Is Trump telling the truth when he claims Haitian refugees have AIDS? ‘Racist fearmongering’ is slammed on the internet.
Trump continued his anti-immigrant tirade by claiming that numerous countries were ’emptying out their inmates into the United States.’
On Thursday night, October 7, former President Donald Trump — who famously called Mexican immigrants “rapists” at the opening of his presidential campaign in 2015, setting the tone for his subsequent four-year presidency — made another outrageous accusation regarding Haitian immigrants. Trump said that thousands of Haitian migrants on their way to the US-Mexico border are infected with the AIDS virus.
According to a Reuters investigation, hundreds of largely Haitian migrants crossed into Del Rio, Texas, last month. Thousands of people fled to Mexico to avoid being deported to Haiti by the US government. According to Andres Ramirez, the chairman of the Mexican Commission for Refugee Assistance, most Haitians do not qualify for asylum in Mexico because they departed for economic reasons years ago (COMAR). After Haiti’s terrible 2010 earthquake, the majority of Haitians moved in Brazil and Chile, but are now migrating north owing to dismal economic prospects in their adopted nations, according to Ramirez. “They’re not really refugees, and they don’t want to be refugees,” he explained. “The vast majority of people desire to travel to the United States.” News from the Brinkwire Shana Chappell: The mother of a slain Marine welcomes Trump to the funeral of her son. Melania Trump was not with Trump on election night because she “loved sleep,” according to an ex-White House press secretary. Trump called into Sean Hannity’s Fox News broadcast on Thursday and made unfounded claims. “We have hundreds of thousands of people streaming in from Haiti,” Trump said Hannity, referring to Haiti and African countries as “shithole countries” at a discussion with a bipartisan group of senators at the White House in 2018. AIDS is a major concern in Haiti. AIDS is a step farther. AIDS is a serious issue.” Trump exaggerates the threat of AIDS among Haitian migrants.
“Take a look at what’s going on in Haiti, where AIDS is raging. Many of those people will almost certainly have AIDS and will be entering our nation… It’s almost as if it’s a death wish, a death wish for our country.” pic.twitter.com/mfBnXKGstS October 8, 2021 — Justin Baragona (@justinbaragona) “So hundreds of thousands of individuals are coming into our nation that if you look at the figures, if you look at the numbers, if you look at — just look at what’s going on in Haiti, a massive AIDS problem,” the former president stated. “Many of those people are likely to have AIDS, and they’re pouring into our nation, and we’re doing nothing to stop them.” Brinkwire News in a Nutshell
