“It’s not how a president should speak. It’s not how a president should behave. Most of all, it’s not what a president should believe,” Biden tweeted Friday. “We’re better than this.”
The Washington Post reported Thursday that in a meeting with lawmakers, Trump referred to immigrants from Haiti and African countries as coming from “shithole countries.”
Trump also reportedly said the U.S. should bring in more immigrants from countries like Norway.
In a statement Thursday, the White House did not deny Trump’s “shithole” comments.
