Colville also expressed concern for previous remarks by Trump that had what he called racial undertones, including campaign events in which the then-candidate had called Mexican immigrants criminals and rapists, and Trump's response a year ago to a white supremacist march saying that "both sides" deserved blame. Later in the morning (Jan. 12), he deflected the blame, tweeting: "Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country".
