All 54 African ambassadors to the United Nations decried Donald Trump's reported remarks as "outrageous, racist, and xenophobic" on Friday, a day after USA media reported that Trump had referred to African states, Haiti, and El Salvador as "s***hole countries".
Trump made the comment Thursday in the context of asking why America should accept more immigrants from Haiti and Africa-instead of places like Norway-while discussing a bipartisan immigration deal with lawmakers.
A senior official of the ruling African National Congress (ANC) on Friday rebuked U.S. President Donald Trump's "shithole" remarks about developing countries.
Trump denied on Friday using such derogatory language, but he was widely condemned in many African countries and in Haiti and El Salvador, and by worldwide rights organisations.
If Trump can use his vile brand of "tough language" about entire nations of people, he should be willing to listen when somebody throws words like "racist" and "ignorant" right back at him, right?
Haiti's ambassador in Washington has also asked for an apology, as Trump reportedly specifically questioned the protections granted to Haitian immigrants after the natural disaster.
"There is a serious need for dialogue between the US administration and the African countries". Trump denies using the word. "We should have more people from Norway". Obama has frequently spoken about the importance of respecting the "peaceful transition of power", which helps explain the shift in his direct attacks on Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign versus his more veiled critiques post-Election Day.

"He was very kind to the Haitians, he was very eloquent to them, and he was the first president to (have) ever visited Haitians, and he said he was going to be the champion of Haitians", Haitian-American Georges Sami Saati said.
A White House spokesman defended Trump's position on immigration without directly addressing Trump's remarks. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians.
"I don't think President Trump is a racist in the traditional sense as we know in this country", Farris, Jr. told the media outlet. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), came in an Oval Office meeting with lawmakers on immigration reform.
