I think it's just instinctual to him. I think driving his opponents to doing irrational things is part of how he got so rich. I mean, we had the first president who admitted to being a drug addict in the whitehouse, no outrage from the media or the left. Trump calls a sh*thole a sh*thole and they're suddenly the arbiter's of language? I mean, this is the party of eminem and snoop dogg, is it not? The party of edgy, swear as often as you can, comedy, right? Yet now they're upset he said a swear about a country? They called half of americans deplorable and they have an issue with name calling now?
In many parts of Africa you can't find much remains of any civilization that dates back before being invaded by Europeans or others.

We MUST do something to help them. But bringing those people here with no skill like that will just take away from the poor already striving to improve their lives is insane.
So the answer is to simply block entire countries?

So is it racist for me to call Haiti a #hole?
I'm British, maybe my ancestors bought sugar off the French and that would make me culpable and racist?
It would not make you racist BUT would make your comments ignorant and irresponsible.

This has absolutely nothing to do with race. I absolutely laugh my a$$ off every time I read dribble like this.
Then why did trump hold up Haiti and Africa as examples of 'bad immigrants' and Norway, the whitest of white countries, as a place where 'good immigrants' come from?
Serious question. Why do you think that was? Why did he pick Norway as good, and Haiti and Africa as bad?
maybe this is why
"The Norwegian public education system is one of the best in Europe, and the general level of education in Norway is higher than the European average. In Norway, the education system is made up of primary school (Barneskole), lower secondary school (Ungdomsskole) and upper secondary school (Videregående skole)."
And he just met with the Norwegian boss.
So it was just fresh on his mind?
And they have the BEST wood.

Apparently lying about White House meetings was not restricted to just Republican Presidents. Durbin apparently did the same thing.... with Obama.
Caught This Time – Wha… Dick Durbin A Liar ? Gee, Ya Don’t Say….
Democrat Senator and Lib-Hack Media Darling, Dick Durbin, wanted to enhance the 36 hour Tea Party Racist narrative by claiming loudly a “GOP Leader” told President Obama: “I Cannot Even Stand To Look At You”. However, President Obama, and others in the room (via Jay Carney) say “that never happened”.
