Haitian President Jovenel Moise will be issuing a formal diplomatic complaint against the US

President Donald Trump ignited a firestorm on Thursday when it was reported that he had called Haiti, El Salvador, and African nations "shithole countries" at a bipartisan meeting on immigration, and said the US needed more immigrants from countries like Norway.
