Not really racist, the countries are generally shitholes, just like most third world countries. He's just pointing out the facts.

Trump is the inside voice of the majority of how Americans think. Why do you think he was elected.

L W · January 17, 2018 at 5:15 am

Nobody moves to Haiti. It is a country that still practices voodoo and human sacrifice.

Jordan Raymaley · January 17, 2018 at 5:15 am

Trump is a Walrus Clacker

Jacob Hawkins · January 17, 2018 at 5:15 am

This is sad, sad that the United States is becoming the exact opposite of what it was supposed to be. America was a safe haven and the key to a new life to new people from all over the world which was the American dream. Instead we have people trying to deny that and make it a country where others are not welcome. Its sickening people are trying make this place less welcoming and hopeful.

Jacob Burroughs · January 17, 2018 at 5:15 am

What's the problem with what Trump said? There's a reason they all immigrate to America. Answer? THEY'RE SHITHOLES AND THAT'S A FACT!! U GO TRUMP. KEEP SPEAKING THE TRUTH

Bridgit Wanjiku · January 17, 2018 at 5:15 am

John Buxton · January 17, 2018 at 5:15 am

ZFlyingVLover · January 17, 2018 at 5:15 am

has anyone considered that the exact terminology probably wasn't shithole? Where's the coverage of him saying this? I'd bet that if they had it THEN they'd be playing it over and over and over again.

More fakenews b.s.
