No Country is a Shithole

By Seth Daire

President Donald Trump reportedly questioned, “Why do we need more Haitians?” and “Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” in a meeting on Thursday, January 11th. Hosts Seth Daire and JJ Janflone discuss what happened at the meeting, and how this will have a negative impact on international relations, as well as human trafficking. The Trump administration's position on immigration is problematic even if Trump didn't say everything attributed to him, and a number of people are defending Trump's words as if he said them, which is highly disturbing, and also showing a lack of understanding of international migrations flows, most notably why people migrate. "We need to be better, and looking at the rest of the world, to think more highly of people." - Seth Daire Sources: Trump derides protections for immigrants from ‘shithole’ countries, The Washington Post Trump decries immigrants from 'shithole countries' coming to US, CNN Shithole special, Vox's The Weeds Here are the right-wing media figures defending Trump’s racist “shithole” comment, Media Matters for America The “Shithole Countries”—and the Rest of the World—Respond to President Trump, The New Yorker Ryan calls Trump 's---hole' remarks 'unhelpful' and 'unfortunate', The Hill This is how ignorant you have to be to call Haiti a ‘shithole’, The Washington Post What Really Happened in Congo, Foreign Affairs 11 Incredible Books by Writers from ‘Shithole’ Countries, Electric Literature Photos: Wikipedia and Pixabay
