  • NYT: Trump Said in June Haitians 'All Have AIDS,' Nigerians Live in 'Huts'

"It's both sad and telling The New York Times would print the lies of their anonymous "sources".

An article in the Times on Saturday cited two Trump administration officials who claimed Trump made the remark about Haitian immigrants in a June meeting in the Oval Office, as well as other remarks aimed at immigrants from Nigeria. But the Times says several other participants told them they "did not recall" the President using those words.

The White House strongly pushed back on a report that President Donald Trump spoke about immigrants in a dismissive and demeaning fashion during a June meeting with top administration officials.

Seizing on immigration as the cause of countless social and economic problems, Mr. Trump entered office with an agenda of symbolic but incompletely thought-out goals, the product not of rigorous policy debate but of emotionally charged personal interactions and an instinct for tapping into the nativist views of white working-class Americans.

The president complained about the more than 2,500 who came from Afghanistan, which the president reportedly described as a terrorist haven.

Trump's effort to change US immigration policy has been a disorderly and sometimes dysfunctional process, the Times story noted, but even as he has been frustrated by the limits on presidential power, his plans have gained increasing momentum as the White House became more disciplined.

But White House has denied it as another fake news from the respected newspaper.

But as the debate progressed, Kelly and Stephen Miller, Trump's domestic policy adviser, reportedly began blaming Tillerson for the flood of foreigners.

After being notified that 40,000 Nigerians had been allowed to enter America legally, Trump said, "if they had seen the United States, they would never go back to their huts", in Africa.

Trump was said to be angered by the rising number of immigrants in the USA despite his travel bans.

Trump was specifically angered that thousands of foreigners had obtained visas during the first year of his presidency, even though he promised campaign supporters he would curtail immigration.

But White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders shot down those claims Saturday.
