President Donald Trump was quoted during an Oval Office rant about people coming into the United States from “sh*thole countries” during a meeting Thursday. The reference was to those from Haiti and African countries.
The internet was quick to light up with anger and disgust at the president calling him everything from “unfit” to “racist.”

My grandfathers family came from shithole Siberia to keep him from being drafted into the czar's army for life for being Jewish.

Someone that “harbors racist feelings about people of color” = a racist
Therefore, Donald Trump is a racist https://t.co/iNWKx2ua5u

Another first for Trump: As far as I can tell, using the WaPo's 1877-2017 archive search function, today's report quoting the President is the first time that paper has published the word "shithole". pic.twitter.com/jdvse7f93r

You can keep telling me that this man and support of him isn't rooted in racial hostility. I'll just keep reading what he says and watching you still support him. https://t.co/B0g0TuCPB1

people think white nationalism is some loaded, hyperbolic term, but the “shithole” thing is literal, textbook white nationalism

Maybe it's just me, but I never thought of America as a "shithole" country until that asshole and his Russian bosses stole the election.

Decrying immigrants from Haiti and Africa and other places as "shithole countries," Trump said he would prefer more immigrants from places like Norway. https://t.co/KvsslFrzZ5

Before anyone disputes his use of words like "shithole", let me remind you of what he said and did about Aberdeen residents who wouldn't sell him their land: pic.twitter.com/6eBqYhzfTC
