Sean Penn: 'Donald Trump Is the Enemy of Compassion'

African anger about Trump's comments, made during a White House meeting on immigration, could impact United States companies doing business in one of the world's fastest growing regions and complicate the Pentagon's counterterrorism efforts and security cooperation on the continent, diplomats and analysts said.

President Donald Trump spent Thursday night making a flurry of phone calls to friends and advisers - denying he was racist but defending his disparaging comments about Haitians and African countries - as something many people think, but won't say.

Durbin said Trump specifically asked, "Do we need more Haitians?" before launching into a diatribe about African immigration.

Jackson has released a statement, saying Trump's physical exam went exceptionally well."The President is in excellent health and I look forward to briefing some of the details on Tuesday", he added. "They contribute. And there is no disputing the value they add to American society".

Roughly 13,000 of the state's immigrants came from Haiti and 5,600 people came from El Salvador. The administration also recently ended protections for El Salvador, Nicaragua and Sudan, among others.

Also present at the meeting were the House majority leader, Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif.; Rep. Robert Goodlatte, R-Va., the chairman of the Judiciary Committee; and Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, R-Fla.

Even taking more highly skilled laborers from Central America and Africa leads to "brain drain" in vulnerable nations, Camarota said.
Trump allegedly said in referrence to African countries and Haiti.

Instead, Cuomo lauded the United States for welcoming all "no matter what race, what color, what creed, what income level, what education level", and as an experiment that's worked well.

A year earlier, Dr. Harold Bornstein said in a December 2015 letter: "If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency". "Neither Haiti nor Africa were mentioned".

"We would not deign to make comments as derogatory as that about any country that has any kind of socio-economic or other difficulties", Duarte said, adding that much like their African counterparts, millions of U.S. citizens were affected by problems such as unemployment. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime.
