Haitians rip Trump's ‘s--thole’ remark at Brooklyn quake memorial

 

New York’s Haitian community honored the eighth anniversary of the earthquake that devastated their country Friday — and denounced President Trump’s remark that the island nation was “a shithole.”

The event at Brooklyn Borough Hall was planned as a memorial for the victims of the 2010 catastrophe that killed 230,000 — but it became a rally of about 100 people railing against the President.

“(Trump) is sending a coded message that he wants to return to the good old days, of slavery, the good old days of water hoses, the good old days of German Shepherds biting people fighting for their basic rights,” Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams said.

“It may be called the White House, but this is the country of color.”

Civil rights attorney Norman Siegel urged the crowd to remember Martin Luther King Jr.’s nonviolent fight for change. King’s birthday is Monday.

“He would be nonviolent, but he would win,” Siegel said.
