Trump proves himself a racist yet again.

President Trump grew frustrated with lawmakers in the Oval Office “when they floated restoring protections for immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries as part of a bipartisan immigration deal,” the Washington Post reports.  Said Trump: “Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?”

He then suggested that the United States should instead bring more people from countries like Norway.  Gee, I wonder what the difference is between people from Norway and those from Haiti and Africa?   Could it be one is white and one is black?

CNN says Trump ultimately rejected a bipartisan immigration deal that was being presented.

So good.  Blow up all deals and negotiations.  The Democratic position is now simple.   Tell Republicans they will pass a clean DACA, with no border wall, and no other concessions on the lottery or chain migration, or else the government shuts down on January 19.

 

Delaware politics from a liberal, progressive and Democratic perspective. Keep Delaware Blue.

    Because he is sendingfictional military hardware to the Norweigians. They know what’s up. Plus the Norwegians have real health care too.

    A racist says what a racist says. Too bad so many of our fellow Americans are AOK with this bullshit.

      This is an interesting leak too, right? With all of the new lockdown on having cell phones or fitness trackers or smart watches in the West Wing. Given that immigration is at the top of the concern list along with an operating budget, one wonders if this isn’t on purpose. To fire up the Fox News anti-brown people crowd.

      • Yea, they don’t have any “brown” people as you would call them, on Fox. We need some type of immigration plan for all. Unfortunately, we can’t change our constitution. Women from Russia are having babies here. A US passport is very valuable over there.

  2. Wish I could say I’m surprised, but I’m not. This comment isn’t that different from what he’s been saying all along. Trump supporters didn’t vote for him because of ‘economic anxiety’ (the media inflated that throw-away line) they voted for him because of this crap.

    I’ve been away, so I might be missing it… Have Republicans called this out yet?

    • Only one I have seen is Congresswoman Mia Love, an African American Republican from Utah. She demanded the President apologize publicly to the American people and to the countries involved.
