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.

The USA had previously labeled Eastern and Southern Europe as shitholes and cut back on the immigration of undesirables from this regions. See the Immigration Act of 1924. This is exactly what the USA stands for, remarks by ignorant liberals aside.

Sechel, it is about CULTURE. East Asians, East Indians and a big portion of the Jews that are in this country came from shithole countries. They busted their hind ends to earn the money to start businesses and get good educations. They all believe in hard work and study as the road to success All the aforementioned groups earn above the white median. I'm glad they are here, producing well above average. I believe that a rising tide lifts all boats and that we are all better off that they are here. What we don't need are hoards of illiterate, unskilled people that are willing to subsist at the public teat.

“No country run by dark people have ever amounted to anything but a Sh#$hole!”

Neither has any country “ran” by anyone, of any color, ever. We’re all Sh#$hole!s now. Playing favorites, serve no other purpose, than flaunting how uncritically one has fallen for the indoctrination machine in one’s own particular Sh#$hole!.

@CzarChasm-Reigns no you didn't see him say it on NBC. There were no videos of it happening and the people who say he said it weren't even at the meeting. If you're going to make a comment at least have your facts straight.

1) Democrats ahve spent more than a year claiming Trump colluded with Putin to win the presidency, yet they cant provide a shred of proof that this was true. Now they are going bananas claiming Trump used inappropriate language based upon anonymous third party attributions. There is no video or recordings and Trump denies it. Since democrats frequently lie, cheat and slander maybe this shouldn't be treated as gospel.

2) Trump is objecting to the diversity lottery which takes in people with no regard for their abilities, skills, criminality, health or anything else all because making new citizens from weird and unusual locations is somehow supposed to benefit the country. He wants people who are solvent, capable, la-abiding and English speaking who have a desire to live as self-supporting free people, not welfare leaches. Don't see anything wrong with that. The diversity lottery privileges people who come from backward, corrupt and impoverished countries who cannot qualify based upon merit. It seems very sensible to ask why we want to do this, why privilege people from deplorable countries (to use Hillary, rather than LBJ speak)?

wonder if trump ever sat in on any of his companies harassment sessions

@SweetKenny, my comment has been removed. I was not trying to spread fake news. I actually thought I did SEE Trump say it, but upon review of the video, Trump was talking about other things. I was eating dinner, saw "shithole countries" in quotes onscreen, and must have assumed they were going to tape to prove their point. White House didn't deny it. Trump doesn't know what he is saying half the time anyway. Too bad King Chaos has no regard for facts, or anyone, but himself.

The West, including Canada and America, is not and never was intended to be, a place for "all races and nations". To claim that it is, or was, is a direct attack on the identity, legitimacy, and existence of the Western people.

Is there a non-White majority area that you would like to live in?? If so, why aren't you there? IF not, why don't you admit Whites have racial interests and rights.
1.White people exist. 2. White people have the RIGHT to exist. 3. White people have the RIGHT to exist AS White people in White Communities and Nations.

God Bless President Trump

It was ok to come from a shithole country when there was no instant welfare, medicaid and foodstamps. It is not ok now.......

The USA is now a WELFARE STATE.

@liberaldisdain

No actually. It wasn't even okay then.

People forget - or are never taught - that even right after the founding and continuing into the first part of the 20th century there were restrictions on who could immigrate into the US. We didn't just open the floodgates and allow anyone in. Many were rejected and sent packing. Those that were not were marked with a tag. Which is where the old saying "do I have a tag on my lapel saying I just got off a boat?" came from. It impled that the one using the phrase thought the person to whom they were speaking assumed them stupid or ignorant.

Immigration into the US was tightly controlled until recently - as in the past 20 years or so.

Illinois democrat Durban was the only democrat at the meeting and it is he who claims the nasty language from Trump. Trump and the others at the meeting deny it. Durban has been caught making up similar phony quotes in the past. Democrats will do anything to make Donald look bad; they are obviously desperate, and they can always count on some help from some RINOs.

Mish, you sure attract an interesting crowd. Not sure I've seen anything like it in 15 years of global economic trend analysis.

western democracies have had difficulty integrating muslim immigrants, this country has enough social challenges without putting on that hair shirt too. The Obama admin was in love with sub saharan muslim immigrants, time to try something different. How about a total immigrant freeze for the rest of Trumps term!

Do a comparative survey of living conditions in the countries Trump told the truth about. Sometimes 'The Truth' is not politically correct (no matter how much virtue signalling it generates.)

Turns out to not have been an accurate characterization of what Trump said. Wow. What a shock. NOT.

There are plenty of S@&tHoles in this country. The street in Buffalo, New York I grew up on in the 50s is now a s&%tHole!

Do we see white people on waiting lists to get into non white countries? South Africa, for instance?
