The Haitian government "vehemently condemn" the recent comment of American President Donald Trump, referring to countries such as El Salvador, Haiti and other African nations as "shit holes" during a meeting Thursday with lawmakers.

Haiti’s US Ambassador, Paul Altidor, confirms that Haiti’s government has formerly summoned the American representative in Haiti to explain Trump’s comments to Haiti’s officials.  “Haitians fought along US soldiers in the revolutionary war and we continue to be great contributors to American society,” he said to former NYTimes reporter Yamiche Alcindor, whom interviewed the ambassador shortly after the news of the alleged comments surfaced.
