“If they are confirmed, they are scandalous and shameful comments from the president of the United States, I’m sorry but the only word that can be used is ‘racist,'” Rupert Colville, spokesperson for the Human Rights Office of the United States, told reporters. UN in Geneva.

“It is not just a matter of language vulgarity,” he said, considering it intolerable to denigrate countries and an entire continent and to consider that “its entire population, which is not white, is not welcome.”

These words show “the worst side of humanity, validating and encouraging racism and xenophobia,” he added.

Trump received on Thursday in the oval office several senators, among them the Republican Lindsey Graham and the Democrat Richard Durbin, to talk about a bipartisan project that proposes to limit family reunification and restrict access to the lottery of residence permits.

In return, the agreement would allow the expulsion of thousands of young people, mostly Latin Americans, who arrived in the United States as children.

“Why do all these people from shitty countries come here?” Trump asked, sources told The Washington Post.

According to these sources, the president made reference to countries in Africa, as well as to Haiti and El Salvador, affirming that the United States should receive in its place citizens of Norway, with whose prime minister had met the day before.
