When Donald Trump visited Little Haiti during the 2016 presidential campaign, he told the Haitian-American community: "I really want to be your biggest champion."

Minutes later, he was calling Haiti a shithole.

In Bob Woodward's new book released on Tuesday, "Fear: Trump in the White House," the veteran reporter wrote that Trump used the vulgarity to describe Haiti after a campaign stop in Little Haiti.

"The idea of 'shithole countries' was not a new one for Trump," Woodward wrote. "During the 2016 campaign, Trump had visited Little Haiti in Miami. Former Haitian leaders had come to the microphones and accused the Clintons of corruption and stealing from Haiti."

"After the event, in private, Trump seemed down. 'I really felt for these people. They come from such a shithole.'"
