Fox News host Rachel Campos-Duffy took issue with the lawmakers that decided to leak President Trump’s remarks referring to Haiti, El Salvador and several Africa nations as “shithole countries.”
“He was talking about the countries being not so great,” Campos-Duffy explained to her co-hosts on Friday’s edition of Outnumbered. “First of all, I don’t agree with this term. I’m glad Rep. Mia Love (R-UT) put that [written condemnation] out and I would too. Sometimes the best immigrants come from those kind of countries.”
“That said, I still have a problem with people in a private meeting going out and saying what the president said, when they know, like right now, I just heard that the Panamanian ambassador just quit over this,” the wife of Congressman Sean Duffy (R-WI) added.
“I mean, it makes our country look bad,” she continued. “I think the Democrats, in this case, should have used some discretion. And even if he did say something like that, not repeat it for the benefit of the country.”
Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) confirmed on Friday that Trump told lawmakers in the Oval Office that the U.S. should take in fewer immigrants from “shithole countries” and more from places like Norway.
