“The president had grown frustrated with lawmakers Thursday in the Oval Office when they discussed protecting immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries as part of a bipartisan immigration deal… ‘Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?’… Trump had said, according to these people, referring to countries mentioned by the lawmakers… Trump then suggested that the United States should instead bring more people from countries such as Norway…” – Anne Gearan (Washington Post) in “Trump denies ‘shithole countries’ comment on Twitter: This was not the language used” – National Post, Jan. 12th, 2018.
“Young black boys are still over-policed and under protected.

“The African Union Commission is frankly alarmed at statements by the president of the United States when referring to migrants of African countries and others in such contemptuous terms… Considering the historical reality of how many Africans arrived in the U.S. during the Atlantic slave trade, this flies in the face of all accepted behavior and practice… (eventually) the values the U.S. is known for because of its particular experience with migration will come to bear.” – Ebba Kalondo, spokeswoman for the African Union, quoted in “Here is what my #shithole looks like: African countries and Haiti react to Trump’s remark” – MSN, Jan. 12th, 2018.
“Following the Goldwater-psychiatrist debacle, the American Psychiatric Association declared it to be unethical for a psychiatrist to offer any kind of a diagnosis on a public figure without having examined that person… Now, more than half a century later, numerous psychiatrists and other mental health professionals are violating that sound ethical principle by diagnosing Donald Trump, whom they have never examined… A Yale psychiatry professor has suggested the possibility that Trump might be involuntarily committed to a mental hospital.” – Alan M. Dershowitz, “Don’t diagnose President Trump – respond to him” – Gatestone Institute, Jan. 12th, 2018.
“Once again, he dared to speak the truth: why should the United States be a dumping ground for millions of people from ‘s-hole’ countries? And another undeniable truth? The majority of people arriving in America today are from third-world countries. Upon their arrival, most are unemployable, and they speak little to no English. Some are illiterate – they can’t read, nor can they even write their own languages. In most major American cities, there are burgeoning immigrant enclaves populated by foreigners who have absolutely no intention of ever assimilating into the American culture.” – Anna L. Stark, “Trump’s vulgarity masks an important truth about immigration” – American Thinker, Jan. 13th, 2018.
