ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia President Trumps dismissal of Haiti, El Salvador and African nations as s-hole countries whose inhabitants are not desirable for U.S. immigration shocked people around the world and provoked swift condemnation.
The African Union Commission is frankly alarmed at statements by the president of the United States when referring to migrants of African countries and others in such contemptuous terms, said Ebba Kalondo, the spokeswoman for the African Union.
The reaction from the United Nations human rights spokesman, Rupert Colville, was uncharacteristically blunt. He described the remark as racist.
In Haiti, people took to Twitter to share pictures of their country verdant green hills, palm trees in the sunset, and sparkling turquoise water.
Hey #S-HolePresident! wrote Harold Isaac. Here is what my #s-hole looks like.
The deputy secretary general of the African National Congress, the party once led by Nelson Mandela, hit back at Trumps comment during a news conference in South Africa.
Ours is not a s-hole country. Neither is Haiti or any other country in distress, Jessie Duarte said.

PS: Best. President. Ever!
Sometimes the truth hurts.
Maybe these countries will finally clean up.
Trump, fixing the world’s problems is all in a days work.
Best pres ever.
Okay, we concur. Your countries are not shitholes. Thus, we are doing the following:
Step 1. Terminate the visa lottery forever.
Step 2. Implement economic investment and educational requirements for immigrants, a la New Zealand.
Now everybody agrees and everybody will be happy.

Dont believe these Lying Leftist Media outlets that proved themselves during the 2016 campaign to be operatives of the DNC and intentional liars. They are presumed to be lying and we should presume what they publish is a lie. The presumption can only be rebutted with the outlet providing clear and convincing evidence they are not lying.
Why dont we follow Trumps lead here on FR? Lets limit posting headlines from these wretched Lying Leftist outlets. If this story is true and has some redeeming value, at least get the story from a reasonably reliable source, not from a known Lying Leftist operative posing as a news organization.
Ours is not a s-hole country. Neither is Haiti or any other country in distress,
Yes, they are or you would not be fleeing them.
Does anybody else remember when the US tried to dock a ship with relief supplies on it in Haiti and the Haitian shirtheads wouldnt let it dock?
Here is what my #s-hole looks like. — Behold.. - Detroit!
I’d like to know what the average IQ is in each of these charming destinations.
Rather than be put off by an obscene slur, one should examine the word.
Shithole....... a place where human excrement is deposited. Expanded, the countries of note are places where human excrement is deposited. That happens to be true
Puerto Rico too, right after their recent flooding.
If they aren’t third world sh*tholes then they
don’t need our help, they can make it on the
There are parts of Atlanta, New York, or any major
city that are sh*tholes and are not safe for anyone.
It’s time to stop paying the danegeld, there is no point
in subsidizing those who hate us.
I’m sure it doesn’t mean anything, but Japan has no natural resources to speak of yet has built a thriving economy and modern society anyway.
Africa has a tremendous and varied amount of natural resources and, well, has been quite slow coming out of the gate.
Just an observation.
I love Trump even more. He was absolutely truthful. Im tired of living these PC lies. Also Trump flushed out the hard core illegal alien lovers in Gramnesty anf Turbin and Flake.. He caught them naked in the spot light. He suckered them in so their voters could see them and detest them like we do. Great week for Trump!!
Puerto Rico was union thugs and Haiti was government thugs.................
Yep, youre right.
