UN condemns reported Trump remarks on 's***hole countries' as 'racist'

U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham of SC is being praised by Democrats for standing up to president Donald Trump after the latter allegedly referred to Haiti and several African nations as "shithole countries" during an Oval Office immigration meeting.

Lemon-who just last month was himself attacked by Trump on Twitter-opened Thursday's CNN Tonight: "The President of the United States is racist". The president did not support their plan but the "Gang of Six" said they were planning to promote their plan to colleagues in the Senate to get more support.

Florida politicians slammed slurs President Donald Trump allegedly made to a group of lawmakers in Washington Wednesday about Haiti and other African nations, reportedly calling them "shithole countries" while talking about immigration.

Mr Trump continued: "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians".

U.S. President Donald Trump (right) listens as U.S. Senator Dick Durbin speaks during a bipartisan meeting with legislators on immigration reform at the White House in Washington on January 9, 2018. "Why do we need more Haitians". 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.

Durbin said that when the question was asked about Haitians at the meeting, the president said, "Hatians?"

Females spectators on Friday cheered on two of the teams in the Saudi Professional League , Al-Ahli F.C. and Al-Batin F.C. Before the ban was lifted, women were previously arrested for trying to enter a stadium, ABC News reports .

But the 54 countries also thanked those Americans "from all walks of life who have condemned the remarks". The President and all those attending the meeting know what I said and how I feel. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!" the president added.

As an immigrant justice advocate, I of course want legal status for everyone trying to make it in this country.

"It's very frustrating", a senior White House aide told Politico. 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".

Kinzinger joined a number of lawmakers in criticizing the president's comments in a statement released Friday.

House Judiciary Chairman Robert W. Goodlatte and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy have so far not commented on the remarks.

Hugo Martinez, El Salvador's foreign minister, called on the USA government to confirm or deny Trump's statements. It also reinforces the concerns that we hear every day, that the President's slogan Make America Great Again is really code for Make America White Again. "We keep going off the rails with this other stuff".
