Sean Penn: Donald Trump ‘An Enemy of Mankind’ for ‘Shithole’ Comments
Saturday, 13 January 2018 In a blistering op-ed for Time on Friday, Sean Penn called president Donald Trump “an enemy of mankind” and “an enemy of the state” over reports that Trump called Hait and African nations “shithole countries.”
“The solution to our current divisiveness does not live in the White House. Instead, we will find unity only when we recognize that in our current president we have elected, perhaps for the first time in our history, an enemy of compassion,” Penn wrote. “Indeed, we can be unified not only with each other but with Africa, El Salvador, Haiti, Mexico, the Middle East and beyond if we recognize President Donald Trump is an enemy of Americans, Republicans, Democrats, Independents and every new child born. An enemy of mankind. He is indeed an enemy of the state.”
U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan said on Friday that President Donald Trump's reported comments on African nations and Haiti at Thursday's bipartisan immigration meeting were 'unfortunate' and 'unhelpful'. Rough Cut (no reporter narration).
