Trump uses slur to describe immigrants from Haiti, Africa

President Donald Trump reportedly lashed out in a meeting with lawmakers about immigration reform, demanding to know why the U.S should accept citizens from what he called ‘shithole’ countries.

Trump sat down with senators and congressmen at the White House to discuss a proposed bipartisan deal that would limit immigrants from bringing family members into the country and restrict the green card visa lottery in exchange for shielding hundreds of thousands of young immigrants from deportation.

“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” Trump said, according to people briefed on the meeting who spoke with ‘The Washington Post’.

The ‘New York Times’ later reported the same comment, citing unnamed people with direct knowledge of the meeting.

The president was referring to African countries and Haiti, and then suggested the United States should welcome immigrants from places like Norway, whose prime minister met with Trump on Wednesday.
