United Methodist Bishops condemn President Trump’s “offensive” remarks against immigrantsWASHINGTON, D.C. - We are appalled by the offensive, disgusting words attributed to President Donald Trump who is said to have referred to immigrants from African countries and Haiti, and the countries themselves, in an insulting and derogative manner. According to various media accounts, President Trump made the remarks during a White House discussion with lawmakers on immigration.As reported, President Trump’s words are not only offensive and harmful, they are racist.We call upon all Christians, especially United Methodists, to condemn this characterization and further call for President Trump to apologize.As United Methodists, we cherish our brothers and sisters from all parts of the world and we believe that God loves all creation regardless of where they live or where they come from. As leaders of our global United Methodist Church, we are sickened by such uncouth language from the leader of a nation that was founded by immigrants and serves as a beacon to the world’s “huddled masses longing to be free.”Thousands of our clergy, laity and other highly skilled, productive citizens are from places President Trump has defamed with his comments. The fact that he also insists the United States should consider more immigrants from Europe and Asia demonstrates the racist character of his comments. This is a direct contradiction of God’s love for all people. Further,these comments on the eve of celebrating Martin Luther King Day belies Dr. King's witness and the United States' on-going battle against racism.We just celebrated the birth of Jesus Christ, whose parents during his infancy, had to flee to Africa to escape from the wrath of King Herod. Millions of immigrants across the globe are running away from such despicable and life-threatening events. Hence, we have the Christian duty to be supportive of them as they flee political, cultural and social dangers in their native homes.We will not stand by and allow our brothers and sisters to be maligned in such a crude manner. We call on all United Methodists, all people of faith, and the political leadership of the United States to speak up and speak against such demeaning and racist comments.Christ reminds us that it is by love that they will know that we are Christians. Let’s demonstrate that love for all of God’s people by saying no to racism; no to discrimination and no to bigotry.

No, the Dems do.
Here we go.... round 10 of the bogus stories. Russia Russia did not work. The fiction book did not work. The Haitian swearing story did not work.
Shame that more GOP members, ranking members, are not speaking out againt DJT's harmful rherotic, and shame on his supporters for trying to defend it. The only cause for racial divide were the people that had extreme pigmentation issues for 8 years, and then voted on the side or racism. DJT is feeding that fire. Anyone, including GOP members of Congress, that condones having a racist, corrupt , and mentally ill president are absolutely just as ignorant, and are without morals.
HE DOESN'T CARE..He has no moral's,respect,integrity,shame,he can't tell the truth,he treats woman like shit.So no he doesn't care pure EVIL.....
Any apology would be hollow and without substance. His narcissistic personality is loving the attention. His racist heart and dead brain only comprehend things that stroke his ego. And his cult followers are doing a hell of a lot of stroking of him.
At least confirm that he said it. Just because The Hill and CNN report it, doesn't mean its true.
My God ... look how they handled the Russian Dossier debacle.
Remember the times the 44 POtUS’ called other continents and countries $%!+holes?🤔 Nobody does. A real President would not do that but it’s just the type of thing a racist PUSSYgrabbing piece of $#!+💩 like Dotard J. tRUMP would do because he truly does represent those who enable, support and vote for him perfectly.
Yeah... He's not the leader of the free world anymore. The position is vacant, and will be until another major country steps up and unifies people, governments and alliances, or until someone way better steps into the POTUS' seat.
I know people have a hard time dealing with a President who speaks the plain, unfettered truth, as we haven't had many of them, if any, since the days of Teddy Roosevelt.
