Comments suggest immigrants from some countries undesirable
WASHINGTON — According to the ‘Washington Post,’ President Donald Trump allegedly used what some are calling vulgar terms when rejecting a pitch Jan. 11 from a bipartisan team of senators on an immigration deal to protect DACA or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals participants.
“Why are we having all these people from ****hole countries coming here?” Trump allegedly said during the meeting in the Oval Office.
Mvskoke Media has chosen to redact some of the statement because of the use of obscenities.
The ‘Washington Post’ later reported that U.S. Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin said Trump, “said things that were hate-filled, vile and racist.”
The outlet reported that Trump singled out Haiti.
“Why do we need more Haitians?” Trump said according to people that were in the meeting. “Take them out.”
The articles also stated Trump suggested that the U.S. should bring more people from countries such as Norway. He met with the Norway prime minister Jan. 10.
According to a White House official, Trump said he would be open to more immigrants from Asian countries because he felt that they help the U.S. economically.
On Twitter, Trump stated he did not say derogatory things about Haitians and that he should record future meetings. He also denied he used derogatory language about immigrants.
“The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used,” Trump said on his Twitter account.
Mvskoke Media was unable to find a statement regarding the issue at: www.whitehouse.gov as of press time.
