The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or DACA is an Obama-era protection for those who arrived in the country illegally when they were children.

It gave the approximately 59,000 Haitian immigrants who had been granted the status until July 2019 to return home or legalise their presence in the United States.

Beyond the glaring racism, Trump's off-the-cuff remark revealed another aspect of his mentality: he wants successful immigrants only. "Why do we need more Haitians?" "Take them out." Trump then suggested that the United States should instead bring more people from countries such as Norway- his excuse being that the education level was high in that country.

Trump wrote on Twitter early Friday.

On Friday morning, Trump tweeted that he used "tough" language at the meeting, but not the reported vulgarity. "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!"

On Friday, Trump tweeted: "Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country".
