Donald Trump blatantly referred to Hati and African nations as “shithole countries” during a meeting with lawmakers on Thursday.
As reported by the Washington Post, Trump’s comments were made during a sit down with senators at the Oval Office to discuss a path forward on an immigration deal. The president reportedly questioned why the U.S. would want to meet with people from nations such as Haiti and El Salvador.
When it came to discussing immigration from Africa, our Cheeto in Chief asked why would America want immigrants from “all these shithole countries” and that the U.S. should be more inventing to places like Norway.
One of the sources familiar with Thursday’s meeting said Trump also questioned the need for Haitians in the United States.
It should come as no surprise that Trump is speaking unfavorably about immigrants. The New York Times reported in December that he said Haitian immigrants “all have AIDS.”
The Times also said Trump targeted Nigerian immigrants during that meeting, complaining that once they experience life in America they would never “go back to their huts.”
