Bay Area Haitians disgusted by president's 'shithole' comments

According to those briefed on the conversation, the president used the phrase * a href="http://abc7chicago.com/politics/trump-why-allow-immigrants-from-s***hole-countries/2930875/" *"s***hole countries" while questioning why the USA would accept more immigrants from Haiti and nations in Africa, rather than places like Norway.

Hillary Clinton condemned President Donald Trump's reported comment Thursday about "sh*thole countries" in a tweet Friday marking the anniversary of the quake in Haiti.

However Trump later insisted that he "never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country". To no surprise, the president started tweeting this morning, denying that he used those words.

The reports prompted outrage and accusations of racism from people in the United States and the rest of the world.

As President Trump has cracked down on illegal immigration and reportedly disparaged the "shithole" countries immigrants leave, there's at least one place from which he'd like more immigration: Norway.

A source familiar with the meeting told CNN's Jake Tapper the President did not refer to Haiti as a "shithole" country but Trump did ask why the USA needs more Haitians and pushed to "take them out" of the deal.

"Why are we having all these people from sh*thole countries come here?"

Botswana's government called the president's remark "racist". Trump told senators in the Oval Office, according to a source briefed on the meeting, the comments from which were first reported by The Washington Post.

Senegal's foreign ministry also called in the US ambassador in Dakar to demonstrate its displeasure, a US State Department official said.

In the event that you had any lingering doubts that President Donald Trump is a racist, it's time to throw away that uncertainty. The president said he has a wonderful relationship with Haitians and suggested future meetings probably should be recorded.

Rebecca Black, an immigration lawyer in Jacksonville, said the city has immigrants from all over the world, and they are closely watching the DACA issue.

Adams said people she knows are scared and are quickly losing hope that anything will change. I want to stop the massive inflow of drugs.
