( CNN) President Trump’s outrageous statement about immigration leaves us stunned — embarrassed for him and for this country.

The President was griping to members of Congress who were in his office to discussed a possible bipartisan immigration compromise. According to sources, he was referring to immigrants from Haiti and Africa. And in cases where it escaped anyone what Haiti and Africa have in common, Trump reportedly suggested that America should bring more immigrants from countries like Norway — one of the world’s whitest, blondest, richest nations.

Just 24 hours earlier, Trump was bragging about what a “phenomenal”job he did where reference is let television cameras into a negotiating meet in the White House, a performance that drew generally, though hardly universally, positive reviews. In typical style, however, we are back to the Trump we’ve come to know, a boy who simply cannot disguise his baser instincts.
