Bay Area Haitians disgusted by president's 'shithole' comments

Trump criticised immigration to his country from El Salvador, Haiti and the African continent, by calling the group "shithole countries" at a meeting with Congress members at the White House on Thursday, according to USA media.

Trump reportedly demanded to know why the U.S. should accept immigrants from "sh**hole countries", after lawmakers raised the issue of protections for immigrants from African nations, Haiti and El Salvador.

In another Twitter post, the president wrote that he "never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very troubled and poor country". Near the end of a year ago, the White House denied that Trump said Haitians had aids and that Nigerians would never "go back to their huts" in Africa during another immigration briefing. Of course, the president denies using the word, only owning up to using "tough language" during the immigration talks.

He also took issue with Trumps reported suggestion that the United States should welcome immigrants from places like Norway, whose population is overwhelmingly white, instead of from African countries and Haiti.
