Trump rails against immigrants from ‘sh*thole’ Africa and Haiti in angry Oval Office rant: report

Published

on

In an Oval Office meeting, President Donald Trump blasted people coming into the United States from countries he doesn’t like.

“Why are we having all these people from sh*thole countries come here?” Trump said, according to The Washington Post. What Trump was referring to were people from African countries and Haiti. Instead, Trump wants to see more people from places like Norway.

The comments come just after the Norwegian Prime Minister came to the White House.

Lawmakers were reportedly stunned and taken aback. Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Dick Durbin (D-IL) were speaking with the president about cutting the visa lottery program by 50 percent with specific countries prioritized over the other.

The White House had no comment.

The news comes just weeks after a New York Times report revealed Trump said in a June meeting that people coming from Haiti “all have AIDS.” He continued saying that recent Nigerian immigrants would never “go back to their huts” in Africa and that Afghanistan is a terrorist haven.

“Certain Washington politicians chose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people,” the White House said in a statement. However, the statement did not detail how praising Norwegian immigrants is fighting for the American people.

“The President will only accept an immigration deal that adequately addresses the visa lottery system and chain migration — two programs that hurt our economy and allow terrorists into our country,” the statement continued. “Like other nations that have merit-based immigration, President Trump is fighting for permanent solutions that make our country stronger by welcoming those who can contribute to our society, grow our economy and assimilate into our great nation. He will always reject temporary, weak and dangerous 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.”
