hmmmm...... and all this means Haiti isn’t a shithole of course?

Its the worst, HIV/AIDS, Syphlis, Malaria, Dyptheria, Yellow Fever, Cholera, Rabies, Encephalitis, Typhoid, you name the disease, it is in Haiti.  Everybody asks where all the money went from the Concerts, Foreign Government Aid Programs, Disaster relief, Social Programs, Police Force etc etc etc???   Its all in  a suburb of Miami, Little River and Edison.   They call it Petite Port Au Prince, all the rich Haitians have haciendas there, drive nice cars, kids go to the best schools, most are former politicians, Aid organization CIO's, Police or Military Officers...............Yes, its a shithole as well as a cesspool.  We  called it 'Port O Potty' for good reason.

The Czech president has called Muslim immigrants criminals. The head of Poland’s governing party has said refugees are riddled with disease. The leader of Hungary has described migrants as a poison.

What's your point?

That because those country's leaders use racist, fascistic, white nationalist, anti-immigrant rhetoric, it's OK for the leader of the USA to do the same?

I can't put words in your mouth but that's what it sounds like.

Many Americans and many people in the world saw the USA as BETTER than that. 

trump and his supporters certainly don't.

The OAU found its voice that was silent when its LGBT community was being persecuted, silent when the Chinese were looting mineral wealth and exploiting  workers, silent when the EU was dumping toxic waste, silent when children and women are trafficked as sex workers and labour slaves, silent when endangered wildlife populations are slaughtered for quick money and silent when African dictators murder millions.

 

African leaders should be apologizing to their own people  for their own failings and should be  thanking  President trump for bring the subject up.

For most African and many  South/Central American countries, the citizens need to be honest about why they are leaving their countries of birth. The countries are corrupt, they live in poverty, there is no rule of law, they are shitholes. Of course, it is not politically correct to call a spade a spade, but those are the truthful realities. Those who have experience travel to those countries know. Not saying the people are bad, just saying the countries really are shitholes. Because they are, that is why  their citizens are trying to leave.

Trump is way off the mark in his remarks.   The discussion should have been on immigration, not on countries, and certainly not derogatory remarks about the country as a whole.   It is people who immigrate, not the entire nation.   

 

The criteria for entering the US is the same for a Norwegian as it is for a Nigerian.   The US and every other country, can set numbers, conditions on immigrants.   They can set financial requirements for sponsorship.   Most of those rules apply across the board, regardless of the country of origin.

 

There is no 'context' in which to put these remarks.   They have done nothing to solve concerns about immigration and they have only acted to inflame and possibly damage the image of the US and endanger citizens living and working in foreign countries.

I think Trumps right. And it's not racist.

 

Name me one country run by Blacks in Africa that any American black person (or white  or Asian for that matter) would willingly relocate to ? 

 

Once upon a time... Liberia. Not so much now.

One of the very few voices of sanity in this and other topics regards this matter.

Trump did not point to the corrupt politicians, corporates etc that have created the current conditions for the people, but to the victims; truly appalling behaviour to denigrate the victims

Liberal Trump hating hacks putting out their opinions that are off the charts, as usual. Nearly every word Trump utters is a racist statement, according to the Lib MSM.

Well it would seem that a few countries in Africa are not terrible shitholes after all, especially if you can live there with a western salary. :sleepy:

Complain Complain Complain. You'd think that an entire continent could come up with a Non-racist way to say 'shithole'.

still waiting for an African leader to stick his hand up and accept the reason the continent is in such dire straits because he and his mates robbed their country dry, while allowing a corrupt army and police force to run riot enriching themselves. But then, it must be so much easier to just blame Trump.
