By all accounts, the bipartisan negotiations on a DACA deal were at the one-inch yard line yesterday.
But, according to Democrats, that’s when President Trump dropped the s-bomb, potentially blowing the deal out of the water.
As they sat around the table discussing the terms of the deal negotiated by the so-called ‘Gang of Six’, Trump questioned the provisions for legal status for immigrants from Haiti and Africa, given that they’re from ‘sh*thole nations’.
Of course, Democrats needed something, even trivial, to seize upon the opportunity to portray Trump as the bad guy in the negotiations so they can retain the ‘savior’ status.
But it demands a serious question, regardless how crass: why are we encouraging immigration of unskilled, uneducated, uncultured workers just at the moment when we’re climbing out of the ditch from the Great Recession?
Curiously Democrats have no answer except the obvious: more voters.
Here’s more from Breitbart…
President Donald Trump shot down an amnesty plan offered by Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin and several GOP Senators, prompting amnesty-advocates to wreck the amnesty talks by leaking Trump’s Oval Office “sh*thole” description of undeveloped countries.
The report said:
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. Sens. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) and Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.) proposed cutting the visa lottery program by 50 percent and then prioritizing countries already in the system, a White House official said.
