WEST PALM BEACH (Reuters) – US President Donald Trump insisted yesterday “I’m not a racist” in response to reports that he had described immigrants from Haiti and African countries as coming from “shithole countries”. Mr Trump also said he was “ready, willing and able” to reach a deal to protect illegal immigrants brought to the US as children from being deported but that he did not believe Democrats wanted an agreement. He tweeted earlier yesterday that the existing programme would “probably” be discontinued. Asked by a reporter in Florida whether he was a racist, Mr Trump said: “No. I’m not a racist. I’m the least racist person you have ever interviewed.”
