Under Oath, DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said Donald Trump didn’t refer to African Countries as ‘sh*tholes’.
Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen testified under oath Tuesday that she did not hear President Trump call Haiti, El Salvador and other developing nations “sh—hole” countries in a controversial meeting last week — though she did say he used “tough language.”
Mr. Nielsen also said “other congressmen” in the meeting used tough language when they were negotiating with Mr. Trump, though she did not name them.
“The conversation was very impassioned,” said Ms. Nielsen, who was in the room. “I don’t dispute the president was using tough language. Others in the room were also using tough language.”
This he said she said stuff is really nonsense but one part does strike me as a new development. That is her talking about how passionate the conversation was and that tough language was being used by a lot of members in the room. One thing is clear. This is a selective leak and as usual, didn’t fully represent the entire conversation.
