How many people from a country with a 61 per 100k murder rate would you like?
Bwahahaha! You should really look up the definition of racism.
Returning citizens of Haiti to their country is racist?
I do feel bad about it. I do care about those people. Nothing wrong or shameful about compassion.
Not wanting certain people given TPS because of were they are from sounds racist.
Take them out was in reference to the deal on immigration, he said take them out of the deal, so how is taking them out of the immigration plan racist. And most African countries are shitholes, who in their right minds would want to live there. Those that do live there were just born unlucky to be born in a third world shithole.
He never said deport the ones here but take them out of the immigration plan their working on to not bring anymore here.
No wonder everybody but the far right-wing thinks that the Gateway Pundit is a shithole of a fake news site...
The way he worded the remarks sounded racist and troubling to me. Talking about **** holes and wanting certain people taken out of potential TPS because of were they are from.
Like I've stated before, this is more befitting a Stormfront forum post. Not the leader of the free world.
"Racist" has more punch than "feels"
Well...it used to until the left wore it out.
Well I'm not the left, but I think you finally get it that...Yes, it is our subjective view on the matter.
Calling African countries shitholes and then saying how we need to take Haitians out of TPS (or remove current ones, depending on what he was discussing) because of were they are from, and then saying how we need Norwegians (lol like they'll want to downgrade) does appear racist to me. Combined with past events, I think he is a racist.
In fact, it appears racist to many,
I'll be interested to see results when polls on this matter come out.
Why do you want more Haitians here, they are no more deserving to come here than anyone else. Why were they included in the plan. Its because they are future democrat voting base that why democrats want people form third world countries here because they know they can count on them for their vote because they are poor, dependent and uneducated. Pretty messed up if you ask me.
Like you really don't think most countries in Africa are shitholes, Trump just says what most think even liberals. Hell we have shithole cities here in America too.
So basically you are saying Tappers tweets are fake.
Coming from someone who thinks you can tell the likelihood of someone being educated based on their race that's pretty funny.
Why must the United States be stupid regarding immigration. Leftists tend to believe that NOTHING they do could ever possibly harm this nation. They would be wrong. No nation is so robust that it can endlessly take it on the chin in the name of compassion without harming itself. Leftists tend to live in an utter dreamworld; which is fine as long as all that dreaming harms only them. The problem being that they tend to harm the entire nation with their foolishness.
I never said to take people out of TPS for education reasons or because of were they are from.
not hardly, he is saying Trump could say he meant the African Countries were SH's, and that he did not specifically say that about Haitians directly, he still said it...
not any better, just a way to explain why Trump may have worded his denial in a way to later say he was not talking about Haitians in the SH comment
and for Haitians, he said
““Haitians?” the president said. “Why do we need more Haitians? Take them out” —- meaning take them out of the deal.”
Only three African countries were on the TPS list.
Yep, here we go. The fake news theories by people who weren’t in the room with Trump. The backpedaling here couldn’t be more obvious.
Tapper points out how the news was fake so now you are saying that is fake news. Go figure.
the right is sad trying to spin this as he did not say it
he said it about African countries, not Haitians.... that means he still said it
"“The president did not refer to Haiti as a “shithole” country according to the source familiar with the meeting… though he DID say it about countries in Africa… What happened, the source says, is there was a conflation of two different remarks by the president,” Tapper tweeted."
He’s most likely pointing that out using the backpedaling the White House has been pushing out over the past 24 hours over the statement.
No souse where that came that info came from. That fiquries. .
Trump's Apologists abandoned any hope of being taken seriously a long time ago.
They have been getting totally OWNED on this subject, yet they continue to inexplicably defend him.
Didn’t read the tweets I see.
