CNN’s Jake Tapper Admits Trump’s ‘Sh*thole’ Statement Was Twisted by Fake News Reporters

Media was set ablaze Thursday after President Trump reportedly responded to the ‘gang of 6’ immigration proposal with some fiery language.

President Trump went on a tweet storm Friday morning and said the reports of the language he used is fake news. It didn’t go down the way it’s being reported. Shocker!

POTUS denied having said anything derogatory about Haitians.

“Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country. Never said “take them out.” Made up by Dems. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians. Probably should record future meetings – unfortunately, no trust!” Tweeted Trump.

Trump says he never used the fiery language that is being reported.

“The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used. What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made – a big setback for DACA!” Trump tweeted,

CNN’s Fake Tapper admitted Friday morning in a tweetstorm that reporters twisted President Trump’s words. Imagine our shock!

Tapper began with, “So how and why is President Trump denying the remarks that he reportedly said? I have some clarifying reporting from a source familiar the meeting. I want to start by saying that this does not make what he said any more acceptable, but it might shed some light on it all.”

“The president did not refer to Haiti as a “shithole” country according to the source familiar with the meeting… though he DID say it about countries in Africa… What happened, the source says, is there was a conflation of two different remarks by the president,” Tapper tweeted.

“First, when talking about “temporary protected status” countries as part of the immigration deal it was mentioned that Salvadorans, Hondurans and Haitians have that status.”

““Haitians?” the president said. “Why do we need more Haitians? Take them out” —- meaning take them out of the deal.”

“Then in a separate part of the conversation when they were referencing the diversity visa lottery, President Trump referred to people coming from Africa as coming from “shithole countries.” Again, I’m not saying this is better. Just that this is what happened, per my source.”

“So that might explain the kinda-pushback from POTUS today. -fin-”

John Cardillo tweeted, “In this thread makes excuses for his anonymous source conflating statements, fabricating one, then attributing it to POTUS. This casts serious doubts whether or not Trump said any of this, yet Tapper is reporting as fact when he should be retracting until confirm.”

Many are speculating that this ‘sh**hole’ story was drummed up to distract from Project Veritas’ bombshell undercover video exposing Twitter’s tactics to ban people who support Trump.
