Donald Trump has seriously crossed a line with his latest bigoted comment.
As we previously reported, during a meeting with lawmakers about immigration, the President allegedly claimed that immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador, and Africa came from “shithole countries.” It’s said the Cheeto-In-Chief went on to defend that he’d rather immigrants come from countries like Norway.
SO RUDE. Understandably, the Trumpster’s remarks have since been heavily criticized, especially by his famous peers.
On Thursday, A-listers — including Anderson Cooper, John Legend, Chelsea Clinton, etc. — took to Twitter to drag POTUS for his tactlessness and racism. Be sure to take a look at the best reactions (below).
“Let me be clear…. the people of Haiti have been through more, withstood more, fought back against more injustice… than our President ever has” Anderson Cooper choked back tears as he reflected on his relationship with Haiti, and its people https://t.co/3arEalkKOM

The president is a racist. He has been for his entire public life. If you vote(d) for him, you do so because of that or despite that. We need a multi-racial anti-racist coalition to defeat him and try to heal our nation.

Mr. President, immigrants from El Salvador, Haiti and the 54 countries in Africa likely helped build your buildings. They├óΓé¼Γäóve certainly helped build our country. cc @POTUS https://t.co/hv1QYRoRy3

The only shithole is Tr*mp.

In a week Trump will do/say something that’ll make today’s “shithole” comment seem quant. Does anyone remember “Mexicans are rapists,” “bleeding out of her whatever” and “good people on both sides”? Happy 11th day of 2018, everyone!

Wishing all those affected by the earthquake, the last hurricane and everything else they have had to deal with all the best from our country. #respect

He also said countries like Norway are cool.
Can├óΓé¼Γäót wait until we get rid of this shithole president.

I├óΓé¼Γäóm just gonna start calling him president Shithole.

Of course, the 71-year-old politician has since denied using derogatory language. In fact, Donnie has defended that he simply used “tough” language. On Friday, he noted online:
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!

*Eye roll* That’s his go to move — deny, deny, deny.
Just quit already. WE’RE BEGGING YOU.
