President Donald Trump is under heavy fire after allegedly making candid comments during an immigration meeting at the White House Thursday, calling countries like Haiti and many in Africa "sh*tholes."
“Why are we having all these people from sh**hole countries come here?” Trump said, according to these people, referring to African countries and Haiti.
He then suggested that the United States should instead bring more people from countries like Norway, whose prime minister he met Wednesday.
Trump denies he used that exact terminology but Democrat Senator Dick Durbin, who was in the room, claims the word was used multiple times.
Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country. Never said “take them out.” Made up by Dems. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians. Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!
"The exact word used by the President, not once but repeatedly," Durbin told reporters Friday morning.
But a West Africa sociologist from Guinea agrees with President Trump.
From Yahoo News:
"President Donald Trump is absolutely right. Africa is a continent of shit," says Mamady Traore, a 30-year-old sociologist in the West African nation of Guinea.
"When you have heads of state who mess with the constitutions to perpetuate their power. When you have rebel factions that kill children, disembowel women as saints, who mutilate innocent civilians. Frankly, it must be said that it's crap."
Fox News' Tucker Carlson is also tamping down the outrage.
“So if you say Norway is a better place to live and Haiti is kind of a hole, well anyone who’s been to those countries or has lived in them would agree. But we’re jumping up and down, ‘Oh, you can’t say that.’ Why can’t you say that?” Carlson asked following amid bipartisan criticism of Trump’s remarks.
Meanwhile, the White House rejected a proposal from Capitol Hill on DACA and the debate over comprehensive immigration reform continues.
How the Clinton Foundation Got Rich off Poor Haitians
By DINESH D'SOUZA
It filtered money through Haiti and back to itself.
EDITOR’S NOTE: The following article is excerpted from Dinesh D’Souza’s new book, Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party.
In January 2015 a group of Haitians surrounded the New York offices of the Clinton Foundation. They chanted slogans, accusing Bill and Hillary Clinton of having robbed them of “billions of dollars.”
Two months later, the Haitians were at it again, accusing the Clintons of duplicity, malfeasance, and theft.
And in May 2015, they were back, this time outside New York’s Cipriani, where Bill Clinton received an award and collected a $500,000 check for his foundation.
“Clinton, where’s the money?” the Haitian signs read.
“In whose pockets?” Said Dhoud Andre of the Commission Against Dictatorship, “We are telling the world of the crimes that Bill and Hillary Clinton are responsible for in Haiti.”
Top 10 Shi*holes Nobody Wants to Visit
BY MEGAN FOX
Unnamed sources are once again claiming president Trump said outrageous things, including calling Haiti and parts of Africa "shi*holes." No one is sure this actually happened, but it sounds true, so the Washington Postran with it.
But it brings up an interesting point.
Are we allowed to point out that there are places in the world that are not ideal, or are we pretending all countries are equal?
This seems demonstrably ridiculous, yet the left is acting super-offended at the suggestion that some countries are shi*hole-ish.
This doesn't explain why the elite don't vacation in Haiti and Cape Town.
The following is my list of shi*holes I never want to visit, in no particular order.
A quick search of Haitian vacations found that a person could have a full week in Haiti for $600, airfare included. If that isn't a screaming red flag, I don't know what is. The reason it's so cheap is that you have a high likelihood of never returning. If you don't get murdered, you will probably get a disease.
Major infectious diseases: degree of risk: very high
Food or waterborne diseases: bacterial and protozoal diarrhea, hepatitis A and E, and typhoid fever
Vectorborne diseases: dengue fever and malaria
Haiti pretty much shows up in the dictionary under "shi*hole."
2. Anywhere ending in "-stan" (or Iran)
Pakistan, Afghanistan, Turkmenistan, and all the other stans are not for me. If you don't get stoned to death by the modesty police, you get dragged away in the middle of the night by secret police for some offense against whatever shi*head is running the shi*hole. No thanks. I'll stay out of the stans.
Children are starving, people are eating trash and zoo animals to stay alive, and it's all because of the grand fantasies of the left put into practice: Socialism!
It works every time, if by every time you mean people starve and die.
Then yes, it works.
So we are supposed to believe that socialism is kind and wonderful.
Yet the countries using it are shi*holes full of suffering.
I don't know about you, but I sure don't want to import that here.
We don't need more people who think socialism is a good idea.
Instead, let's send our socialists to Venezuela, where they've perfected socialism.
They'll get used to a life of prostitution and want in no time, as the Guardian details:
Hunger is gnawing at Venezuela, where a government that claims to rule for the poorest has left most of its 31 million people short of food, many desperately so.
As night falls over Caracas, and most of the city’s residents lock their doors against its ever more violent streets, Adriana Velásquez gets ready for work, heading out into an uncertain darkness as she has done since hunger forced her into the only job she could find at 14.
She was introduced to her brothel madam by a friend more than two years ago...
If a place where children have to turn tricks to survive isn't a shi*hole, what is?
Yes, I know it's not a country. I'm still not going there. Wild horses or even Wild Turkey couldn't drag me into Detroit.
I drove through it once with the gas pedal to the floor and I shall never do it again.
Coincidentally, all the American shi*holes on this list are run by Democrats.
As a matter of fact, Detroit is a shi*hole.
8. New Orleans
If you can avoid the puke, I hear it's fun during festivals and the food is good, but what kind of shi*hole doesn't fix a levee they've been told hundreds of times was going to fail, leading to the deaths of its citizens and the destruction of countless homes?
A Democrat shi*hole, that's what kind! And, wait for it... the levees still aren't fixed!
The rebuilt New Orleans area hurricane levee system remains inadequate to protect the heart of the nation's 45 th largest metropolitan area from another Hurricane Katrina or larger storm, nationally-known engineers and scientists said almost a decade after the 2005 storm.
But don't worry, because communities in New Orleans are focused on important things like "Transgender Awareness Week." The levees can wait.
It is important to note that there aren't any Republicans running New Orleans.
Everyone I've ever known who visited India got violently ill and lost twenty pounds before they got home.
No one I know who has been there made a return trip.
The keywords that stood out from their descriptions were, "hellish, dehydration, pain, suffering, shi* everywhere, rancid, poverty, death."
These are not words that I want to use when I'm on vacation.
Every time I hear the line "Thank You India" by Alanis Morisette, I picture my friends doubled over puking in a ditch with dirty animals waiting to lap it up.
10. Anywhere in Africa where you have to walk somewhere to get water
Whether it's because of warlords or poor infrastructure, water is a basic need. Any place that doesn't have it readily available is going to be a diseased shi*hole.
Obviously, the people suffering in these shi*holes are not to be disparaged or trod upon.
On the contrary, I support exporting our technology and philosophy of freedom and prosperity to every corner of the earth.
I also support missions to help relieve the suffering of people born in shi*holes.
But let's not pretend there aren't shi*holes, or allow Democrats to turn this whole country into a shi*hole no one wants to live in.
