You wouldn't recognize the truth if it hit you in the face.

the thing for me here again is that Trump and and many of his base are just plain ignorant and don't give a Sh-t to even want to know any better.
especially about foreign countries or race.

the blanket thought that all black countries are S***holes is the only thing they've ever heard and the only thing they think they need to know.
So for Trump it only follows that no one there is of any value and therefore deserves to come to the U.S..
it's basic knee jerk "I'm not a racist but..." thinking.
like so many other areas Trump doesn't know anything about immigration or the immigrants to this country and the only lens he has to think about the concept is his piss poor small minded 'i saw poor people on TV'.

But one major set of African immigrants to the U.S. that Trump is obviously ignorant of are from Nigeria, here's some info.
Nigerian immigrants have the highest levels of education in Houston and the nation, surpassing whites and Asians, according to a Census data bolstered by an analysis of 13 annual Houston-area surveys, Leslie Casimir of the Houston Chronicle reports.

David Olowokere, originally from Nigeria and the chairman of Texas Southern University's department of engineering technologies, told Casimir that holding a master's degree just wasn't good enough for his people back home. So he got a doctorate. His wife, Shalewa Olowokere is a civil engineer and hold a master's degree.

According to a 2006 American Community Survey conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau, 17 percent of all Nigerians in the U.S. hold a master’s degree, 4 percent hold a doctorate and 37 percent have a bachelor’s degree. In comparison, 8 percent of the white population in the U.S. hold a master’s degrees, 1 percent hold a doctorate and 19 percent have a bachelor’s degrees.

The Nigerian numbers are strikingly high, Roderick Harrison told Casimir. He is a demographer at the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies...

But the bs ignorant stereotype's are all some people ever think they need to see or hear. But this Idjit is the president of the U.S. UNLIKE some rank and file americans he should at least THINK and LEARN more about the issues.
And also by DEFAULT he should be more compassionate about people trying to come to U.S. to better their lives rather than KNEE JERKINGLY assuming immigrants are BAD NEWS and should not be "allowed" in. Or making blanket negative comments about other countries. What kind of S**thead diplomat "world leader' does that.

Trump is an ignorant, low class S**thead . Only about 3 steps away from Archie Bunker on many issues.
I hope we can survive him.

I'm trying really, really hard to give a f**k about what you said. I think maybe your wording needs an enema.

Easy. Ask 100 people which of two countries they would like to visit for a week or more, Kenya or Haiti. The other one is the shlthole.

Once again, Trump lets unchecked words fall from his mouth.

However, I have to laugh at those who jump on the 'racist' band wagon.

Exactly where did he say something racist? Calling other countries ****holes is not racist, though not what anyone wants to hear from the POTUS. The man is totally crass.

Could it be that referencing Norway as a 'great country' has nothing to do with skin color, but academic achievement? That regardless of the country's political lean, they maintain a country where the citizens seem to thrive, and contribute to the world growth? Does someone have to conform to only 'your' point of view, for 'you' to see their achievement?

Ah yes, you can find racism if you want to look hard enough, no matter if it exists, or not.....

Actually, I find it refreshing that we have a President who is not afraid to say what we are thinking.

BUT NOW: it gets interesting.

President Trump tweeted this morning that "he didn't say it."

Apparently this "A$$Hole country" reference was reported by people, from "un-named sources" who didn't hear it, but were told he said it. So now what?

I guess it is up to Congressional members who were there to standup and tell what they know.

And time for members here to endlessly speculate about something we actually do not know.


Oh what fun!?!?!

I really do hope he said it, and he is not trying to chicken out of it. Speculate, my ass.

A former chief called Libya a "****show". He was right.

We may never know the truth of it.

The republicans will defend him with" I didn't hear him say it."

The Democrats will have to prop up the credibility of their allies in the media "we all understood what he really meant" when he didn't say it.

Or

He will have everyone else in the room, most of whom are not his friend in an election year, agree that he did say it and make him the liar.
