Trump Bragged About ‘Sh*thole’ Comment: Report
Conservative blogged Erick Erickson claimed that President Donald Trump called some friends about calling Haiti, El Salvador and African nations “sh*thole countries” during a White House meeting about immigration on Jan. 11.
The Washington Post noted that Trump stated: ““Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?”
Trump has claimed he did not use those words, however, Erickson tweeted:
It’s weird that people in the room don’t remember Trump using that word when Trump himself was calling friends to brag about it afterwards. I spoke to one of those friends. The President thought it would play well with the base.
