'If we are poor, it is because we are all graduates of Trump University,' one man said
President Donald Trump reportedly referred to Haiti as a “sh—hole” country, as reported by various outlets. So Conan O’Brien gave the people of Haiti the chance to say some things about Trump.
The TBS late-night host traveled to Haiti for an upcoming episode of Conan that will air this Saturday, Jan. 27. But the network has already shared a few clips from the television event, one of which shows O’Brien standing by the Haitian people as they roast the U.S. president.
“Mr. Trump, please come visit Haiti because every time you leave your country you make America great again,” one man joked.
“I know why President Trump doesn’t like Haiti: We have books!” another bystander cracked.
It also seems like the hypothetical 2020 presidential run for Oprah Winfrey already has a supporter. “I want to send a message of love to the leader of America,” a woman said. “Oprah, we love you!”
Trump denied making the “sh—hole” comment in reference to Haiti, El Salvador, and African countries after he was harshly condemned them. “The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used,” he tweeted. “What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made — a big setback for DACA!”
“If we are poor, it is because we are all graduates of Trump University,” another Haitian man joked in the clip.
Also on his Haiti trip, O’Brien visited the Ecole Nouvelle Zoranje school in Port-au-Prince, where he met with the kids, allowed them to put ribbons in his hair, and went to class with them.
The full segment will air this Saturday at 10 p.m. ET. Watch clips above.
