Trump used the words "shithole countries" to describe Haiti, El Salvador and African countries in response to lawmakers suggested they restore protections for immigrants from there, the Washington Post reported Thursday.

A mountain of evidence in support of this proposition existed long before we learned of his comments on Thursday that African countries and Haiti are "shitholes", and that the United States should be welcoming immigrants from places "like Norway" instead.

At an event on Friday, Trump was honoring the memory of Martin Luther King Jr, the civil rights era activist who was slain in 1968. Day, according to The Daily Beast.

"Yesterday Senator Durbin and I met with President Trump at the White House to discuss our bipartisan proposal on border security and immigration". Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, who was in the meeting, said the reports were correct.

But the White House later rejected it, plunging the issue back into uncertainty just eight days before a deadline that threatens a government shutdown. "Do we need more Haitians?'" "Like other nations that have merit-based immigration, President Trump is fighting for permanent solutions that make our country stronger by welcoming those who can contribute to our society, grow our economy and assimilate into our great nation". "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!" I want to stop the massive inflow of drugs.
