Pierre Labossiere was aghast when, during immigration discussions in the Oval Office Thursday, President Donald Trump questioned why the US should admit immigrants from Haiti and Africa, calling them "shithole countries".
He also said that the Democrats "made up" the story, claiming that he referred to Haiti as a "sh*thole country", emphasizing that he had never said "anything derogatory about Haitians".
"We want changes to chain migration, and not to a very small percentage of the population and how it affects chain migration", said Marc Short, the White House legislative affairs director. "I have not read one of them that's inaccurate". Mr Trump said after being presented with a proposal to restore protections for immigrants from the countries in question.
"When Trump uttered his vulgar attacks yesterday against Haitians and Africans, he exposed the white supremacy at the core of US policy towards Haiti", the statement said.

"This is very much a vile and disgusting comment coming from the president of the United States", he added. Republican leaders have said an immigration bill must include other Republican goals, like funding for increased border security.
"I just don't have to agree with it", Nakpodia said. The world is witnessing a new low today with this #S-tholeNations remark! totally unacceptable! uncalled for moreover it shows a lack a respect and IGNORANCE never seen before in the recent history of the USA by any President!
