    Trump Alarms Lawmakers With Disparaging Words for Haiti and Africa

    By JULIE HIRSCHFELD DAVIS and SHERYL GAY STOLBERGJAN. 11, 2018


    WASHINGTON — President Trump on Thursday balked at an immigration deal that would include protections for people from Haiti and African countries, demanding to know at a White House meeting why he should accept immigrants from “shithole countries” rather than people from places like Norway, according to people with direct knowledge of the conversation.
    Mr. Trump’s remarks left members of Congress attending the meeting in the Cabinet Room alarmed and mystified. They were there discussing an emerging bipartisan deal to give legal status to immigrants illegally brought to the United States as children, the people said, speaking on condition of anonymity without authorization to discuss the explosive proceedings of the private meeting.
    When Mr. Trump heard that Haitians were among those who would benefit, he asked if they could be left out of the plan, according to the people familiar with the conversation, asking, “Why do we want people from Haiti here?”


    The comments were reminiscent of ones the president made last year in an Oval Office meeting with Cabinet officials and administration aides, where he complained about admitting Haitians to the country, saying that they all had AIDS, as well as Nigerians, who he said would never go back to their “huts,” according to officials who heard the statements in person or were briefed on the remarks by people who did. The White House vehemently denied last month that Mr. Trump made those remarks.
    In a written statement on Thursday, Raj Shah, the White House deputy press secretary, did not deny the account or directly address Mr. Trump’s comments during the meeting.

    “Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people,” Mr. Shah said. “Like other nations that have merit-based immigration, President Trump is fighting for permanent solutions that make our country stronger by welcoming those who can contribute to our society, grow our economy and assimilate into our great nation.”

    The episode, first reported by The Washington Post, unfolded as Mr. Trump was hosting a meeting with Senator Lindsey Graham, Republican of South Carolina, and Richard J. Durbin, Democrat of Illinois, who are working to codify the protections in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, the Obama-era initiative that provided temporary work permits and reprieves from deportation to immigrants brought to the United States as children by their parents. Representative Kevin McCarthy, Republican of California and the majority leader; Senator David Perdue, Republican of Georgia; Senator Tom Cotton, Republican of Arkansas; and Representative Robert W. Goodlatte, Republican of Virginia and the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, were also there.


    The plan would also include some $2.7 billion for border security and a grant of protected status for the parents of the so-called Dreamers, who would be barred from sponsoring their parents for citizenship.
    Mr. Trump grew angry as the group detailed another aspect of the deal — a move to end the diversity visa lottery program and use some of the 50,000 visas to protect vulnerable populations who have been living in the United States under so-called Temporary Protected Status. That was when he asked about Haiti.
    When the discussion turned to African nations, the people with knowledge of the conversation added, Mr. Trump asked why he would want “all these people from shithole countries,” adding that the United States should admit more people from places like Norway.
    Correction: January 11, 2018
    A previous version of this article included an incorrect figure for the spending proposed on border security under a bipartisan immigration deal. The proposal includes $2.7 billion in border security spending, not $2.7 million.

    Those countries are shit holes. If they weren't shit holes, people wouldn't leave them to come to the U.S. It's great someone points it out and is honest.

    408 people left Norway last year for the U.S.
    23K left El Salvador last year for the U.S.

    I think it's clear by that data, Norway is nicer than El Salvador.

    democrats are offended by that because they live in shitholes too (of course, they get offended by everything, fucking cunts)

    Trump's thinking "we have enough leeches already, we need more productive people". While the democrats just want to grow the welfare rolls to give themselves more democratic voters
    "The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter". "A rising tide raises all boats". "MAGA"

    That’s the funny part about all this. The real shitholes are cities where dimocraps have ruled.

    If you ever went to a cocktail party at The NY Times offices, the amount of condescension and sneering you’d hear about the “rednecks, hillbillies, inbreds” and whatever else they label flyover country residents would be repetitive and unbearable.

    Nobody is “alarmed” about anything. As had been pointed out, if these other countries are so wonderful...why do it’s residents want to leave and come here?

    If Trump didn't say it he should have. Nothing pisses off liberals more than someone telling it like it is.

    Liberals can prove Africa isn't a shithole and move there. They won't. They are the ones who said they were going to Canada and Europe if Trump was elected. What!!! Why not Mexico, Africa or the Middle East? We know the answer

    Liberals: "We cant kick out illegals, their countries arent safe and there is no opportunity for them, they came to the US for a better life"

    Also Liberals: "Those countries arent shitholes, it is racist to say anything negative about them!! YOU ARE RACIST!!!!"

    WTF???!!!

    Lol, you morons live in your own little cocoon. "Down in flames," how fitting that was posted by the idiot who claimed Bannon didn't rip Twittler, and that Moore prosecuted KKK murders in the early 1960s. This story isn't a big deal at ALL, lol, it has no legs whatsoever. Actually, the following article seems to indicate otherwise. I'm curious, have any Republicans come straight out and said that Durbin is lying? If not, why is that?

    Members of Both Parties Criticize Trump’s Vulgar Immigration Remark

    After White House initially doesn’t deny accounts, Trump tweets early Friday that he didn’t say it

    Members of both parties roundly criticized President Donald Trump after the Washington Post reported he called Haiti and African countries “shithole countries.”
    The White House did not initially deny that Trump made the remarks in a bipartisan meeting about immigration.
    But Friday morning, after the controversy had brewed through the night, the president tweeted that he didn’t use those words.
