The President waded into racist waters during an immigration meeting in the Oval office earlier today.
Frustrated with his losing battle to liberate the country from anyone that is not white, Trump allegedly vented about his need to reduce protections for immigrants from “sh/thole countries”.
Trump’s remark allegedly was pointed at the continent of Africa, Hati, and El Salvador, and the blowback to his commentary has been more pronounced than the other numerous incidents of bigotry that the President has been associated with.
To make matters worse, the White House put out a statement, that in no way addressed the President’s closed door remarks, nor did the release offer anything in the way of an apology.
This White House is totally fine with a circumstance as ugly as this being attributed to the President of the United States.
“Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people. The President will only accept an immigration deal that adequately addresses the visa lottery system and chain migration – two programs that hurt our economy and allow terrorists into our country. Like other nations that have merit-based immigration,

President Trump is fighting for permanent solutions that make our country stronger by welcoming those who can contribute to our society, grow our economy and assimilate into our great nation.
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.”
The White House failed the American people with this statement, Americans were seeking a sincere explanation, even a denial would have been more acceptable than this.
No, the White House just rubber stamped overt racism, and encouraged other Americans with the same views to engage in similar behavior.
The President clearly is playing to his base, but the cost will out weigh the benefit.
In closing, the President seems to have a serious problem with human beings of African descent, his commentary several weeks ago regarding Hatians, and certain west African countries was cut from the same cloth as these comments, so there is no denying the President views Africa in the ugliest of terms, and will continue to justify his radical policies firmly on the basis of racism.
African Americans, Africans, does not matter, Trump simply is not a big fan of black people.
