Trump's pungent, profane insult to immigrants

Cooper recapped Trump's comments, and said, "Tired of Africans and Haitians, the president went on to say that he would like to bring more people from countries like Norway - Norway, whose population is overwhelmingly of Nordic descent, white people in other words".

The White House is not denying that President Donald Trump used a vulgar expression Thursday when talking about immigrants from Haiti and African countries during a meeting with lawmakers in the Oval Office.

The comment was made during a recent discussion with congressional leaders, according to a report in the Washington Post. He then suggested that more immigrants be allowed from Norway, whose prime minister he met with yesterday, the Post said.

The White House has declined to comment on the matter at this time.

He has pledged to cut legal immigration by half while he infamously promised a "Great Wall" along the Mexican border.

The report was published Thursday (Jan. 11) via The New York Times and The Washington Post just hours after the meeting.
