~A HEART FILLED WITH EMOTION~
(On the 8th year after the devastating earthquake)
CNN anchor Anderson Cooper delivered an emotional take-down of Donald Trump on Thursday, ripping into him for referring to Haiti and several African nations as “shithole countries.”
In an emotional monologue, the CNN host implored other reporters to point out that Trump’s remarks were not “racial” or “racially charged,” but “racist.”
“The sentiment the President expressed today is a racist sentiment,” Cooper said.
“The president of the United States is tired of so many black people coming to this country. Tired of immigrants from Haiti and Africa being allowed in,” Cooper said, reading the Post report on Trump’s remarks. “The president went on to say he would like to bring more people from countries like Norway. Norway, whose population is overwhelmingly of Nordic descent. White people, in other words.”
But these comments “are actually not anything new,” Cooper continued. He referenced another incident, as reported by the New York Times, in which Trump accused all Haitian immigrants of having AIDS, and said that Nigerian immigrants would never “go back to their huts” once they saw America.
