Even though the White House did not deny that Donald Trump called African nations and Haiti ‘shithole countries’ and sources confirmed that he did, and Senators in the room have not disputed the exchange, the former reality show star is denying that he said that.
“The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used,” he tweeted. “What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made – a big setback for DACA!”

Twitter users dragged Trump to school.
The Haitians fought for the U.S. in the Revolutionary War.

Even Trump Alt-right supporters aren’t defending their president. Instead, they’re trying to justify his appalling choice of words.
You were just being honest. Maybe the governments of these countries should stop letting their countries be shitholes.

You just admitted, then denied, then changed the subject on something in one tweet. It’s amazing.

In response to President Shithole’s remarks, White House spokesperson Raj Shah did not deny it. In fact, it’s almost as if Shah confirmed that the exchange took place.
“Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people,” White House spokesperson Shah said.
Republicans and Democrats are condemning Trump’s remarks. House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell have both remained silent, though. No one should be shocked that Trump made those remarks because he has used racially charged language for years. Conservatives overlooked this glaring flaw and voted him into office.
