Trump is making headlines again for being ignorant.
During a recent meeting in the white house on Thursday, Donald Trump said “Why are we having all these people from S***hole countries come here?”. The statement was made during a meeting to discuss a possible bipartisan immigration compromise. According to reports, he was referring to immigrants from Africa and Haiti. Donald Trump suggested that America should be focused on allowing more immigrants from places like Norway instead. He did this on the 8 year wake of the devastating earthquake that killed hundreds in Haiti that killed over 100,000 people and left a lot of people to be homeless. Its estimated that there are still 50,000 people still displaced in camps to this day from the earthquake.
And just in case you are not familiar with Norway, it’s one of the worlds richest and whitest nations.
His statement and suggestion sent people on rants of anger and disappointment. Its isn’t sad enough that our country is still constantly battling racism and its only making matters worse when our very own president continues to demonstrate to the world how racist our country really is.
Congress issued a statement saying “Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries but President Trump will always fight for the American people,” and claimed that the current programs “allow terrorist into our country.” Its sad that they failed to acknowledge that this country is full of immigrants that came from the countries President Donald Trump referred to as S***hole countries. As the President of the UNITED STATES of America Donald Trump should know how to compose himself in a manor that will not offend the country that he is suppose to represent.
How can we get over a horrifying past when its constantly being brought up by the leaders of our country in such a negative and degrading way? If the President really is for the ‘American People’ how can he not respect the countries that its people come from? And the fact that he suggested that we bring in more people from Norway suggest to me that his intentions are to make America white again not great; even though America was never white in the first place and the country is far from being great when we are dealing with petty issues such as racism and police brutality still.
I’m Just Saying…
