Kirsters Baish| A joint press conference was held by President Donald Trump and Nigerian President Buhari today. The conference had barely begun when White House Reporters began to try and turn the two leaders against one another. One reporter could be heard asking President Buhari about the allegation that President Donald Trump had referred to some African countries as “Sh*thole countries.” It was obvious that the reporter was trying to get a rise out of Trump all the while trying to turn Buhari against Trump.
President Buhari didn’t give into the liberal media, however. He stared right at the reporter who asked the question and explained that he doesn’t trust everything that the media reports on because they have perpetuated so many lies about President Trump already.
Pres. Buhari: Well, I’m very careful with what the Press says about others and myself. I’m not sure about the validity or whether that allegation against the President is true or not. So the best thing for me is to keep quit.
Pres. Trump: We didn’t discuss it. And you do have some countries that are in very bad shape and very tough places to live in. But we didn’t discuss it because the President knows me. And he knows where i’m coming from and I appreciate that.
At the time that the alleged comment was made, Insider.FoxNews.com reported:
Tucker Carlson said President Trump’s controversial comment about the U.S. accepting immigrants from “s***hole countries” is forcing a conversation that elected leaders don’t want to have.
“Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?” Trump said during a bipartisan meeting on immigration earlier this week, according to multiple people in the room. The statement was confirmed by Fox News.
The Washington Post reported that he singled out Haitians, asking: “Why do we need more Haitians? Take them out.”
The remarks stirred criticism from lawmakers on both sides of the aisle, along with the mainstream media.
The Fox host explained that Trump prompted questions that leaders do not want to answer, who are we allowing into our country, and what are they doing once they arrive? Carlson reminded that the United States has taken in 23,000 Hatian immigrants and 172,000 Mexican immigrants in 2017 alone.
“Has America become a better country as a result? Maybe, maybe not. Maybe we ought to talk it through and decide before we continue with our current immigration policy,” Carlson stated. “Leaders who actually cared about their people would do exactly that.”
