African ambassadors demand apology from Trump

The exact word used by the president.

One of the six senators who crafted the bipartisan deal, Democrat Michael Bennet of Colorado, said Saturday that the proposal "has everything the president asked for on the border".

While some of his evangelical backers expressed support for his leadership, many evangelical leaders who defended him in the past would not comment on the remarks.

DA leader Mmusi Maimane called Trump's comments "abhorrent The hatred of Obama's roots now extends to an entire continent".

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of SC, one of the six senators in the meeting with Trump on Thursday, supported Durbin's account. The US Military also carries out training and advisory missions in other African countries, with hundreds of troops performing that mission in Niger and Somalia. "I'm the least racist person you have ever interviewed".

On subjects from North Korea, to Russian Federation, to the president's surprise call for a ban on transgender people in the military last summer, Trump's tendency to tweet his mind has blindsided advisers and, in some cases, complicated or even upended administration policy. He did not address the reports that he disparaged African nations and ignored questions about the comments from reporters.

CNN's Don Lemon was not the only black anchor to call President Donald Trump what he is.

So it sounded as if Trump might be in favor of limiting potential FISA abuses. "Beautiful, hardworking people. We have diamonds, gold, iron, cobalt, uranium, copper, bauxite, silver, petroleum, cocoa, coffee etc", Mwangi said. Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton also claimed the President's remarks were mischaracterized, saying, "I didn't hear it, and I was sitting no further away from Donald Trump than Dick Durbin was".

Trump has long held the belief that he is his most effective spokesman and believes a sign of loyalty is having supporters and aides come to his defense.

Some African governments found themselves in an awkward position, as top recipients of U.S. aid, especially as Trump has sought to slash foreign assistance."Unless it was specifically said about South Sudan, we have nothing to say", South Sudan government spokesperson Ateny Wek Ateny said.

"While the messaging points about the president and his agenda are all over the place, his frame is the same", Katz said. When Feinstein asked again if he would be agreeable to this approach, Trump said, "Yeah, I would like to do that".

Late-show hosts also were quick to jump on the comments Thursday evening, mocking the president.

In a separate statement, United Nations ambassadors from every country on the continent demanded a retraction and apology from Trump.

Among the medical professionals who wrote the letter, at least 15 made contributions to Democrats, and at least two have donated to Republicans, according to FEC records; however, not all have and many are well known experts in their field, from the United States, Canada and Germany.

"I don't think this will just blow over", said Peter Lewis, director of African Studies at Johns Hopkins University's School of Advanced International Studies. Lindsey Graham, a Republican senator, described the reports as "basically accurate".

On Sunday, Trump said: "Did you see what various senators in the room said about my comments?"

But nothing compares to the extent that Trump goes, being the president, of the social network Twitter. Though a backlash to his remarks from all quarters was swift.

Jackson received an urgent letter from dozens of doctors and health professionals Thursday urging him to perform basic mental health tests on the President.

"Trump's election could be a blessing in disguise", Bernice King said. "He wants to help our community". While recounting her parents' story, Laventure had to comment on the vulgarity and lack of decorum Trump displayed. And other Trump backers made clear they wanted to steer clear of questions about whether the president is a racist.

Still, "we would not deign to make comments as derogatory", Duarte said.
