President Donald Trump reportedly grew enraged at a June meeting over the amount of visas awarded to travelers from certain countries, grumbling that 15,000 Haitians who entered the United States in the preceding months "all have AIDS" and that the 40,000 Nigerian visitors would never "go back to their huts" in Africa.

"General Kelly, General McMaster, Secretary Tillerson, Secretary Nielsen and all other senior staff actually in the meeting deny these outrageous claims", said Sanders. But the Times story notes that two anonymous officials who served as sources for the article deemed the comments so noteworthy at the time that they told others.

Other top administration officials who attended the June meeting, such as then-Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, attempted to explain to Trump that numerous visa holders were merely traveling to the USA for short visits before returning to their home countries.

NYT published accounts of some administration officials who were present at a meeting about the administration's immigration policy in June.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, denied on Saturday morning that Mr. Trump had made derogatory statements about immigrants during the meeting.

The report cites "six officials who attended or were briefed about the meeting", and advises that Trump read aloud from a document given to him by known-racist Stephen Miller.

The report comes on the heels of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals' ruling Friday that Trump's travel ban, the third he has proposed since becoming president, is illegal. If he was so bad at his job, maybe he should stop issuing visas altogether, Mr. Tillerson fired back.

Mr Trump has tried to crack down on immigration into the USA, citing terrorism fears, but has been stymied by the courts.

"He's basically saying, 'You people of color coming to America seeking the American dream are a threat to the white people.' He's come into office with an aggressive strategy of trying to reverse the demographic changes underway in America", explained Frank Sharry, the executive director of America's Voice.
