Outrage Erupts Over Trump's 'Shithole'

The relationship between Donald Trump and controversy grows stronger day by day with his irresponsible and racial remarks. Even after becoming the President, he did not refrain himself from flaring up an outrage among masses and international officials with his opinions and views. Immigration reforms have been one of the top challenges for 2018 for the U.S. President Donald Trump. During an Oval Office meeting on the bipartisan immigration deal, he remarked that the country does not need immigrants from ‘shithole’ countries. In this remark, he referred countries like Haiti, El Salvador, and African nations. His comments led to a huge public ire across the world.

Trump also opined that the country should have more immigrants from countries like Norway. This comment came following his meeting with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg. According to a White House official, the President also encouraged immigrants from Asian countries from which the U.S. will be benefited economically. His immigration policy reform is likely to be focused on encouraging educated immigrants, especially from Europe and Asian countries with good technical skills and eloquence in English rather than those from developing or poor countries. While being asked on the irresponsible remarks from the President, the White House did not deny it, rather covered it up by stating Trump would “always fight for the American people.”

Paul G. Altidor, the Haitian ambassador to the U.S. expressed strong condemnation to Trump’s comments. He said, “The president was either misinformed or miseducated about Haiti and its people.”

Mr. Altidor also outlined that the Haitian embassy has been receiving many apology emails from Americans about the President’s slur.

Trump’s comments met with discontent from some democrats and republicans. They could also lead to another twist in bipartisan talks on immigration. Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-Ill.) said the remarks would affect the trust people have on immigration discussions. He added that Republicans do not believe in immigration. Their agenda has been about favoring the people of color and keeping others outside.

Some republicans were taken aback from the remark, and expressed their angst. Rep. Mia Love (R-Utah) has her family from Haiti. She said, in a statement, President’s comments were “unkind, divisive, elitist, and fly in the face of our nation’s values. This behavior is unacceptable from the leader of our nation.”

Trump made an announcement on Monday, stating that Salvadorians who have Temporary Protected Status (TPS) in the U.S. since 2001 need to leave the country by 2019. Carlos Calleja, who will run presidential election in El Salvador asked people to be united and not to get distracted. He highlighted the relationship with the U.S. as special and historic. He asked people to focus on issues that need to be addressed immediately.

However, some were unaffected by Trump’s recent remarks, as they considered this as another remark for his stance on minority groups and some foreigners. Trump has been called Muslims ‘terrorists’ and Mexicans ‘rapists’.

“We know who he is, and what he says doesn’t surprise anybody,” said Marjorie Villefranche, the Director General of La Maison d’Haïti, a Haitian community organization based out of Montreal. She added that this is a racial comment and irresponsible because it encourages discrimination.

The irresponsible remarks by the President lowers respect for not only him but also for the U.S. This derogatory language has indeed affected U.S.’ ties with foreign allies.
