NYT: Trump Slandered Haitian Visa Holders, Falsely Claiming “They All Have AIDS

HeadlineDec 26, 2017

The New York Times reports President Trump made derogatory and false claims about a number of different immigrant groups during an Oval Office meeting in June. Trump reportedly fumed about Haitians who had received U.S. visas, falsely claiming “they all have AIDs.” He also complained about Nigerians who had received visas, saying that after they came to the U.S, they would never “go back to their huts” in Africa. Trump also called Afghanistan a “terrorist haven.” The White House has denied Trump made the derogatory statements.
