President Trump on Friday addressed reports that he referred to some immigrants as coming from “shithole countries," tweeting to his followers that it wasn't the language he used.




The tweet appeared to reference the heated Oval Office meeting in which he reportedly made the comment that Haiti, El Salvador and several African countries were "shithole countries."

“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” Trump said, according to The Washington Post, which first reported his comments on Thursday.

Trump did not specify in his tweet Friday morning which language he did use, but only said it was "tough."

UPDATE:

‘Fox & Friends’ host called for Trump to clarify ‘s---hole' comment shortly before denial


BY JACQUELINE THOMSEN - 01/12/18 08:59 AM EST

A “Fox & Friends” host called on President Trump to walk back his comments calling Haiti, El Salvador and African nations “shithole countries” shortly before Trump did so in a tweet Friday morning.

It may be just the latest example of a link between Fox News reports and presidential tweets.

The sequence on Thursday followed a similar pattern with Trump tweets.

During the “Fox & Friends” opening segment just before 6 a.m., host Brian Kilmeade said Trump needed to “clarify" his comments "right away, before noon, so he can move forward on substantive talks to help the country.” Kilmeade's comments were noted by Matt Gertz of Media Matters.

1. At this point we should start a pool on when he uses the N word in a meeting or to reporters.

He is so vile it's only a matter of time.

5. I would bet all the money that I have

and all the money I will make for the rest of my life that...

he already HAS used that word in the White House.

We will never hear about it because there wasn't someone with honor and courage in that conversation.

11. Beat me to it.

It took the Nixon tapes to reveal the anti-semitism replete in Nixon's babbling -- and, as a bonus, the tapes also caught the sainted Reverend Billy Graham denouncing America's Jews as threatening the liberties which bigoted racist s.o.b.'s like him and his son hold dear.

I bet he’ll be sloppy enough to use it in front of someone who will report it.
It is honestly what he thinks, and he just loves to run his mouth.

3. Yes, I heard there was a correction

and that he really said "shithouse." Is that what he's talking about? Oh, Donald. Time to pack up your toys and go home, don't you think?

4. So the WH was cool with it last night

And now that there’s blowback “Oh I didn’t say that!” Also, how much more of a setback could DACA get from this racist asshole that ended the program.

7. Sure I believe him because ..."I am the least racist person that you have ever met," Trump 9/15/'16

....

"I am the least racist person that you have ever met," Trump 9/15/'16


"I am the least racist person that you have ever met," Trump told the pastor in the interview taped earlier this month and aired on the Impact Network.

18. Yes, I think you're right

He isn't denying the sentiment of what he said, just the swear words, like a kid denying he was cussing on the playground.

Meanwhile, maybe he has no idea what he said, though I'm sure he did.

Too late shithead. You waited until you were on the toilet to deny it. It’s gone through the entire cycle and you’re way too late to erase the truth.

15. Racists think the word is the problem & don't see the racism in the comparison btw Normay and Haiti.


Trump was definitely talking about the PEOPLE of Norway versus the PEOPLE of Haiti.
