January 12, 2018 – UN Condemns Donald Trump For Calling Haiti & African Nations Shitholes

US President Trump has questioned why the U.S. would want to have immigrants from Haiti and African nations, referring to some as “shithole countries,” according to two sources familiar with the comments.

Trump’s remarks, made in the White House, came as Democratic Senator Dick Durbin and Republican Senator Lindsey Graham briefed the president on a newly drafted immigration bill being touted by a bipartisan group of senators, according to the sources, who asked not to be identified.

Sources said government officials were present during the conversation.

The lawmakers were describing how certain immigration programs operate, including one to give safe haven in the United States to people from countries suffering from natural disasters or civil strife.

One of the sources who was briefed on the conversation said that Trump said, “Why do we want all these people from Africa here?

“They’re shithole countries … We should have more people from Norway.”

The second source familiar with the conversation, said Trump, who has vowed to clamp down on illegal immigration, also questioned the need for Haitians in the United States.

Many Democrats and some Republican lawmakers slammed the president for his remarks.

Republican U.S. Representative Mia Love, a daughter of Haitian immigrants, said the comments were “unkind, divisive, elitist, and fly in the face of our nation’s values”.

Love called on Trump to apologise to the American people and to the countries he denigrated.

Another Republican Representative, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, who was born in Cuba and whose south Florida district includes many Haitian immigrants, said: “Language like that shouldn’t be heard in locker rooms and it shouldn’t be heard in the White House.”

Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal, a frequent Trump critic, said the president’s comment “smacks of blatant racism, the most odious and insidious racism masquerading poorly as immigration policy.”

In an apparent response to his critics, Trump took to Twitter late on Thursday night.

Trump tweeted: “The Democrats seem intent on having people and drugs pour into our country from the Southern Border, risking thousands of lives in the process.

“It is my duty to protect the lives and safety of all Americans. We must build a Great Wall, think Merit and end Lottery & Chain. USA!”

The programme that was being discussed at the White House is called Temporary Protected Status.

In November, the Trump administration decided to end the status for immigrants from Haiti and Nicaragua.

It gave the approximately 59,000 Haitian immigrants who had been granted the status until July 2019 to return home or legalise their presence in the U.S.

Nicaraguans were given until January 2019.

On Monday, Trump moved to end the status for immigrants from El Salvador, which could result in 200,000 Salvadorans legally in the United States being deported, beginning in September of 2019.

The United Nations human rights office has said remarks by Donald Trump describing immigrants from Africa and Haiti as coming from “shithole countries” were racist, as it led global condemnation of the US president.

The UN human rights spokesman, Rupert Colville, told a Geneva news briefing: “There is no other word one can use but racist. You cannot dismiss entire countries and continents as ‘shitholes’, whose entire populations, who are not white, are therefore not welcome.”

  1. He is right in some way but the man is a bullshit racist. If this man was black, they would have impeached his shithole head

  2. Ohmygoodness you guys heard too he be like Nigerians should go back to their huts and what i notice is he’s a racist and he;’s focusing on countries doing good in USA like Nigerians are the most educated immigrants and as a matter of facts he doesn’t want black he said Asians got aids can you imagine Trump calling Africans are living in shithole countries dang he’s nothing else than a devilish racist

  3. OH you guys heard too dang……………………he called a whole continent a shithole, thats wayyyyyyyyyy too disrespectful, and he be like Nigerians should move back to their hut now i believe he’s focusing on immigrants doing great in USA, and one problem again is that he’s a big time devilish racist goddamn wish he would be sued for what he said Most educated immigrant goes to Nigeria and am sure he not happy bout it and we’re black so he feels we should go back to our hut, hell Trump doing too much

  4. I wish African sit tight empty headed leaders should learn from the comments from Trump and start implementing programs that will mentally and physically uplift their nations. But, instead they are more concerned with looting their nations resources. People like Paul Biya of Cameroon, Yoweri Museveni of Uganda and a host of others should step down and give way for fresh ideas. The governed themselves are not entirely free from blame. Some of them worship those that steal their future.

    • My dear Uzoma, I really agree with your writing, we human beings only want to hear what people say, we don’t want to dissect what is been said and pick something from it. The word “shithole” used is not something I am happy with, but as you said, Africans must sit up and especially our leaders and learn something from this man’s comments. What policies do we have for our countries, what programs do we have for our countries. What about our leaders, corrupt, lies, deceit and greed has preoccupied their minds. Our people are spending lots of money to die on the Mediterranean seas, being sold into slavery, why? Because we want to run away and find greener pastures, whereby we could use that money to start up something. We have become so lazy, we want quick monies, by hook or crook, through diabolical means, violence, stealing etc. There is nepotism in our African countries, one person sits on the throne and doesn’t want another to come. Even those Africans living overseas, most are on welfare whilst some are doing legit work finding ways to better their lives. It is high time we listen to our consciences and intuitions so we can change our mother Africa. I am sad to see lots of social vices in the system and trying to blame someone for our woes, mistakes, and fallings.

  5. We need to learn something from this statement. the word used for Africans is not a good word, so what are we doing to fix and change that word.In fact we need to sit up and change a lot of things, fix our countries, how can people work and not being paid, people cannot even afford a day’s meal, people are looking for ways to loot, steal and corrupt, only thinking about themselves and no one else, their families, girlfriends, boyfriends, etc.

    Africans are running away from their countries and dying on the mediterranean sea, being sold into slavery by our own African nations. God has richly blessed us yet we have lost sight of the goodness in Africa. We have rich resources yet we go about borrowing money from IMF, World Bank, China etc. We have people with good qualifications as engineers. doctors etc, yet we allow foreigners to come and dig our oil, gold, and other resources. We hire foreigners to do the work and pay them good money, yet we have refused to give work to our own people, just because we will have our cut and share. We cant trust our own people. How can one person put millions of dollars, pound sterling, euros etc in their account, while someone wakes up very early to go to work and not being paid. You go to the hospital and you need to deposit money before the doctor commences treatment, leaving people to die. Some of our graduates have become robbers, taxi drivers, ritual killers etc. Come on, Africa let us wake up and prove Trump wrong. We have the best brains in Africa, yet the African continent is poor and very poor. It is sad to hear such words, but sometimes the truth really hurt and we don’t want to listen to the truth. We should allow the truth to set us free and bring changes into our countries, lives and the people. We need to change our attitude and make Africa one of the best nations in the world.

  6. Let’s be honest among ourselves, you may see Trump as a lunatic but at times sensible word at times comes out of mad people. Folks, Africa continent especially our Country Nigeria is a shithole as Trump said. I’m not supporting him for insulting African Continent but let us look around ourselves are we not backward from the rest of other nations?. A Country without a stable electricity in 2018 is a shithole.

    A Country without a basic transportation is a shithole. A Country that cannot provide employment opportunity or create a job for his jobless youths is a shithole. A Country where nepotism is being practice is a shithole. A Country where millions are staving to death and its government cannot do anything about it is a shithole. A Country where there is no security and still practicing ritualism in 2018 is a sick and unpleasant place, a Country where 4% of the population are Billionaires and those 4% are holding the rest of populace in ransom is a shithole.

    Folks, don’t be upset with Trump that is how he sees us even to some of the white folks who cannot bluntly come out and say it like Trump. If we want to prove him otherwise, we need to start doing better for ourselves. Lets us critically examine the content of his words not him as individual.

    • Thank you brother for your reasoning…Trump love his country..period,and again,since media was not able to stop him from winning,all these they are throwing at him is useless. Shithole is even better than Nigeria.
