'I Have a Wonderful Relationship With Haitians' Trump Insists
President Donald Trump is in the middle of one of the worst self-inflicted crises of his presidency. By calling Haiti and African nations "shithole countries" the president has enraged not only Americans, but people around the world.Â
Fifteen hours after the news of his racist remarks broke, Trump denied he used the termÂ "shithole countries," but admitted he used "tough" language. The Washington Post, NBC News, CNN, and The Associated Press all independently verified he did make those remarks. Trump reportedly also said of Haitians in America, "take them out."
Now, Trump is trying to walk back his remarks even more. He says he didn't include Haiti among the "shithole countries."
Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country. Never said â€œtake them out.â€ Made up by Dems. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians. Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!â€” Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 12, 2018
No Republican who was in the room has denied any reporting on the meeting.
