WaPo: Trump Rips Protections for Those From 'Sh**hole Countries'

This Could Be The Best WaPo Alert About Trump

According to the aide, when the group came to discussing immigration from Africa, Trump asked why America would want immigrants from "all these shithole countries" and that the USA should have more people coming in from places like Norway.

People in that meeting say the president used an expletive to describe Haiti and nations in Africa.

Outlets famous for censoring profanity chose to print his description of certain countries where immigrants come to the USA as a "shithole".

The president then suggested that the US try to increase immigration from countries like Norway, whose prime minister he met with this week.

This report contains explicit subject matter.

Love said she doesn't want Trump's comments to detract from work on immigration policy.

"Perhaps the White House feels the president's remarks will be well-received in some parts of this country, among some parts of the president's base, and perhaps that is true but it doesn't make what he said any less ignorant or any less racist".

Sens. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) and Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.) had proposed cutting the visa lottery program by 50 percent and then prioritizing countries already in the system, a White House official said.

Some of the politicians had advocated restoring protections for immigrants from El Salvador, Haiti, and African countries, according to the Post, when Trump made the remark. "He will always reject temporary, weak and risky stopgap measures that threaten the lives of hardworking Americans, and undercut immigrants who seek a better life in the United States through a legal pathway".

Some characterized the statement as a "non-denial denial" of the story.

Trump had seemed amenable to a deal earlier in Thursday, aides said told the Post - but did not seem interested in the Oval Office talks.

The council's spokesman Rupert Colville said Trump's comments were "shocking and shameful", according to the Associated Press. Durbin threw out a few examples, including Haiti, and the president asked why the US would want all those people from Haiti.

Elijah Cummings, a Maryland Democratic lawmaker, tweeted: "I condemn this unforgivable statement and this demeaning of the office of the Presidency".

"Dignity that many in this White House could learn from".

"He's demonstrated himself to be unfit, unknowledgeable about the history of this country and the history of contributions that immigrants, particularly Haitian immigrants, have made to this country", the Chicago Democrat added. Tom Cotton, R-Ark; and Rep. Robert W. Goodlatte, R-Va., the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, were also there.
