On Thursday, President Donald Trump reportedly asked a group of pro-amnesty senators why the U.S. should welcome migrants from “shitholes” like Haiti or Central America. The same night, Haiti formally summoned a U.S. official to come before the government and explain what Trump meant by “shithole.” However, there was no need for any further explanation once a picture surfaced online that instantly shut all of Trump’s haters up.

President Trump was meeting with senators in the Oval Office on Thursday in an effort to reach a compromise on immigration. “Why do we want all these people from shithole countries coming here?” Trump reportedly asked the team of senators incredulously before allegedly saying, “Why do we need more Haitians? Take them out.”

CNN, of course, was outraged that Trump would use such “vulgar terms” to describe another nation:

President Donald Trump, using vulgar terms, rejected a pitch Thursday from a bipartisan team of senators on a compromise immigration deal to protect DACA participants while increasing border security.

“Why do we want all these people from ‘shithole countries’ coming here?” Trump told senators in the Oval Office, a source briefed on the meeting told CNN.

The source said Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin was explaining to him a proposal to end the visa lottery in exchange for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for countries such as El Salvador. Durbin was going through a list of TPS countries that would be covered. When he got to Haiti, Trump asked why the US wants more people from Haiti and African countries.

According to The Gateway Pundit, in response to Trump’s comment, the Haitian government reportedly “summoned” a U.S. official to “explain” what the president meant.

MSNBC contributor Yamiche Alcindor tweeted, “Haiti’s US Ambassador Paul Altidor tells me Haiti’s government has formerly [sic] summoned a US official to explain Trump’s comments to Haiti’s officials. ‘Haitians fought along US soldiers in the revolutionary war and we continue to be great contributors to American society,’ he said.”

Apparently, in her haste to condemn the president, Alcindor neglected to proofread her tweet. She later corrected herself, blaming autocorrect and saying that “everyone knew what it meant” when she used the word “formerly” instead of “formally.”

That time autocorrect hit me again but thankfully everyone knew what it meant. The Haitian government has “formally” asked the US government to explain itself.

“I just talked to Haiti’s Ambassador to the United States Paul Altidor who said he and the Haitian government ‘vehemently condemn’ President Trump’s comments which they believe are ‘based on stereotypes,'” Alcindor added. “Either the president has been misinformed or he is miseducated,” she quoted the Ambassador as saying.
