Donald Trump DID Call Countries 'Shitholes' & His Racism Hurts All Of Us

As Trump shook hands with people at the event, reporters took the moment to ask him questions related to his remarks about Haiti and African countries.

Trump's out-of-nowhere comment - the White House didn't even deny Trump used the term on Thursday night - was probably a response to "Fox & Friends", which denounced Trump's language.

The president said at the White House that "love was central" to the slain civil rights leader.

Orange County Commissioner Victoria Siplin, who is of Haitian ancestry, said Friday that Trump is misinformed about the island nation, the first independent country founded by freed slaves.

A player who purchased a ticket in Soldiers Grove won $150,000 in the drawing by adding the Power Play option. The winning numbers in Powerball draw 1130 were 32, 7, 5, 34, 38 and 11, while the Powerball number was 12.

In its statement, El Salvador's government expressed its "rejection" of the comments attributed to Trump.

Although Trump denied using the expletive, senior Democratic Senator Dick Durbin who attended the Thursday meeting at the White House asserted that the president did resort to the crude slur that liberal United States media outlets went to town with at once. "In regards to Senator Durbin's accusation, we do not recall the President saying these comments specifically but what he did call out was the imbalance in our current immigration system, which does not protect American workers and our national interest". "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!"

"I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians", the president said.

"Instead, we're subjected to Trump's ignorant, racist views of anyone who doesn't look like him".

Just six have been conceded over a 10-game period but the majority of them have come during the latter stages of either half.

The comments were widely received as racist, and also raised concerns internationally. The African Union said it was "frankly alarmed" and the United Nations human rights spokesman Rupert Colville said the comments, "I'm sorry but there is no other word for this but racist".

Donald Trump has denied using vulgar language during a private meeting with lawmakers as he faced a global backlash over his comments about immigrants. In questioning "Why do we want all these people from Africa here?" He said these hate-filled things.

Responding to the remarks, AU spokeswoman Ebba Kalondo reminded Trump that many Africans "arrived in the U.S.as slaves", adding that Trump's profane statement "flies in the face of all accepted behaviour and practice". Among them: "Mr. President, are you a racist?"

Trump's alleged remarks are certain to further inflame Haitians already angered by his decision to rescind Temporary Protected Status, or TPS, for refugees from the island.
