(President Donald Trump Calls Ash holes Immigrants Badly)
Donald Trump’s reported remark branding Haiti, El Salvador and unspecified African nations as “s***hole countries” has been branded racist by a UN human rights official.
“If confirmed these are shocking and shameful comments from the President of the United States,” spokesperson Rupert Coleville said.
“There is no other word you can use but ‘racist’.”
The US President made the comment during a meeting with congressional leaders in the Oval Office on Thursday, according to US media.
“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” Mr Trump said after being presented with a proposal to restore protections for immigrants from the countries in question.
Even Though Mr Trump eventually issued a denial on Twitter, saying the language he used was “tough” but different to what was claimed.
