Trump Reportedly Said Haitian Immigrants “All Have AIDS” And Talked Of Nigerian Immigrants Not Returning To Their “Huts” In Africa

According to a New York Times report published Saturday, President Trump made multiple racist remarks in the Oval Office earlier this year about different immigrant groups, including those who come from Haiti, Nigeria, and Afghanistan.

Two sources told the Times that in June, during a meeting covering immigration, Trump said that Haitian immigrants “all have AIDS.” The comment came as he read aloud a list of how many immigrants had been approved visas to enter the U.S in 2017 — within it was the figure of 15,000 from Haiti.

Upon reading that 2,500 people from Afghanistan had obtained visas, he described the country as a “terrorist haven.”

When it came to Nigerian immigrants, Trump complained that they would never “go back to their huts” in Africa after setting foot in the U.S.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders denied the reports Saturday morning, though she didn’t deny how the Times described the the overall purpose of the meeting.

“General Kelly, General McMaster, Secretary Tillerson, Secretary Nielsen and all other senior staff actually in the meeting deny these outrageous claims,” said Sanders. “It’s both sad and telling The New York Times would print the lies of their anonymous ‘sources’ anyway.”

Though the Trump and the White House’s official position might be to deny that he ever made these comments, they’d be perfectly consistent with the words of someone who started off his presidential campaign by calling Mexican immigrants rapists and who, in August, claimed that there were “very fine people on both sides” of the groups who clashed in Charlottesville — despite one of these sides being made up of white supremacists.
