You must apologise to Africans, AU tells Donald Trump

The Latest NAACP ACLU protest Trump remark about Africa

Sen. Lindsey Graham said Friday that "I said my piece directly" to President Donald Trump after he reportedly made derogatory comments about Haiti and Africa - though the South Carolina Republican did not say whether the president had made the "s**thole countries" remark.

The group's mission in Washington DC expressed its "shock, dismay and outrage" and said the Trump administration misunderstood Africans.

Lewis said that Trump had undermined 25 years of African goodwill towards the U.S.

Sessions is a longtime critic of the country's system that allows people with relatives in the United States a chance to apply for visas.

CNN's White House correspondent Jim Acosta said that "it's a disturbing pattern because it seems to come back to one truth here and that is that this president deep down may just be a racist".

Republican Sens. Tom Cotton and David Perdue, who've been close allies to the president on the issue of immigration, were in a White House meeting with him Thursday when Trump, according to sources, expressed frustration with people coming to the USA from "sh-hole countries". "Why don't we get more people from Norway?'"

". Like other nations that have merit-based immigration, President Trump is fighting for permanent solutions that make our country stronger by welcoming those who can contribute to our society, grow our economy and assimilate into our great nation".

Even war-torn South Sudan weighed in, with President Salva Kiir's spokesman Ateny Wek Ateny slamming the comments as "outrageous".

"The president is in excellent health and I look forward to briefing some of the details on Tuesday", Jackson said in a brief statement distributed by the White House.

Have you had a flu shot? It's not too late
If people do get sick, health officials recommend seeking medical advice and limiting contact with others. Howard said in a statement on Friday that two of the state's 36 flu deaths so far have been children.

Shithole countries-like the Black ones. Trump said, the Post reported.

A White House official said Trump had also suggested he would be open to more immigrants from Asian countries because he felt that they help the United States economically. Dr. Jackson added that President Trump is in flawless health and that he would dissect on further details about the physical exam on Tuesday next week where he said that he would allow reporters and journalists to ask questions about the president's health.

There have been more responses to President Donald Trump allegedly referring to some nations as "shithole countries". Trump wasn't apologetic about the inflammatory remarks and denied he was racist, instead, blaming the media for distorting his meaning, the confidant said.

African Union is also demanding an apology from the USA leader known for his disparaging remarks.

The administration announced previous year that it would end a temporary residency permit program that allowed almost 60,000 Haitians to live and work in the US following a devastating 2010 quake.

The comments drew immediate and intense backlash from leaders around the globe.

Trump's reported comments also drew a unanimous condemnation from the African Group of United Nations ambassadors, which said it was "extremely appalled" at the "racist and xenophobic remarks".

"Now", she said, "this is how he treats us". "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians!"

"It's always been a foreign policy priority of our government to fight for the respect and dignity of our countrymen independent of their immigration status", Martinz said.
