Haitians march across Brooklyn Bridge to Trump Tower protesting the President's racist comments

Hundreds of Haitians marched from the Brooklyn Bridge to Trump Tower Friday in protest of the President’s derogatory comments about their homeland.

Waving Haitian flags and dancing to the beat of drums and horns, the number of demonstrators multiplied as they streamed into Midtown.

“We have a President in power who knows no history and seems to have no education, who just disrespects any and everybody in the world,” said Marie Timothee, 28, a social worker born in Haiti and raised in Brooklyn.

The protesters took to the streets eight days after President Trump was reported to have described Haiti and African nations as “shithole countries.”
