Many in the mainstream media are still hyperventilating over a report last week claiming President Donald Trump said he didn’t want to give immigration protections to people from “s**thole” counties such as Haiti and Africa.
The White House – and two other senators who were in the meeting – have denied Trump ever made the claim, which was detailed in a Washington Post report using anonymous sources who claimed to have been at the meeting.
As lawmakers work toward finding a legislative solution to the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, Democrats are saying Trump should allow roughly 800,000 DACA beneficiaries to remain in the U.S. without getting anything in return to prove he’s not a racist.
Trump wants funding for the border wall, an end to the immigration diversity lottery system, and a reduction in chain migration, and Democrats say that makes him racist.
While answering questions about the DACA deal on Tuesday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked again if Trump was a racist for his alleged comments about Haiti.
Her response utterly obliterated liberals argument:
“Look, I think that it is an outrageous claim, and frankly, I think if the critics of the president were who he said he was, why did NBC give him a show for a decade on TV? Why did Chuck Schumer and all his colleagues come and beg Donald Trump for money?
If they are who they try to portray him as, why did they want to be with him for years and years in various activities, whether it was events and fundraisers and other things. I think it’s just an outrageous and ludicrous excuse, and they need to get on board and start actually doing what they were elected to do.”

Sanders is absolutely correct. Trump was never a racist when he had a show on NBC for a decade. But now that he is a Republican president, he’s all of the sudden the most racist human being on the planet.
It’s pathetic, and Sanders has been fighting back against these disingenuous reports.
