What is a “Shithole Country,” and Why is Trump Obsessed with Haiti?

Mark Schuller
Calling the world’s beacon of freedom a “shithole” sullies not only Haiti’s ten million residents on the island and three million in the U.S., but is an affront to human freedom and equality.
People join together to mark the 8th anniversary of the massive earthquake in Haiti and to condemn President Donald Trump's reported statement about immigrants from Haiti, Africa and El Salvador on January 12, 2018 in Miami, Florida. President Trump is reported to have called those places 'shithole countries' whose inhabitants are not desirable for U.S. immigration.
