President Trump fires back over ‘sh*thole’ uproar: ‘No, I’m not a racist’

President Donald Trump denied he’s a racist amid media uproar over a comment he allegedly made where he called some third-world African nations “sh*tholes.”

“No, I’m not a racist. I’m the least racist person you will ever interview,” Trump told White House reporters Sunday evening (see video at :50).

The president was at the Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Florida. He was walking with House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy to a dinner meeting.

The press has been obsessively chewing its cud over a comment Trump allegedly made during a closed-door meeting on immigration reform with Democratic and Republican lawmakers at the White House last week.

Someone who was at the meeting leaked to the Washington Post that Trump allegedly said of some African countries: “Why are we having all these people from sh*thole countries come here?”

The president has denied the claims, saying it was was “made up” by Democratic lawmakers to push a narrative.

Others corroborated Trump’s statement.

The president has long called for a merit-based immigration system, so the United States can select who to let into the country. That’s exactly what happens at workplaces, universities, and sports teams around the world every day — you pick and choose whom you admit based on qualifications; you don’t just take anyone off the street to work at your company, study at your school, or play for your team.

House Democrats John Lewis and Maxine Waters vowed to skip Trump’s first State of the Union address on January 30 to protest his alleged racism. It’s unclear why liberals are having yet another apoplectic fit over something Trump allegedly said, since they’ve already called him a “Nazi” and a “white supremacist.”

If you think someone is “Nazi white supremacist,” why would you be upset if he called some third-world countries “sh*tholes?”

Not surprisingly, lawmakers (both Democrat and Republican) who have condemned Trump over the “sh*thole” remark have themselves made similar comments in the past. Where was the media outrage?

Democratic Senator Dick Durbin called President Trump a racist for saying he wants to end chain migration.

Meanwhile, Durbin supported ending chain migration in 2010 (see video):

Moreover, Dick Durbin thinks all black Americans are offended by the term “chain migration” because some of their slave ancestors came to the United States in chains. (You can’t make this stuff up.)

For the record, chain migration is when immigrants from a particular city or town bring extended family members over to the U.S. through a loophole in immigration laws than enables them to “sponsor” large numbers of relatives.

Of the 33 million people who immigrated to the United States between 1981 to 2016, about 20 million (or 61%) came through chain migration, according to the Center for Immigration Studies.

“Of the top immigrant-sending countries, Mexico has the highest rate of chain migration,” CIS reported. “In the most recent five-year cohort of immigrants studied (1996-2000), each new Mexican immigrant sponsored 6.38 additional legal immigrants.”

Remember that this doesn’t include the large numbers of illegal immigrants who sneak into the U.S. over the southern border or people who outstay their visas.

Meanwhile, here’s what some African-Americans said about Durbin’s manufactured outrage over Trump’s “chain migration” stance.

“Just for the record as a black man, I’ve never heard a single black person ever link the term ‘chain migration’ with slavery. Dick Durbin is a liar,” one man said.
