Yeah, I remember when NYC and LA were amazing cities, something to be proud of. Then the s**tholers came and ruined everything. The worst thing you can do is let the s**tholers or their friends in the MSM call any shots. S**tholers look at the moon. It's like the old sayings say. Once a s**tholer, always a s**tholer. S**tholer see, s**tholer do. You can take the s**tholer out of the s**thole but you can't take the s**thole out of the s**tholer. And last but not least, one bad s**tholer will ruin the whole basket. As you can see, Trumpie is right again. Nobody should strive to be a Haitian s**tholer. We're looking for evolved people over here, not s**tholers. Mexico and Central America are s**tholes too. S**tholers need not apply here.

There are many ways to advocate for a merit based system.

Using racist comments isn’t a great way to convince your colleagues that you are serious or have an appropriate argument.

Trump is his own worst enemy. He doesn’t prepare for anything. He wings all of his meetings and this is the result.

But go ahead and make excuses for him.

After some Republicans are finished with trying to convince the rest of us that they are outraged by Trump’s comments, they will still support him because “he is their president.”

“The party of Lincoln”, that lame slogan is proving false every day the GOP continues to support this inept dunce of a POTUS.

Just because crap is usually dark brown doesn't mean using the "shit" word to describe the voodoo drug culture of backwardness and vicious depravity that is Haiti is racist. The immediate connection of dark brown feces with Black people is racist however.

I’ve been to Haiti before and after the 2008 hurricanes. It IS a shithole country. Poverty like you can’t imagine. You know there is a village nearby because of the stench. People live in cardboard and wood huts with their animals. Dominican Republic wasn’t much better except the tourist cities. Filthy conditions and their governments do NOTHING for those people. Nothing

Voodoo didn't work for them then did it?
A lot of everyday Americans are catching on to these drug pushing prostitution prescribers who come to the US to take as much as they can and disrespect the national anthem with the rest of their kind. Filthy is as filthy does and the weeding out of the devil worshipper's would be good for America.

Agree, we can use them as a bad example of how to run a nation, and what being lazy, with no ambition to get ahead, looks like.

They want to come to the US to get over on the taxpayers for the most part. They are proud of their voodoo religion that has taken them nowhere but into desolation and they practice it when they come to the US to call on thieves and killers and destroyers to do the bidding of their master Satan.

Important because they are human beings. Why doesn’t their government help? When do we stop helping people who won’t help themselves

"President Donald Trump on Thursday questioned why the U.S. would accept more immigrants from "ithole countries" after senators discussed revamping rules affecting those from Africa and Haiti, according to people briefed on the conversation."

That's an excellent question and an excellent point.

The last thing we need is more unskilled and uneducated people coming to the US. Our public schools to a fine job pf creating plenty of those people. What we need are immigrants who are skilled, educated, and offer benefits the America and the American people. Sorry, most people coming from third world countries run by despots and tinhorn dictators are the OPPOSITE of what we need.

As far as some countries being a "ithole", if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it's a freeking duck.

Some might like the fluff of calling it a "feathered water fowl", but many enjoy the truth.....

They live in filthy evil and corrupt states.
Trump could have used better words for these countries who are taking America for a cash cow, but waste is usually going to run and pool if it is not contained. People can't handle the Truth!

I always expect Donnie to say something

crude, dumb, innacurate, racist, or trashy.

He's that kind of guy. It just goes to show.

And it didn’t take. It was wrong then and it is wrong now to single out countries and not look at individuals.

And even if Trump can make a case for a merit based system, it still applies only to the individual. Lumping all “undesirables” into a select group of countries is the definition of racism.

Trump could have made his case with a lot better argument, but he shot himself in the foot by being the blatant jerk that he is. He cannot resist sabotaging his own agenda.

And to make sure everyone understood that, Trump doubled down with Norway.

But Norwegians are not all that eager to move to the United States. Gee, cannot imagine why :-/

The Trump Dunce thrives on controversy and knows he can get away with it because the GOP will not hold him accountable for longer than a few seconds. Trump does what he does because nobody will call him out and really mean it.
