[Washington,DC] President Trump Says ,He Is Not RACIST
A row broke out last week over Trump’s alleged use of the word “shithole” to describe African nations.
Trump has also cleared another controversy by denied having told a leading US daily that he shared a “good relationship” with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, asserting that he was “falsely” quoted in the “fake news” story.
Trump reportedly used the word to describe African countries during an Oval Office meeting on Thursday with a bipartisan group of six senators on immigration reform.
People briefed on the conversation also say that during the meeting the president also questioned the need to admit more Haitians to the US.
Trump told reporters in Florida ,when entering Trump International Golf Course for a dinner with House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy., I Am Not Racist
Democratic Senator Dick Durbin, who attended the lawmakers’ meeting, said that “shithole” was the “exact word used by the President, not just once but repeatedly”.
“He said these hate filled things and he said them repeatedly,” Durbin said.
On Friday, the African Union expressed “dismay and outrage” at the reports and demanded that Trump apologise.
At least four Democratic lawmakers said that they were boycotting the State of the Union Address of the president to protest against his alleged remarks.
However, one of the Republican Senators who attended the meeting today claimed that Trump never used that word.
Trump has himself denied having used that word but has admitted using “tough” language in the meeting
