During a discussion about a potential immigration deal, Trump reportedly got really frustrated with lawmakers in the Oval Office today. They were gathered to discuss a bipartisan plan to restore protections for immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries, but Trump wasn’t having it.
“Why are we having all these people from s**thole countries come here?” he asked, according to The Washington Post. Trump went on to suggest the US bring more immigrants from countries like Norway instead.
The Posts reports that lawmakers in the room were taken aback by Trump’s comments, however a White House official defended his position.
