Before I start, let me just say, the article I posted hours after the news broke was just as the title said, my knee-jerk reaction. It was prior to me looking into the base of the President’s claim and before other facts were presented (which I will go over). But this is not me flip-flopping or anyone changing my mind for me. This is me, a day or so later, after further thinking and research. If you really want to know the truth, read this full article, watch the videos, or do your own research.
Since I’ve written that first article many new developments have come out.
- President Trump denies saying those words, but does admit to “tough language”.
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!
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!
- Only one person in the meeting recalls “shit hole” comment.
Senator’s Tom Cotton and David Perdue – both Republicans – say they do not recall hearing the President say that statement. Funny enough the only Democratic senator in the room is the only one who heard it.
- If it was said, is it really “racist”?
Believe me, I hope it wasn’t said, not because it’s incorrect but simply because it’s another distraction from all the positive things this President is doing for our country. But look at Haiti for example. The crime rate continues to grow, a number of times travel warnings (even under Obama) have been issued, tourists continue to be targeted for crimes and even people in the Haitian police force talk about all of the corruption in the government and authorities.
The President was simply raising the point that why wouldn’t we want more people coming to America who have great assets or skills to offer? Do we really want people who will come here, and become a burden on our system and offer nothing? The time for political correctness is over, it’s time to put Americans FIRST.
The media has gone crazy and had an absolute field day with this. Although there is no proof of it being said. This is precisely what is wrong with the mainstream media today. They convict based on allegations and hearsay. They’re clearly biased towards this President, and letting that get in the way of what they report. That is not journalism.
- The President wants more white people from Norway?
Another thing the media is bringing up is that Trump’s statement of bringing in more people from places like Norway, is somehow “an insight to how the President likes white people instead of brown people” – that’s a direct quote from CNN. What they fail to mention is how President Trump just had a meeting and press conference with Norway prime minister Erna Solberg. If you’re talking about someone or something literally all day, of course that person, place or thing is going to be on the mind. The President used Norway as an example not because he’s “racist” but because he had been talking about the place all day.
- The left is more upset with Trump allegedly saying Haiti is a shit hole than the Clinton Foundation literally stealing billions of donation money during the earthquake?
I dont believe President Trump said this. But if it was said, it wasn’t racially motivated. I don’t know about you but I’d rather live in Norway than Haiti.
