When was the last time anyone booked a vacation/trip to Haiti? The conditions there are deplorable.

Too many of the Caribbean islands are in poor condition and are poorly run.

Liberals have this ridiculous dream to bring all the poor people in the world here and the taxpayers that are left working be given the burden housing them, giving them medical care and education. They don't care how much of a strain it puts on the countries resources or how much money it costs the average working person. Do I feel for these people yes but many of them are in dictatorships that take every thing from them. Look at Cuba, look at Haiti years and years of dictatorships. I once heard a Cuban refugee talk about how she didn't like the way things were done here. I though how dare her.... she come out of that Sh**hole and wants to complain about this country.

The "sh*thole" comment was a Freudian slip that was an utter moral leadership failure and also a international diplomacy failure. Our "stable genius" began the week trying to disprove accusations in the "Fire & Fury" book and ended up completely reinforcing them.

I guess it should come as no real surprise that you cannot grasp the implications of the words when the leader of a global superpower throws a temper tantrum and needlessly insults nations we currently have troops deployed to and have members (from those countries) that comprise our society at nearly every level.

I know, I know....you see it as "Trump calls it like it is. Yee Haw."

Are you 100% Native American? Should we as a society accept insulting your country of origin, and your heritage, for your ancestors migrating here to improve their quality of life?

That's because Trump's worst enemy is Trump. Neither one knows what the other is thinking.

These players are being vague on whether Ill Duce Trump actually said "s" hole in his comments. I don't find it difficult to believe Ill Duce Trump was uttering racist claptrap, but it's bothersome that Durbin and the corporate media are apparently dancing around such a central question as, "what did the unfortunate occupant of the Oval Office actually say?"

I meant this post as sarcasm. In my opinion Lindsey Graham is one of the few Republican lawmakers who actually put this country above partisan politics.

Ponder for a minute, in our current political environment, that if this comment was reported by nearly any news media outlet (expect one), it would be discounted as "Fake News". But because it was reportedly heard by fellow politicians, it's just "vague". Hell, the White House hasn't even denied to to date.

And yet Trump was again correct, those countries are crap holes, why on earth would we need to import more deadbeats, last I herd we didnít have a crisis of not having enough people on welfare.

The democrats could care less about those people, they only want them to come here, votes, the democrats require a permanent underclass of voters to maintain their political power, the Clintons managed to funnel millions from the Haitian earthquake relief right into the Clinton family criminal foundation, and no one said a word, the folks they stole the money from werenít white so it was okay.

Seal the border, the country is full, we canít afford to take care of them any more.

No, he wasn't right in calling other countries, and regions where portions of our citizens are from, a "sh*thole". Tell me, what greater purpose did using that insulting term serve? How did it benefit our nation? How did it increase our respect on the global scale? Did it make our nation's military members that are currently serving in these regions safer? Is that type of outburst representative of our nation's highest office? Why was it necessary?

And of course you pair your response with an attempted diversion back to Hillary Clinton. Republicans control both houses of Congress and the White House, yet you cannot get her name out of your mouth. Why?

Well since you feel that way.... no one is making you stay . Why don't you try moving to a real Sh**thole and stay for awhile before you put this country down.
