Key Words: MSBC’s Joy Reid told ‘just move to Haiti’ amid furor over Trump’s alleged remarks

A heated exchange between Pastor Mark Burns and talk-show host Joy Reid on her Saturday morning show #AMJOY on MSNBC resulted in the pastor making off-air remarks via Twitter that the host should move to Haiti.

“She’s always been very kind and I think fair to me,” Burns said. “But I think, obviously in the interview that you just saw if you watch Joy, that she should just move to Haiti since she’s more concerned about Haitian immigrants than black Americans here in poverty.”

Check out the video below, which includes Reid’s response and a video excerpt of the Pastor’s remarks via Twitter:

The Pastor’s remarks stem from a contentious interview earlier Saturday with Reid about President Donald Trump’s alleged remarks about “sh-thole” countries. Some present during a discussion about immigration laws contend that Trump’s remarks were references to countries including Haiti and those in Africa.

President Trump has denied that he used vulgar language to refer to immigrants. On Friday, however, Sen. Dick Durbin, an Illinois Democrat who was in the room with Trump during the discussions about allowing immigrants, including Haitians, with special protections to remain in the U.S., said that POTUS did use the term. “He said, ‘Haitians, do we need more Haitians?’” the senator said.

Trump’s administration has threatened to end protected status for a number of immigrants, referred to as “dreamers”, including Haitian immigrants who were displaced after a 2010 earthquake that created massive destruction in that part of the island of Hispaniola.

Burns told Reid that Trump’s America first policy stance means that the U.S. should focus on its own citizens, which he supported.

In any case, the suggestion that the president employed expletives to refer to fellow nations has fueled fresh criticism upon the GOP leader, and fanned debate about racism and protectionism in America.
