Ghanaian president lambasts Trump over vulgar description of African nations

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

Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury: Inside Donald Trump's White House", said the president prefers to be in bed by 6:30 p.m. with a cheeseburger in hand.

Mr. Trump issued a denial Friday about using that language where he reportedly described Haiti, El Salvador and African nations as "sh*thole countries". I could write about the beauty of the island, the music and vibrant art, the majesty of the mountains, the crystalline blue of the water surrounding her, the resilience of the Haitian people, our incredible work ethic, our faith.

We have heard from conservatives who defend Mr. Trump and defend this remark. and saying that, well, these countries are shitholes, and that's why people are trying to get out of them.

AU Spokeswoman Ebba Kalondo pointed out the USA role in the Atlantic slave trade as an example of how African countries, Trump described in contemptuous terms, were exploited in a shameful manner.

A year earlier, Bornstein said in a December 2015 letter: "If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency".

Trump made the comments during an immigration meeting with Durbin and six Republican lawmakers: Sens.

Although we love to visit America, Mr. Trump, it is highly unlikely that Norwegians are going to flow into the U.S. to live.

Jean, who was born in the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince and is now secretary general of the Organisation internationale de la Francophonie, called Trump's reported remarks "insulting". Multiple senators of both parties confirmed or suggested Friday that Trump used those words.

"For months, I have been involved in numerous high level bipartisan meetings negotiating DACA (Deferred Action for Child Arrivals), including Thursday's meeting at the White House".

The tentative deal also addresses border security, including a border wall, the diversity visa lottery and chain migration, in which USA green-card holders can sponsor other family members for permanent residence in the country.

Trump spent about three hours with military doctors at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, an exam that White House doctor Ronny Jackson said went "exceptionally well". He added the country "would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime countries which are doing badly".

El Salvador's government sent the U.S. a formal letter of protest that said the president had "implicitly" accepted the use of "harsh terms detrimental to the dignity of El Salvador and other countries".

"You can not dismiss entire countries and continents as "shitholes" whose entire populations, who are not white, are therefore not welcome", he added.

Someone should remind the president - not that it would do any good - that without the world's "shithole countries" there would be no America. 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".

The United Nations' human rights spokesman Rupert Colville told reporters in Geneva that Trump's comments were "shocking and shameful".

Metellus referred to Trump's September 2016 campaign stop in Little Haiti, where he promised "to be president of all Americans, that's everybody, and whether you vote for me or don't vote for me, I really want to be your greatest champion and I will be your champion".

"Not every comment said it explicitly racist". "I am committed to working with Republicans and Democrats to find common ground so we can move forward".

"We have seven days and the clock is ticking". We are entrepreneurs, big and small, dreamers, workers.
