Are you a racist?' Trump questioned over 's***hole' remarks

Trump denied on Friday using such derogatory language, but he was widely condemned in many African countries and in Haiti and El Salvador, and by global rights organisations.

Lemon expressed his unsurprised disgust at Trump, reiterating his numerous racist statements and actions, from calling Mexicans "rapists" to defending neo-Nazis in Charlottesville to saying all Haitians have AIDS. "I've never seen a statement like this by African countries directed at the United States".

To no surprise president started tweeting this morning denying that he used those words.

"My hope is that it will inspire individuals to say I'm going to live my life to prove them wrong, that statement wrong, the misconceptions wrong, or the labels wrong", Jacques said.

Elsewhere in Haiti, mourners gathered at graves to lay flowers and remember loved ones lost. When it came to the issue of "chain migration" I said to the president do you realize how painful that term is to so many people? "As Haitians, we may be poor, but we have a lot of quality".

President Jovenel Moise led a ceremony in Port-au-Prince on Friday to mark the eighth anniversary of Haiti's devastating natural disaster, sidelining alleged remarks made by President Donald Trump that reportedly described the Caribbean country as a "shithole".

While others said Mr Trump did not perhaps know what he was letting himself in for by welcoming more Norwegians as the country's egalitarian politics clashes with his "winner takes all" brand of nationalism.

President Trump is taking to Twitter amid the backlash over comments he reportedly made to lawmakers in the Oval Office. "I use those words advisedly".

Describing the comments as "extremely unfortunate", President Nana Addo categorically stated that Ghana is "certainly not a racist country". "And he said them repeatedly", Durbin told reporters Friday.

The comment "truly flies in the face of accepted behaviour and practice", said Ebba Kalondo, spokeswoman for AU chief Moussa Faki.

Yesterday, no White House spokesperson confirmed or deny the allegations. House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, a Republican from California, and Rep. Robert Goodlatte, a Republican from Virginia - have not made public comments.
