Trump says “Tough Language” Was Used, Didn’t Call “Sh*thole Countries” What They Are #Trump #AmericaFirst

Whether President Trump called places in the world “shit hole countries” or not, the fact is, he is right. Most of the world IS a shit hole, and the only people to blame are the people living there.

So get over it Democrats, most of the world IS a shit hole, whether you like it or not.

In bluntly vulgar language, President Donald Trump questioned Thursday why the U.S. would accept more immigrants from Haiti and “shithole countries” in Africa rather than places like Norway, as he rejected a leftist immigration scam, according to people briefed on the extraordinary Oval Office conversation, reports AP News.

Trump’s contemptuous description of an entire continent startled lawmakers in the meeting and to no surprise, immediately revived feckless Democrat charges that the president is racist. The White House did not deny his remark but issued a statement saying Trump supports immigration policies that welcome “those who can contribute to our society.”

Responding to the furor on Friday, Trump said on Twitter that his language was “tough,” but “this was not the language used.”

Trump later went on to argue: “Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country.”

Referring to a report in the Washington Post, that he said “take them out” in reference to Haitians, Trump said that never happened.

The White House did not immediately respond to questions about the president’s tweets.

Trump’s comments Thursday came as two senators presented details of a bipartisan compromise that would extend protections against deportation for hundreds of thousands of young immigrants — and also strengthen border protections, as Trump has insisted.

The lawmakers had hoped Trump would back their accord, an agreement among six senators evenly split among Republicans and Democrats, ending a monthslong, bitter dispute over protecting the “dreamers.” But the White House later rejected it, plunging the issue back into uncertainty just eight days before a deadline that threatens a government shutdown.

Dick Durbin of Illinois, the Senate’ s No. 2 Democrat, explained that as part of that deal, a lottery for visas that has benefited people from Africa and other nations would be ended, the sources said, though there could be another way for them to apply. Durbin said people who would be allowed to stay in the U.S. included those who had fled here after disasters hit their homes in places such as El Salvador, Guatemala and Haiti.

Trump specifically questioned why the U.S. would want to admit more people from Haiti. As for Africa, he asked why more people from “shithole countries” should be allowed into the U.S., the sources said.

The president suggested that instead, the U.S. should allow more entrants from countries like Norway. Trump met this week with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg.

Asked about the remarks, White House spokesman Raj Shah did not deny them.

“Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people,” he said.
