Trump’s “shithole countries” remark called racist, angers congressional leaders

A bipartisan wave of disapproval and disappointment towards President Trump has crashed down on the White House after the president referred to certain third world nations as “shithole countries.” Trump made the remark during an Oval Office meeting with congressional leaders to discuss temporary protection status (TPS) countries.

While the president’s comment did not sound as presidential as Republicans would like, to say that the remark was racist seems a bit of a stretch, but that is exactly what one member of the Congressional Black Caucus said.

CBC Chairman Rep. Richmond tweeted that the president’s ‘shithole’ comment was “further proof that his Make America Great Again agenda is really a Make America White Again agenda.”

Democrats like Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D) then piled on, saying that Trump was “a bad person” while others press him to apologize for making the remark.

Joining Rep.Wasserman Schultz in condemning the President Trump’s “shithole” remark were several members of Florida’s congressional caucus, including Senator Marco Rubio (R) and Reps. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R), Ted Deutch (D), and Carlos Curbelo (R).
