Will the GOP ever stand up to Trump's naked bigotry?

Shithole Countries: The Racist And Xenophobe That Is Donald Trump

Shithole Countries: The Racist And Xenophobe That Is Donald Trump

The confidant says Trump wasn't apologetic about his inflammatory remarks and denied he was racist, instead blaming the media for distorting his meaning.

The president also canceled his visit to London saying he was unhappy with the new U.S. Embassy there and the president trying to connect the decision on that new embassy to former president Obama? Trump also reportedly said the U.S. should allow more immigration from Norway and Asian countries. "For example, John F. Kennedy disclosed war injuries but not the fact he suffered from Addison's disease, a degenerative condition".

Before he was even elected, Trump raised the ire of many Latinos when he announced he wanted to build a wall to keep Mexicans from coming into the U.S. Most of the people here illegally, he said at a press conference, were "criminals and rapists".

Among other objections, Trump said the plan did not provide proper funding for the proposed wall that he made a center-piece of his election campaign. Or rather, I can fix this. Similarly, Germany's large Russian diaspora is part of what makes the country Russia's most important negotiating partner in Europe. Remember that viral tweet that was so celebrated after Trump moved to ban immigrants from Muslim-majority countries? It was devastating. My months of day-to-day optimism evaporated.

Rep. Carlos Curbelo of Florida, a second-term Republican who has been pushing for an immigration deal that includes a pathway to citizenship, told McClatchy while Graham was a valuable negotiator, he could see where lawmakers with less political baggage might be critical to success.

Note, at this point, many not-at-all-racist people, such as, say, Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson will be keen to steer the conversation towards "Is (insert name of country with Black people) actually a s--hole?"

Christian Christensen, a US citizen living in Sweden, wondered on Twitter why citizens of Norway would emigrate, pointing out the higher occurrences of shootings and poverty as well as the lack of healthcare and a social welfare net. They cleared tens of thousands of tons of rubble from the streets. He said "Put me down for wanting more Europeans to come to this country".

Yet, Trudeau is the good guy of the global immigration crisis.

Jackson has overseen health care for the Cabinet and senior staff, served as physician supervisor for the Camp David presidential retreat and led the White House Medical Unit.

In newsrooms across the country - including here at NPR - the reaction was "WHAT?!?" Unlike five years ago, Republicans now control Congress and the White House, creating a chance to bridge even the fiercest ideological divides within the GOP. "I understand that now is the moment". And when it finally came, many were shocked. And there are entreaties to educate the president about the truth of Haiti as if he simply suffers from ignorance. The Times reported that Trump said that Haitian immigrants "all have AIDS", and that those from Nigeria would never "go back to their huts" after they had been to the United States. Fourteen percent of second-generation Haitian Americans hold a master's degree, Ph.D. or advanced professional degree.

The remarks "were not 'tough, ' they were abhorrent and repulsive", Flake tweeted.

"The only thing that would attract me to emigrate to the US is your vibrant multicultural society".
