  • Trump Said Haitians Have AIDS, Nigerians Live In Huts in Oval Office Meeting, New York Times Reports

In a shocking story Saturday, The New York Times cited two sources who described in explicit terms how Trump has raged against his advisers for not doing more to translate his nativist politics into policy.

According to the newspaper, back in June, after being informed how many foreigners had obtained visas to enter the United States this year, the president said Haitians "all have AIDS".

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, White House Chief of Staff General John.

The Times reported that the president in June, entering a meeting with top administration officials after meeting with policy adviser Stephen Miller, Mr. Trump made comments about people who came to the country from Haiti and Nigeria.

US President Donald Trump has reportedly claimed Haitians "all have AIDS" and Nigerians live in "huts".

They said that on the day in question, Trump stormed into the Oval Office clutching "sheets of papers" which revealed how many immigrants had been allowed into the United States since he took office.

Once they had seen what the US had to offer, those immigrants would never "go back to their huts" in Africa, Trump reportedly said.

"General Kelly, General McMaster, Secretary Tillerson, Secretary Nielsen, and all other senior staff actually in the meeting deny these outrageous claims and it's both sad and telling the New York Times would print the lies of their anonymous "sources" anyway", she said.

Reports of Trump's remarks come as his administration has sought to dramatically reshape the U.S. immigration system from almost every angle possible. If he was so bad at his job, maybe he should stop issuing visas altogether, Mr. Tillerson fired back.

He branded Afghanistan, which had 2,500 of its citizens getting USA visa, a terrorist haven.

Tempers flared and Mr. Kelly asked that the room be cleared of staff members.

The report was leaked by someone who was at the meeting and confirmed by others who were briefed on the meeting.

It, however, denied that Trump used the words "AIDS" or "huts" in referring to people from any country.

"He's basically saying, 'You people of color coming to America seeking the American dream are a threat to the white people, '" said Mr. Sharry, an outspoken critic of the president.
