The left is up to their usual shenanigans, referring to President Donald Trump as racist for reportedly calling Haiti and African nations ‘s***hole countries.’
The State Dept. has issued a Level 3 travel warning to Haiti on January 10, 2018.
In other words, Trump was proven right once again.
More on Trump’s comment, per BBC:
US President Donald Trump has denied using crude words attributed to him about Haiti, El Salvador and African countries.
Reports that he had called them “shithole countries” in an Oval Office meeting generated a backlash worldwide.
But Mr Trump has tweeted that “this was not the language” he used in a meeting about immigration.
However Democratic Senator Dick Durban said he heard Mr Trump use “vile, racist” language.
The Washington Post, the New York Times, Politico and the Wall Street Journal all reported the comments on Thursday, quoting witnesses or people briefed on the meeting. The White House did not deny them.
While denying the specific comments on Friday, Mr Trump admitted to using “tough” language.
Haiti has now formally summoned a U.S. official to come before their government and explain Trump’s remarks.
From The Week:
Paul Altidor, Haiti’s ambassador to the United States, told NBC News on Thursday night that he and the Haitian government “vehemently condemn” President Trump’s comments on Haiti and other countries being “shitholes.” Altidor said Trump’s remarks were “based on stereotypes,” and “either the president has been misinformed or he is miseducated.” The Haitian government has formally summoned a U.S. official to explain the comments, Altidor said, and Haiti’s embassy in Washington, D.C., has heard from outraged Haitian-Americans demanding Trump apologize for what he said. “Haitians fought along U.S. soldiers in the Revolutionary War and we continue to be great contributors to American society,” Altidor said.
CNN’s Don Lemon blasted Trump as a racist, while also going after Trump supporters.
From The Hill:
CNN host Don Lemon began his show Thursday night by labeling President Trump as “racist” in the wake of reports that the president called Haiti and African nations “shithole countries.”
“The president of the United States is racist,” Lemon said at the opening of his show. “A lot of us already knew that.”
Lemon was responding to reports from The Washington Post and other media outlets that Trump referred to immigrants from Haiti and African countries as coming from “shithole countries.”
Entertainment Weekly has more:
Lemon’s condemnation of the president and his supporters weren’t the only instances of pointed words being used on the program Thursday night. One of Lemon’s guests via remote, Republican strategist and frequent Trump critic Rick Wilson, clashed with fellow guest John Fredericks, a conservative talk show host and fervent Trump supporter, over Trump’s “sh–hole” remark. At one point Wilson said, “John, I will gut you like a fish on this show if you want to keep this up.”
