Mahama slams 'racist' Trump, urges action from AU

Graham hasn't publicly commented on the meeting.

Negotiations over a deal on the DACA program, which has protected undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children from being deported, froze this week after Trump derided African nations as "sh-hole countries" and asked why more immigrants couldn't come from Norway during a closed-door meeting with lawmakers to discuss a bipartisan immigration proposal.

The reference was to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which shields from deportation almost 800,000 immigrants brought to the country illegally as children.

Trump has said he wants to help Dreamers, but only if he gets something in return: his border wall and other security measures, an end to the diversity visa lottery, and limits on family-based visas, which the president derisively refers to as "chain migration". "He said those hate-filled things and he said them repeatedly", Senator Richard J. Durbin of IL, who was in the room, said Friday.

In sum, although the Clintons promised to take a prominent role in Haiti's rebuild following the 2010 natural disaster, the country remains in shambles as Clinton Foundation donors and family members received massive contracts.

Robert Jackson, the current US ambassador to Ghana, told Ghanaian reporters a year ago the election of Trump would not change the relationship between the United States and African nations. The Post included El Salvador on its list. It gave us a plotline that told us as much about the people around its protagonist as the protagonist himself: a disastrous whirlwind on immigration, one of the show's signature issues.

The slur was "the exact word used by the president ― not just once, but repeatedly", said Durbin.

"You can not dismiss entire countries and continents as "shitholes", whose entire populations who are not white, are therefore not welcome", said Rupert Coleville, spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.

In 2016, in response to a question about then-candidate Trump's views on immigration and his intention to build a wall along the US border with Mexico, Francis said a man with such views was "not Christian".

MS may impose work requirements on Medicaid beneficiaries
Long-term welfare tends to trap people in poverty, and policies like work requirements free welfare recipients from the trap. Kentucky is the first state to require Medicaid recipients to work or get job training in order to qualify for aid.

Former Ghanaian leader John Mahama has also condemned the comment saying it betrayed Mr Trump's racist agenda to make America a white-only country and urged leaders of African Union countries to respond to the American leader as Botswana earlier did.

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

"We also need people to pick tomatoes and who will work in the agricultural sector, and there's merit to that also,"said Paul".

All African countries at the United Nations unanimously demanded that US President Donald Trump retract and apologise for his reported denunciation of immigration from "shithole" nations. Others said Trump , a 71-year-old who relishes rejecting political correctness, was voicing views held quietly by many.

Shithole countries-like the Black ones.

Many Africans reminded the USA of its historic role in the continent's woes.

"They never took a thing from our federal government".

"He was talking about, you know, people coming from countries that are just not being run right, okay?" Trump wasn't apologetic about the inflammatory remarks and denied he was racist, instead, blaming the media for distorting his meaning, the confidant said.
