President Trump dismissed Washington Post’s unsourced and anonymous report from yesterday, which claimed that he referred to Haiti and various other countries as shitholes, during a bipartisan negotiation with lawmakers, where they discussed DACA and immigration related issues. For further reference, read this article: Amnesty Talks Blown Up as President Trump Balks at ‘Shithole ‘ Immigration Deal.
As I already warned you in the previous article, considering the highly discredited and rabid anti Trump source (Jeff Bezos’ blog), the claims made by WaPo’s reporter should be taken with a big grain of Himalayan salt. Here’s today’s response from the Donald regarding the “shithole” allegations:
The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used. What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made – a big setback for DACA!

In a series of tweets on Friday, President Trump dismissed Senate’s immigration plan, a bipartisan bill, describing it as a big step backwards, while saying that the respective legislation would force the US to admit immigrants from high crime countries:
The so-called bipartisan DACA deal presented yesterday to myself and a group of Republican Senators and Congressmen was a big step backwards. Wall was not properly funded, Chain & Lottery were made worse and USA would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime…..— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 12, 2018
….countries which are doing badly. I want a merit based system of immigration and people who will help take our country to the next level. I want safety and security for our people. I want to stop the massive inflow of drugs. I want to fund our military, not do a Dem defund….— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 12, 2018
….Because of the Democrats not being interested in life and safety, DACA has now taken a big step backwards. The Dems will threaten “shutdown,” but what they are really doing is shutting down our military, at a time we need it most. Get smart, MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 12, 2018
Maybe we need to return to the “not-so-old” days where “immigrants” required a sponsor that assumed financial responsibility for the immigrant. Any benefits should also be pro-rated on what the immigrant has paid into the system. For that matter, any benefits for anybody should be prorated to what they paid in/earned.
Finally, it’s obvious that the Democrats don’t really want a Dreamer deal with Trump. They want the issue to be alive and kicking for the coming election. Sorry, Dreamers, Democrats gain politically by throwing you under the bus.
