Get people from Norway, not sh**hole countries

Get people from Norway, not sh**hole countries

On Thursday, while in a meeting with bipartisan lawmakers about immigration reform, Trump referred to El Salvador, Haiti and a handful of African nations as "s-thole countries", questioning why the USA could not receive more immigrants from places like Norway.

Republican Rep. Mia Love of Utah, who is of Haitian decent, demanded Trump to apologize.

The New York Times also reported, citing unnamed sources with direct knowledge of the discussion, that Trump made the remark about Haiti and African countries and added, "Why do we want people from Haiti here?" Trump was quoted by multiple media reports.

The Washington Post, who first reported the story, claim he asked why they didn't have more immigrants from countries like Norway.

The sources told the Post some lawmakers were taken aback by Trump's remarks. Trump has signaled he would sign a bill to protect 800,000 undocumented immigrants who entered the country as children, known as "DREAMers, but only if it included funding for a wall along the U.S". Trump questioned why the United States would want people from nations such as Haiti while he was being briefed on changes to the visa lottery system.

According to a new report from The Washington Post on Thursday, in a meeting on immigration, President Trump dropped what little pretense he had about what kind of immigrants he thinks should be allowed in.




Earlier this week, the Trump administration chose to cancel permits that allow almost 200,000 people from El Salvador to live and work in the US. Trump's comments came after lawmakers floated restoring protections for people from El Salvador, Haiti and Africa, which his administration has stripped away recently.

Donald Trump often struggles to remember what he supports when it comes to the nitty-gritty details of policy. They do not reflect our nation's values. "He just shouldn't be referring to countries like around the world in this manner".

In response, CNN White House Correspondent Jim Acosta went live on CNN and repeatedly said the word "shithole".

"As an American, I am ashamed of the president". They're not shocking, not even really surprising because this is who Donald Trump is. "We always knew that president Trump doesn't like people from certain countries or people or certain colors", alleged Democratic Congressman Luis Gutierrez.

At a White House press briefing a few hours earlier, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders expressed optimism about a bipartisan immigration agreement.
