After Trump made racist remarks lamenting immigrants coming from “shithole countries” like Haiti and nations in Africa rather than from Norway, people on Twitter, including some actual Norwegians, said America itself seem like a bit of a shithole.
At a meeting with lawmakers in the Oval Office on Thursday, Trump called Haiti and African nations “shithole countries” White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah later responded in a statement saying,
“Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people.”
Trump recent trash talking points are just the latest in a growing list of racist remarks he’s made since he was elected. Many groups and senators, were pissed, and several members of Congress have swiftly condemned them.
People on Twitter told the president in raid response that for Norwegians, the U.S., and particularly Trump’s America, may actually not be so attractive. Norway is literally the happiest country in the world.
Someone with the whitest name on the planet, who MUST be Norwegian, Chistian Christensen, tweeted,
“Of course people from #Norway would love to move to a country where people are far more likely to be shot, live in poverty, get no healthcare because they’re poor, get no paid parental leave or subsidized daycare and see fewer women in political power. #Shithole”
I know some Americans that might be looking at moving to Norway if this keeps up much longer.
