AU ambassadors say Trump must apologise to Africans for 'racist' slur

That is all I have to say, Kenyan entrepreneur Wangui Muraguri told the AP in response to Trump.

The African Group of UN ambassadors is "extremely appalled at, and strongly condemns the outrageous, racist and xenophobic remarks by the president of the United States of America as widely reported by the media", a statement said.

The Associated Press might quote someone calling another a racist, "but would not make the accusation on our own absent incontestable proof", said John Daniszewski, the AP's vice president for standards.

Nana Akufo-Addo, who assumed the presidency last January, made the comments on his Twitter account on Saturday.

Adonia Simpson, a program director with the nonprofit Americans for Immigrant Justice, said Trump's remarks had filled Miami's Haitian community with "a lot of disappointment, hurt and anger".

"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.

Haiti said it was shocked by Trump's reported remarks on Thursday and summoned the top US diplomat in the country, asking for an apology if the vulgar term had been used.

House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer of Maryland said, "President Trump's comments are racist and a disgrace".

Before Trump, the most prominent one was Alabama Sen. "It is about opening the door to humanity's worst side".

House Speaker Paul Ryan joined politicians from both parties who were critical of the president following the remark, made Thursday during a meeting on immigration policy at the White House.

World leaders and New Yorkers alike are condemning President Trump's vulgar comments about Haiti and African countries as racist.

Aaron Offe, 34, an immigrant from Ghana who now lives in the Bronx said Trump has not only hurt America's standing in the world but also deepened racial divides within the U.S.

On a week during which Miami's Little Haiti neighborhood remembered thousands of Haitian earthquake victims, racially tinged remarks attributed to America's President brought some to tears. The deal also would include restrictions on a program allowing immigrants to bring some relatives to the U.S.

Once we came to the United States, we were welcomed. "Too bad!" Trump tweeted as he arrived at his private golf club in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Trump asked why the U.S. needed more people from Haiti and Africa.

"He said: 'Put me down for wanting more Europeans to come to this country".

Where someone is born will never determine whether they deserve dignity. Failure could impact government operations.

No, there is no requirement that a person has to have a medical exam of any kind while they serve as president.

Mr Trump was reportedly open to deal but changed his position by the time of the meeting.

Trump took particular issue with the idea, explained by Durbin of Illinois, the Senate's No. 2 Democrat, that as part of the deal people who fled to the U.S. after disasters hit their homes in places such as El Salvador, Guatemala and Haiti, would be allowed to stay.

We love this country.

"He said, 'Haitians, do we need more Haitians?'" Durbin said.

The president and lawmakers are in the midst of intense negotiations about how to shield nearly 800,000 "Dreamers" from deportation. Durbin and other lawmakers want the immigration measure to be attached to a must-do bill to fund the government beyond that date.
