United States President Donald Trump's comment on the immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries has drawn criticism and condemnation from across the world with senators, artists and the twitterati calling him out for blatant racism.
Activist Amy Sikind said, "This man is simply NOT fit for office. He is a disgrace!
"Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?"
This guy is a Republican Congressman. I almost feel bad for him."
While US Immigration Attorney David Leopold said, "With his #Shithole countries slur Trump has confirmed what those of us who work in #immigration law & policy have known since early last year; the Administration's draconian #immigration enforcement crackdown is a racist policy aimed at immigrants of color."
Another twitteratti Matthew Miller said, "Just imagine how often Trump says racist things and there aren't Democratic Senators in the room to leak it out."
This comes after Trump described immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries as "shithole" countries during a meeting with lawmakers, when they floated restoring protections for immigrant from these nations.
