White House Pushes Back at Times Immigration Report: 'Outrageous'

The White House has furiously denied a New York Times report which claims President Trump said "everyone" from Haiti has AIDS during a June meeting on immigration.

Reacting to a document that said 15,000 Haitians had received visas to the U.S.in 2017, Trump grumbled, "They all have AIDS".

In an Oval Office meeting in July, the sources said, Trump read from a list in his hand during a discussion about immigrants who had been granted to enter the country.

According to the Times report, Kelly and Miller became frustrated with Tillerson, blaming the secretary of state for the flow of people from overseas.

Forty thousand had come from Nigeria, Mr. Trump added.

While Donald Trump has already made major moves to enact his strict anti-immigrant agenda, the president is reportedly deeply frustrated that he hasn't been able to do more to close America's borders to outsiders, and to expel those he feels have overstayed their welcome.

After that, The Times reports, Kelly, Tillerson, and senior policy adviser Stephen Miller got into an argument.

Although Haiti does have one of the highest rates of AIDS in the world at around 2.1 percent of adults, it is dropping. The 40,000 Nigerians who had obtained visas would never "go back to their huts" in Africa, he fumed, according to the two officials-one who was at the meeting and another who heard about the comments from another person in attendance.

But White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders shot down those claims Saturday.

"General Kelly, General McMaster, Secretary Tillerson, Secretary Nielsen, and all other ranking staff very the gathering deny these absurd cases and it's both tragic and telling the New York Times would print the lies of their unknown "sources" in any case", Sanders said.

The Times said its report came from more than three dozen interviews, but at the same time, noted that several other people at the meeting told them they did not recall Trump using the words.

The report comes on the heels of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals' ruling Friday that Trump's travel ban, the third he has proposed since becoming president, is illegal.
