People from ‘shithole countries’ share their accomplishments to prove Trump wrong
In light of President Donald Trump’s disgusting and racist comments, people from around the world are sharing their life accomplishments on Twitter.
A report from the Washington Post reveals that in a meeting with lawmakers on Thursday, Trump asked why the United States was accepting immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador, and African countries. The president reportedly asked the room: “Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?”
Trump later suggested the United States should bring in more people from countries like Norway instead.
In light of those comments, people from regions Trump labeled “shithole countries” have been firing back in the best way possible: listing their life accomplishments to counter Trump’s close-minded and racist view.
