After comments attributed to President Donald J. Trump caused a major uproar late this week, twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and former Vice President Joe Biden piped up Friday, letting their opinions be known on Twitter.

Thursday, reports emerged that President Trump made remarks about immigrants from certain countries, which he reportedly described as “s–thole countries,” during a meeting that afternoon with a group of lawmakers regarding an immigration reform bill.

The media has played it up, and reports all day have included such headlines as, “Awkward: Trump praises Martin Luther King, Jr. after his racist comments,” from Salon and “Trump supporters react to his derogatory remark, in their own words,” from CNN.

Wading into the deluge of negative comments against the president, Clinton had this to offer: “The anniversary of the devastating earthquake 8 years ago is a day to remember the tragedy, honor the resilient people of Haiti, & affirm America’s commitment to helping our neighbors. Instead, we‘re subjected to Trump’s ignorant, racist views of anyone who doesn’t look like him.”

Biden had his own biting comments, tweeting: “It’s not how a president should speak. It’s not how a president should behave. Most of all, it’s not what a president should believe. We’re better than this.”

For his part, President Trump denies using those words. He said he used “strong language” during the negotiations, but did not refer to other countries in such derogatory terms as those attributed to him. He explained the position he took during the meeting in a Twitter storm, which can be read HERE.
