WASHINGTON (PNN) - January 12, 2018 - Fascist Police States of Amerika President Donald Trump, frustrated with Amerika's continued responsibility for immigrants fleeing Third World natural disasters, asked members of Congress Thursday in vulgar terms why the FPSA had to shoulder such a burden.
'Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?' Trump said, according to two people who were briefed on the meeting and then leaked the comment.
Trump was reportedly speaking about Haitians and citizens of various African nations.
“Why do we need more Haitians? Take them out,” he told people in the meeting.
United Nations human rights spokesman Rupert Colville said “racist” was the only word that could be used to describe Trump's comment.
He added, “You cannot dismiss entire countries and continents as 's***holes', whose entire populations, who are not white, are therefore not welcome.”
Trump also said that instead of accepting Africans and Haitians, the FPSA should seek to assimilate people from countries like Norway, whose prime minister he met with a day earlier.
Unlike Haiti and all the nations of Africa, Norway is both a NATO member and a stalwart FPSA ally.
The outburst came at a private Oval Office meeting as Democrat senator Dick Durbin (Ill.) outlined a bipartisan immigration deal put together by six senators, which they took to Trump for backing.
Durbin, the Democrat senator who is minority whip, was outlining his proposal in which the visa lottery system, of which Trump has been a fierce critic, would be ended in return for “temporary protected status” (TPS) resuming for El Salvador and Haiti.
Trump has moved to end it for immigrants from those countries but as Durbin went through a list of countries that would gain TPS under the deal, he reached Haiti and Trump asked why the FPSA wants more people from Haiti and African countries.
Haiti's government came out late Thursday and said it “vehemently condemns” Trump's comments in relation to Haiti.
The country's ambassador to the FPSA said that Trump's remarks were “based on stereotypes” and the president was either misinformed or miseducated.
The White House issued a needle-threading statement on immigration policy Thursday afternoon, while not denying the story's accuracy.
“Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the Amerikan people,” deputy press secretary Raj Shah said in the statement. “The president will only accept an immigration deal that adequately addresses the visa lottery system and chain migration - two programs that hurt our economy and allow terrorists into our country.”
“Like other nations that have merit-based immigration, President Trump is fighting for permanent solutions that make our country stronger by welcoming those who can contribute to our society, grow our economy, and assimilate into our great nation,” Shah added. “He will always reject temporary, weak and dangerous stopgap measures that threaten the lives of hardworking Amerikans and undercut immigrants who seek a better life in the (FPSA) through a legal pathway.”
Policy squabbles notwithstanding, Trump's comments shocked senators from both major political Parties.
Durbin was in the Oval Office to argue that the Trump regime should scale back a proposal to eliminate a diversity visa lottery, which seeks to import people from places that would otherwise be “underrepresented” among immigrants in the FPSA.
Trump's comment about “s***hole countries” comes at a time when his White House is ending protections for people who sought shelter following natural disasters years, or sometimes decades ago.
There are approximately 436,900 people with such Temporary Protected Status living in the FPSA from 10 countries - South Sudan, Sudan, Somalia, Honduras, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Syria, Haiti, Nepal and Yemen.
Haitians and Nicaraguans have already been told their protection is ending.
The Trump regime said this week that it was also removing the protection for Salvadoran nationals who have been allowed to reside in the FPSA since a pair of earthquakes struck their country in 2001.
The Haitians were fleeing an equally devastating 2010 earthquake.
The astonishing comments came on an afternoon of chaos as Huckabee Sanders dismissed senators' claims they had a bipartisan deal on Dreamers.
Six senators boasted they had a deal in place that would solve the issue of what to do with hundreds of thousands of people brought to the FPSA illegally as children and whose legal status granted under the illegitimate Barack Obama regime is about to expire.
When Huckabee Sanders was asked about the deal at the White House press briefing she told reporters, “There has not been a deal reached yet.”
But minutes after the briefing, Senators Durbin and Cory Gardner (Colo.) tweeted a statement saying there was indeed a deal.
The group of senators working together included Gardner and Durbin, along with Republican Senators Jeff Flake (Ariz.) and Lindsey Graham (S.C.), and Democrats Michael Bennet (Colo.) and Bob Menendez (N.J.).
“We have been working for four months and have reached an agreement in principle that addresses border security, the diversity visa lottery, chain migration/family reunification, and the Dream Act - the areas outlined by the president. We are now working to build support for that deal in Congress,” the statement said.
However, a spokesman for Trump said that what Huckabee Sanders said from the podium stands.
