Omarosa: Trump used expletive to describe Haiti back in early 2017


“When I told (President Trump) that I would be gone for a couple of days, he asked me, ‘Why did you choose that shitty  country as your first foreign trip? You should have waited until the confirmations were done and gone to Scotland and played golf at (his course) Turnberry.’ “”He couldn’t understand why I was so passionate about helping the people of Haiti,” Omarosa told her “View” hosts.

“I had to remind him about his campaign commitments that he made to the Haitian community. I had to remind him that we have an obligation as the wealthiest country in the world, to take care of the poorest country in the world. And he was like, ‘Well I think you should go and wait till K. T. McFarland is confirmed and go to a better country.’ “And without using the expletive itself, Omarosa confirmed that he had said it.

If that sounds familiar, that’s because Trump was accused of (and denied) having referred to Haiti as a “shithole country” along with El Salvador and several African countries while meeting with Congressional leaders this January on immigration policy. He denied the charge.
