Pete Frates is apologizing to people from Haiti and Uganda over President Donald Trump's remarks condemning "s---hole countries."

Frates, the former Boston College player who inspired the ice bucket challenge in his battle against ALS, tweeted Friday night, apologizing to friends and colleagues from Uganda for the remarks made by Trump, whom Frates called an "a hole" and "a scumbag, racist, Nazi lover."
