And beyond this Trump stuff is the fact that Congress still can't get it together enough to do something about DACA. I suspect Durbin's and the Dem's inability to compromise on this issue got DT riled up. But I still want to know exactly what was said and the context before calling him racist.
“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” Trump said, according to these people, referring to countries mentioned by the lawmakers.
Trump then suggested that the United States should instead bring more people from countries such as Norway, whose prime minister he met with Wednesday. The president, according to a White House official, also suggested he would be open to more immigrants from Asian countries because he felt that they help the United States economically.
In addition, the president singled out Haiti, telling lawmakers that immigrants from that country must be left out of any deal, these people said.
“Why do we need more Haitians?” Trump said, according to people familiar with the meeting. “Take them out.”
Of course, he's denying it this morning, but since every other word that comes out of his mouth is a lie or contrary to the thing that came out of his mouth right before it, I'm not inclined to believe him.
