The real problem here is that Trump is failing to dress unpleasant truths in the socially-required language of equivocation and blame-deflection. That's pretty much an unforgivable sin these days.
One comment I heard in the past few days is that Haitian refugees are often better educated than Americans. Of course that probably isn't so about the poorest Haitians, but it was a statement by someone who knows Haiti and the Haitians who have come to this country. You would think that a "very smart" man like Donald J. Trump might respect that. But no.
