"Good Americans" should start "a Twitter war" with President Donald Trump over his comment that the USA shouldn't admit people from Haiti and other "shithole countries", former Senate Democratic Leader Arthenia Joyner said Friday. But I can not believe in the history of the White House in that office, any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday.
Gov. -elect Phil Murphy said Friday he was "completely and utterly offended" by comments that President Donald Trump reportedly made questioning why the USA accepts immigrants from "shithole countries".
El Salvador on Friday slammed a comment attributed to US President Donald Trump reportedly calling it and other nations "shithole" countries and demanded an official US denial or clarification. "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!" the president tweeted.
Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., who was in the meeting, said Trump did in fact say those words and that he "said them repeatedly".

"Why do we want these people from all these sh*thole countries here?" he then allegedly said of African countries.
Trump's response Friday morning was particularly notable after White House spokesperson Raj Shah did not deny the "s*#&hole" remark on Thursday evening.
"Durbin added, "When the question was asked about Haitians. he said, 'Haitians?"
The Washington Post first reported Trump's vulgar remarks Thursday. "It took courage for what he did", Durbin said. Do we need more Haitians?' The largest is El Salvadoran, the second is Honduran and the third is Haitian and when I mentioned that fact to him he said "Haitians?" Never said 'take them out.' Made up by Dems.
