Michael Barnett has spent years encouraging Haitian-Americans to vote Republican. And he was an early and continuing supporter of President Donald Trump...
Barnett said he believes the president and doesnt believe Trump feels negatively toward the Haitian people.
The president has denied slandering the Haitian people, and I tend to give him the benefit of the doubt, Barnett said. This off-the-cuff remark was probably not meant to be taken the way it sounded. He does not believe that Haiti was, quote-unquote, a shithole country. I dont believe he believes that.

Duh that was the whole plan. Especially because he didn’t say that about Haiti. For the life of me, i can’t imagine continuing to “negotiate” with Durbin. I’d set up a public meeting and humiliate him and his party on live tv with his radical statements, and then say no deal.
Thin of all of the CDC researchers laid off when the Haitians gather up their infections and go back home. Sad.
I would think that any Haitians who are here didn’t decided to leave Haiti because it’s a pristine paradise...
Of course Haiti is a dunghole. Many third world nations led by despots are.
All three of them?
I can only think of one number: .0001
So sick of this. I would expect blunt talk among men in arguments. No big deal, but doesnt need to be broadcast to the world. To me it is all a Democrat talking point to make an issue out of nothing. Grow up Dems!!!
Hahahaha - we’ll risk it.
I don’t think he said it.
If he did say it, I think it was politically unwise but I don’t think it was that bad.
And I sadly wonder how much of the Haitian vote, so-called, he had to begin with. Although I’d love 100% of the Haitian vote and hope any ex-Haitians voting might recognize that Trump is worthy of their vote.
I do not give a rats ass to anyone that is a hyphenated American - you are either a Haitian or an American. If you are hyphenated go back to your country and fix it.
Most Haitians won’t vote for Republicans they mostly vote Democrat!
Despite Media denial, they may face economic damage among FUNCTIONALLY literate Americans
LOL - my thoughts exactly all 3 Haitian-Americans who actually vote.
Sorry lefties. We’re at a point now where we say and do the right thing and damn the fake liberal torpedoes.
In other words, here’s a track phone - go call someone who cares...
Ya know... this stuff is getting so old... I wish FR would not play their game any longer. Regurgitating all this over and over just fuels the fires that are so unnecessary.
Pres Trump is doing so much good for the country.. I want to celebrate the good things.
Does this mean no more foreign aid from Haiti to United States?
I grew up at the edge of one the three big concentrations of Haitians in the US. Many Haitian students at my high school. Almost all Haitians in the US are liberal Democrats.
