Blunt force Trumpism leaves diplomatic speakers gasping for air

Trump’s Vulgar Immigration Remarks Alarm Lawmakers

  • President Trump demanded to know why the U.S. should welcome immigrants from “shithole countries” like Haiti and not from countries like Norway.
  • Mr. Trump made the remarks at a meeting with lawmakers at the White House, according to people with direct knowledge of the conversation.
I know we are supposed to pretend that all of these countries have some value, but for many of them, it is not evident.  There are some fine Haitians who have come here and made a contribution, but it is one that could not have achieved if they remained in Haiti. 

The fact is that the people trying to get to this country know that their current country is not ideal and is perhaps as Trump describes them.  What they need to do is prove they are better than that.  One way they can do that is by rejecting the failed culture of their original homeland.
