Trump tweets about DACA amid controversy over vulgarity

Trump tweets about DACA amid controversy over vulgarity

According to multiple reports, in an oval office meeting on Thursday, President Trump referred to Haiti, El Salvador, and African nations as "sh*thole countries", questioning why the United States would see any value in welcoming people from those countries to the US.

The White House initially did not deny that Trump made the remarks, but Trump later disputed the reports on Twitter.

Trump denied in a pair of tweets on Friday that he made the comment, but referred to Haiti as a "very poor and troubled country". He suggested in a statement Friday that the president had said something questionable, but Graham did not directly say Trump had used the term "sh-hole" to describe African countries.

The Vatican newspaper on Friday branded US President Donald Trump's reported comments about African countries and Haiti as "particularly harsh and offensive".

Al Jazeera's Kimberly Halkett, reporting from Washington, DC, said: "The calls for the president to apologise for his remarks are intensifying inside and outside the USA, but for now, that apology does not appear likely".

Mr Durbin added: "When the question was raised about Haitians for example... he said 'Haitians, do we need more Haitians?'"

He continued, "President Donald Trump's words describing the glorious people of Africa, El Salvador and Haiti is far worse than mere insensitivity or even nationalism".

"This says a lot about what Trump thinks it means to be an American". When I mentioned that fact to him, he said, 'Haitians? He said these hate-filled things, and he said them repeatedly.

The ANC is not in a position to stop any president from any country from saying anything they wish, she said.

JB Pritzker, a Democrat running for IL governor, released the following statement Friday: "I've said it before and I'll say it again: Donald Trump is a racist and a xenophobe who has never had the dignity to be in the White House", said JB Pritzker.

"We would not deign to make comments as derogatory as that about any country that has any kind of socio-economic or other difficulties", Duarte said, adding that much like their African counterparts, millions of USA citizens were affected by problems such as unemployment.

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or DACA is an Obama-era protection for those who arrived in the country illegally when they were children. Former VP Joe Biden also had choice words about Trump's language, tweeting, "It's not what a president should believe".
