CNN's Philip Mudd Blasts Trump on Immigrant Comments

CNN counterterrorism analyst Philip Mudd slammed President Donald Trump Thursday as for his remarks attacking protections for immigrants from "s**thole" countries.

"The president is growing this country on the backbone of bigotry that comes from when I saw my family called spics," Mudd, who worked at the CIA, told Wolf Blitzer on CNN.

The Washington Post, citing two unnamed sources briefed on the meeting, reported President Trump grew frustrated with lawmakers in a meeting about immigration as they floated the idea of restoring protections for immigrants from Africa, El Salvador, and Haiti.

"Why are we having all these people from s**thole countries come here?" Trump said, according to the Post, referring to African countries and Haiti.

In blasting Trump, Mudd began by telling Blitzer: Close your ears, Wolf. I'm going to give you a reaction.

"I'm a proud s**tholer," Mudd said. "We were regarded as people from s**thole countries.

"We used to call them 'slant eyes' — and now, they're a backbone of this country.

"In the 1940s, we called people 'traitors' because they came from a s**thole country called Japan," he continued. "We called people 'spics' and 'wetbacks.'

"The president is growing this country on the backbone of bigotry that comes from when I saw my family called spics," Mudd said. "We should be ashamed.

"We've learned way too many lessons — and history will tell you, if you don't read history, you'll repeat them.

"That's what our president did for us today," Mudd told Blitzer. "I am not proud."
