During a bi-partisan committee meeting on immigration earlier this week, President Trump reportedly made offensive remarks regarding north African nations, suggesting that the U.S. government should crack down on people traveling to America from “sh*thole countries” like those.

It caused widespread backlash in recent days, and though Trump has since denied saying it, at least one democratic lawmaker who was present at the meeting, Sen. Richard Durbin, has confirmed that the president did in fact make those comments.

Raptors president Masai Ujiri, who is originally from Nigeria, offered a powerful rebuke of Trump’s statement, calling into question his leadership of a country that was founded on the principle of being a beacon of hope for people around the world looking for a better life.
