Trump: ‘Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?’

President Donald Trump reportedly questioned in a White House meeting on Thursday why the United States should accept immigrants from “s***hole countries,” referring to Haiti, El Salvador, and African countries.

“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” Trump said, according to The Washington Post, which cited two sources briefed on the meeting. Other reportsquicklyconfirmed that he described the countries with the expletive.

He then reportedly suggested that the US instead accept immigrants from nations like Norway, whose prime minister he met with on Wednesday. 

The comments came amid negotiations with a bipartisan group of senators seeking to resolve the fate of young unauthorized immigrants whose protections under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program are being phased out by the Trump administration.

The senators had suggested that the diversity visa lottery program, which hands out roughly 50,000 visas annually, be partially reallocated to immigrants already living in the US whose protections under a humanitarian program are being terminated.

The Trump administration has also ended TPS for 45,000 Haitians and 2,500 Nicaraguans. The program also covers immigrants from Honduras, Somalia, Sudan, South Sudan, Syria, and Yemen.
