Trump’s views on race in spotlight following remarks about Haiti, African nations
Claims U.S. President Donald Trump questioned the value of taking immigrants from Haiti and African nations, and referred to them as “shithole countries,” had many focusing on his views on race over the weekend.
The remarks leaked out, transforming a debate about saving from deportation some 700,000 young immigrants brought to the country illegally as children into another drama about Trump himself.
His comments drew a chorus of condemnation inside the United States and internationally, especially in Africa.
Nearly a year into Trump’s presidency, members of Congress are still struggling to relate to the unorthodox Trump and his spontaneous, often crude remarks.
U.S. President Donald Trump said on Sunday (January 14) that a program protecting young immigrants brought to the United States illegally by their parents would probably be discontinued.
Trump has previously said he would end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA.
“DACA is probably dead because the Democrats don’t really want it, they just want to talk and take desperately needed money away from our military,” Trump wrote on Twitter.
