Caribbean condemns shocking Trump comments

President Donald Trump

(CNS): Leaders, commentators, pundits and university bosses across the Caribbean have been united this weekend in their condemnation of the alleged insults made by US President Donald Trump about the Haitian people and some African countries, which he had labeled as sh**-holes during a meeting last week. CARICOM issued a statement on behalf of its member states calling the unenlightened views expressed by Trump “derogatory and repulsive”. 

Offering support to the Haitian government’s dignified response, CARICOM said Haitians continue to contribute significantly to the global community, and particularly to the United States of America, and Trump’s insults were totally unacceptable. Around 90 Pan-African organisations and leaders in the Caribbean also declared Trump persona non grata for the racist remarks he made during a meeting at the White House.

The comments joined a chorus of concern from around the region. University of the West Indies Vice-Chancellor Professor Sir Hilary Beckles said that Haiti is this region’s mother of modern democracy and the president’s comments were a “brutal bashing of basic truths”.

Haiti’s ambassador to the US, Paul Altidor, said Monday that President Donald Trump’s comments “hurt the country”. He told CNN that “such words shouldn’t be coming out of anybody’s mouth, let alone the President of the United States”.

The racist and insulting remarks were reportedly stated by the president during a meeting at the White House. Although he admitted using strong language during meeting with senators over proposed immigration legislation, Trump has denied making the specific remarks attributed to him.

But Democratic Senator Dick Durbin, who was in the meeting reported on the comments immediately and Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, who was also present, has indicated that the reports were true.

After fellow Republican Senators Tom Cotton and David Perdue, who initially said they did not “recall” what the president had said, later outright denied that Trump had made the comments, Graham came close to calling them liars, saying that his “memory hasn’t evolved” about the meeting. “I know what was said and I know what I said,” Graham said Monday.

Despite a long list of comments since he began his campaign to become the US president that are arguably racist, Trump repeatedly said Monday that he is the least racist person anyone has ever met, his oft-stated mantra in the wake of the regular allegations of racism. The New York Times published a list Monday of all the comments and actions that can be confirmed and attributed to Trump that most would consider racist. There were more than 30 incidents on the list.

    News Broke today, The Trump Admin is attempting to ban Haitians from applying for seasonal and farm work visas in the US

    He doesn’t want persons from “shithole” countries picking oranges and other citrus fruits I guess
    Cause Americans are in line for those high paying fruit picking jobs right?

    How long before Cayman is on that list of “shithole” countries?

        For sure West Bay Premier, and there is possibly an incredible irony in this story. My question is this, is Trump’s mother a McLeod from the island of Lewis in the Scottish Hebrides, and was she possibly one of the many persons offered ten shillings to seek their fortune elsewhere due to limited opportunities being available, as well as a growing inbreeding problem, and furthermore, did she enter the US legally? Could the island of Lewis be classified as a “shit hole” as it was in those days? What a possible incredible irony.

        The case of Haiti is a very tragic one, where exploitation and even military occupation by the US with little lasting benefit being left behind, has partially contributed to it’s being classified as a sh… hole. Trump the chump should do more research into the relevant history of these situations before planting his large foot into his equally large mouth!!

      Thank heavens, the Mueller investigation has been concluded every one should be happy with the results.
      1) Putin is a Russian.
      2) He medeled in the last seven Russian elections.
      3) He was a member of the communist party.
      4) He worked for the KGB.
      The democrats will now form an impeachment committe headed by Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Maxine Waters.
      My personal take?—— Putin is guilty as hell.

    The WH is now actively coordinating with witnesses, to ensure that they can get out of as many questions as possible, reports across multiple platforms confirm that questions from the Intel Committee to Bannon were relayed to the WH and instructions were sent back

    and Trumptards claim innocence

    Why do you need to confirm the Truth with WH lawyers and counsel
    The truth (if there was nothing done wrong) should be incontrovertible

    The only time you need to coordinate your responses is when someone is lying

    Sorry to break it to you, but the Trump Admin is filled with liars and they will get caught eventually Mueller will not rest until his job is done (the same man you are trying to get removed was praised by the GOP when he was appointed)

        Why doesn’t Trump sue them for Libel and defamation

        think about that, perhaps the news isn’t fake
        or else he would be winning cases and getting retractions and damages

            Actually What Clinton said could more easily be construed as racism when you consider the fact that a few years prior to becoming the president, Obama was a U.S. senator, a published author an attorney and a Harvard graduate. To cut him down to someone who “fetches coffee” goes well beyond anything Trump may have said especially when you consider what Clinton said was patently false. Not sure there was any racial intent there, but casting Obama in a roll as a servant to an old white guy would more easily lend itself to that interpretation.

            Where was the full throated liberal media( I repeat myself) meltdown then? There wasn’t any meltdown because unlike Trump, Clinton is a liberal democrat.
            The double standard is pretty striking.

We are actually both being philosophically honest. You reflexively and consistently assign the worst motives to people and I reflexively tend to give people the benefit of the doubt.

                Or maybe you only do this when it’s a matter of race. I don’t know you at all. I do know myself however and I do give people the benefit of the doubt in a general sense.

                The larger point I was making however is the double standard, particularly where the press is concerned.

              You do realize that it is possible for persons to commit multiple crimes at once right or to commit crimes to hide past crimes?

              Trump’s campaign and administration in their attempts to subvert attention and to end the investigation on possible 2016 Collusion with the Ruskies, fired James Comey to end an ongoing criminal investigation by the FBI and thus obstructed justice (Trump admitted he fired Comey because of “the Russia thing” so good luck arguing that one)
              In the investigation of the possible collusion and obstruction of Justice it has been revealed that members of the Trump Admin and Campaign had financial ties to Russia and other foreign powers (Flynn, Manafort, Papadopolous, and some if not all have plead guilty and flipped on Trump) Due to these financial ties Trump’s own finances are now being investigated by Mueller as well.

              Trump is his own worst enemy, by firing Comey he obstructed justice and added further legitimacy to the investigation and by hiring persons with ties to foreign governments (which the Obama administration advised him not to do) he put himself ever closer to being investigated fully

              I know it’s hard for you to understand being a Mindless MAGA (or maggot) but this investigation has evolved into what it is today because of Trump’s stupidity

              Try not to be stupid in public, ( I know you love emulating your president but try your best to be a big boy)

              and for the record any one of these crimes is justification for impeachment, it is likely he did all of these things

              The GOP is certainly hypocritical, after all obstruction of Justice and perjury were what they want after him for (some of the exact same members of the GOP are still currently in power)

              Then again the GOP have always been hypocrites, if it isn’t states rights hypocrisy, its family values hypocrisy

      Be honest and you’ll see that is what Trump was saying.

      CNS: You also appear to agree with Trump that people from Haiti and Africa – places where they are predominately black – are uneducated and unemployable, while people from Norway, where they are predominately white, are preferable. He did not say the US wants educated, employable immigrants; he essentially said the US wants white immigrants. That’s the point and that’s why people are reacting so strongly.

        Imagine that. He did not state the obvious, you are correct and I’m sure that is a radical position according to you and your ilk.

        2. That he prefers white people over black people.

        CNS You make a leap in judgement that the criticism is racist when the areas focused upon are grossly troubled regardless of race. Denial of those troubles because of fear of being labeled racist is racist.
        It is like pretending that Mexico is not a severely troubled country or that the desired control of one’s borders is racist.
        BULL.

        CNS: According to Senator Durbin, Trump said, “Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” and that the US should focus on bringing in more immigrants from Norway. Lindsey Graham has confirmed this account, and said he directly confronted Trump about them at the time. Trump himself confirmed the report when he called friends after the meeting to see how they were going down. Your argument is that yes, he did say them but they are not racist. If you can’t see it I have no more to say.

          Come on CNS. This is exactly what people are moaning about that when convenient it is made about color or race. Every time someone makes any negative comparison to a minority group or a different race it becomes a racist issue.

          Are you seriously concluding that USA has the same amount of refugees from Norway as there are from African countries? Would you have been outraged if he would have said the opposite (ie he didn’t want people from Norway). Probably not…

          The fact is that the majority of third world countries are in Africa and that statistically speaking people from there seeking to migrate to another country are more likely to end up collecting some sort of welfare or benefit as the chances that they are uneducated or have a bigger family to support is much higher. It has nothing to do with color. Nobody says this is the case because people are black. We need to stop this politically correctness garbage and be able to accept facts.

              Yeah, OK, so Trump didn’t approve it. Neither did Obummer or Bushy.
              Did you get the part about 2001? Are you with us? He was elected in 2017. Please don’t remove your dunce cap.

    Honestly CNS I feel it for y’all, generally great reporting and information in a timely fashion, stories that Cayman cares about only to be met with the same cries of fake news as our northern warmongering Geo-political dominating nuclear buddy.

    The MAGA contagion has spread to our shores and sadly not everyone was inoculated ( though we already know this, Cayman is a mini america in all but name)

    I say we cut our loses and cast the infected off where they can be among their own kind, perhaps Little Cayman?

    Trump’s Idea for a wall might not be so bad

    Sounds like a bunch of outraged Caymanians speaking up about what they deem to be a racist comment from a man in the USA. Yet, your own government moves forward making decisions that have no positive affect on you or your children’s future. Basically they will sell-out anything possible in order to serve themselves now. Sounds like your own country deems all of you as “second rate” but you are more concerned over some Trump and Haiti stuff. Any chance an article about Trump can get zero comments….obviously not. Clearly things are on the right path in Cayman and there are no concerns. Sunny day at the beach, eh?

It’s been far too long since the last mass shooting in the US which broke the record for being the worst mass shooting in US history, and they’re over due for another considering the present statistics pertatining to all the mass shooting US undergoes. America is a shitcanyon with hundreds of thousands if not millions of mentally ill deranged trigger happy lunatics, just take a look at their police and how many unarmed people they put six feet under.

        There has never been a mass shooting at a School or Church in Honduras.

          Try looking the statistics, most mass murders in the US are cuased by blacks. That is a fact that the media tries to cover up by only showcasing white mass murders.

          CNS: This statement is bunk. According to these statistics, black were responsible for 16% mass shootings between 1982 and November 2017, while whites were responsible for 54%. However, PunditFact, ruling on the claim ‘Are white males responsible for more mass shootings than any other group?’ ruled it ‘mostly true’, noting that the percentage of mass shootings by white men is lower than their share of the male population.

      The problem with today society is that everyone wants everything for nothing.how would you feel if you had a mass exodus of any country to Cayman creating havoc on health care, infrastructure, clogging up the education system, the work force and worst, disease. Grow up and be a man or woman and recognize the man is looking out for his country and his citizens. Wish our government would consider a similar plan, like border control for one…..stop the illegal drugs, weapons and people landing on our shores. Do you recall the Camana Bay armed robbery or the alleged murderer living amongst us in Prospect or the guy who was shot by police. Wake up sir/madam, law abiding citizen needs the reassurance and protection for these type of crimes. If you don’t agree, let’s wait until someone you love is caught in the middle of one of these crimes. I am certain Trump does not want to stop legal persons entering America, just follow the requirements and any person would be ok. Remember, we are considered a money laundering, fugitive harboring and drug island but we still get into America once we abide by their rules.
