President Donald Trump referred to Haiti and African nations as “shithole countries” during a meeting with a bipartisan group of senators at the White House last year, a Democratic aide briefed on that Thursday’s meeting told NBC News.

Trump’s comments were first reported by The Washington Post, which said the nations referred to by Trump also included El Salvador.

Sadly, many of the things Trump does and says are reflective of a leader of a country that is disrespected by the rest of the world, and that includes cozying up to murderous dictators and locking immigrant children in cages.
