- Trump Denies “Shithole” Comment: “Never Said Anything Derogatory About Haitians”

After reports that Trump referred to “shithole” African nations in a meeting (that was not denied by The White House), the president has tweeted this morning that “this was not the language used.”
He then following up by claiming he “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!”
His tweet, denying the “shithole” comment follows an earlier series of tweets that slammed the proposed DACA proposal, and sought to explain his thinking about a bipartisan immigration plan that was presented on Thursday which would allow too many people in from “high crime” countries. He said that’s one of the key reasons why a bipartisan plan presented on Thursday is a nonstarter.
