The wave of worldwide outrage grew Saturday against the vulgar language President Donald Trump used when referring to immigration from African nations, with Ghana's president saying he would "not accept such insults, even from a leader of a friendly country, no matter how powerful".
As the entire world now must know, Trump referred to African nations, along with El Salvador and Haiti, as "s--hole countries" in a meeting on immigration reform Thursday, and asked why the USA didn't encourage more immigration from countries like Norway, which is a majority white, European nation. She said "It's incomprehensible that these words came out of the mouth of the president of the United States of America, a country that was founded on being free from discrimination and treating people fairly and having people come here, the land of the free".
So, if I'm talking to President Trump today, what we're asking - we're asking two things. "The president of the United States is exhausted of so many black people coming to this country", his colleague Anderson Cooper said. "Do we need more Haitians?"
South Africa's ruling African National Congress called Trump's comments "extremely offensive", while opposition leader Mmusi Maimane said "the hatred of Obama's roots now extends to an entire continent".
In November, the Trump administration rescinded deportation protection granted to almost 60,000 Haitians after the 2010 quake and told them to return home by July 2019.
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".
"Just one day after those disgraceful, racist comments by the President of the United States in the Oval Office, calling African nations 'shithole countries, ' the president has not apologized".
According to them, Trump's statement was "racist" and demanded that the American President render an apology to the labelled countries. Dick Durbin, who was also in the meeting, says he heard the president make those comments. "America deserves better, and when I'm governor, I'll protect immigrant families and make IL a welcoming state for all". He wrote, "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used". Trump allegedly said after being presented with a proposal to restore protections for immigrants from the countries in question. "Maybe, maybe not. Maybe we ought to talk it through and decide before we continue with our current immigration policy", Carlson said.
