Haiti Summons U.S. Official Over Trump's 'Sh*thole' Comments

Source: The Daily Beast



Haiti’s ambassador to the United States has reportedly summoned a U.S. official to explain President Trump’s reported comments condemning the country as a “shithole.” Trump reportedly made the remarks to lawmakers on Thursday, questioning why a bipartisan immigration bill offers protections to immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador, and African nations—all of which he is said to have called “shithole countries.” Journalist Yamiche Alcindor said on MSNBC late Thursday that Paul Altidor, Haiti’s ambassador, told her the Haitian government was taking formal steps to make its outrage over the comments known. “Haitians fought along U.S. soldiers in the revolutionary war and we continue to be great contributors to American society,” Alcindor quoted Altidor as saying. Altidor also said he believes Trump’s disparaging comments are “based on stereotypes.” “Either the president has been misinformed or he is miseducated,” he said.

1. "Either the president has been misinformed or he is miseducated"

Both.

NONE of his family - from both paternal and maternal sides - was here in the U.S. until AFTER the Civil War.

3. I once thought that the orange asshole would launch a nuclear war because he was crazy...

now I think he will launch a nuclear war because he tripped on a carpet stumbling across the room and grabbing the "button" to catch himself from face-planting.

this man is the embodiment of tweedle dee and tweedle dum.
