With President Trump in the White House, it’s a love-hate deal, as many Americans love the way the POTUS behaves and talks, while others abhor his perceived “rude” style. Today’s story is about the Donald’s alleged response to the GANG OF 6 immigration plan, a response which made liberals’ jaws to hit the floor as he blew a hole bigger than that in the ozone layer through political correctness.
As per a Washington Post report, President Trump has said on Thursday:
“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?”
The Donald’s blunt response to lawmakers came as he questioned (during an Oval Office meeting on the immigration bill) the reason for which visa protections should be extended (after the end of the Diversity Visa program) for immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and various African countries. The WaPo report is based on anonymous sources, as usual. However, WaPo admitted that their sources did not attend the respective meeting, hence you should take this story with a big grain of salt, especially considering the source.
President Trump allegedly added that he’d like “more people from countries like Norway, whose prime minister he met Wednesday.”
Social media had a field day:
Okay, yes — Trump shouldn’t call them “shithole countries.” A little respect is in order. They are shithole nations.

I use the phrase “shithole countries” pretty much every time I talk about immigration irl. Greatest prez.

Principal Deputy White House Press Secretary Raj Shah has made an official statement on the immigration issue:
“The President will only accept an immigration deal that adequately addresses the visa lottery system and chain migration – two programs that hurt our economy and allow terrorists into our country,”
All things aside, keep in mind that it’s The Washington Post, and the usual fake news’ “unnamed sources”. The Post has zero credibility, having thrown away any it once had on the orgy of reactionary Trump hate that has rendered all of the mainstream media into laughing stocks. However, the butt-hurt in the MSM begs the question: if these countries the POTUS is allegedly talking about aren’t shitholes, then why do all the people want to come here?
