Joy Reid tried to take on Pastor Mark Burns and failed pretty epically after his response put her right in her place!
“The fact is there are many of those countries like Haiti who are in destitute. They’re in the worst situations because of governments that are not taking care of their own people. Now we’re talking about people leaving their own country and coming to America. When in reality, President Trump clearly ran on a ‘Make America Great Again’ policy, which is why he won.”
After a constant back and forth, Reid eventually said, “You’re actually wasting my time when you talk over me.” He responded, “Joy, you’re wasting my time when you’re not talking about Americans.” Then Reid said, “Oh, well then if I’m wasting your time, then goodbye,” and cut his mic and video feeds off.
Pastor Burns wasn’t done! After the interview he took the rest of his argument to Twitter:
“If you’re so concerned about the Haitians, then you should move to Haiti and donate your checks to those families who are in need.”

All this based on what Trump allegedly said about countries like Haiti — a statement he adamantly denies.
President Trump took to Twitter to defend himself, saying “The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used. What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made – a big setback for DACA!”
And later following it up: “Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country. Never said “take them out.” Made up by Dems. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians. Probably should record future meetings – unfortunately, no trust!”
I don’t know about you but I for one believe the President. And well let’s face it… the statement, no matter where it came from, isn’t exactly untrue.
