A New Low.’ The World Is Furious at Trump for His Remark About ‘Shithole Countries

President Donald Trump faced a swift rebuke Friday after allegedly questioning why the United States accepts citizens from “shithole” countries, with foreign governments, Democrats and even some Republicans denouncing the president’s vulgar terminology.

 

Your language plunges our country back into the deep depths of history when espousing racism behind the closed oval office doors was not only permitted, but expected & encouraged. You diminish the presidency and embarrass us to the world. Your idol Andrew Jackson would be proud.

US Democratic and Republican lawmakers criticized those comments as “divisive” and “unacceptable,” while Haiti summoned the top American diplomat there to discuss Trump’s remarks.
Trump’s reported comments, made at closed-door White House talks on an immigration deal, were a reaction to a plan to cut the number of people entering the United States through its visa lottery program. According to CNN sources, lawmakers proposed reducing the number by half, with the rest going to underrepresented countries in Africa and nations with temporary protected status or TPS.

The president’s reported comments about our allies in Latin America and Africa are disgusting. They diminish America’s standing in the world and should be denounced by every member of Congress.
