Fox News' Geraldo Rivera called on President Trump to apologize for the “shithole countries” remark he reportedly made during an immigration meeting with lawmakers last week.
“@realDonaldTrump last week I told you on phone that I love you like a brother,” Rivera tweeted Saturday afternoon.
The Fox News employee penned a follow-up tweet, calling on the president to “take this opportunity” to “reach out and make your Administration more inclusive.”
Take this opportunity @realDonaldTrump to reach out and make your Administration more inclusive; make it reflect the wonderful mosaic that comprises the nation you are privileged to lead— Geraldo Rivera (@GeraldoRivera) January 13, 2018
Rivera is one of many Republicans to call on the president to apologize after it was reported he made offensive statements about Haiti and African nations, including a reference to "shithole countries,"
