Trump's 'shithole' remark no shock to Haitians

The White House did not deny Trump's "shithole" comments in describing countries where the majority of residents are persons of color. It's disturbing that Trump so easily denies saying something that a roomful of people very likely heard. "Never said 'take them out.' Made up by Dems".

Members of Central Florida's Haitian community on Friday criticized reports that President Donald Trump used a vulgar remark to describe the country on the eve of the anniversary of the 2010 quake, one of the deadliest disasters in modern history.

Additional reports also suggest Trump made the racist remarks and tried to limit the damage.

Republican Sen. Tim Scott of SC said he was told by Sen. "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians!" he posted.

Rev. Sara Smith of the United Congregational Church in Bridgeport says President Trump's words go against everything she preaches to her very diverse church group. "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!" The remarks sent shock waves through the 4 people left in the country who didn't realize Donald Trump is a fucking racist.

He later added, "I thought he misspoke, and, as I said, I think President Trump is not a racist, but I do think he is racially uninformed".

Reacting to the comment in a tweet posted at 6:56 p.m. Mr Mahama expressed shock over the USA president's action and charged the African Union (AU) to condemn same. "Haitians should not be seen as a bunch of immigrants who come to the United States to exploit USA resources".

Trump's comments came as two senators presented details of a bipartisan compromise that would extend protections against deportation for hundreds of thousands of young immigrants - and also strengthen border protections, as Trump has insisted.

U.S. Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick of Bucks County described the president's language as "unacceptable".

On Thursday, President Trump referred to all 54 African countries as "shitholes," derided Haitian and El Salvadoran immigrants, and opined that we should prioritize people from Norway. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said that "the president's expressed desire to see more immigrants from countries like Norway must be called out for what it is: an effort to set this country back generations by promoting a homogeneous, white society".

U.S. President Donald Trump and Pope Francis meet at the Vatican, May 24, 2017.

"Let's have a Twitter war", said Joyner, a Tampa attorney, referring to the president's fondness for the social media service.

Trump has since denied that he made the remarks.
