Donald Trump causes outrage with remark about immigrants from "s***hole countries"

Donald Trump causes outrage with remark about immigrants from

"I will give them better".

Donald Trump announced his campaign for president [VIDEO]back in June 2015, making headlines in the process when he referred to illegal immigrants from Mexico as "rapists" and "murderers".

"The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used". Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), the co-sponsor of a bill with Durbin to allow immigrants brought to the United States as children to stay and work, with a path to citizenship. "It's a dignity the president, with all his money and all his power, could learn from as well", he said. "We need it! Get smart!" he wrote.

The Washington Post first reported the news, citing two people briefed on the meeting.

Prior to the release of the Post's report, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Thursday afternoon: "There has not been a deal reached yet".

While Trump may think Haiti is a "sh*thole", it's not so bad that he won't use Haitian labor.

According to the aide, when the group came to discussing immigration from Africa, Trump asked why America would want immigrants from "all these shithole countries" and that the us should have more people coming in from places like Norway.

"He's demonstrated himself to be unfit, unknowledgeable about the history of this country and the history of contributions that immigrants, particularly Haitian immigrants, have made to this country", the Chicago Democrat added. "I want to stop the massive inflow of drugs". Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) suggested a 50 percent cut to the lottery program, but it's unclear whether Trump accepted that proposal.

One of the sources told CNN that White House adviser Stephen Miller was at the meeting, and White House chief of staff John Kelly attended part but probably not all of the meeting. "We must challenge the Senate and Congress to repudiate President Trump's comments and every Senator that was in that meeting should publicly denounce him", he said.

The ambassador underscored the indelicate timing of the comment, pointing out that Friday is the eighth anniversary of the 2010 quake in Haiti, which is estimated to have killed well over 200,000 people.

Trump is said to have then encouraged lawmakers to bring in people from Norway, whose prime minister he met yesterday.

"President Trump will always fight for the American people", reports quoted White House spokesman Raj Shah as saying.

Trump's remarks were remarkable even by the standards of a president who has been accused by his foes of racist attitudes and has routinely smashed through public decorum that his modern predecessors have generally embraced.
