Rep. Mia Love (R-Utah), the daughter of Haitian immigrants and the first black female Republican elected to Congress, slammed President Trump's vulgar description of Haiti, El Salvador, and African countries as "divisive" and "elitist."

Trump called the nations "shit holes" during a meeting Thursday with lawmakers, and in a statement, Love said his comments were "unkind" and "fly in the face of our nation's values. This behavior is unacceptable from the leader of our nation." Love said her parents "proudly took an oath of allegiance to the United States and took on the responsibilities of everything that being a citizen comes with. They never took a thing from our federal government. They worked hard, paid taxes, and rose from nothing to take care of and provide opportunities for their children. They taught their children to do the same. That's the American Dream."

Love then called on Trump to apologize "to both the American people and the nations he so wantonly maligned." It was a kinder response than the one Trump received from former president of Mexico Vicente Fox, who said Trump's mouth is "the foulest shit hole in the world."
