Trump quoted as asking 'Why allow immigrants from s-hole countries?'

This Could Be The Best WaPo Alert About Trump

The NAACP is accusing Trump of "lowbrow, callous and unfiltered racism".

President Trump's reported question about holes -"Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?" - invites other hole-related queries, including: What sort of wormhole transported us to the hellhole in which he is president? Trump said, according to the Post, which cited two people briefed on the Thursday Oval Office meeting with lawmakers. But even then, the President of the United States knew better than to call other nations - including American allies - shithole countries. The White House is not denying that the President used profanity in referring to those nations, but they issued a statement saying the President supports immigration policies that welcome those who can contribute to our society.

Cooper echoed Lemon's statements and said, "The President of the United States is exhausted of so many black people coming to into this country".

Without directly referring to Mr Trump, it tweeted: "US remains committed to working together w/Africans to realize the promise of a more peaceful, more productive, more prosperous 21st century Africa". The comment came during a meeting with lawmakers who are trying to forge a deal to protect hundreds of thousands of young people from deportation.

He has promised to build a "wall" on America's southern border with Mexico and tackle violent Hispanic gangs at home.

The sources spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to publicly describe the conversation.

African Union: Trump 's***hole' remarks dishonor 'American creed'
The remarks dishonour the celebrated American creed and respect for diversity and human dignity. The African Union has also said it was alarmed by President Trump's vulgar statement.

But Illinois senator Dick Durbin, who was present at the Oval Office meeting, said "s***holes" was "the exact word used by the president not just once but repeatedly".

That view of immigrants is in keeping with his description of the visa lottery as a system that selects the "worst" immigrants for entry into the United States.

Africans were shocked on Friday to find President Donald Trump had finally taken an interest in their continent. Trump said, according the Post.

"President Trump called on Congress to solve the DACA challenge".

The remark was reportedly in reference to people from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries.

One Trump official was quoted by CNN as saying: "Though this might enrage Washington, staffers predict the comment will resonate with his base, much like his attacks on NFL players who kneel during the National Anthem did not alienate it".

Faison takes issue with Sessions' marijuana directive
Members of Congress have called the action "heartless and cold" and one that "bulldozes over the will of the American people". Colorado's US attorney, Bob Troyer, said his office won't change its approach to prosecution, despite Sessions' guidance.

He also added that U.S. does not need more Haitians and instructed his team to take them out.

The plan would also include some $2.7 million for border security and a grant of protected status for the parents of beneficiaries, who would be barred from sponsoring their parents for citizenship. "They stand tall and have dignity", Cooper said.

The significance of their agreement was initially unclear.

The Post reached out to the White House for comment, but a White House spokesman declined to comment on the remarks.

The senators say the deal also revamps a visa lottery and rules helping immigrants' relatives enter the U.S.

It was suggested by Republican Sen. Initial bargaining has also occurred among a separate group of four leaders - the second-ranking Republican and Democrat from both the House and Senate, a group to which both Cornyn and Durbin belong. "They [Republicans] don't believe in immigration - it's always been about people of color and keeping them out of this country", Gutierrez said.

Television footage Saturday showed parts of the Sanchi still aflame, its hull and superstructure completely stripped of paint. CGTN also said the ship's voice data recorder, which functions like "black boxes" on aircraft, had been recovered.
