A Republican congresswoman, Mia Love of Utah, called on President Trump to apologize for reportedly saying Haiti, El Salvador, and African nations are “shithole countries.”

“The President’s comments are unkind, divisive, elitist, and fly in the face of our nation’s values. This behavior is unacceptable from the leader of our nation,” Love, whose parents are Haitian and was the first black Republican woman elected to Congress, said in a statement Thursday evening.

“The President must apologize to both the American people and the nations he so wantonly maligned,” she added.


Another Republican lawmaker from Utah, Sen. Orrin Hatch, called for a “detailed explanation” about the remark.
