MiamiHerald / President Donald Trump woke up to a s—storm Friday morning after he reportedly asked lawmakers hours earlier in the Oval Office, “Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?”
By 7:45 a.m., the president took to his favorite platform, Twitter, to address his reported comment.
Over the course of five rapid-fire tweets, followed by one more 40 minutes later about Haiti, he denied the reported language choice, while doubling down on his immigration stance.
“The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used. What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made – a big setback for DACA!”
