Thousands of Haitians took to the streets of Port-au-Prince to denounce US President Donald Trump's alleged 'shithole' comment on Monday. The protesters initially planned on heading to the US Embassy, where they would converge having started in several different places, however a police barricade stopped them from doing so. The demonstration passed without incident, aside from minor scuffles with police at the barricade. «We cannot forget all imperialist countries, especially the US. We were occupied from 1915 to 1934, they did nothing for us, they destroyed our Creole pigs, our national production to export rice to our country, and our mines were exploited to make their home wealthy. We denounce Donald Trump,» said one of the protesters. Trump sparked international controversy following reports that he referred to Haiti, El Salvador and African countries using the word 'shithole' during a meeting on immigration in the Oval Office earlier in the month.
