Donald Trump Decries Immigration From “Sh*thole Countries”
This should come as no shock to anyone, really.
White House sources revealed to CNN that during a today’s Oval Office meeting regarding immigration that Trump blatantly asked why we would want “all these people from ‘sh*thole countries’ coming here?”
What does he mean by a “sh*thole country?” Places full of Black people, of course.
Today, senators Dick Durbin and Lindsey Graham presented a plan to the Cheeto in charge that would cut the visa lottery in half, and at the urging of the Congressional Black Caucus, grant the rest to underrepresented African nations and countries under Temporary Protective Status, which includes Haiti.
Apparently, as soon as Haiti became the topic of discussion, Trump said “Why do we need more Haitians? Take them out.”
He also wondered aloud why we’d want more people from Africa coming over here, and how come we can’t grant the visas to people from countries like Norway.
Trump’s cronies aren’t even attempting to act like he didn’t say it, either:
Reached for comment about the article, White House spokesperson Raj Shah did not deny the “sh*thole” remark, but instead said in a statement that 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.”
