Donald Trump questions immigration from 's***hole' countries

  e-mail
US President Donald Trump asked why the US allows immigration from "s***hole countries" while discussing a plan with two senators in the Oval Office, multiple sources say. The White House denied the reports.

US President Donald Trump used a vulgar phrase as he was briefed on a bipartisan immigration plan at a meeting on Thursday, which would affect migrants from Africa, Haiti, and some Latin America nations.

"Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?" Trump asked the two lawmakers present at the Oval Office meeting.

He then suggested the US should take in more people from countries Norway, according to the Washington Post. Trump meet Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg on the day before.

Other sources cited by the AP news agency also confirmed the report. All of the sources spoke on condition of anonymity.

 When asked for comment, White House spokesman Raj Shad did not deny Trump making the remarks. "Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people," Shad said.
