Nigerians live in huts, will never return once they enter US- Trump

Ebun Francis || President Donald Trump a fit of anger during a June cabinet meeting in the Oval Office, said that Nigerians would never “go back to their huts” once they saw America and that all Haitians entering the U.S. ”have AIDS, according to a report in The New York Times published Saturday.

“More than 2,500 were from Afghanistan, a terrorist haven, the president complained,” officials in the meeting reportedly told New York Times.

“Haiti had sent 15,000 people. They all have AIDS.

“Forty thousand had come from Nigeria, Mr. Trump added. Once they had seen the United States, they would never ‘go back to their huts’ in Africa.”

The White House has, however, denied that President Trump made the controversial remarks. “General Kelly, General McMaster, Secretary Tillerson, Secretary Nielsen and all other senior staff actually in the meeting deny these outrageous claims,” Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told The New York Times. “It’s both sad and telling The New York Times would print the lies of their anonymous ‘sources’ anyway.”

The Times reported the president made the comments after adviser Stephen Miller gave him a list numbering the immigrants from certain countries who had received visas during the Trump presidency, despite the Republican running on a hard-line anti-immigration platform.
