Trump: "Why Are We Having All These People From Shithole Countries Come Here?"

While a bipartisan senate group had reportedly reached an "agreement in principle" on DACA, as well as packaging immigration reform in order to avoid a government shutdown next Friday, things took another turn for the bizarre, when the WaPo reported that Trump "grew frustrated with lawmakers Thursday in the Oval Office when they floated restoring protections for immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries" as part of the proposed deal.

"Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?" Trump burst out, referring to African countries and Haiti. Instead, he suggested that the United States should instead bring more people from countries like Norway.

The comments left lawmakers "taken aback."

Sens. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) and Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.) proposed cutting the visa lottery program by 50 percent and prioritizing countries already in the system, a White House official said.

As reported earlier, the administration announced this week that it was removing the protection for over 200,000 citizens from El Salvador; meanwhile, as part of a potential bipartisan deal, lawmakers discussed restoring protections for countries that have been removed from the temporary protected status program while adding $1.5 billion for a border wall and making changes to the visa lottery system.

And, as so often happens, what was until noon a tentative deal, exploded in the afternoon when Trump changed his mind:

Trump had seemed amenable to a deal earlier in the day during phone calls, aides said, but shifted his position in the meeting and did not seem interested.

Why do we need to import people from other countries at all?

There is NO obligation for the U.S. to allow immigration.

Funny how the press is making a big deal about Trump's statement but it is the truth. Those countries are sholes.

Big deal Trump called some countries exactly what they are.

Of course, it's perfectly OK for Democrats to call Trump a shithead and worse.

I'm pretty sure if you google "shithole", a picture of Haiti will come up.

Liberals need to make up their minds. We keep hearing from liberals and how bad these countries are and we can't send the illegals back there. If that is the case than I guess they really are "shitholes". Now the liberals yell those countries are not "shitholes" well than problem solved send the illegals back to their paradise country.

So if Haiti, El Salvadore and these African countries are not Shitholes and are paradises, the illegals and temporary visa holding asses will not mind being deported home!!!

It used to be we only allowed immigrants and families of those immigrants who would be an asset to our society to become citizens. We need doctors. So we take in doctors. Not every terror stricken nation on earth! We need proper immigration laws. Obama allowed terrorists to enter through Mexico via So America and also through the refugee programs. We need more than a wall. We need politicians to uphold the laws they swore they would do when they took their oaths of office.

The island of Hispaniola has two countries on it, on one end the country of the Dominican Republic is doing just fine on the other end is Haiti and that is a shit hole with their witch craft and voo doo ect. Of course the fact the Clintons ripped the country off for millions of dollars didn't help.

7:10 the clintons didn't rip off Haiti for millions of dollars(Haiti doesn't have any money). They ripped off us and other countries of the aid money meant to help Haiti.

You’ve obviously never been to the DR or if you have you never set foot off the Sandals resort. Trust me. The DR is a major shithole too.

We have taken a cruise there some years ago and it was "suggested" to us that we NOT go to the Haiti side. So we didn't. I do remember a military Jeep riding then disappearing by the beach. They were all armed so I stayed where the rest of the tourists were. Same thing for parts of Mexico we visited. I went off the beaten path ONCE. People there looked at me like they would slit my throat for a buck. I ran back to the tourist area and never left it again.

Tourists are vulnerable wherever they go but some areas are dangerous even for the locals. I think some people assume every country is like ours, they are not. They only want our money. Most places treat tourists nice so they will return as their economy revolves around the tourist trade, and we have met some terrific people in other countries. But, there are places like Jamaica, Haiti, certain spots in Mexico, etc., that can be and are dangerous.

They are definitely shitholes.

Hope their Obamacare covers treatment for getting the vapors!

Every damned one of these hypocrites has used language like that in private, and some have used it in public. LBJ's language would cause paint to peel, as an example. Hope sound bites from the hypocrite's past utterances is forthcoming.

The President's terminology was frank, but entirely accurate. More to the point, his question was exactly on target and perfectly framed the issue.

Because democrats see them as potential voters. The only reason.
