Trump Says Durbin 'Totally Misrepresented' Meeting Remarks

Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin of IL, who was one of the lawmakers in the room, asserted on Tuesday that the President did use those words.

When it came to talk of extending protections for Haitians, Durbin said Trump replied, "We don't need more Haitians'".

"He said "s-house" and not "s-hole".

The reported comments ignited a firestorm of global condemnation and accusations - including from Haiti's government and on Thursday from the country's Senate - that he is racist.

Farris again explained that being "racially uninformed" doesn't make you a racist, but Lemon responded by comparing Trump to George Wallace and saying some members of the KKK don't think they are racist.

On Monday, two senators who said he did indeed use the disparaging remark stood by their account of what took place.

Trump has denied making the vulgar comment.

"He said these hate-filled things and he said them repeatedly", Senator Durbin said.

Trump was not apologetic and denied he was racist, said the confidant, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss a private conversation.

To the extent that Africa is a shithole, there are not many countries that have contributed to digging it as much as the United States of America: from slavery to sponsoring coups in the 1960s, cooperating with apartheid regimes (albeit intermittently), fueling conflicts and propping up nasty dictators.

But the other interesting part of his statement to me, as a Pan Africanist is, I have a different view about this statement of Donald Trump, which in my own view is a wakeup call to us.

"Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people", spokesman Raj Shah told the Post.

The contentious comments came as Durbin was presenting details of a compromise immigration plan that had money for a first installment of the president's long-sought border wall. If you are honest I can guess which country you would pick.

National Government spokesperson Eric Kiraithe, however, says Kenya aligns itself with the position of the African Union which has since demanded an apology from the US President and a withdrawal of the remarks. Of the 1.4 million immigrants from sub-Sahara Africa who are 25 and older, according to the Los Angeles Times, citing research from the Washington-based Migration Policy Institute, 41 percent have a bachelor's degree, compared with 30 percent of all immigrants and 32 percent of the US -born population - and 38 percent of the 19,000 USA immigrants from Norway.
