Despite Ordering 60,000 Haitians Out Of The U.S. By 2019, Trump Denies “Shithole” Comment And Claims To Have “Wonderful Relationship”

President Trump continues to deny making his “shithole” comment during a bi-partisan meeting last Thursday aimed at discussing the fate of DACA, despite a variety of first hand accounts from Democrats and Republicans in the room who all heard him make inflammatory remarks about immigrants from El Salvador, Haiti, and African countries.

The Washington Post first broke the story about President Trump growing frustrated on Thursday with the other politicians in the room who were discussing the protection of immigrants from El Salvador, Haiti, and African countries under DACA, Deferred Action For Childhood Arrivals, that impacts an estimated 800,000 children of parents who entered the U.S. illegally.

Citing the people in the room who heard the remark, President Trump responded by asking, “Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?”

President Trump mentioned the United States should bring in more immigrants from countries like Norway and then suggested that he would be more open to accepting immigrants from Asian countries because they would help out the United States economically.

After questioning why the United States needs more Haitians, President Trump replied, “Take them out.”

President Trump tweeted the following day on Friday that he never said to take out Haitians.

“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 meeting-unfortunately, no trust!”

Although President Trump claimed on Twitter to have a “wonderful relationship” with Haitians, he neglected to mention that in November his administration ended deportation protection to approximately 60,000 Haitians following their January 12, 2010 deadly earthquake and ordered them to return home to Haiti by July 2019.

His claims about having a “wonderful relationship with Haitians” on Twitter simply don’t match his political actions taken as President.

More Denials

On Friday President Trump tweeted the language used by him at the DACA meeting on Thursday was tough but “not the language used.”

He added in his tweet, “What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made- a big setback for DACA.”
