Trump Said Haitians Have AIDS, Nigerians Live In Huts in Oval Office Meeting, New York Times Reports
They "all have AIDS", Trump reportedly said, referring to 15,000 Haitians that had obtained visas.
The month before, when a man who killed eight people in Manhattan was revealed to be originally from Uzbekistan, Trump bemoaned the air of complacency around immigration reform, calling current laws "a joke", the Times reports.
When it came to Nigerian immigrants, Trump complained that they would never "go back to their huts" in Africa after setting foot in the U.S.
As the meeting continued, John F. Kelly, then the secretary of homeland security, and Rex W. Tillerson, the secretary of state, tried to interject, explaining that many were short-term travelers making one-time visits.
Enraged by the number of people receiving visas to enter the United States, President Trump made disparaging remarks about Haitian and Nigerian immigrants during an Oval Office meeting earlier this year, according to a report published Saturday by the New York Times.
The June meeting, which officials said began with Trump expressing his frustration over the number of foreigners who had come to the United States since his travel ban in January, highlights the president's obsession with immigration as the primary cause of numerous United States' problems. The president, six officials who attended or were briefed about the meeting told The Times, had a document listing how many immigrants had received visas to enter the U.S.in 2017.
The White House unequivocally pushed back on a report that President Donald Trump talked about workers in a pretentious and belittling design amid a June meeting with top organization authorities.
Tempers flared and Mr. Kelly asked that the room be cleared of staff members.
"These comments are beneath the office of the President".
"This is bullshit", Trump said, according to the Times. The New York Times attributes the quote to an anonymous source and another unnamed person told of the comment by someone else at the meeting.
"General Kelly, General McMaster, Secretary Tillerson, Secretary Nielsen and all other senior staff actually in the meeting deny these outrageous claims", press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders claimed in a Saturday statement.
Four others who were there said they did not remember Trump using that language.
