President Trump, Racism and the Immigration Debate

For the past week, journalists and politicians have been consumed with one question: Did President Trump use vulgar, racist language to describe Haiti and nations in Africa?

We may never know exactly what words Trump used during that meeting with lawmakers in Washington on Jan. 11. The president allegedly called a group of poor nations "[expletive] countries" during a discussion about DACA, a program that protects the children of illegal immigrants.

When news of Trump's alleged comment spread, Republican senator Lindsey Graham told reporters he definitely heard Trump say the offending word. Senators Tom Cotton of Arkansas and David Perdue of Georgia denied that Trump said it. Illinois Democrat Dick Durbin insisted otherwise, and called the comment "hate-filled, vile and racist."

In his defense, Trump tweeted: "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used." But an international outcry followed. Ambassadors and presidents denounced the word as insensitive and degrading. Trump took a beating, and our nation became even more polarized.

Many Christians have rushed to President Trump's defense, saying they are sure he didn't say the word. Others seem ready to condemn Trump whether he said it or not.

My main concern in this debate is not whether the leader of the free world uttered a word I can't use in this magazine. I can't prove whether the president said it. read more
