Make America White Again: Haiti, African Nations ‘Shithole’ Countries

Trump raised a stir today by calling Haiti, African nations ‘shithole’ countries. Trump wants immigrants from Norway.

In a meeting with Senators, Trump Calls Haiti, African Nations ‘Shithole’ Countries.

President Donald Trump questioned senators in an Oval Office meeting Thursday on why the U.S. accepts immigrants from “shithole countries” like Haiti, El Salvador and African nations rather than places like Norway, according to three people briefed on the conversation.

Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy of Vermont, who wasn’t in the meeting, in a tweet called the president’s remarks, “Breathtakingly offensive. Worse, it’s ignorant of American ideals.”

The chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, Democratic Representative Cedric Richmond of Louisiana, said the president’s statement “reinforces the concerns that we hear every day, that the President’s slogan Make America Great Again is really code for Make America White Again.’ ”

In the strongest reaction from a Republican, Representative Mia Love of Utah, a child of Haitian immigrants, demanded an apology and said the president’s remarks were "unkind, divisive, elitist, and fly in the face of our nation’s values."

"My parents," Love said, "came from one of those countries but proudly took an oath of allegiance to the United States and took on the responsibilities of everything that being a citizen comes with."

"Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?" Trump said, according to the Post, which quoted two people briefed on the meeting. Trump then suggested the U.S. should instead accept more people from countries like Norway, whose prime minister he met with Wednesday.

Trump was reported in December to have made similarly disparaging comments last year about people who had received U.S. visas in 2017. He said that people from Haiti "all have AIDS" while people from Nigeria would never "go back to their huts," the New York Times said.

No one can accuse Trump of not speaking his mind. Comment away.

    hahaha.. it's all relative. snowflakes will hate the depiction. i have been to many african countries and the depiction is accurate. rather than engaging in more virtue signalling, snowflakes should campaign on a ticket that cuts the defence bduget in half and uses the four hundred billion extra a year, to upgrade the infrastructure of those countries. one thing to note is that the black sub-saharan african countries have a crime rate (e.g. murder rate) that is 90% lower than that in black ghettoes in the US like baltimore/st louis/chicgo et al.

    what snowflakes can't sand is that balcks in the US make more money out of being "victims than they do in work - so they are pretty smart - it is the white snowflakes that are the stupid ones, working for "slave" labor rates, when they could also sit around doing nothing. in any case, all low value/wage rate work can be automated so it won't be a race issue - it will be a "oh the humanity" issue.

    anyone have the latest numbers on the amounts of taxes collected/benefits paid by color and age? perhaps we need to switch to no representation without taxation from the 250 year old "no taxation without representation" maxim.

    Many of our forefathers fought and died to make America a first world country. Progressives want to change all that. If they want to improve the people of third world countries, why can't they take their money and go there and REALLY make a difference?

    This is another Wash. Post story based on two anonymous sources, and there are, quite literally, a lot of people shitting in holes around the world. So there's that. But if anyone was under the illusion that Make America Great Again really means White again hopefully this puts that to rest. Like when white people say "thug" now when they really mean nigger.

    Leave it to the "progressive" (Regressive?) media to turn immigration into a racist issue. As if Mexican, Haitian, Liberian and Norwegian were races?

    Ah, yes, Trump making America Great Again, one expletive at a time. Glad my girls are old enough that they know the word, and just awesome that I get to see it on Nightly News (sarcasm if you can't tell) https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/maven-user-photos/mishtalk/politics/ZTdfW7kWtE2BvBn2iiRO6w/n6_coYKURUiieHcgwB-8lw

    Spent a week in Haiti. The doctor I went to for immunizations said I didn’t need the full list that I gave him because some were “obsolete”. “I’m going to Haiti”, I said. “Oh, OK. Let’s do them all.” Get to Port Au Prince and we’re get our luggage and are looking out the giant glass walls exiting the airport. There are *hundreds* of young men banging on the glass wall, waving, doing anything to get your attention so you’ll let them carry your luggage to a cab so you’ll tip them $5. Driving though Port Au Prince and see a (no exaggeration) two story pile of garbage. Get closer and see something wiggling at the base. Closer still and I see it’s a toddler, no more than 3 years old, rummaging through the garbage with no adult anywhere in sight. Swimming in Jacmel, step on something plastic and pull it up to look at it. It’s an empty plasma bag. I was literally swimming in medical waste. Let’s be honest. Haiti *IS* a shithole.
