Hillary Clinton Condemns Trump's 'Sh*thole' Remarks: 'Ignorant' And 'Racist'

Hillary Clinton took to social media Friday to honor those who were impacted by the Haiti earthquake on the eighth anniversary, and also to condemn Thursday’s remarks from Donald Trump.

Trump’s widely reported comment came Thursday during a bipartisan meeting with lawmakers on immigration in which he used the term “shithole” to describe Haiti and African countries and expressed an interest in accepting immigrants from countries like Norway, whose prime minister he had spoken with the day before.

In her tweet, Clinton said that Trump’s statements were “racist” and “ignorant:”




It’s worth knowing that Trump has since *sort of* denied making the controversial comments. Democratic Senator from Illinois Dick Durbin said on Friday that the president did indeed use the term “shithole” during the course of the meeting on immigration reform — which Durbin attended. The senator described Mr. Trump as saying “things which were hate-filled, vile and racist.”

2. * Sigh * Why can't we just all collectively make a new WH and call her president?

The RW can have their illegitimate shitgobbin and the majority of Americans, 66 million who voted for the popular winner, HRC, can have the true leader of the free world.

5. Trump & Cons trying to make it about the word & not about racist comparison of Norwegians v Haitians


The remark was about the PEOPLE coming from the "shithole countries". The disgusting reference to the countries was byplay compared to the inherent racism in the comparison of the PEOPLE.
