The Internet Smacks Trump Down To a Piñata Over His Racist Comments

Donald Trump’s remarks, referring to Haiti and some African nations as “shithole countries,” have sparked a wave of bipartisan criticism across Capitol Hill, and the nation as a whole.

Amid intense backlash, the White House Thursday night did not deny the comments, saying only that Trump would continue to “fight” for Americans while other lawmakers fought for “foreign countries.”

“Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people,” White House spokesman Raj Shah said.

Friday morning, however, Trump took to Twitter to deny the comments, accusing Democrats of making them up and touting his relationship with the Haitian people.

“Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country. Never said ‘take them out.’ Made up by Dems. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians,” Trump tweeted Friday.

Twitter users were not buying it and their responses were brutal.
