The White House has rebuked claims that President Donald Trump said that all Haitian immigrants have AIDS during the private Oval Office meeting in summer, it has been alleged earlier this week. The meeting was with six other senior staffers, including former secretary of homeland John F. Kelly, secretary of state Rex W. Tillerson and the White House chief of staff. Trump read from a document given by domestic policy advisor Stephen Miller and the document read that there were 15 thousand immigrants from Haiti. According to the report Trump suggested that they all might have had AIDS. He also reportedly offended immigrants from Afghanistan and Nigeria, pro-immigration activists said it was humiliating, racist and anti-Muslim. . White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said: “General Kelly, General McMaster, Secretary Tillerson, Secretary Nielsen and all other senior staff actually in the meeting deny these outrageous claims. It’s both sad and telling The New York Times would print the lies of their anonymous ‘sources’ anyway.”
