AU ambassadors demand apology from Donald Trump over 'racist remarks'

In a statement on Friday, Graham reiterated standard pro-immigration, pro-amnesty talking points, claiming he almost reprimanded Trump after he allegedly made the comment.

An agreement on immigration reform seemed hopeful when Trump and members of Congress met at the White House to discuss the issue Tuesday. "We have consistently been portrayed as sh**ty people from sh**ty countries".

Christian Christensen, a USA citizen living in Sweden, wondered on Twitter why citizens of Norway would emigrate, pointing out the higher occurrences of shootings and poverty as well as the lack of healthcare and a social welfare net.

Trump now claims he only used "tough" language about this deal, but in light of those comments, his actual policy stance confirms the broader point: Trump is, in fact, rejecting the deal because it lets in too many people from what he thinks are "shithole countries", or lets too many of them remain.

Democrats have not budged on their demand that the almost 800,000 illegal aliens shielded from deportation by the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program be given amnesty, along with their parents who brought them here illegally.

He wrote that the language he used was "tough, but this was not the language used".

"The premise of national origin quotas was that some countries produce good immigrants, others produce bad immigrants", said NPR correspondent Tom Gjelten, author of the 2015 book "A Nation of Nations: A Great American Immigration Story".

The tweet was the third of three messages from Trump on Twitter early Saturday morning.

Norwegians did move in large numbers to the United States in the nineteenth century, but the figure was down to 502 in 2016, a decline of 59 from the previous year, according to Statistics Norway.

North Koreans are also genuinely anxious the United States could launch a preventive war on the peninsula. Yonhap reported Thursday North Korea's religious council strongly condemned a U.S.

Democrats also condemned Trump's alleged comments. The Post included El Salvador.

The president reportedly questioned why the United States would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa rather than nations like Norway. "And we'd have to get pitchforks and chase him out of the White House".

Meanwhile, Botswana has summoned USA ambassador to express displeasure at the "highly irresponsible, reprehensible and racist" comments by Trump.

This is not the first time Trump has rubbed Africans up the wrong way - he was widely derided previous year after he twice referred to Namibia as "Nambia".

Trump specifically questioned why the USA would want to admit more people from Haiti, according to Durbin.

"As individual Christians, we have a biblical responsibility to place the needs of others above our own, but as commander in chief, President Trump has the constitutional responsibility to place the interests of our nation above the needs of other countries".

Botswana summoned the United States ambassador to the country to "clarify if Botswana is regarded as a "shithole" country", according to a foreign ministry statement calling Trump's comments "irresponsible, reprehensible and racist".

While others said Mr Trump did not perhaps know what he was letting himself in for by welcoming more Norwegians as the country's egalitarian politics clashes with his "winner takes all" brand of nationalism.
