In his latest terribleness, he reportedly asked lawmakers "Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?" in reference to El Salvador, Haiti and African countries, and insisted the U.S. should bring in more people from places like Norway. This comes after Trump reportedly said that all Haitian immigrants "have AIDS" and announced plans to revoke Temporary Protected Status from nearly 200,000 Salvadorans who have been living in the United States for decades. Dozens of 7-Eleven locations were recently targeted by U.S. immigration officials as well.
After the news of Trump's alleged statements, Maryland's state representative Elijah E. Cummings voiced his strong disapproval of Trump.
"I condemn this unforgivable statement and this demeaning of the office of the Presidency," read his tweet. "I will always fight for the vulnerable among us and against bigotry in all its forms."
Trump's press secretary Raj Shah released a statement to CBS News to say that Trump cares about the American people above everyone else (and, noticeably, not to deny the "shithole" comment). "Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people," read the statement. "He will always reject temporary, weak and dangerous stopgap measures that threaten the lives of hardworking Americans, and undercut immigrants who seek a better life in the United States through a legal pathway."
One thing is for sure—#Oprah2020 can't come any sooner.
