Ghanaians lash out at President Trump over 'shithole' comment

President Donald Trump denies calling Haiti, El Salvador and a few African countries "s-hole countries" during a lawmaker meeting in the Oval Office Thursday, but some people don't believe him - including leaders from some of those countries.

In an earlier tweet on Friday, Mr. Trump said, "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used". Trump ended the program and finding a legislative solution is a key issue in negotiations between the White House and congressional Democrats on immigration policy.

An alleged description of African and other countries as "shitholes" by Donald Trump prompted outrage on Friday, even as the United States president appeared to deny having used the specific term.

Tucker Carlson said President Trump's controversial comment about the USA accepting immigrants from "s***hole countries" is forcing a conversation that elected leaders don't want to have.

"The so-called bipartisan Daca deal presented yesterday to myself and a group of Republican Senators and Congressmen was a big step backwards", he said referring to the deferred action on childhood arrivals Bill that aims to give protection to "dreamers", undocumented immigrants who arrived to the U.S. as children.

"I can not believe that in the history of the White House, in the Oval Office, any president has ever spoken words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday", Durbin told reporters.

This is a developing story.

Senator Durbin, a member of the Democratic Party, was at the White House meeting on Thursday. "There is a serious need for dialogue between the USA administration and African countries".

China Won't Use Treasuries to Warn Trump, Eurasia Group Says
A treasury bond is a marketable, fixed-interest U.S. government debt security with a maturity of more than 10 years. US Treasuries later pared some of their losses and the 10-year yield stood at 2.555 per cent in early Asian trade.

The Post revealed that Trump made a series of phone-calls to some of his friends and supporters to gauge their opinion after 24 hours of global condemnation.

"Apparently he and I are the only two people that use a few curse words here and there", Scaramucci wrote on Twitter.

Dr. Ronny Jackson says in a statement released by the White House that Trump's physical Friday "went exceptionally well". President Donald Trump's words describing the glorious people of Africa, El Salvador and Haiti are far worse than mere insensitivity or even nationalism. To no surprise, the president started tweeting this morning, denying that he used those words.

The president met on Thursday with Senators Lindsey Graham, Republican of SC, and Richard J. Durbin, Democrat of IL.

"I read those comments later last night, the first thing that came to my mind was very unfortunate, unhelpful", the Wisconsin Republican said Friday at the WisPolitics Luncheon in Milwaukee.

The tentative deal also addresses border security, including a border wall, the diversity visa lottery and chain migration, in which USA green-card holders can sponsor other family members for permanent residence in the country.
