Trump uses derogatory, racist language to describe immigrants

White House Denies Trump Made Racist Statements Against Haitians And Nigerians

The White House has furiously denied a New York Times report which claims President Trump said "everyone" from Haiti has AIDS during a June meeting on immigration.

The White House did not deny the subject of the meeting, but strongly denied that Trump ever used the words "AIDS" or "huts" to describe immigrants entering the U.S.

"Late to his own meeting and waving a sheet of numbers, President Trump stormed into the Oval Office one day in June, plainly enraged", the report begins.

The Times report said Kelly and Tillerson attempted to react by saying a large number of the visas were for here and now voyagers, yet that as Trump proceeded with, Kelly and Miller "turned their rage" against Tillerson, who tossed his arms up and countered that maybe he should quit issuing visas inside and out.

More than 2,500 were from Afghanistan, a terrorist haven, the president complained.

Mr. Trump had pushed controversial immigration policies since becoming American president in January.

Once they fully satisfied with the UI of this service, they can go ahead and subscribe the appropriate plan. After this, the service was rolled out to a few more markets like the U.K., Germany, Austria, and Japan.

On Saturday, the White House denied the allegations and condemned the Times for printing "lies".

According the sources, when Trump learned 15,000 people from Haiti had been granted USA visas, he remarked: "They all have AIDS".

The Times cited six officials who attended or knew about the meeting, and who discussed the president's behavior with the publication. The New York Times attributes the quote to an anonymous source and another unnamed person told of the comment by someone else at the meeting.

Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, in a statement made after the story published, said that Chief of Staff John Kelly, National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, and Homeland Security Secretary Kirsten Nielsen "and all other senior staff actually in the meeting deny these outrageous claims, "according to CNN".

Another 40,000 had come in from Nigeria, Trump reportedly said, but once they'd seen the United States they would not "go back to their huts" in Africa, the two officials said.

Trump won the 2016 election while promoting his long-promised wall along the southern border of the United States, a ban on Muslim immigrants and putting America first.
