The man does not have the necessary temperament to be president. He is also plainly a white supremacist.
President Trump grew frustrated with lawmakers Thursday in the Oval Office when they floated restoring protections for immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries as part of a bipartisan immigration deal, according to two people briefed on the meeting.
“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” Trump said, according to these people, referring to African countries and Haiti. He then suggested that the United States should instead bring more people from countries like Norway, whose prime minister he met yesterday.
The comments left lawmakers taken aback, according to people familiar with their reactions.
This comes just after the Trump administration announced the end of protected status for 200,000 Salvadorans currently living in the U.S. after fleeing horrific violence in the country.
Trump also claimed today that “I probably have a very good relationship with” North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. In the same Wall Street Journal interview, Trump declared that “messages traded between a pair of FBI employees who had been involved in the Mueller investigation amounted to treason.”
So he’s ragingly racist, imagining himself as in a positive “relationship” with a dictator, and believes that insulting him is equivalent to treason. And that’s just in the last 12 hours.
