“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here” is allegedly what President Trump asked why having a meeting concerning DACA Thursday. Allegedly, referring to people from locations such as Haiti and the continent of Africa. Social media lit up in a firestorm accusing President Trump as racist.
Trump took to Twitter Friday morning to address and deny the accusation:
Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country. Never said “take them out.” Made up by Dems. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians. Probably should record future meetings – unfortunately, no trust!
