AU Spokeswoman Ebba Kalondo pointed out the USA role in the Atlantic slave trade as an example of how African countries, Trump described in contemptuous terms, were exploited in a shameful manner.
US President Donald Trump desperately sought Friday to quell a growing storm triggered by his reported description of African nations, Haiti and El Salvador as "shithole" countries, in a slur denounced as "racist" by the United Nations.
Trump has falsely claimed that other countries use the diversity visa lottery to send their "worst people" to the U.S.
Duncan is not among them. Mr Durbin told reporters in Chicago.
Duncan, who is seeking re-election in November, will face either Anderson Democrat Mary Geren or Seneca's Hosea Cleveland.
Though candidates typically release some details of their medical history during their campaigns for the presidency, Trump bucked that trend.
"Jesus Christ himself, a person of color, an immigrant, would not be welcome in Trump America", Geren wrote on her Facebook page.
"Please hold a vigil like we are holding today". They have overwhelmingly, regardless of their origin or skin color, positively added to our economy and culture.
This was the white nationalist vision of America that was promoted by Trump and his disgraced adviser Steve Bannon in the campaign.
Cleveland commented through his Twitter account.
Multiple books have relayed the President's affinity for fast food, and The New York Times he consumes a dozen Diet Cokes a day.
Trump's alleged remarks have caused outrage across the world with officials in African, European, Latin American countries and United Nations expressing condemnation and summoning USA diplomats in protest. "Love conquers ALL folks: KEEP LIVING THE DREAM". Jessie Duarte of South Africa's ruling ANC said on Friday: "Ours is not a s***hole country and neither is Haiti or any other country in distress".
Tim Scott, R-S.C., called Trump's remarks "disappointing".
Presidential aide Marc Short said the White House was nowhere near a bipartisan deal on immigration.
The reference was to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which shields from deportation almost 800,000 immigrants brought to the country illegally as children.
Trump seemed to deny making the remark, but multiple senators from both parties that were in the meeting either confirmed or did not dispute it.
"I think it's going to go very well", he said, adding that he would be "surprised if it doesn't".
"The president and all those attending the meeting know what I said and how I feel", Graham continued. "I would not talk about nations like this, because I believe the people of those countries are made in the image of God and have worth and human dignity".
The issue is that the American people deserve to have a solution to the immigration crisis, here in the USA we have a situation that future immigrants are determined by only 1 group of people, and that is current immigrants.
