Trump does not use “presidential” language

“Now that’s a “shithole!”

Donald Trump: Trump does not use “presidential” language

Trump’s detractors are reliably predictable.

If you want to see how Trump can do or say nothing good in the view of his screeching detractors, this story explains it all. Trump questioned why America would accept more immigrants from Haiti and “shithole countries” in Africa, rather than places like Norway. And the proverbial hit the international fan. What some people refuse to understand is that Trump does not fit the traditional mould of diplomacy. He uses vulgar language which eliminates all misunderstanding. If he was calling Haiti a “shithole” he is right. Go and see for yourself—it’s a dangerous shithole. Just like the Sudanese black gangs waging a terror campaign in Victoria also come from a “shithole” of a country. That is why such people flee “shithole” countries. The problem is that they bring with them “shithole” ideology incompatible with most decent and civilised societies in the Western world. Trump does not mince words. That’s why he was elected. Meanwhile another record stock market close. Jobs up. Manufacturing up. and the list goes on but not in the socialist media.Haiti says it is “deeply shocked and outraged” by Trump’s vulgar remark on immigration, calling it “racist.” The Haitian government says in a statement that “these insulting and reprehensible statements in no way reflect the virtues of wisdom, restraint and discernment that must be cultivated by any high political authority.” It adds that the comment as reported “reflects a totally erroneous and racist view of the Haitian community and its contribution to the United States.” Haiti’s U.S. Ambassador Paul Altidor told Yamiche Alcindor that the Haitian government sent a formal request for a U.S. official to explain the U.S. president’s comment. Obviously forgotten is the US $13 billion in aid money to Haiti after the 2010 earthquake, and it still a shithole. Since the earthquake, the US has given $4.7 billion for assistance to Haiti. Their foolish ‘me to’ attack on Trump will no doubt be noted in his “donations to shithole countries book.”

Donald Trump denies s***hole reference to Africa and Haiti in wake of global backlash

US President Donald Trump has addressed global backlash to reports he referred to “shithole” African nations during a White House meeting on immigration, tweeting: “This was not the language used.”

Mr Trump faced a storm of criticism after the people briefed on the meeting said Mr Trump had questioned why the US would accept more immigrants from Haiti and “shithole countries” in Africa, rather than places like Norway.
The White House has not denied the language, nor have the several Republicans in the meeting.
However, without directly referencing the “shithole” comment, Mr Trump addressed the furore in a series of tweets.

External Link: The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used. What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made – a big setback for DACA!

“The language used in the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used,” he said, referring to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, designed to protect children brought to the US illegally.
Mr Trump later tweeted that his comments on Haiti were “made up” by Democrats.

External Link: Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country. Never said “take them out.” Made up by Dems. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians. Probably should record future meetings – unfortunately, no trust!

After reports of Mr Trumps comments were made public, the United Nations human rights office rejected the alleged remarks as “racist”.
“There is no other word one can use but ‘racist’,” UN human rights spokesman Rupert Colville told a Geneva news briefing when asked about the comments.
“You cannot dismiss entire countries and continents as ‘shitholes’, whose entire populations, who are not white, are therefore not welcome.”
“This isn’t just a story about vulgar language, it’s about opening the door to humanity’s worst side,” he said.

For the Salvadorans removed from the US in Donald Trump’s immigration crackdown, life is about to get harder.

Mr Trump’s denial came too late to ward off protests from the continent he was reported to have targeted.
The African Union said it was “frankly alarmed” by the President’s comments.
“Given the historical reality of how many Africans arrived in the United States as slaves, this statement flies in the face of all accepted behaviour and practice,” spokeswoman Ebba Kalondo said.
“This is particularly surprising as the United States of America remains a global example of how migration gave birth to a nation built on strong values of diversity and opportunity.”
Some African governments found themselves in an awkward position.
As top recipients of US aid, some hesitated to jeopardise it by criticising Mr Trump, especially as his administration has sought to slash foreign assistance.
“Unless it was specifically said about South Sudan, we have nothing to say,” South Sudan government spokesman Ateny Wek Ateny said.
But South Africa’s ruling African National Congress called the reports “extremely offensive”, while opposition leader Mmusi Maimane said they were “abhorrent”.
“The hatred of Obama’s roots now extends to an entire continent,” he said.
Deputy secretary general Jesse Duarte said developing countries do have difficulties, but the United States itself has millions of people out of work or without health care.

‘Good morning from the greatest most beautiful shithole’

While 40 percent of the world’s poor live in sub-Saharan Africa, according to the International Monetary Fund, the region also has billionaires, reality shows and a growing middle class.
Some quickly decided to own the vulgar language.
“Casual Friday at the White House is soon to include hoods and tiki torches at this rate,” South African media outlet Daily Maverick wrote.
“Good morning from the greatest most beautiful ‘shithole country’ in the world!!!” South African Broadcasting Corporation anchor Leanne Manas tweeted.
“As someone from South Shithole, Trevor is deeply offended by the President’s remarks,” The Daily Show, a US program, tweeted of its South African-born host, Trevor Noah.
In Kenya, East Africa’s economic hub, political activist Boniface Mwangi pleaded: “Please don’t confuse the #shithole leaders we Africans elect with our beautiful continent.”

    Couldn’t agree more. Show one country on the African continent that has not , or is not currently degenerating into a ” shithole”. Haiti has been a shithole ever since gaining it’s independence.

    The truth always hurts!

      Actually, one of the neighbouring countries to Zimbabwe, Botswana I think, is in fact a pretty good place according to a friend who grew up in Zim, and travels back there to visit family. Apparently the governance is OK and there is a decent economy and society. If one country can do it, surely the rest have no excuse. It all seems to come down to the “leaders” they either elect or have imposed upon them by dictatorships and “strongmen”, and the amount of corruption that has to be tolerated by the ordinary people.

      • Aktosplatz 13/01/2018, 12:21 pm

        I understand Botswana Bushkid, they are better than elsewhere because they have only one tribe in charge there.

        No tribal strife like elsewhere.

        I remember when it was Bechuanaland, and their first President at Independence was Seretse Khama, and his family have always ruled.

        I haven’t been there since the ’70s but back in the day they never even had an army.

      • Bwana Neusi 13/01/2018, 2:07 pm

        They have a diamond industry that provides a strong economy. They also have more donkeys per hectare than anywhere else in africa.

  • Eliza 13/01/2018, 7:31 am

    I was born and brought up on a farm in Kenya many moons ago and it is a tragedy to see what the so called indigenous have done to their countries since the white man was kicked out. I still have family living in S/Africa and they all would have moved somewhere else but Africa gets into your blood and it is hard to think of leaving. If President Trump used unpresidential language so be it as it is the unvarnished truth.

    • Muphin 13/01/2018, 8:03 am

      Elisa .. I’m an EX Rhodesian farmer. (Grand parents, parents and two brothers murdered by Mugabe’s marauders). Take a look at what Mugabe did to my country, he’s turned it into S**T H**e.

      ONLY Trump has the balls to call a spade a spade, the rest are too frightened that the PC brigade will punish them at the ballot box.

      • Aktosplatz 13/01/2018, 8:46 am

        I suspected there was something Rhodesian about you Muphin. And you have a wonderful legacy, in my view.

        You’re right what you said about Mugabe, but you would also know that You and other Rhodesians saw this coming after UK PM Macmillan sold you all down the river with his Winds of Change Speech in South Africa, in 1960.

        That same year, the Belgian Congo became Independent, and instant rape, murder, robbery, and infrastructure collapse happened – and it’s still the same today.( I was at school in Ndola then, which is close to the Congo border)

        So the Sh**hole picture is very accurate.

      • Aktosplatz 13/01/2018, 9:16 am

        I neglected to say, Muphin, I am terribly sorry about your loss at the hands of Mugabe’s terrorists.

      • Eliza 13/01/2018, 4:07 pm

        Murphin, so sorry to hear about your families murders.
        I was looking at a map of Africa and outside of Botswana and I think Malawi, I cannot see a single country East, West North or South that was not taken over and ruled by a murdering despot.
        Akto you had it in the Congo too. What were some of the best food bowl countries in the world are now Sh**holes and worse and Pres. Trump is the only leader strong enough to call it as it is.

  • TommyGun 13/01/2018, 7:51 am

    Oh this is so sweet!
    “Shithole” is one of my favorite words and I have often had to call on it when visiting other countries. Now President Trump has also decided it describes the situation very accurately.
    As noted above; countries like Haiti are shitholes through and through, and that is AFTER billions of US taxpay dollars have been tipped into the bottomless shithole. Instead of whining about being “outraged” (that word again), these useless parasites should pull their weight and lift themselves out of the shit. But no; they take the easy way out and simply migrate en-masse to the USA.

  • Zoltan 13/01/2018, 8:15 am

    Plain speaking, I love it. Perhaps the detractors need to visit some of these places to discover the truth. The truth, which as we all know is the new “hate speech”.

  • Gary Gray 13/01/2018, 8:22 am

    Boy is he right or what? Current problem conditions in Europe especially France, Sweden Germany etc are heading the same way. I have been to many third world countries and Pres. Trump’s description is unfortunately correct. But I have only visited 67 countries so what the hell do I know?

  • Aktosplatz 13/01/2018, 8:53 am

    I did reply to Muphin above, but the thing I love about Trump is that he tells it as it is.

    And it’s never happened before. This POTUS doesn’t muck around, and he’s great.

    I notice that the Poms are in a dither because Trump was coming to the UK to re-open the American Embassy in London, worried about protests ( that Corbyn has promised).

    So he’s told them to shove it, he’s not going now ( and he probably thinks the UK today’s a bit of a Sh**hole too)

    • Zoltan 13/01/2018, 9:15 am

      As somebody of English parentage and having lived many a year in England (before seeing sense and coming home to the country of my birth) I have to take exception to your comment A.
      The UK is not, nor ever has been a shithole.
      It’s now a f#&*ing shithole.

      • Aktosplatz 13/01/2018, 9:22 am

        Thanks Zoltan – I went back to the UK in 2013 and hired a car at Manchester Airport. I was driving around the Salford Area where I used to live in my pre-teens some 60 years ago.

        And I was shocked, very shocked. Lots of rubbish on the streets, groups of Men of Middle Eastern Appearance glaring at me – I stopped and asked some for some directions and they did not say a word, not a word. The hostility was palpable.

        And I remembered Enoch Powell, one of the best UK Politicians, ever….

  • Lorraine 13/01/2018, 9:29 am

    Truth is what the President expressed and again the left have gone bananas .Those people seeking new lives are not leaving a paradise most people with in tact brains knows it

  • Clarion Call 13/01/2018, 12:31 pm

    The world does not know how to handle Donald Trump’s unique brand of ‘tell-it-like-it-is’ commentary. No BS, no stupid PC concoctions, no language of diplomacy….just serious but truthful statements of fact the left-wing brigades world-wide cannot acknowledge. Let’s hope he continues to dig the knife into those who plot to undermine and crush hundreds of years of a truly wonderful Christian-based society.

  • Graham 13/01/2018, 1:34 pm

    Well the Don really got up the snowflakes noses with that one, ha ha. They’ll all be rushing off to find a safe place to work on their colouring books while clutching their teddies just that bit harder tonight.

  • Jack Richards 13/01/2018, 4:14 pm

    They are shitholes. It always astonishes me to see the filthy rivers, the mountains of garbage, people shitting wherever, mongrel dogs and assorted other animals pawing through the rubbish while there’s an endless supply of labour who could do something about it but don’t.

    Take Haiti for example. They had that flood or earthquake or whatever it was a year or more before there was the big flood in Brisbane. A year after the Brisbane flood it had all been restored. I was at South Bank a year later and the only evidence was the water marks painted on some buildings. All these years later there’s been no clean-up in Haiti while pick their way around the rubbish wait for “international aid” to do the work.

    In 1957, after Ghana became the first African country to become independent, they had a bigger and better economy and more infrastructure than either Singapore or South Korea plus about 500 million pounds sterling in the treasury. Kwame Nkrumah, the first President, was hailed by the usual suspects as being the “model” for de-colonisation. Now it’s pretty much as it was in 1957 but the money is all gone, the infrastructure is crumbling and it’s going backwards as it has done constantly since the British left. Singapore and South Korea could buy the whole place with their loose change these days.

    Africa’s failure is entirely attributable to the Africans.

    • Lorraine 13/01/2018, 5:52 pm

      Obama did his best to wreck what he touched , the hated white man with the brains , the work ethic ,is on the nose as Black Lives matters takes over , if they win we all lose

      • Biking Voter 13/01/2018, 6:44 pm

        He too had the faecal touch, much like Dear Leader Melvin

  • Gregoryno6 14/01/2018, 11:32 am

    Whether Trump used the word or not, the people who got the story rolling are getting one hell of a blowback.
    First, they thought it would deliver a crushing loss of support for PDJT. Quite the opposite.
    Second, those folks who throw up their hands in horror have in effect said that there’s no reason for illegal immigrants to be in the US. If your homeland’s not a shithole, why the hell did you leave?
