Did he, didn't he? Trump denies 'shithole' remark, Democratic senator disagrees

Here's What Trump Had to Say About His 'Sh*thole Countries' Comment

Durbin: Trump said 'shithole' repeatedly, comments were 'vile, racist'

President Donald Trump * a href="http://abc7chicago.com/politics/trump-denies-describing-certain-nations-as-s***hole-countries/2933712/" *fired back Friday against reports he used vulgar language to describe African countries. First, he insisted his senseless wall be part of an immigration deal and now Trump is spouting vile profanities about Haitian and African immigrants from the Oval Office.

In fact, sources tell NBC News that Trump made a career us intelligence officer uncomfortable past year when he grilled her on her Korean heritage and demanded to know why she wasn't being used to negotiate with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!" the president tweeted.

He adds: "I want a merit based system of immigration and people who will help take our country to the next level".

Earlier in the day, the Office of UN Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) said the U.S. president's reported remarks that immigrants were coming from "shithole countries" were racist.

Mia Love, the only Haitian-American in Congress, called on President Donald Trump to apologize after he reportedly referred to Haiti, El Salvador and countries in Africa as "s***hole countries" during an Oval Office meeting.

"In the course of (Trump's) comments, he said things that were hate-filled, vile and racist", the IL senator said Friday. "(Extended silence.) I can't say that". "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!" he added.

Democrats have made clear they would not consider some of the suggestions and the demands risk exacerbating already tense talks as both sides are entrenched in negotiating position.

Trump's reportedly crude outburst against migrants from the African continent and Haiti have set off a firestorm of global rebuke.

Thomas Davis To Retire After 2018
Before the 2017 campaign, Davis signed a one-year, $6.75 million extension, with $3 million guaranteed, which will expire in 2018. Davis has 13 interceptions and 18 forced fumbles in his career, and he'll be hard to replace for Carolina after the 2018 season.

CBS News reports that the Haitian government promptly summoned charge d'affairs Robin Diallo, the top USA diplomat in the country, to respond to the comments.

One reporter asked: "Mr President, will you give an apology for the statement yesterday?", before another said: "Mr President, did you refer to African nations as s***holes?" He did not specifically deny using the word "s***hole". You can not dismiss entire countries and continents as "shitholes", whose entire populations, who are not white, are therefore not welcome.

So far, the State Department said, the U.S. charge d'affaires in Haiti and ambassador in Botswana have been called in by their hosts after Trump reportedly dubbed these countries "shitholes".

Others responded to the derogatory slur with humour.

Others have called it unbecoming for a president to use.

Mexico's former president, Vicente Fox, who has been an outspoken critic of Trump, said in a colorful tweet that "America's greatness was built on diversity".

The White House issued a statement on Thursday which did not dispute the allegation. "The president will always reject temporary, weak and risky stopgap measures that threaten the lives of hardworking Americans, and undercut immigrants who seek a better life in the United States through a legal pathway". Do we need more Haitians?' Then he went on and started to describe the immigration from Africa that was being protected in this bipartisan measure. I want safety and security for our people.

This comes after Trump asked Congress to create a immigration bill in exchange for funding to build a wall along the southern USA border with Mexico. "I think back at presidents throughout history and I can not imagine a moment where a president sunk to that depth, that's what breaks my heart".
