International condemnation of Donald Trump is growing after reports the president used an expletive during a meeting about immigrants from Africa, Haiti and El Salvador. While meeting with lawmakers, Trump reportedly said, “Why do we want all these people from Africa here? They’re shithole countries … We should have more people from Norway.” Trump also reportedly said, “Why do we need more Haitians? Take them out.” Earlier this morning, Trump wrote on Twitter, “The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used. What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made – a big setback for DACA!” Trump’s remarks come weeks after The New York Times reported Trump had also disparaged Haitians and Nigerians during a closed-door meeting in June. Trump said Nigerians would never “go back to their huts” if they came to visit the U.S. As for Haitians, Trump said they “all have AIDS.” Trump’s latest remarks come just after his administration announced it is ending temporary protected status for up to 250,000 Salvadorans who have been living in the U.S. since at least 2001. Last year, the Trump administration announced it is also ending temporary protected status for tens of thousands of Haitian, Nicaraguan and Sudanese immigrants living in the United States. Trump’s remarks from Thursday have been condemned across the globe. We speak to Haitian-American novelist Edwidge Danticat as Haitians mark the eighth anniversary of the devastating 2010 earthquake.

Edwidge Danticat, Haitian-American novelist, author of several books, including The Farming of Bones, which won an American Book Award.

Ha ha ha TRUMP trolls democracy now who lies again. Trump said Norway and Asian countries. Never said huts or aids. The left is melting. Democracy now is antifa in business suits. They are open border soros soldiers.

“White Supremacist” is an oxymoron. They couldn’t even build their own country or government without taking from others.

Earth Lab · January 14, 2018 at 6:06 am

Trump has big kahoni's. He has turned the world against him. He will be the most hated man in the world. That will be the man's legacy. I guess becoming president was worth it?

minceyjs · January 14, 2018 at 6:06 am

They are shithole countries. Don't get offended by the truth.

bob builder · January 14, 2018 at 6:06 am

rainbow painted white house ?

Science not religion · January 14, 2018 at 6:06 am

Just say SHIThole, Amy lol. This isn't a children's or Christian channel.

Science not religion · January 14, 2018 at 6:06 am

I heard "they're shitholes" remark first from Stephen Colbert, and thought it was a joke.

zocker bit · January 14, 2018 at 6:06 am

In Trump we see the dark sides of the american culture, the side of the coin that is usually hidden. The racism has always been there, ignorance, lacking empathy, religous extremism are other things, all hand in hand with the culture to conquer without bothering about the consequences. Today it´s about the humanity. Nothing less!

jagara1 · January 14, 2018 at 6:06 am

How on earth is calling a place a shithole racist?

G Eak · January 14, 2018 at 6:06 am

Democracy Now repeating hate speach and lies Democracy Now repeating Democrat Durbin "opinion" of what POTUS Trump said. Turns out, never said. Democrats hate and hate and hate and hate. The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic—you name it. A basket of deplorables. Democracy repeats Hate speach.

Ericka Cole-Callwood · January 14, 2018 at 6:06 am

"Africa is a continent. Someone should tell him." 😂

Bright Lima · January 14, 2018 at 6:06 am

He is telling it as it is is up to the black race whether they are going to continue to loot more and more of their resources for the benefits of their imperialist masters.

Mohammad Karimabad · January 14, 2018 at 6:06 am

I can't believe that Trump/Drumpf is making diplomats and world leaders say shit hole! No doubt this is one of his legacies.

Latino'sUSA2014 · January 14, 2018 at 6:06 am

Trump is right. Who cares what the world think. Any dark skin person on here, ask yourself, what can I do?

Silver Teede · January 14, 2018 at 6:06 am

Sieg hail

FAWEXX · January 14, 2018 at 6:06 am

trump is right though. Africans cannot even form proper governments. they kill and attack each other, Rob themselves and cannot even build shit.

BWDivaLove · January 14, 2018 at 6:06 am

Excuse me Mr Dumpster, ummmmm your wife came from a very poor country, no form of higher education because she was busy modeling full frontal nude, and banging other females in porn movies….trash

Nazz Boner · January 14, 2018 at 6:06 am

Trump is right, that's why we voted for him.

trev moffatt · January 14, 2018 at 6:06 am

That Trump should have such opinions is hardly a revelation (I'd be surprised if he didn't have such opinions) – but the fact he blurts them out in front of Democrats campaigning for the Dreamers, demonstrates a serious lack of judgement. I mean Trump was never this dumb. So maybe he has got early stage dementia after all.

Reminds me of my senile grandma – when she told my girlfriend 'you should go on a diet, you're getting a fat arse'.

Just a total lack of social awareness; she just couldn't stop saying offensive stuff at the most inappropriate times. If it came into her mind – she'd just blurt it out

Harvey Cotton · January 14, 2018 at 6:06 am

M. Goodman takes three minutes just to describe the word. Just say it and bleep it out. Crikey.

Matthew Rider · January 14, 2018 at 6:06 am

Fact: 50 of the WORST countries on the planet (in terms of GDP per capita) are indeed "non-white" SHIT HOLES, and a majority of them are in Africa. Many regions in Africa don't even have running water or electricity.

Fact: Haiti is indeed a SHIT HOLE. If you don't believe this, then try living there for a few months.

Fact: If you are offended by the truth, then the problem lies with you.

No Reason · January 14, 2018 at 6:06 am

Too much fucking haitian un France, Im tired….

A D · January 14, 2018 at 6:06 am

Haiti is an absolute shithole, and Trump did nothing wrong.

Jordan Frazier · January 14, 2018 at 6:06 am

Trump is disgusting. Elections cant come soon enough.

Debra B erg · January 14, 2018 at 6:06 am

This show is a stupid worthless waste of space. These commentators and guests are disgusting twisted liars, and unworthy to be Americans.
The homeless veterans should not be having to share anything with immigrants who cost us. That includes almost all Haitians and Salvadorans.
These immigrants are not here for freedom, they are here for free stuff. Everyone from a shithole (other than white) country wants to come to the white world.
White people make nice countries to live in. African people don’t. Neither do Hispanics. Facts don’t care about your whinny opinions.
Please move from the USA, to a shithole country that you can appreciate. Don’t write or call, no one needs to hear the shit coming from out of your mouth. You couldn’t look stupider if you tried. MAGA

Layla Rose · January 14, 2018 at 6:06 am

Trump comes from a racist background, so it is not surprising that this damn Orange Cheeto would also be damn a racist lets not forget who is father was people. And, since he wants to call Haiti and African countries "shitholes" lets not forget how the country of Haiti and the Continent of Africa got in those positions in the first damn place, lets see the Trumptards and the Orange Chetto explain why Africa and Haiti are in those horrid conditions, I can assure they won't, because they're all low I.Q., having turds for brains, bigoted hate-filled racists, and that's the cold hard truth about it all. These are the same people who keep voting Republican. And, they keep allowing those same Republicans to keep taking away the social safety net of this country little by little, these people just like the Orange Chetto they praise all damn time, are low I.Q. having idiots. And, I also stand by every word I'm saying, because I said what I damn said, and that's damn that.

Keldrath · January 14, 2018 at 6:06 am

The first part comes off as classist to me not racist, but the rest is clearly racist. But really he's denigrating large groups of people, but not nearly as many as his grab em by the pussy remark did. Since that did no damage to him, I doubt this will either.

Richard Oranger · January 14, 2018 at 6:06 am

Haiti is a shithole

Cushite Calisthenics · January 14, 2018 at 6:06 am

LMAO, I'm dead. "They all have Aids" LMAO. This fucker has lost his mind

Pubic Lice · January 14, 2018 at 6:06 am

they ARE shitholes. fix them or fuck off.

Graham6762 · January 14, 2018 at 6:06 am

How dare the jews at the UN tell us who to let in.  Why is every other country allowed to have restrictions but not us.  Destroy the UN building. Blow it up if you have to.

Dalek Supreme · January 14, 2018 at 6:06 am

Those are SERIOUS shithole countries! why else does everyone always try to LEAVE. People of the shitholes of the world… stay home, improve your home. Some day, you won't want to jump on a banana boat to escape your shithole. Just getting offended by someone like Trump telling the truth achieves nothing.

KC Clifton · January 14, 2018 at 6:06 am

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! "Racist" because it IS a shithole? What happened to all those MILLION$ and MILLION$ of CLINTON FOUNDATION DONATIONS?????? GEE….I WONDER!!!????

Timothy Ross · January 14, 2018 at 6:06 am

this is shithole news

Dana Lee · January 14, 2018 at 6:06 am

You can't look at a book and say, "I don't like that book" based its cover without reading what is inside the pages. You can't judge the author without knowing their potential. If you deny the author the potential may never be.
Everyone deserves the chance and ability to reach their potential without boundaries and prejudices. Every human being deserves the right to better their circumstances for themselves and their families. To live in peace have security and achieve their dreams.
Noone should be judged based on colour, race, ethnicity, religion, or place of birth. Certainly, a people or person should not be dismissed because of escaping famine, war, horrific conditions completely out of their control or ability to change them! ( not that they did not try or that they were lazy and worthless)

In answer to your question, Mr Tom Kurtz, Yes, I would enjoy any vacation time going to any one of the places you mentioned because Norway is awesome but doesn't need me, those places you mentioned do.
So I would gladly spend my vacation in a humanitarian way because that is what I know would give me the most gratification knowing I am doing something far more profound than laying on a beach just sipping on a pina colada contemplating how wonderful MY life is!
This Country would not be what it is today without the diverseness we share. I love the melting pot and I love the mixture of people I meet every day.
I would not be the person I am if not for the rich diverseness I grew up with.

The sooner we realize we ALL have something in common and to contribute and realize we are more the same than not and given the same opportunities with the right to achieve them this World will be a better place!

Brett Badgwell · January 14, 2018 at 6:06 am

It is kind of a shit hole.

Missna Missna · January 14, 2018 at 6:06 am

The Amazing Lucas · January 14, 2018 at 6:06 am

They're NOT shithole countries, which is why people aren't leaving to come to the U.S…..oh wait.

John Smith · January 14, 2018 at 6:06 am

Haiti is a shithole..

SecretaryOfState · January 14, 2018 at 6:06 am

STOP with the "ESS-Hole" pronunciation Democracy Now. Just say what he said. He was not embarrassed to say it, so clearly he meant for it to be known. Next time you speak on this matter, preface your segment with "The following contains direct quotations from the President of the United States and may not be suitable for minors. Viewer discretion is advised." Then say all the SHIT you want.

Richard M Williams · January 14, 2018 at 6:06 am

i love you DN. say shithole. the president of the USA said it. do it. say it.

Tom Kurtz · January 14, 2018 at 6:06 am

Democracy Now is a shit- hole program led by shit-hole Killary-supporting Trump-hating sexist Amy Goodman. Why don't you , Amy, get a job with Killary and kill anybody that discovers more of her criminality.
