The president's alleged comments are being condemned by members of both parties.
When asked how his uncle would have responded to Trump's comments on Thursday, Farris Jr. said that he would have urged Trump "not to refer to African countries like that". Senator Dick Durbin said Friday he witnessed what happened at a meeting with the president regarding a bipartisan compromise on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and confirmed the president used that language repeatedly. "President Trump seems to relish derogatory remarks about others and praise for himself". But regrettably, it seems that not everyone is committed to negotiating in good faith.
The global community condemned the comments, which were corroborated by congressmen who had been in the room when Trump made the controversial remarks.
"Very very sad, I was so shocked, I'm still shocked, I can't believe he said that", says Weedor Mcdoweel, originally fromlLiberia whose lived in the U.S for almost seven years. During a bipartisan meeting, the leader of America reportedly said he would prefer immigrants from Norway rather than "shithole" countries in Africa and the Caribbean.
Duncan, Democratic House candidates react to Haiti comments
After the natural disaster in Haiti eight years ago today, Wilson and her family were also on the streets doing basic first aid to anyone who needed help. Never said 'take them out.' Made up by Dems.
"We were hoping for that, but the president is not prepared to do that at this moment", Durbin said.
Having had his reaction to Trump's remarks made public by Durbin, Graham felt little need to confirm or deny the reports himself. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians.
"That's highly unbecoming of a president if somebody uses that kind of language, period", Kang said.
Adams said people she knows are scared and are quickly losing hope that anything will change. "I think President Trump is racially ignorant and racially uninformed. Unfortunately, it becomes more apparent every day that "Make America Great Again" is merely a euphemism for 'Make America WHITE again'".
