The Botswanan government asked President Donald Trump to clarify whether or not it is, in fact, a “shithole” in a press release.
“The Botswana Government has also enquired from the US Government through the Ambassador, to clarify if Botswana is regarded as a “shithole” country,” the nation’s government said in a press release Friday. “The Botswana Government is wondering why President Trump, must use this descriptor and derogatory word, when talking about countries with whom the US has had cordial and mutually beneficial bilateral relations for so many years.”

The Washington Post reported Thursday evening that the president said, “why are we accepting all these people from shithole countries?” The president reportedly said this in a meeting with lawmakers in reference to immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries.
