US ruled by a man using dirty words against nations: Zarif

Tehran, Jan 13, IRNA – A man who has taken power in the United States is unfortunately addressing the world nations with 'vulgar and unacceptable words,' Iranian foreign minister said here on Saturday.

The US president's vulgar words against the nations are unacceptable and unbelievable, and show his lack of understanding, Zarif said at the opening of the first Asian Cultural Dialogue Conference.

On Thursday, US President Donald Trump, in a discussion on the issue of immigration, said 'Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?'

Trump's use of racist words have sparked criticism and the worldwide condemnation of the question.

Hillary Clinton, Trump's democratic rival during presidential campaign, commented on his remarks tweeting 'The anniversary of the devastating earthquake 8 years ago is a day to remember the tragedy, honor the resilient people of Haiti, & affirm America’s commitment to helping our neighbors. Instead, we‘re subjected to Trump’s ignorant, racist views of anyone who doesn’t look like him.'

Trump, on January 11, ridiculed Haitians by referring to the African nations as 'shithole' countries.
