Here’s What People From ‘Shithole Countries’ Had to Say About President Trumps Remarks

In blunt and vulgar message, US President Donald Trump recently asked why his country accepts more immigrants from “shithole countries” in Africa rather than first world countries such as Norway, as he rejected a bipartisan immigration deal. 

Trump’s comments were brought on as two senators communicated on a bipartisan compromise that would extend protections against deportation for hundreds of thousands of young immigrants and strengthen border protections.

Specifically he was quoted saying “What do we want Haitians here for? Why do we want all these people from Africa here? Why do we want all these people from shithole countries? We should have people from places like Norway.”

As a response, twitter users with roots in Haiti, El Salvador and African nations took to the internet to declare their pride in the face of reports that President Donald Trump referred to them as “shithole countries”.

Here are a few replies to the mad president:

1. Immagrint father from ‘shithole’ country.

2. Liberia isn’t a ‘shithole’ country.

3. This impressively learned woman is from a ‘shithole’ country.

4. Her ‘shithole’ country is creating great people.

5.  Beautiful South Africa is reffered to as a ‘shithole’ country.

6. People from ‘shithole countries’ have some impeccable credentials.

7.  We have a Neonatal Specialist in the house.
