Pastor Blasts Trump's 'Shithole' Feedback In Entrance Of Mike Pence

Time flies US President Donald Trump entered office after shattering conventions with his bombastic style

A pastor in Maryland on Sunday addressed President Donald Trump's reported use of a derogatory word to describe several nations during his sermon attended by Vice President Mike Pence, the New York Daily News reports.

According to the pastor, a number of members in his congregation are of African or Haitian descent.

"I stand today as your pastor to vehemently denounce and reject such characterizations of the nation's (inaudible) and of our brothers and sisters in Haiti and I further say whoever made such a statement and whoever used such a visceral and disrespectful, dehumanizing adjective to characterize the nations of Africa", Watson said.

According to WUSA, "The Vice President reportedly became visibly red-faced at times throughout the speech".

"It is alleged that a hurtful, dehumanizing, visceral, guttural, ugly adjective that I can not repeat in church was allegedly used to characterize some of the nations of Africa.", he said of the president's remarks. Pence's office denied that in an email to The Associated Press. Trump asked the reporters without getting into the specifics of what he may or may not have said.

Trump has faced intense criticism from both sides of the aisle for his comments about the "shithole countries" during an Oval Office meeting on immigration.

Watch Pastor Dr. Maurice Watson's powerful sermon in the video above.

Trump made the denial as he arrived for dinner with House majority leader Kevin McCarthy at his Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Fla. I think the best way to honour Dr King's legacy is to speak up for and stand up for the values for which he spoke and stood. Pence and his wife Karen were invited to the historically black church which was founded soon after the Emancipation Proclamation.

The vice president probably figured he was in a safe space Sunday, in the pews for worship services at the Metropolitan Baptist Church in Largo, Maryland.
