Jake Tapper is now clarifying that his sources said that Trump did not refer to Haiti as a shithole, that he was referring to other TPS countries, or say ‘take them out’ meaning remove them from the country, that he said ‘take them out’ meaning remove them from the temporary protected status deal.
So that now means there’s three different versions of what was supposedly said.
Via NY Post:
President Trump on Friday shot down reports that he said anything offensive about the people of Haiti, which he reportedly described – along with Africa – as a “shithole.”
“Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country,” Trump said about an hour after his initial “shithole” slur denial.
“Never said ‘take them out. Made up by Dems. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians. Probably should record future meetings – unfortunately, no trust!” he added.
