One person who attended the meeting told aides they heard the latter expletive, while others recall the president saying the more widely reported “shithole”, according to a person briefed on the meeting but not authorised to speak publicly about private conversations. US President Trump would have no doubt referred to them as s…tholes for lack of a better word (in his limited vocabulary) nonetheless he wouldn’t be too off the mark because those countries were in bad condition, reduced to rubble and had to be re-built and become magnets for immigrants and refugees from other s.tholes.
They are all safer, more prosperous places now, and the sources of the migrant flows have changed – but the motives of the migrants have not. Perhaps President Trump must’ve read some of those submitted documents.
Rev. Al Sharpton, the president and founder of National Action Network (NAN), said that Trump’s deplorable statements while meeting with a bipartisan group of lawmakers at the White House regarding an immigration deal go beyond racial insensitivity. Besides, troubled presidents like Abraham Lincoln, who biographers say suffered severe depression for most of his life, show that mental illness does not necessarily render one unfit to lead.
Trump has touted the blooming economy and taken credit for the major rise in the stock market.

As Trump officially announced the strike, he said the targeted airfield had launched the chemical attack on a rebel-held area and called upon other nations to oppose Syria’s embattled leader. But Trump has taken lying to an entirely new level. “Please don’t lie to the American people”. Nearly nothing that comes out of his mouth can be assumed to be true.
Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joseph Dunford said in October that the U.S. has about 6,000 troops in Africa, “and they’re in about 53 different countries”.
This won’t do. “Cooperation” and “coordination” sound as if Trump and his campaign assistants were merely being polite to the Russians, engaged in a kind of innocent parallel play.
Nielsen, who was also in that meeting, was now under oath, and she wiggled every which way to excuse Trump without perjuring herself: “I did not hear that word used”. “Collusion” is the proper word, suggesting complicity in a conspiracy.
The ABC News/Washington Post poll gave Trump an approval rating of 36 percent, the lowest of any previous president in his freshman year.
Rubbish. They’re not going after “welfare”.
African leaders should shun corruption so that public funds can be judiciously used for development and welfare of the people. Trump and Ryan are aiming at Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security. Back in Israel, he has taken to branding African asylum seekers “infiltrators” and is deporting thousands of them. They want to cut them in order to pay for the huge tax cut they’ve given corporations and the wealthy. Rather than the laudable ethos upon which modern America is built, namely a nation of immigrants free to strive for excellence and success, regardless of their provenance, it appears you want to pull up the drawbridge for people who are not white, and engineer an exclusive, less diverse America. Trump is a racist: such a dyed-in-the-wool racist that he is virtually unconscious of it.
Graham, a Republican from SC, has said that he had objected to Trump’s comments while the contentious meeting was in progress.
“This is a call to reawakening and self-examination, African countries have for too long, suffered shame and reproach among the coming of nations”.
Face it: Trump is a racist, and his comments are racist.
Whelan pointed out that Trump’s appointees to important appeals courts included three women and two Asian-Americans.
How can we forget his rise as a candidate after questioning the validity of President Barack Obama’s birth certificate, branding Mexican immigrants rapists and criminals, calling for a ban on Muslims entering the United States and responding very slo-o-owly to disavow the support of the former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke.
