Omarosa Manigault Tweets Confirmation That President Called African Nations 'S--tholes'

President Donald Trump was recently accused of calling some countries 's--tholes', and it stirred up a firestorm. When the President of Nigeria was asked how he felt about the U.S. President's comments, he responded with a very diplomatic answer: he wasn't there, so he doesn't know if the rumors are true.

A former Trump adviser jumped into the conversation on Twitter to confirm that it is.

Omarosa Manigualt tweeted that President Trump did indeed call certain African nations 's--thole countries'. The former White House aide directed the tweet at Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari.

The whole debacle started behind closed doors in a meeting with lawmakers about immigration. During the meeting, in which lawmakers were attempting to achieve a bipartisan immigration deal, President Trump allegedly said, "Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?"

He was referring to countries like El Salvador, Haiti and certain African nations.

Trump then questioned why people from European countries, like Norway, don't immigrate to America.

The comments were leaked, and the president never denied making them. A fury rose, particularly from the left, over the derogatory term and many liberal lawmakers claimed such comments are proof of Trump's racism and xenophobia.

At the time, Nigeria put out a statement saying that, if the comments were true, they were 'deeply hurtful, offensive and unacceptable'.

Buhari was asked about the comments recently during a press conference with the President. He responded, “I’m not sure about the validity or whether that allegation against the president was true or not. So the best thing for me is to keep quiet.”

Trump added, "We didn’t discuss it... You do have some countries that are in very bad shape and very tough places to live in. But we didn’t discuss it because the president knows me and he knows where I’m coming from and I appreciate that. We did not discuss it."

Manigault, who had appeared on Trump's former reality show, 'The Apprentice', was an original member of Trump's administration, but was fired in December for unknown reasons. Since then, the reality star has been very critical of her former boss. She tells ABC's 'Good Morning America' in an interview,

“As the only African American woman in this White House as a senior staff and assistant to the President, I have seen things that have made me uncomfortable, that have upset me, that have affected me deeply and emotionally.”

When she appeared on the past season of 'Celebrity Big Brother', she told her fellow housemates that things are worse than they could possibly imagine with Trump in office.

"President @MBuhari FYI he said it. #Naija," she tweeted in response to the Nigerian president's comments.
