Hakeem Jeffries: ‘Immigrants From Africa Are Amongst Some of the Most Educated in the World’ and ‘Have Contributed in a Mighty Way’ to America
JEFFRIES: "One thing that is clear is that we should hear from some of the Republican house members who were in that oval office meeting. In particular, wolf, the number two house Republican, majority leader Kevin McCarthy, was in that meeting. What does he have to say about the vile and racist nature of Donald Trump’s remarks? Is he troubled at all that the nation’s commander in chief, the leader of the free world, would characterize people from Haiti and Africa in such an ignorant fashion? By the way, Wolf, this is another example of the fact that this president operates in a fact-free zone. Immigrants from Africa are amongst some of the most educated in the world. They have contributed in a mighty way to city after city across the United States of America, including in my own congressional district. It would be nice if the president once in awhile would actually pay attention to the reality on the ground."
