President Donald Trump is being attacked as a racist again due to the ALLEGEDLY made comment about “sh*thole countries.”

While there is no proof that Trump made the comment, and he actually denies it, he is popping back at the critics.

On Sunday, the president told reporters “No. I’m not a racist. I’m the least racist person you will ever interview.”

He added, “Did you see what various senators in the room said about my comments? They were not made.”

The Hill reports:

Last week, the president faced widespread backlash after The Washington Post reported that Trump referred to immigrants from African nations, Haiti and El Salvador as people coming from “shithole countries.”

The White House initially did not deny the comment.

Trump then tweeted on Friday that he did not say “anything derogatory about Haitians.”

“Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country. Never said ‘take them out.’ Made up by Dems,” Trump tweeted out.

Republican Sen. David Perdue (Ga.) told ABC News earlier in the day that Trump did not use the word “shithole,” insisting that it’s a “gross misrepresentation” of what he said.
Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), however, maintained that Trump said the remark even after the president denied saying such comments.

Trump on Sunday also told reporters that he wanted to reach a deal on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, but accused Democrats of not wanting to make a deal.

“We are ready willing and able to make a deal on DACA, but I don’t think the Democrats want to make a deal. The folks from DACA should know the Democrats are the ones that aren’t going to make a deal,” Trump said.
