  • Trump is wrong about immigrants. And s---holes

U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday said a bipartisan Senate immigration plan would force the United States to admit people from "high crime" countries "doing badly", and denied using a vulgar reference in comments decried as racist.

The African Union said it was "frankly alarmed" by Trump's comments.

When Ryan asked her in February if he planned to meet with the Congressional Black Caucus, he replied: "I'll tell you what, do you want to set up the meeting?" he said.

"I can not imagine that in the history of [the Oval Office], that hallowed room, where the president of the United States goes to work every day, there has ever been a conversation quite like that".

Durbin said Trump repeated the term "shithole" during a meeting that was, ostensibly, a discussion about a potentially bipartisan deal on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or DACA.

In a series of tweets early Friday, he said that was not the language he used. "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!"

It also underlined the strong historical ties between the two countries and urged the USA to respect the dignity of its "noble and courageous" people.

Another part of the proposal aimed to assist people from Haiti and El Salvador who have been living in the USA for years under a separate temporary residence program that the Trump administration recently scrapped. Trump launched his presidential bid in 2015 describing Mexican immigrants as murderers and rapists, vowing to build a wall to keep them out.

But what is alarming is that Trump feels empowered to spread such ignorance aloud in a room full of men and women who, like him, were elected to represent the American people, many of whom are from Haiti, El Salvador and nations in Africa.

Trump's racism has clearly driven his policy decisions during his first year in office - from his Muslim ban and his despicable treatment of DREAMers to his ruthless ramp-up of immigration raids and the callous termination of protections for Haitians and Salvadorans who fled natural disaster and violence.

Mr Durbin said that when Mr Trump was told that the largest groups of immigrants with Temporary Protected Status (TPS) were from El Salvador, Honduras and Haiti, the president responded: "Haitians?"

"I think it was stupid and irresponsible and childish", said Rep. Mike Simpson, R-Idaho.

Of course, numerous countries that Trump was talking about - the accounts are fuzzy, but reports suggest he was talking about sub-Saharan nations, and perhaps Haiti - really are basket-cases.

In an afternoon of drama and confusing developments, four other GOP lawmakers - including hardliners on immigration - were also in Trump's office for Thursday's meeting, a development sources said Durbin and Graham did not expect. "Do we need more Haitians?"

"The most disturbing thing about Trump's "shithole" remarks is the way in which his White House encourages assimilation".

"Haitians slap your hand hard when they shake it", Cooper said. The deal also would include restrictions on a program allowing immigrants to bring some relatives to the U.S. "I don't get that", said No. 2 Senate Republican John Cornyn of Texas.
