Haitians angered by comments President Donald Trump is said to have made about their country are engaged in a shouting match with pro Trump protesters down the street from the president’s Mar a Lago retreat.
Video posted by WPEC TV showed several hundred pro Haiti demonstrators yelling from one side of the street Monday while waving Haitian flags. The Haitians and their supporters shouted, “Our country is not a shithole,” referring to comments the president reportedly made last week during a meeting with senators about immigration. Trump has said that is not the language he used.
The smaller pro Trump contingent waved American flags and campaign posters and yelled, “Trump is making America great again.” One man could be seen telling the Haitians to leave the country. Police kept the sides apart.
The corner is across the bridge that leads to Mar a Lago. Trump has been at the resort for the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend and his motorcade usually passes that corner. Monday would have been King’s 89th birthday.
