Trump denies Haiti slur amid fallout from negative comment

Trump denies Haiti slur amid fallout from negative comment

"I'm sorry, but there's no other word one can use but racist". "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!" Trump also allegedly asked, "Why do we need more Haitians?". He said USA doesn't need them. Never said 'take them out.' Made up by Dems.

"I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians", the president said. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!" he wrote.

"When the question was raised about Haitians, for example, we have a group that have temporary protected status in the United States because they were the victims of crises and disasters and political upheaval". The White House did not deny Thursday that Trump used the vulgarity, first reported by The Washington Post and later confirmed by numerous other news outlets.

Trump's reportedly crude outburst against migrants from the African continent and Haiti have set off a firestorm of global rebuke.

On Friday morning, Fox & Friends - the president's favorite morning news show - actually, incredibly, criticized Trump for the reported remark.

And Haitian ambassador Paul Altidor told MSNBC that Haiti believes Trump was "either misinformed or miseducated about Haiti and its people."

The bipartisan immigration deal has been a hot-button issue, and lawmakers are working to come up with a plan.

In recounting the meeting, Durbin suggested that Trump's "shitholes" slur was aimed at African nations. Those briefed about the meeting told The Washington Post that the president singled out Haiti, and said immigrants from that country should be left out of any deal. Trump met this week with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg. The White House did not deny them. Lindsey Graham challenged those comments, which Durbin called an act of courage. "He's president of the United States". He has said Mexican immigrants were "bringing crime" and were "rapists".

He recounted to reporters what he heard: "He said, 'Haitians? He said these hate-filled things, and he said them repeatedly". But it wasn't just Democrats objecting.

Trump's latest racist comments came just after his administration announced it is ending temporary protected status for up to 250,000 Salvadorans who have been living in the US since at least 2001. "President, this is the United States of America, '" added Murphy, a frequent Trump critic and a former USA ambassador to Germany under Obama, Trump's Democratic predecessor.
