Trump's Immigration Slur Angers House Democrats

According to The Washington Post, during an Oval Office meeting on Thursday with us senators to discuss the status of some immigrants in the country, President Trump described Haiti, El Salvador and unspecified African countries as "shitholes".

During a White House meeting Thursday on immigration reform, President Donald Trump reportedly referred to African nations as "sh**hole countries".

"Like all Americans who embrace decency and the values of diversity and inclusion, and who celebrate what made America great in the first place, I'm appalled by these latest comments of President Donald Trump regarding Haitians and people of African nations", Pugh said in a statement.

He also denied saying "anything derogatory about Haitians other than that Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country".

The president's thoughts on immigration sprawled through several Twitter posts on Friday morning before he tweeted his denials about some of the language he used at the DACA meeting.

The president also asked why the United States would allow more immigrants from Haiti and Africa rather than countries like Norway.

"Why do we need more Haitians?"

Botswana also said it had summoned the United States ambassador to that country, Earl Miller, to "express its displeasure" and had asked Miller whether Botswana "is regarded as a "s**thole" country".

A source familiar with the meeting told CNN's Jake Tapper the President did not refer to Haiti as a "shithole" country but Trump did ask why the U.S. needs more Haitians and pushed to "take them out" of the deal.

Last fall, the Department of Homeland Security canceled the Temporary Protected Status for Haitian immigrants. He revealed this during a meeting with congressional leaders in the Oval Office over immigration issues. "He said these hate-filled things". "I want to see the tape". Mr Trump said after being presented with a proposal to restore protections for immigrants from the countries in question.

The US President touted the delivery of F-52 jets to Norway, but they only exist in the video game Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Why should we accept any less from the President of the United States of America?

"I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians", the president said.

Botswana said it had summoned the USA ambassador to that country to "express its displeasure" and had asked him whether Botswana "is regarded as a "sh**hole" country".
