African Union demands apology from Trump over 'shithole' remarks

This is even more senseless, insensitive and cruel as these comments came on the eve of the 8th anniversary of the natural disaster in Haiti.

"I felt so outraged ... It's now, I think, our responsibility to say that his comments don't represent America", said Sen. "This is the real face of Donald Trump - the face of hate, racism".

African Union countries have demanded that Donald Trump "retract and apologise" for comments reportedly referring to African nations as "shitholes".

"There were two of us against 10 people in the room", Durbin said of him and Graham. I want a merit based system of immigration and people who will help take our country to the next level. She said "This behavior is unacceptable from the leader of our nation". The president asked why the US would want all those people from Haiti.

Judge Hatchett adds, "The comments yesterday, by President Trump, were absolutely, absolutely disgusting". "Haiti is a proud nation".

In a series of Friday morning tweets, Trump said he used tough language during Thursday's meeting, but he denied using vulgarities.
