A woman sells fish on a street in Lagos, Nigeria, Friday, Jan. 12, 2018. Africans were shocked on Friday to find President Donald Trump had finally taken an interest in their continent. But it wasn't what people had hoped for. Using vulgar language, Trump on Thursday questioned why the U.S. would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "s---hole countries" in Africa rather than places like Norway in rejecting a bipartisan immigration deal. On Friday he denied using that language.
