tried walking back his comments referring to immigrants hailing from Haiti, El Salvador, and Africa being from “shithole countries” in a meeting with lawmakers on Thursday.
Unsurprisingly, no one is buying it!

People from these “shithole countries” are taking to Twitter to share their inspirational stories and impressive accomplishments, and it’s really amazing!

Two weeks ago a 26-year old soldier raced repeatedly into a burning Bronx apartment building, saving four people before he died in the flames. His name was Pvt. Emmanuel Mensah and he immigrated from Ghana, a country Donald Trump apparently thinks produces very subpar immigrants.
