The POTUS can say whatever the heck he wants, as long as it's true. And he had better do his Constitutional duties also.

You do realize, that other people have different experiences than you right? I mean, can you seriously not even internalize why people might think that Trump was being racist with this remark? You may disagree that its insensitive, but are you really unable to empathize with your fellow Americans about things to the point that if they get offended by something it makes them snowflakes? Just take a step a step back and put that statement together with everything racially insensitive about Trump, his past and the things he's said and done his first year in office.

Do you really not see how people can come to the conclusion that Trump made a racist remark? You don't have to agree, just understand.

I'm not really educated on what is wrong with Haiti, so I'm not going to be able to answer that question.

What were you doing in Kenya, if you don't mind me asking.

What experiences do you think Trump was basing his comment on? He does hire Haitian's on the H-2B Visas at the Mar-A-Lago so he doesn't have to pay Americans.

Perhaps the White House could release the tapes of the conversation so we can see the full context.

I was sightseeing in Kenya in my younger days, so I don't know what it looks like now. I think people are getting too eager and ready to follow any crowd mentality that jibes with their own at the time. I cannot fathom the need for people to bring up race whenever the poverty of a country is brought up. I thought we all belonged to the human race.

Was this before or after he called up his rich buddies bragging about saying it?

Conservative writer: Trump called friends to brag about 's---hole countries' remark | TheHill
A guy who claims to know a guy who claims Trump bragged to other guys about saying it. That's the big proof.

A third hand rumor verses 2 US Senators who said it didn't happen, it speaks volumes about the blind hatred towards Trump that the rumor mongering is accepted without question.

Since Trump diddn't make the comment, what are you basing your idiotic insistence on?

But the MSM said he said it, and they only lie most of the time, and this time it is a negative about Trump, so it must be true.

Senators Cotton and Purdue say he didn't use that language. The Secretary of Homeland Security says she didn't hear him use that language. Stop calling other people liars just because you want something to be true.

Democrats don't want to see Trump have any success with immigration reform or securing the border. What better way to block it than to fabricate a controversy? It is textbook Resistance tactics at work, no interest in governance just attack Trump.
