Two House Democrats to introduce censure resolution in response to Trump's 'shithole' comments

Two top House Democrats said Friday they will introduce a resolution to censure President Trump in the wake of vulgar comments he made Thursday about immigrants coming from "shithole countries."

“We were deeply disturbed and offended by President Trump’s remarks regarding Haiti and African countries,” Congressional Black Caucus Chairman Cedric Richmond, D-La., and House Judiciary Committee ranking member Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., said in a statement.

“The countries he called ‘shitholes’ produce immigrants that are remarkable and make significant contributions to our country.

The president also reportedly made a disparaging comment about Haitians when the discussion turned to temporary protected status programs.

Lawmakers who attended the meeting have since released conflicting statements addressing Trump's remarks.
