This is the letter I just talked about on @MSNBC with @PoliticsNation. A group of Haitian American diplomats working for the United States released a letter expressing their dismay at the President’s comments. https://t.co/5ROjoyo4fw

I’m back on @MSNBC right now at 6.
I’ll be on @msnbc in a few seconds talking about President Trump’s comments.
Congrats Heidi! That’s awesome for you!
@vladduthiersCBS @andersoncooper Thanks for your reporting. I remember being glued to the TV watching Anderson. It is that in depth and personal storytelling that makes you both great journalists.
I’ll be on @MSNBC talking with @maddow at 9:20 pm tonight about President Trump’s latest comments about immigrants and Haitians in particular. Tune in!
Haiti’s US Ambassador Paul Altidor tells me Haiti’s government has formerly summoned a US official to explain Trump’s comments to Haiti’s officials. “Haitians fought along US soldiers in the revolutionary war and we continue to be great contributors to American society,” he saidhttps://t.co/adRajn3O5y
I just talked to Haiti’s Ambassador to the United States Paul Altidor who said he and the Haitian government “vehemently condemn” President Trump’s comments which they believe are “based on stereotypes.” “Either the president has been misinformed or he is miseducated.”
Just got off the phone with a Haitian family member in Florida who was near tears talking about President Trump’s comments. Here’s the thing, not only are his comments wrong but they’re hurtful to a people who have already lived through so many insults.
