Win Butler, along with his wife and bandmate, Regine Chassange, the descendant of Haitian immigrants, has something to say about Donald Trump including Haiti on his list of “shithole countries.”
Win, Regine and the rest of the band are deeply involved in with the people of Haiti, having initiated and participated in a long list of humanitarian missions. Much of the group’s Reflektor album bears a Haitian influence.
Naturally, Win has an opinion on the President’s comments.
Trumps comments about Haiti, reflect nothing on the amazing country, and only on his own racism and xenophobia. Haiti is one of the most special and amazing places I’ve been on this earth, and we need more Haitian-Americans.

If you want to feel sad for the human race, read some of the comments to Win’s tweet.
On second thought, don’t. Best not give these people any attention.
