President Trump is coming under heavy criticism for his comment about immigrants coming to the U.S. from “shithole countries” during a DACA meeting yesterday.
The divisive language used by President Trump reveals a U.S. president who is deeply out of touch with minorities in the U.S. and maintains an elitist and racist mentality over immigration policy.
Taken together with President Trump’s divisive “many sides” comment regarding the Charlottesville marches over the removal of a Confederate statue and his bigoted comment about Mexico “sending people to the U.S. who have problems, sending their drugs, crime, and rapists” has made it clear to the public that he holds a racist mindset over immigration policy and race which comes as he advocates with his fellow Republicans to build a new expensive border wall across the U.S.-Mexico.
Republican Rep. Mia Love of Utah, a Haitian American, responded to President Trump’s divisive comment by saying in a statement on Twitter that it was “unkind, divisive, elitist, and fly in the face of our nation’s values.”
Rep. Love added in her tweet that President Trump’s behavior is unacceptable and demanded an apology.

President Trump doesn’t appear to be even close to apologizing for his divisive and racist language that he used yesterday about immigrants coming to the U.S. from “shithole countries”
Earlier this morning on Twitter, President Trump maintained that the language used by him during the DACA meeting yesterday was “tough” but not the language used.
He later criticized the “outlandish proposal” made during the DACA meeting which he described as a big setback for DACA!
The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used. What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made – a big setback for DACA!
