Norwegians tell Trump: We don't want to come to your s***hole country

Donald Trump says he's 'not a racist' after row over African 's***hole' comments

Donald Trump says he's 'not a racist' after row over African 's***hole' comments

Interestingly, this comes after he reportedly referred to the immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries as "s--holes", in an immigration meeting at the White House earlier.

Trump's remarks were made at a meeting of Congressional leaders working on a bipartisan immigration deal to allow some 800,000 so-called Dreamers to remain in the United States. "They're shithole countries. We should have more people from Norway", according to one source briefed on the conversation.

The White House had made it clear that Trump's examination would not include a psychiatric test.

Kimmel then played news reports of the comments.

Trump, who has been accused of racism over several issues since he took office a year ago, sought to walk back the comments on Friday, saying on Twitter, "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used".

South Africa's ruling African National Congress called Trump's comments "extremely offensive", while opposition leader Mmusi Maimane said "the hatred of Obama's roots now extends to an entire continent".

Klepper continued: "I know what you're thinking: What do Norwegians have that Haitians and Africans don't?" He added the country "would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime countries which are doing badly".

As for Africa, he asked why more people from "s-thole countries" should be allowed into the USA, the sources said.

El Salvador slammed them as "deplorable".

Once we came to the United States, we were welcomed.

Trump, "in the course of his comments, said things which were hate-filled, vile and racist", Durbin told reporters.

"You can not dismiss entire countries and continents as "shitholes", whose entire populations who are not white, are therefore not welcome", said Rupert Coleville, spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights. The senator added that he hadn't seen anything reported incorrectly about Trump's choice of words.

U.S. President Donald Trump's use of a vulgar term to describe African countries triggered widespread condemnation, and left the small cluster of immigration hard-line groups whose agenda Trump has embraced scrambling to distance themselves from the president. The African Union, through its member States, values the strategic partnership with the U.S.

MS EBBA KALONDO, spokeswoman for African union chief Moussa Faki.

The US itself has its own problems such as unemployment among millions of people, inequality and non-access to healthcare for many poor people, Duarte said.

Botswana summoned the U.S. ambassador to the country to "clarify if Botswana is regarded as a "shithole" country", according to a foreign ministry statement calling Trump's comments "irresponsible, reprehensible and racist".

Trump was widely derided past year after twice referring to Namibia as "Nambia". We are certainly not a "shithole country".

In Kenya, East Africa's economic hub, political activist Boniface Mwangi pleaded: "Please don't confuse the ... leaders we Africans elect with our attractive continent". What do you say to that?

Officials from Kenya, South Africa, Nepal, and Mexico all had a few words for Trump, proving that the acknowledgment of human rights has not seized to exist in any place but the White House.

As outrage spread, the USA government's own Africa Media Hub tried to put out the flames.

Or I could tell you about the singular, oppressive narrative the media trots out when talking about Haiti, the one about an island mired in poverty and misery, the one about AIDS, the one about a country plagued by natural and man-made disasters, because these are the stories people want to hear, the stories that make Haiti into a pitiable spectacle instead of the proud, complicated country it is.

"Please don't confuse the #shithole leaders we Africans elect with our handsome continent".
