Skip to comments.Report: Trump Upset That ‘People From S***hole’ Countries’ Immigrate To America
Posted on 01/11/2018 3:12:11 PM PST by Maceman
President Trump reportedly complained during a Thursday meeting with lawmakers about immigrants from shithole countries coming to America.
The Washington Post quoted Trump, based on a source who was in the meeting, saying:
Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here? The president was specifically referring to immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries and a proposal to restore protections to them.
The lawmakers in the meeting were Lindsey Graham and Dick Durbin. The Post notes:
Graham and Durbin thought they would be meeting with Trump alone and were surprised to find immigration hard-liners such as Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) and Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), at the meeting. The meeting was impromptu and came after phone calls this morning, Capitol Hill aides said. The administration is working on a bipartisan immigration deal which seeks to permanently implement DACA and establish robust border security. Protections for immigrants and the visa lottery will likely take a hit as part of the deal. The White House has indicated that a bipartisan deal has not been reached, but they are hopeful a deal will be brokered soon.
UPDATE: In a statement, the White House does not deny that the president said the above quote behind closed doors.

Pakistan, Somalia - yes Virginia, these are SHITHOLE countries.
Well. I agree with Trump. They are bad.
If the hole fits . . . .
I am not seeing the problem with this accurate statement.
Hey, he stole my line!
If true....geeesh. How many self inflected wounds can Trump give himself?
Probably more Fake News.
BUT I SURE HOPE IT’S NOT!!!
Yes! Because they either vote for a tin pot communist dictator or they are fleeing Islam & slavery!
well he’s right..you don’t hear people saying..gee I can’t wait to vacation in Haiti
WashPost quoting another anonymous source?
Why do I get the feeling this is another media smear job?
Highly doubt Trump would be that blunt, this sounds more like a liberal’s dream of what he WANTS Trump to say.
Or if it fits in the hole...
As is every single mussulman country, bar none.
As many as the sh!thole MSM can make up out of whole cloth.
Quoting someone who is "interpreting" what Trump says.
They’re quoting a WaPo reporter who quoted an unnamed attendee who made a comment.
Do we know it’s true?
Having been brought up in an “old school” Catholic house I don’t typically use words like that.However,I...very probably like DJT...have visited countries in Africa,Asia and South America that I’d call “cesspool countries”.
They are coming here because their countries are shitholes.
Trump says what everyone thinks (including most libs).
Brings attention to the problem.
