An attendee proposed restoring protections to citizens of Haiti, El Salvador and African nations, after which the president "grew frustrated" and responded, "Why are we having all these people from sh-thole countries come here?" "I can't understand how someone goes from making a statement in Little Haiti saying "I want to be the biggest champion of Haiti" to calling Haiti a 's***hole.' It makes me sick".

The person said the language was salty on both sides.

The internet is in strong knee-jerk reaction mode to comments that, as of right now, President Donald Trump only allegedly said. "This behavior is unacceptable from the leader of our nation", said Rep. Mia Love (R-Utah), whose parents came to America from Haiti.
