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
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.
Trump complains about allowing immigrants from 'shithole' countries
As he rejected a bipartisan compromise to resolve the standoff over
so-called Dreamers, President Trump asked participants in an Oval Office
meeting Thursday why the United States should accept immigrants from
“shithole countries” in Africa, Central America and the Caribbean,
according to two people briefed on the meeting.
“What do we want Haitians here for?” the president asked, according to
the people briefed. “Why do we want all these people from Africa here?
Why do we want all these people from shithole countries?"
The president added: "We should have people from places like Norway."
Let's see how that shithead in a shithole Bit of Nothingness tries to
defend this one.
