Teresa Jacobs, the Mayor of Orange County, released a statement this afternoon in response to remarks allegedly made by President Donald Trump in the Oval Office yesterday.

Here is Jacobs’ statement:

“Yesterday, we heard reports of a very disparaging comment attributed to the President. Although I have no way of knowing whether these reports are accurate, I do know that on the eve of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, when we honor his legacy of love, equality, peace and justice, it’s more important than ever that we keep the principles of equality, respect and inclusion at the forefront. Orange County is recognized as a community that is both respectful and joyous in celebrating our wonderful blend of culture, religion and diversity. We deeply value all who have chosen to live here, including individuals and families from Haiti, El Salvador and the countries of Africa. We celebrate their heritage and culture, as well as their contributions to our community.”

According to a report in The Washington Post, President Trump grew frustrated with lawmakers on Thursday in the Oval Office when they discussed protecting immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries as part of a bipartisan immigration deal, according to several people briefed on the meeting.

The Post’s sources said the President made this remark:

“Why are we having all these people from s—hole countries come here?”

 The Post’s sources also said that Trump suggested that the United States should instead bring more people from countries such as Norway.

“Why do we need more Haitians?” Trump said, according to Post sources described as White House officials. “Take them out.”

This morning, the President denied he used the phrase “s—hole countries” to describe foreign nations during the oval office meeting.

“The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used. What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made — a big setback for DACA!” the president tweeted Friday, referring to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.”

Trump also denied he made derogatory comments about Haitians, including “Why do we want people from Haiti here?” and saying that all Haitians have AIDS.

“Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country,” Trump tweeted. “Never said ‘take them out.’ Made up by Dems. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians. Probably should record future meetings — unfortunately, no trust!”

  1. I wasn’t always a fan of Mayor Jacobs, but I have really grown to appreciate her, and I think she has grown in knowledge too, since the beginning of her being Mayor of Orange County. I will miss her as the Mayor of Orange County. These comments by Trump she addresses, oh she knows, yes, everybody knows!…..LOL

  2. Vial comments by Trump , retold to us by Sen Durbin….a proven liar from Illinois………..if one considers the source…..forming an opinion and commenting to others that conclusion might make you a useful idiot…or worse….imho

  3. Check out the Huffington Post. Google Huff Post, and take a look at an artist’s work of his projection he is projecting onto the Trump International Hotel in Washington D.C. The projection shows the word, “S—Hole”, the word Trump used to describe African nations, and Haiti. Also the projection cast on Trump’s hotel has piles of poop with smiling emojil faces all over the hotel. This artist has also added the phrase, #Resist… plus this is not his first work of art cast onto the Trump hotel, if you read the article and watch the video….LOL

  4. I wish a plastic surgeon somewhere would volunteer to alter “the Donald’s” pucker up. You just KNOW when he uses that pucker up, that the junk de jour is fixin’ to spout out of that potty hole pucker up.

  5. I bet Trump would pass any lie detector test anywhere. I have heard of those kinds of people, that tell so many tales, that they pass lie detector tests with flying colors…..ha ha

  6. Trump might prefer the immigrants from Norway, but like someone said, they don’t want to come to this country. They got it made in their own country. Free healthcare, free college, and more…..Trump wants Russian immigrants mainly, and oh yeah, some Saudis too, he likes Saudi Arabian immigrants, and immigrants from Slovia too, I would think.

  7. Has anyone seen that porn star that some are claiming that Trump had a fling with, when he supposed was already married to Melania and she was pregnant with Barron, so they are claiming. I saw her photo (the porn star) What do you all think about her looks? I would tell you what I REALLY think, but this is a family oriented website! ha ha ha
