Hundreds of Haiti supporters protest near Mar-a-Lago

Hundreds of Haitian Americans and their supporters chose to spend their Martin Luther King Day protesting near Mar-a-Lago, President Trump’s Private Club in Palm Beach, FL., which he was staying at for the holiday weekend. They are protesting his alleged derogatory comments about Haiti and El Salvador. The President supposedly made the remarks during a White House meeting called by the President to discuss Immigration Reform legislation; he also is alleged to have used offensive language to describe African countries adding that he wished more immigrants would come from countries such as Norway.

 

The protesters were chanting, “What do we want? Apology!” or “What do we want? Respect! Protest organizer James Leger said, “We’re going to pray for America and pray for President Trump. People make mistakes. We’re not asking for impeachment. We just want an apology.”
