Trump refers to Haiti and African countries as “shithole” nations

This damn racist thug…..What will you and do about this racist bum in the Oval Office ? Your silence on this matter  will be considered condoning his hatred for black people. We are damn tired of the racist attacks on blacks and POC.

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump on Thursday referred to Haiti and African nations as “shithole countries” during a meeting with a bipartisan group of senators at the White House, a Democratic aide briefed on the meeting told NBC News.

Trump’s comments were first reported by The Washington Post, which said the group of nations referred to also included El Salvador.

The comments came as senators huddled in the Oval Office with the president to discuss a path forward on an immigration deal. Trump questioned why the United States would want people from nations such as Haiti while he was being briefed on changes to the visa lottery system.

According to the aide, when the group came to discussing immigration from Africa, Trump asked why America would want immigrants from “all these shithole countries” and that the U.S. should have more people coming in from places like Norway. Thursday’s meeting came one day after Trump met with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg at the White House.

A source familiar with Thursday’s meeting told NBC News the president was particularly frustrated during discussions about the visa lottery system — a program Trump has railed against repeatedly in recent months. Another White House source explained the language Trump used as his way of trying to emphasize his support for a merit-based immigration system.

The White House issued a statement that did not deny the remarks.

“Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people,” White House Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah told NBC Thursday, as part of a lengthy statement that did not directly dispute the language reportedly used in the meeting.

“He will always reject temporary, weak and dangerous stopgap measures that threaten the lives of hardworking Americans, and undercut immigrants who seek a better life in the United States through a legal pathway.”

It’s not the first time reports have surfaced of Trump speaking unfavorably about immigrants, and Haitians in particular. The New York Times reported in December that Trump said Haitian immigrants “all have AIDS,” during a summer 2017 meeting about immigration.

According to the Times, Trump also targeted Nigerian immigrants during that meeting, complaining that once they came the United States they would never “go back to their huts.” The White House vigorously denied the claims in the story at the time.

  3. I simply hate him more than I ever thought I could. We want this trash gone from our White House.

    Trump put his foot in his mouth this time. He stirred up a hornet’s nest with his latest racist comment. It’s gonna get worse until they get him out of the White House. He needs to go! As long as Paul Ryan is Speaker of the House, it’s gonna be hard to get him out of the White House. Ryan and the GOP are blocking those efforts.

    TRUMP NEEDS TO RESIGN! He needs to go! It’s personal now. Blood is thicker than mud.

    My grandfather was Haitian. Some of my kinfolks still live there. One of them is a voodoo priest. While I’m praying about Trump on this end, I bet cuz is working voodoo on his end after Trump’s lastest derogatory remark. LOL! Btw, I don’t believe he’s practicing fake voodoo like they have in New Orleans for tourist attractions.

    My African ancestors were Cameroonian, Fulani, Woolof, Nigerian, Bambara, and Yoruba. They came from Cameroon/Congo, Senegal, Mali, Benin Togo, Ghana, Nigeria. Through DNA test I came in contact with one of my Africa relatives who told me some of my African family history.

    Btw, I’m sure y’all read about this, but if not…

    Among others, Joy Ann Reid (sitting in for Chris Hayes tonight) – and her guests …and Anderson Cooper’s closing note tonight, were a reminder that the buffoon and those who surround him – including John Kelly, retired general …are not in fact the final word on who and what America is to become now, and after these unlikely times …courtesy of a hostile foreign entity, and the White Supremacists who’ve been emboldened by it all..

    Rich Lowry of the National Review and his twin Noah Rothman, like Tucker Carlson, are quasi-preppy bow-tied variations of that dangerous White Supremacist presence that is being steadily mainstreamed and normalized in our media..

    I’m quite curious to know what exactly Van Jones finds ‘very admirable’ about the buffoon’s vapid, uneducated, gold-digging, imported, silicone-filled courtesan turned 3rd wife – and proud Birther who continues to cultivate and play footsie with the Alt-Right who make up the bulk of her cheerleaders.. Or is it simply just another of Van Jones’ attempt at disingenuous appeasement of white supremacy in all of its inferior manifestation.. Good for Bakari Sellers for choosing to focus instead on properly contextualizing stuff tonight..

    Someone has to tell Mia Love that it’s not just when your specific kin and ancestral country-folk are targeted for maligning and exclusion, that one suddenly sees and expresses ‘dismay’ at the ‘unkindness and divisiveness’ of the very same full-blown racists that one chooses to align with and long kissed up to …and eyes wide open too, as a black woman..

        “…I think that the issue of Donald Trump’s unfitness for president is completely without controversy except among his most avid supporters. He is the most unfit person to have in this office that I could possibly imagine. But it’s an insult to the mentally ill to say that the reason he shouldn’t be in office is mental illness. He’s a bad person, he’s an ignorant person, he’s impulsive, he’s been like this his entire life…Trump was an idiot at 25, an idiot at 35, at 45, 55. The American people elected an idiot…”

      The fatal wounding to our democracy will be be hard to reverse the longer he and his cohorts are allowed to hold our White House hostage..

      I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the more comfortable they get with the awesome power in and of that hallowed space …and the endless bells and whistles that come with it, the more difficult it’ll be to remove them..

      The need to be gone …the sooner the better.. time is running out..

    His mouth is shaped like a sh*thole!

  20. Trump has BEEN disgracing America since he began his racist campaign. The thing is what will @SpeakerRyan and the @GOP do about it?

    • eliihass says:

      At some point, folks will need to stop with this endlessly bizarre thing of addressing a treasonous buffoon with an unearned title..

      What happened to that ‘Mr’ prefix when it’s most appropriate …the same’Mr’ prefix many of these folks couldn’t stop using for 8 years..
