Default Trump denies making 's---hole' comments, says he's 'not a racist'

Last Sunday President Trump

Quote:
emphatically denied saying Haiti and other African countries were "s---hole countries,"
Two Senators present at the meeting verified Trump's assertion.

Quote:
the president pointed to two senators -- Tom Cotton and David Perdue, both Republicans, who were also present -- who maintained he hadn't slurred Haiti and Africa.

"Did you see what various senators in the room said about my comments?" he asked reporters. "They weren't made."

Trump denied being racist, too.

"No, no, I'm not a racist," he said. "I am the least racist person you have ever interviewed. That I can tell you."

It is illustrative of how biased the media has become that the unsupported claim of a partisan Trump hater is broadcast as fact.

Would it have been better? or worse? if he had called Haitians "Deplorable"?

I don't care if anybody, including Trump, thinks those places are shltholes, and says it publicly. I have a milllion to one that says not a single snowflake would like living there for any length of time.

I thought CGI made Haiti great again? Oh wait, no, it just made the Clintons richer, it actually made Haiti worse.

Its a big deal, because whether you realize it or not, its a racially insensitive remark. And certainly not something the POTUS should be saying. And unless you've been somewhere, its a bit ignorant to call it a ****hole. Have you been to Haiti or anywhere in Africa?


What do you base your remarks on?

I don't see how you read racism into this. Just because it is predominantly black, doesn't mean it is a shlt hole, being a shlt hole makes it a shlt hole.

This actually makes you the racist, since you are the one that thinks ONLY black people live in shlt holes. I used to live in one.......

Several parts of Africa, and yes, most of those places are S**tholes. Been to Haiti. To call it a s**thole, is an insult to countries that have managed to obtain s**thole status.

I've been to Africa--Kenya. Not what I call a shlthole. Haiti is a shlthole. It is next door to the Dominican Republic. Why are Haiti's resourced depleted, compared to its neighbor? Calling a certain country a shlthole has nothing to do with racism. Only sissies, snowflakes, and milquetoast P-C people milk the race card for anything they can. The POTUS can say whatever the heck he wants, as long as it's true. And he had better do his Constitutional duties also.
