No thanks Trump, ' another user tweeted. It is grotesque and we must endure it for another three or seven years, given that the Republicans have a stranglehold on power right now and are more invested in holding onto that power than working for the greater good of all Americans. Because they already have all those things.
Pascale Marra said the remark goes against a long history - more than 200 years of friendship and cooperation between the US and Haiti, which share the same democratic values. He did not respond to questions regarding his alleged comments.
In a statement, the Haitian government expressed its shock and outrage.

Botswana's foreign ministry summoned the U.S. ambassador in protest and called the comments "highly irresponsible, reprehensible and racist". It isn't relevant in 2018, especially to the President of the United States who must act as a diplomat and must deal with the nations of the world, whose support American needs in many arenas - from cooperation on global security and energy and climate goals, to votes in the United Nations.
The Washington Postreported the comments Thursday. Using them, he said, implies that Latin American people are "worth nothing". It is scary to think that people would perceive us in a threatening fashion.
Though PresidentDonald Trumpdenies he denigrated Haitian, Salvadoran and African immigrants, his comments last week are not revelatory. When you speak about chain migration, it hurts them personally.

'He will always reject temporary, weak and risky stopgap measures that threaten the lives of hardworking Americans, and undercut immigrants who seek a better life in the United States through a legal pathway'.
