Ghanaian president lambasts Trump over vulgar description of African nations

Ghanaian president lambasts Trump over vulgar description of African nations

AU Spokeswoman Ebba Kalondo pointed out the USA role in the Atlantic slave trade as an example of how African countries, Trump described in contemptuous terms, were exploited in a shameful manner.

Clinton piled on, bringing up the anniversary of the devastating quake that struck Haiti in 2010 and using it as a club to hit at her former rival.

But it emphasised that such a partnership should be based on mutual respect and accepted worldwide principles of respect of basic human dignity. And we should remember those who live with their loss.

Donald Trump's doctor declared him in "excellent health", after the 71-year-old United States president underwent his first medical examination since taking office in January 2017, the White House said. But neither he nor the White House disputed the most controversial of his remarks: using the word "s--hole" to describe Africa nations and saying he would prefer immigrants from countries like Norway instead.

Senators Lindsey Graham and Richard Durbin proposed cutting the visa lottery program by 50 per cent and prioritising countries already in the system, a White House official said. He called immigration "a legislative branch issue, not an executive branch issue" and said that the focus should be putting pressure on Congress. 'I have not read one of them that's inaccurate.

Although the President denied he had used such language on Friday, Democratic Sen. It is not true.

Durbin added: "He said these hate-filled things and he said them repeatedly". Tom Cotton of Arkansas and David Perdue of Georgia, issued a joint statement, saying they did "not recall the president saying those comments specifically".

'It's not how a president should speak. "That's not how a president behaves". Wolff told CNN's Christiane Amanpour that "100% of the people around the President believes he's incapable of carrying out the duties of office".

Our health care prices are some of the highest in the world, but we don't have better outcomes.

Trump's contemptuous description of an entire continent startled lawmakers in the meeting and immediately revived charges that the president is racist.

Government, citing ruling, again will accept requests for DACA protection
Trump ignored shouted questions about his comments as he signed a proclamation Friday honoring Martin Luther King Jr. David Perdue (R-GA) issued a joint statement on Friday afternoon, which did not expressly deny the incident.

"The African Union Mission wishes to express its infuriation, disappointment and outrage over the unfortunate comment made by Mr. Donald Trump, the President of the United States of America, which remarks dishonor the celebrated American creed and respect for diversity and human dignity", the union said in a statement.

Durbin also recounted a "heartbreaking moment" when Trump and others "scoffed" at his comments about the importance of family-based immigration.

Mr Trump said he was only expressing what many people think, but will not say, about immigrants from economically depressed countries, according to a source who spoke to the president as the controversy unfolded.

In exchange, the deal would end extended family "chain migration".

Biden apologized after a 2007 comment where he said of then-Senator Barack Obama: 'I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.

I mean, where to begin.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who Trump mocked mercilessly during the campaign, blasted the "hateful racism" implied by Trump's quote. I could write about the beauty of the island, the music and vibrant art, the majesty of the mountains, the crystalline blue of the water surrounding her, the resilience of the Haitian people, our incredible work ethic, our faith. "In reforming immigration we can not lose these American Ideals".

On a week during which Miami's Little Haiti neighborhood remembered thousands of Haitian quake victims, racially tinged remarks attributed to America's President brought some to tears.

South Carolina Republican Sen.

On Saturday, Trump sought to blame "all talk and no action" Democrats for lack of an immigration deal.
