Former aide to Florida Governor Jeb Bush and frequent Trump critic, Ana Navarro, attacked President Trump on Thursday for referring to Haiti and some African nations as “s**thole countries” during an Oval Office meeting with lawmakers. Navarro argued that “it shows you just how shamelessly racist [Trump] is” that he would openly admit that in a meeting.
Navarro asked, “Let me tell you, you know why he doesn’t like the visa lottery? Because it’s the way Africans come here. You know why he doesn’t like TPS, temporary protected status? Because right now it covers Haitians, it covers Salvadorans. They are black.”
“Donald Trump has shown us his dark heart, has shown us his racism. I am as desperate as anyone for there to be a [Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals] deal, for there to be a deal on Dreamers,” she continued.
“But we cannot normalize the fact that Donald Trump has turned the Oval Office into a s**thole – into a morally bankrupt place where there are lies and division and racism that comes out every single day,” she added.
Trump has since tweeted denying that he used the word “s**thole”, even though sources have confirmed that he did. The White House also released a statement defending his remarks.
Do you agree with Navarro? Has Trump turned the Oval Office into a “s**thole”?
