In January, President Trump frustrated with America’s continued responsibility for immigrants fleeing Third World natural disasters, asked members of Congress in vulgar terms why the United States had to shoulder such a burden.
‘Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?’ Trump said, according to two people who were briefed on the meeting and then leaked the comment to The Washington Post.
The comments caused outrage around the world, with the United Nations calling President Trump ‘racist’ and Nigeria calling the comments ‘deeply hurtful, offensive and unacceptable’.
Trump denied using the phrase at the time and later met Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari in Washington in April.
He said at their meeting that the two leaders didn’t discuss the comment ‘because the president knows me and he knows where I’m coming from.’
He then complimented the African country, calling Nigeria ‘beautiful’ and adding that he would like to visit.
