Trump blasted for 'shithole' comment about Haiti, Africa

“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” the president said, according to the Washington Post, which cites “two people briefed on the meeting.”
Politicians at the bipartisan Oval Office pow-wow were left flabbergasted by the remark, according to the paper.

Sadly he is not my president either. A statement i have never made before since i came to the US in 1967. I have now reclaimed my Italian citizenship status. In fact i would renounce my American citizenship. Other than the fact that there is still a great deal that is right about America. So, i am sorry Yobbo, not even Donald Trump will pesuade me to join your hatred of all things American society.

People On Twitter Tell Trump No One In Norway Wants To Come To His ‘Shithole Country’

By Sarah Ruiz-Grossman

After President Donald Trump made racist remarks lamenting immigrants coming from “shithole countries” like Haiti and nations in Africa rather than from Norway, people on Twitter, including some actually from Norway, were quick to remark that, for many Norwegians, America may seem to be a bit of a shithole.

Michael J. McDonald
✔ @MMStearnsCastle
@realDonaldTrump no one from Norway wants to come to this shithole country. They have healthcare for all, family leave, free education and real gun control.

Christian Christensen
✔ @ChrChristensen
Of course people from #Norway would love to move to a country where people are far more likely to be shot, live in poverty, get no healthcare because they’re poor, get no paid parental leave or subsidized daycare and see fewer women in political power. #Shithole

@TheMrJayBrown
#Norway:
•Named Happiest Country
•Named Best Country To Live In by UN
•Named Most Prosperous Country
•Free colleges/universities

Norwegians, reading today's news from the States:

"Why in the world would we want to go to that #shithole country?"

Anneliese Bruner @AnnelieseMaria
Replying to @ChrChristensen
Years ago a #Norwegian colleague moved back to #Norway with his American wife because they were ready to start a family and considered the U.S. too violent and dangerous a place to raise children. #shithole

Nick Jack Pappas
✔ @Pappiness
Trump: "Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here? Why not people from Norway?"

Norwegians: "Why would we move to a country with a shithole President?"
Brian Hjelle @Brian_Hjelle
My parents both came from Norway, god rest their souls.
If they were alive today, they would know better.
They'd have stayed in Norway, or maybe have chosen a less SHITHOLE country.
Like Zimbabwe.

jodyseaborn
✔ @jodyseaborn
There might be a reason Norwegians stay in Norway: Norway named the world's happiest country in 2017

Thor Benson
✔ @thor_benson
My family came from Norway, and I can tell you that we Norwegians think Trump is a racist "shithole."

Cricket @WCoastCndn
Replying to @thor_benson @windmillcharger
My family from #Norway ... and who are Conservatives ... think @realDonaldTrump is a #shithole too
Harvey J Kaye

✔ @harveyjkaye
Trump wants more “Nordics” - In late 19thC Norwegians flooded the upper Midwest because their country was not a decent place to be (= shithole?) - And today they would never leave because of their social democracy.

Shannon Watts
✔ @shannonrwatts
Norway: “Hard Pass on visiting your shithole country.”

More like those in Norway nice try no cigar, a president shouldn't use such language towards a continent or a counry in a meeting and remember those that are allies, those serving in civilian govt positions and especially those in the military not to mention he makes it difficlt for American expats and tourists. I have and most of us have command of the English language including vocabulary and time after time he has made his position clear and there is absolutely no defense of the indefensible, I would think that finally fawn on the right with the response of the majority in this nation and the rest of the world that has spoken out.

You are sometimes showing yourself to be Trump's intellectual equal.

He was refering to Haiti and some African nations. They are populated by blacks.
He was glowingly polite about another country inhabited by whites.
What do you deduce from that?

We had a foreign exchange student from Norway in my high school class. When she graduated she returned to Norway.

And that was after seeing how wonderful life was in a small town in the American Midwest!

Now the network news services are calling the Quote as "Alleged" as the group of senators in the meeting do not ALL recall that comment being made, only the Democrats are. Seems a bit too handy now even for the news stations.

Still nothing as to Racist in the comment IF was actually made. The statement of 'Shithole Nations' does not belie any consideration to a person or people just the nation, enter the current discussion on another board where opinion of a government, governing body of such nation is declared against being a shithole. You wish to demean people or persons you state shitasses, worthless !@#$, worthless as !@#$ and so on or you go racist and denigrate against skin color, type of lifestyle etc. This is so far Off Context or intended definition as to appear childish. Every Liberal I am aware of takes every opportunity to read into statements of Conservatives to the level of stupidity to achieve some feeling of better than thou or stronger empathy or some self expressed patting of the back as to "see what I have delivered" Or Found or interpreted. All too much I am so much better than they are crap from hypocritical ideology.

About 96 percent of Norway is white and my common sense tells me he didn't mean the Middle Easterners or blacks, this is hardly the a first time either and calling someone a racist is an extreme term I do not take lightly. Do you think both Graham snd Durbin are liars? What do you think of the I don't recall braci?

No I am not, the news is carrying this ever higher and harder as Durbin is a lying turd and anyone that has dealt with him understands. If this is his 'Interpretation' of a statement made then HE is the one that needs consider legal counsel as well some sort of mental treatment.

Cooter you have said something that I both agree with and which reflect on the term "fake news" ... something that Trump promotes, yet never really condemns with specific examples: "Seems a bit too handy now even for the news stations." Where people in Middle know the local newspersons, and it is not their intent to mislead their communities with fake news ... that is swamp that Pres.
Trumphas been TRYING TO DRAIN, for about one year.

Re: Your president doesn't want immigrants from shitholes.


Sorry it comes from the WP.

"The president had no respect for Haiti. He could see as well as anyone following the news that the country was a basket case — racked by political unrest, filthy, incapable of handling its own affairs. There was no doubt his opinion of the black republic was informed by his blatant racism, which included praising members of the Ku Klux Klan. He had criticized his predecessors’ foreign wars while running for office. But in the White House, he realized he was willing to flex the country’s muscles abroad, as long as the mission fit his motto: “America first.”
"Taking Haiti was a U.S. priority, he decided. The United States would invade.
"That president was Woodrow Wilson. The year was 1915. And if that was the beginning of a story you’ve never heard before, you aren’t alone.
"Since news broke that Wilson’s unwitting heir, President Trump, called Haiti — along with El Salvador and seemingly all 54 nations in Africa — “shithole countries,” the president’s defenders made it clear not only that they do not know Haiti’s history but also that they’re unaware of their own. As soon as they heard his comments, Trump’s partisans went defensive, claiming that while Trump might have been rude, he was right.
"Fox News regular Tomi Lahren tweeted: “If they aren’t shithole countries, why don’t their citizens stay there?”
“Trump should ‘vehemently condemn’ the Haitian government for running a shithole country,” wrote Will Chamberlain, one of the organizers of last year’s inaugural “DeploraBall.”
"Some on the right particularly applauded a segment on CNN in which National Review editor Rich Lowry asked political commentator Joan Walsh whether she would “rather live in Norway or Haiti.” It was a reference to Trump’s reported wish that the United States ring in more Nordic immigrants instead of those from Latin America or Africa. Walsh refused to answer, noting she’d never visited either country. Tucker Carlson accused her of dishonesty. “Those places are dangerous, they’re dirty, they’re corrupt and they’re poor,” the Fox News host said, with an indignation Wilson would have admired. “Why can’t you say that?”
"Trump’s supporters on cable news appear to believe that they, and he, are brave tellers of unvarnished truths others are too timid or politically correct to say out loud. (Never mind that Trump is a notorious, if not pathological, liar — or that, hours later, he tried weakly to walk back the “shithole” remark after his favorite TV show told him to.)
"But in reality, they don’t know many truths at all. To rail against poverty in countries such as Haiti and argue that it’s some naturally occurring, objective reality ignores why that poverty exists and what the United States’s role has been in creating it. And ignoring that means not only making bad and hateful decisions today but risks repeating the errors of the past....
"So in light of all that history, to be convinced that Haiti just happens to be a failed “shithole” where no one would want to live, you’d have to know nothing about how Haitians view their country and themselves. You’d have to know nothing about the destructive U.S. trade policies that continued past the end of the dictatorship, destroying trade protections and, with them, local industries and agriculture. You’d have to not know about the CIA’s role in the 1991 coup that overthrew President Jean-Bertrand Aristide, or the U.S. invasions in 1994 and 2004. You’d have to know nothing about why the United States sponsored and took the leading role in paying for a U.N. “stabilization mission” that did little but keep a few, often unpopular, presidents in power and kill at least 10,000 people by introducing cholera to Haiti for the first time. And you’d have to not understand the U.S. role in the shambolic response to the Jan. 12, 2010, earthquake — which was a mess, but possibly not in the way that you think.
"Haiti is indeed a difficult place to live for many of the people who live there. Poverty is rampant. There is no good sanitation system, in part because the same international system that introduced cholera in 2010 steadfastly refuses to meet its promises to pay to clean it up. (Before the outbreak, the United States withheld funds to pay for water and sanitation infrastructure for more than 10 years for purely political reasons.) After centuries of exploitation and abuse, the best hope for many Haitians is to move away — and suddenly encountering infrastructure and opportunities, they thrive. For many migrants, the ultimate goal is to earn enough money to retire, build a home in Haiti and go back...."

Lindsay Graham is not my type of Republican. And Dick Durbin is certainly not my type of Democrat. However, i am far more likely to believe them as opposed to Tom Cotten and David Perdue. And quite frankly the “shithole country” comments have Donald Trump’s name written all over them.
