Donald Trump: Shock over U.S. president's migrants remarks

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

In 2015, there were 676,000 Haitian immigrants in the United States, up from 587,000 in 2010, accounting for less than 2 percent of the US foreign-born population, according to the Washington-based Migration Policy Institute.

Reports of the president's language referring to people of colour from the other countries drew criticism from USA lawmakers of both major parties and critics overseas who said they could not be described as anything but racist.

After an emergency session to discuss Mr Trump's remarks, a group of 54 African ambassadors to the United Nations said it was concerned at the continuing and growing trend from the U.S. administration toward Africa and people of African descent to denigrate the continent and people of colour. "His words are slanderous to our legacy as a nation of immigrants".

In a tweet Friday morning, Republican U.S. Sen.

Ghana, located in West Africa, is one of the region's most politically stable countries, and it has long enjoyed friendly relations with the United States - according to a Pew poll from 2015, 89 percent of the country said they had a favorable view of America, though that number dropped to 59 percent when the same poll was conducted in 2017.

"To our surprise, he or someone in the White House invited five other members of Congress", Durbin said, ticking off the names - House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy R-Calif., and Reps.

Even war-torn South Sudan weighed in, with President Salva Kiir's spokesman Ateny Wek Ateny slamming the comments as "outrageous".

Groups such as Mehlman's helped torpedo immigration overhauls in 2006 and 2013, but they have few overt supporters in Washington.

Trump made the remark in a meeting as Sen.

"It is not as if the United States doesn't have difficulties".

Mr Babacar Faye, a tailor in Dakar, said Mr Trump's comments were not surprising.

Trump on Friday denied describing certain nations as "shithole countries" after triggering global outrage.

Durbin, the No. 2 Democrat in the Senate, called the White House to tell Trump that a bipartisan group of senators had struck a deal to put Dreamers on a path to citizenship, beef up border security and take other steps to change immigration laws.

Moussa Faki Mahamat the African Union Chairperson tweeted last night: "I am appalled by the unfortunate remarks attributed to the President of the United States on migrants from African countries, Haiti and Salvador". "Our immigration policy should reflect that truth, and our elected officials, including our president, should respect it".

Making reference to Trump's reported derogatory comments about Haiti, ambassadors expressed solidarity with the people of Haiti "and others that have been similarly denigrated".

Trump's comments highlighted months of concerns about his lack of focus on Africa, including empty ambassadorial posts in key countries like South Africa, Egypt, Congo and Somalia.

Samantha Power, who served as USA ambassador to the United Nations under President Obama, shared the ambassadors' statement on Twitter. Whether folks are coming from Australia or England or Haiti or Senegal, when they come to the United States, they adopt American values and they make our country stronger.

Both sides of the immigration debate have long agreed that the US should move toward a more skills-based program.

"On this pale blue dot Earth that we call home, the Haitian people are our neighbors, to whom our support is both the policy of a great America as it is a sacred duty", Sean wrote.
