LIKE | COMMENT | SHARE | SUBSCRIBE Sen. Corey Booker (D-NJ) hammered Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on Tuesday over her failure to recall and rebuke President Donald Trump’s declaration that he didn’t want to accept more immigrants from “shithole” African countries. While questioning Nielsen about the DHS’s response to white supremacist hate groups, Booker rant down a litany of all Trump’s past racist remarks and shamed her for claiming she couldn’t recall whether Trump had called African countries “shitholes.” “The commander in chief, in an Oval Office meeting, referring to people from African countries and Haitians with the most vial and vulgar language — that language festers,” Booker said. “When ignorance and bigotry is alive with power, it’s a dangerous force in our country. Your silence and your amnesia is complicity.” Booker also listed off all the hate crimes committed by white nationalists recently — ranging from Dylann Roof’s 2015 massacre at the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston and the white nationalist riots that occurred in Charlottesville, Virginia, last summer — and questioned the president’s commitment to stopping such crimes. “Tens of millions of Americans are hurting right now because of what they’re worried about what happened in this White House,” he said. “That is unacceptable.”
