On Thursday, President Donald Trump met with a bunch of lawmakers in the Oval Office to discuss his immigration plans for our country. We know, obviously, Trump is not a huge fan of having immigrants come into America–hence his ‘Make America Great Again’ slogan (AKA, white again), and his immigration ban he attempted to issue earlier in his presidency. According to people who were present at the meeting, Donald Trump had this to say about immigrants coming from countries in Africa and Haiti and even El Salvador:
Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?
While I’m not entirely floored or surprised at this comment, knowing Trump to be an absolute racist and bigot, there are those across the country (and the world) who were shocked that the President of an entire country would say something so offensive and rude. While everyone took to Twitter to share their funniest responses and opinions, there were those who decided to take a completely different stance on it–showing Trump that their countries don’t produce sh*t people (like himself). Twitter users began sharing their brilliant, impressive, and noteworthy accomplishments–and they are amazing.
