In an Oval Office meeting with lawmakers on Thursday, President Donald Trump described Haiti and African nations as “****hole” countries and slammed the idea of restoring protections for immigrants from those regions.

“Why are we having all these people from s*ithole countries come here?” the president said, sources told The Washington Post. Trump reportedly followed up suggesting the U.S. should welcome more immigrants from countries like Norway.

The exchange was confirmed by NBC News, BuzzFeed and CNN.

Trump’s remarks sparked immediate outrage from progressive organizations and Democratic lawmakers, including Reps. Barbara Lee (Calif.), Bonnie Watson Coleman (N.J.), Jim McGovern (Mass.) and Karen Bass (Calif.).

Haiti’s Ambassador to the U.S., Paul Altidor, has also formally summoned an American official to explain the president’s comments and said the government “vehemently” condemned them, NBC News contributor Yamiche Alcindor reported.

It's probably what most Americans think behind closed doors, but I guess the president actually saying it and that bluntly just won't fly.

That man has no filter.
Which is why he is the best leader in the world. Say things as they are. No need to hide behind political correctness. Things will never improve if everyone lies to themselves. We all know he is correct. Just take a look at this s**hole we live in.

Too bad he's a racist con-man.

*edit* sorry, I need to address this part of your post:

Say things as they are.
He doesn't say things as they are, he says things as he perceives them to be. Just because one agrees with the things he says, doesn't make them all true. It just makes one an idiot, imho.

Because that is all you need to be the best leader in the world.

What does it serve to antagonise the entire world for nothing but racist ramblings. If he doesn't want immigrants from those countries he can ban them like he did the Muslim. Doesn't have to be display his racist *******ry for the world to behold.

He probably will ban people from African countries next. This was just the start and he will probably get a lot of support from Americans. I still do not see it as racist, though.

He is known to be racist and most of his views about those regions are partly fuelled by that racist ignorance.

It's particularly hilarious that Trump thinks they should have more Norwegian immigrants. Apparently a country can be radically liberal socialist, but as long as its populace has the right 'look', the doors are open.

So lets look at this one. If African Countries and other places are not sh*tholes, then why the hell would people want to leave them? Trump is just being brutally honest. Further more if said countries are not sh*tholes, then why doesn't everyone complaining about this immigrate to them?

Heck, most people from these countries would probably agree with him on this.
