Exactly where America needs to go. Into the unknown. That is the only thing I agree with you on. The rest is just "Fake News".

The snowflakes have had their feelings shattered by a remark thought by many,but which a real presidents has the balls to say outloud. So the hell what????   Get over it. A few hours in your little safe place will make you all feel better. our pink hats will protect you from such "nasty language"....LOL

Thank you. Your post is a perfect example of the level to which Trump has reduced public debate in the United States -- that of the schoolyard. I assume that “snowflake” is an effort at some kind of taunt. Good luck to you, man.

I've been to many places in the World including many in the United States that are less than desirable but they are someone else's home, especially if they do not have the means to relocate. A couple of people drinking in a bar may have referred to these places in a derogatory fashion, even using the same words Trump used 

However, when a person uttering such words is in a meeting that is attended by many other high ranking officials and is the President of the US- his words have added meaning and potentially represent the country as a whole . In addition, Trump's words have a racist and bigoted edge since his next statement after calling Africa a shithole- were that Norwegians were welcome.

This isn't just being politically incorrect-this is an inside look into how Trump thinks. He views people of color as inferior; poor and simply wanting to come to America to live off the Government. His statements throughout the election campaign and since being elected president have been consistent- consistently racist.  This meeting waas to draw up guidelines for an Immigration bill- and it appears many in the room wanted to make sure Africa and Central America were included .

Trump's ignorant and prejudiced rhetoric  continue to make America look as a country that is not inclusive but divisive at a time when America really needs friends and allies.  Africa as a whole has a burgeoning economy and hosts over 6,000 American troops, which should be of interest and known to a US President.

The problem with Trump is he is ignorant; doesn't study issues or read any of the background needed to make decisions and doesn't care who he offends.

Listening to Trump reminds me of decades ago when I was bartending- listening to half drunk patrons waxing about things they knew absolutely nothing about and cursing everything and everyone with their bigoted opinions.  Trump doesn't belong in the White House- he belongs in the shit house of the bar I used to work in those many decades ago.

Dear US Patriot: Each country in Africa is just another country. Norway is just another country. Haiti is just another country. As are Thailand and the United States and 190 other places. They are all filled with people who are basically the same and want the same things out of life. If your South African neighbor had a bad experience there or thought the crime rate was too high and wanted to move elsewhere, I think that’s great and I wish him well, but that does not give you, or the bigot cretin who currently occupies the White House, any justification to dismiss an entire continent of people as a shithole. In fact, the past few days I’ve seen various references to statistics showing that immigrants to the US from developing countries (“brown people”) are more highly educated and entrepreneurial on average than white people who have lived in the US for generations, and thus contribute at least their fair share to the US economy.

Really 9 of 54 are safe to visit.

 

Wont be long before they are all safer to visit than liberal europe

Also, when an African government or company is seeking a foreign business partner or investor, needless and stupid insults like Trump's only serve to disadvantage US companies who may be bidding on such ventures -- to the advantage of Chinese companies, for instance. So much for being a "great businessman," "the best negotiator"!

All part of the plan. Alienate enough allies and others who haven't taken a side yet and the Russians and Chinese can move in freely to grab their business and resources. I still wonder who actually thinks Trump's strings aren't being pulled by Moscow and Beijing.

However, his stated preference for members of the highest of Aryan races, the Norwegians, demonstrates his belief in a Master Race, and hopefully he will meet the same end as his nazi heroes.

Good historical analysis that Trump believes in nazi eugenics.  His father was a German immigrant who changed the family name from Drumpf to Trump to portray themselves as Swedish as opposed to German and avoid post-WW2 backlash while engaged in the real estate business in NYC.  http://www.independent.co.uk/voices/donald-trump-haiti-norway-shithole-racism-white-black-africa-aryan-adolf-hitler-eugenics-a8156241.html

Trump is such a moron. Thinks he can say anything and it's ok just because of his narcissistic ego. I feel so bad for the majority of Americans who have to be horribly embarrassed by the so-called Leader. And the minority who voted him in, shame on you for being taken in by a loudmouth racist con man

Liberal Europe didn't slaughter scores of people at a pop concert a couple of months ago, as a direct consequence of their pathetic  puerile obsession with guns...
