Trump has recently come under fire for calling Haiti, countries in Africa, and other countries "sh!thole" countries in a closed-door meeting late last week. Many Trump detractors even wondered aloud if the president even knew that Africa is a continent.

Stephen Miller Denies CNN Escorted Him Out, Blasts Network’s ‘Low Journalistic Standards’

White House Senior Policy Adviser Stephen Miller is denying reports that he had to be escorted out of CNN after a contentious interview with network anchor Jake Tapper on Sunday.
