“EXTRA, EXTRA, read all about it…Trump is a racist!” To paraphrase, that has been the lie used against President Donald Trump since he first declared that he planned to seek office. The latest myth is that the Commander in Cheif called certain “high crime” nations “sh*tholes.” If he had, calling the state of an abused nation such a term is not the same as calling the people of that nation such terms, but the left has seen fit to spin this latest supposed outburst to fit their narrative.
Their only hurdle, however, is that it never happened and was never said. According to AOL, America’s leader has denied ever uttering “anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country.” This is far cry from the story peddled by U.S. Democratic Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL).
That is why Durbin is out there today proclaiming that Mr. Trump used “vile, vulgar” terms, such as the one listed above.
The White House did tweet, “The so-called bipartisan DACA deal presented yesterday to myself and a group of Republican Senators and Congressmen was a big step backwards” in response to the bill signed. However, that is not a reflection of the people, their race, nor their color. It is a reflection, rather, on the fact that they did not apply legally to be here, no matter what color they may be.
“Wall was not properly funded, Chain & Lottery were made worse and USA would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime countries which are doing badly,” Mr. Trump warned. At no point did he mention race, largely because he’s not addressing race. Rather, he is talking about how an influx of people from crime-ridden nations increases the crime potential in America, a well-established fact. To use a comparison, that is why parents warn their children to not hang around too many “bad kids” or they will end up in trouble themselves. It is simply common sense.
Donald Trump is not claiming that he did not speak harshly at the meeting, only that he did not say “sh*thole” or insult anyone’s color. “The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used,” he stated.
Highlighting the reason why the U.S. may wish to reconsider even remaining the United Nations, U.N. human rights spokesman Rupert Colville said, “These are shocking and shameful comments from the President of the United States. There is no other word one can use but ‘racist‘” before he even verified that the words were really said (which they seem not to have been).
In similar folly, Jessie Duarte, a senior official with the ruling African National Congress, said, “Ours is not a sh*thole country. Neither is Haiti or any other country in distress.” While that may be true, if a country is allowed, via dreadfully inept leadership, to live in a state of constant “distress,” some would argue otherwise. If so, this argument is still a judgment on the leadership, not color nor skin pigment.
Mr. Trump is rumored to have said, “Why do we want all these people from Africa here? They’re sh*thole countries? We should have more people from Norway.” Norway declined to help, according to reports.
The facts remain that America can not allow the door to stay open for any nation (not even Norway) if they don’t apply legally. It matters not if the person is white, black, Islamic, or Christian. If they can not be burdened with legally applying, the U.S. should not be burdened with accepting their presence.
That is simply the way that it must be, no matter how many Democrats that fact will anger.
