Trump Referred To Haiti And African Countries As ‘shithole’ Nations by 9inches(m): 11:33pm On Jan 11, 2018
President Donald Trump referred to a group of nations that included African countries and Haiti as "shithole countries" during a meeting with a bipartisan group of senators on Thursday 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 referenced also included El Salvador.

The comments came as senators huddled in the Oval Office with the president to discuss the path forward on an immigration deal. Trump questioned why the United States would want people from nations such as Haiti, while 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 we want all these people from "all these shithole countries" and that the U.S. should have more people from places like Norway.

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 afternoon, 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."

I Love Donald Trump not Because He is the best president and all that... But I Love His Stand in Returning the USA to Godliness....

He was elected as the President of the USA not Haiti or Africa....

Mean while Our own leaders loot out funds and take to the USA....

Carry on Donald...

How is it 'Big lie' and 'Fake News' when some of the senators at the meeting confirmed it and the WH didn't deny it?

Not far from the truth, matter of fact, he summarized what many of them think and even Africans know. If it's not true, go and stop any African with visa or no visa from travelling out, if that person, their family, and their gang won't handle you appropriately.

LoL, the self deception on display here is amazing. Is it Donald Trump you are referring to as godly? LMAO. "Grab 'em by the pussy" is godly? Calling people fighting for justice "sons of bitches" is godly? Please go and pick up a dictionary and look up the meaning of godly before you type nonsense.

He did not say Trump is Godly, rather that he's returning the country to Godliness. I'm pretty sure he meant restoring and promoting religious liberty.

How is someone who is not godly going to restore a country to godliness? By their fruits you shall know them, an apple tree does not bear oranges. Trump is not godly and will not restore any godliness,don't kid yourself.
