guests and senior government officials including a Congressional delegation that will come to Botswana at the end of this month".

Netanyahu will also visit Ahmedabad, Mumbai and Agra. "This evening I am leaving on an historic visit to India". This serves our security, economic, trade and tourism interests, as well as many other areas.

The people were not authorized to describe the conversation and spoke on condition of anonymity. "What do we do about the massive immigration problem, that's especially going to come from Africa?"

Several other local officials are also speaking out about the President's comments.

"Generally, I prefer for network anchors to pose questions, rather than answer them", former CNN correspondent Frank Sesno said of cable news coverage.

Bastien, the community leader, said the president's previous statements compared to his newly reported ones "prove he's speaking out of both corners of his mouth". "If he did not make it, he needs to corroborate the facts and prove it and move forward".

Trump is quoted to have said: "Why do we want all these people from Africa here?"

The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used. "For years, I and others have been trying to tell you, the American people, that this man has been exhibiting bigoted behavior".

The government in Botswana has described the language as "reprehensible and racist", demanding a clarification from the United States ambassador.
