Haiti ambassador: US official summoned to explain 'shithole' remark

Paul Altidor, Haiti’s ambassador to the United States, said he and the Haitian government “vehemently condemn” the remark President Trump reportedly made, calling Haiti, El Salvador, and African nations “shithole countries.”

“Haitians fought along U.S. soldiers in the Revolutionary War and we continue to be great contributors to American society,” Altidor said, according to Yamiche Alcindor, a PBS NewsHour White House correspondent.

Altidor said he and the Haitian government consider the comments to be “based on stereotypes" and called them an "assault" on Haitian citizens and the country's history.

“Either the president has been misinformed or he is miseducated,” he said.
