President Trump says he never said anything derogatory about Haitians at a bipartisan immigration meeting.
In a tweet Friday, he said Haiti is a very poor and troubled country, but he never said “take them out.”
The president said he has a wonderful relationship with Haitians, and the alleged comments were made-up by Democrats.
The president added, he should record future meetings because of the lack of trust.
Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country. Never said “take them out.” Made up by Dems. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians. Probably should record future meetings – unfortunately, no trust!
