Liberals are up in arms after President Donald Trump allegedly said during a private meeting on Thursday that he does not want more immigrants from “sh*thole” countries coming into the U.S. Instead of backing down after receiving backlash, however, Trump is doubling down on them by explaining that his top priority is protecting Americans from immigrants from “high crime” countries.

Infowars reported that Trump took to Twitter on Friday morning to explain his comments about Haiti and African nations.

“The so-called bipartisan DACA deal presented yesterday to myself and a group of Republican Senators and Congressmen was a big step backwards,” said Trump. “Wall was not properly funded, Chain & Lottery were made worse and USA would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime countries which are doing badly. I want a merit based system of immigration and people who will help take our country to the next level. I want safety and security for our people.”

“I want to stop the massive inflow of drugs. I want to fund our military, not do a Dem defund because of the Democrats not being interested in life and safety, DACA has now taken a big step backwards,” he continued. “The Dems will threaten “shutdown,” but what they are really doing is shutting down our military, at a time we need it most. Get smart, MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”

 Trump went on to  word “sh*thole,” but acknowledged that “tough language” had been used during the meeting.
