Jerushah Armfield, one of the granddaughters of renowned evangelist Billy Graham, has argued that President Donald Trump has failed to repent and apologize for his “dehumanizing” remarks on Haiti and other poverty-stricken countries.
“In order to forgive somebody, that individual needs to repent and apologize. And I don’t think America has seen that from our president in any scenario,” Armfield said on CNN’s “Erin Burnett OutFront” on Friday evening.
The author and pastor’s wife in South Carolina took issue with the context around Trump recently describing certain nations as “s***hole” countries, though the president has denied using that specific word.
“I think a lot of times people seem to be focusing on the language that he used, which really wasn’t the issue,” Armfield continued.
“I think it was the context of what he said, around the language that he used. I think it was the disheartening, dehumanizing comments that were said around the word.”
Trump allegedly made the remark during an Oval Office discussion on immigration earlier this month, when sources claim he said: “Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?” in reference to Haiti, El Salvador and African nations.
