Bar Associations Respond to President Donald Trump's 'Repugnant' Policies, Remarks

Trump was reported to have referred to Haiti, El Salvador and African nations as "shithole countries" during a White House meeting with lawmakers on immigration reform.

Durbin, the second-highest-ranking Democrat in the Senate, described the president's words as "hateful, vile and racist".

"Even if he's trying to take back his words, what's important.is that we now know that what Donald Trump thinks is even worse that whatever he could have said about our brother nations and their dignity". Tom Cotton and David Perdue, said they "do not recall the President saying these comments specifically".

Trump later tweeted Friday morning that he never said anything derogatory. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!"

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. "When it came to the issue of 'chain migration, ' I said to the president, 'Do you realize how painful that term is to so many people?' African Americans believe that they migrated to America in chains. We need to continue to work for a bipartisan solution to this problem and not be distracted by name calling and finger pointing". Trump said, after lawmakers discussed restoring protections for immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries as part of a bipartisan immigration deal.

Trump's reported comments were also taken personally by Dr. Andrew Furey, an orthopedic surgeon in St. John's, N.L., and founder of Team Broken Earth, a group of medical professionals who responded to the Haitian natural disaster in 2010 and has since returned to the country several times.

Botswana's government on Friday announced it was inquiring about the comments through its USA ambassador, while the president of Senegal condemned the reported remarks.

Netanyahu will be in India on a six-day visit from January 14, during which he will hold comprehensive talks with Modi. In the past, Modi has welcomed Chinese President Xi Jinping and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in his home state.

Trump reportedly demanded to know why the United States should accept immigrants from "shithole countries", after lawmakers raised the issue of protections for immigrants from African nations, Haiti and El Salvador.

In the event that you had any lingering doubts that President Donald Trump is a racist, it's time to throw away that uncertainty.

On Friday, the African Union mission, which represents more than 50 member states in the continent, expressed its "shock, dismay and outrage" over the alleged comments. Mahama's tweet used an altered image of an Oval Office meeting featuring Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to mock that mistake. 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. "Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people", White House spokesperson Raj Shah said in a statement.

Trump spent about three hours with military doctors at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Centre in Maryland, an exam that White House doctor Ronny Jackson said went "exceptionally well".

Meanwhile, on Fox News, primetime host Tucker Carlson vociferously defended the president's reported comment.

"Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?" the Washington Post quoted him as saying.

Ewa Ewa, chairman of the African Political Action Committee and president of the Nigerian American Forum, said the comments were insulting.
