Beatty Statement on Trump's Description of Haiti, El Salvador and African Nations

Today,  in response to President Donald Trump's reported derogatory remark on Haiti, El Salvador and African nations, U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (OH-03) issued the following statement: 

“Donald Trump’s comment describing Haiti, El Salvador and African nations is outright appalling. This kind of inflammatory, hurtful, and divisive language has no place in our society, yet is par for the course for this White House. We need a president who champions civility and diversity, encourages inclusiveness, and understands that America was made great by people from all walks of life. To paraphrase Maya Angelou, ‘in diversity there is beauty and there is strength.’”
