Senator John McCain reacted to the offensive words President Trump allegedly used in a meeting about the proposed bipartisan immigration reform.
Trump reportedly grew frustrated with immigration talks Thursday, using a crude description to describe Haiti, El Salvador and African countries. In the talks, he was presented an immigration reform by the “gang of six”.
Reports show that Trump suggested that we should attract more people from countries like Norway.
The White House did not deny the comments. Raj Shah, spokesperson for the White House said that “certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people”.
Senator John McCain released the below statement:
Respect for the God-given dignity of every human being, no matter their race, ethnicity or other circumstances of their birth, is the essence of American patriotism. To believe otherwise is to oppose the very idea of America. People have come to this country from everywhere, and people from everywhere have made America great. Our immigration policy should reflect that truth, and our elected officials, including our President, should respect it.
