Trump slams Nigerians for not returning to their 'huts' after seeing America

White House Denies Trump Made Racist Statements Against Haitians And Nigerians

The White House strongly pushed back on a report that President Donald Trump spoke about immigrants in a dismissive and demeaning fashion during a June meeting with top administration officials.

He then reportedly said 40,000 had come from Nigeria and would never "go back to their huts" once they had seen America.

"Late to his own meeting and waving a sheet of numbers, President Trump stormed into the Oval Office one day in June, plainly enraged", the report begins.

Other top administration officials who attended the June meeting, such as then-Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, attempted to explain to Trump that numerous visa holders were merely traveling to the USA for short visits before returning to their home countries. "It's both sad and telling The New York Times would print the lies of their anonymous "sources" anyway", she said.

According the sources, when Trump learned 15,000 people from Haiti had been granted U.S. visas, he remarked: "They all have AIDS".

But legal immigration has also become a target, as Trump's reported remarks demonstrate.

The Times cited six officials who attended or knew about the meeting, and who discussed the president's behavior with the publication.

According to the Times report, Kelly and Miller became frustrated with Tillerson, blaming the secretary of state for the flow of people from overseas.

Huckabee Sanders was referring to Chief of Staff John Kelly, National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Secretary of Homeland Security is Kirstjen Nielsen. But as the president continued, Mr. Kelly and Mr. Miller turned their ire on Mr. Tillerson, blaming him for the influx of foreigners and prompting the secretary of state to throw up his arms in frustration.

But White House has denied it as another fake news from the respected newspaper.

Seizing on immigration as the cause of countless social and economic problems, Mr. Trump entered office with an agenda of symbolic but incompletely thought-out goals, the product not of rigorous policy debate but of emotionally charged personal interactions and an instinct for tapping into the nativist views of white working-class Americans.

When the president's first travel ban was blocked, the Times reported, Trump was "furious" and often took his anger out on White House officials.
