Anderson Cooper Gets Emotional While Condemning Donald Trump's 'S-hole Countries' Remark

By Aimee Lutkin

On Thursday, the Washington Post reported that Donald Trump once more lowered the bar for acceptable things a president can say.

Trump met with lawmakers at the White House, who are trying to negotiate with him about immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador, and various African countries. The Trump administration recently announced that they're kicking out 200,000 El Salvadorians who came here following a devastating earthquake twenty years ago, many of whom have established families, including children who have been born and raised here. This will split parents from their children, and people from their homes.

Of course, Trump is seemingly unmoved by such an eventuality, and when confronted by advocates for taking a softer line on deportation, he reportedly said, "Why are we having all these people from s-hole countries come here?”

He then added, "Why do we need more Haitians? Take them out.”
