President Trump’s Comments!  In a meeting yesterday with lawmakers, President Trump was accused of calling Haiti, El Salvador and some African countries “****hole countries.” Today, President Trump denied those accusations and said that “Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country.” Senator Dick Durbin was present at the meeting and was adamant that Trump said those incendiary words.
