In an all new low even for him, President Donald Trump called Haiti, El Salvador and African nations, “shithole countries” and wondered out loud why the United States would want immigrants from those nations. The vulgar statement was made in the oval office during a meeting with senators about immigration.
It did not take long for politicians, pundits, and celebrities to offer pointed responses to the president’s boorish words.

Don Lemon calls Trump racist here & then amazingly through silence, tells people who still support him to go f*ck themselves. This is an inspiring watch. Kudos to Don for stepping up.#RacistTrump @donlemon https://t.co/OVAV8v449F

Shut the hell up you bitch ass nigga. You will continue to run this country further into the ground and risk lives every time you breathe. You’re not the president. Just a dumpster full of hate. FOH. Sick to my stomach that literal shit currently represents America to the world. https://t.co/qoNWllmZIm
