Two leakers say he used the term "s---holes" to describe Haiti and African countries. However, the only person corroborating that as this is being written is a Democrat. Given that Harry Reid gleefully admitted to lying about Mitt Romney not paying taxes, it's not irrational to question that Democrat's veracity.
We also know that the leakers were willing to hurt the U.S. in order to gain a partisan political advantage. The leakers knew that whether they were telling the truth or not, it would hurt the U.S. and that didn't slow them down a bit. That indicates a lack of trustworthiness.
We further know that the leakers were wrong in that already Jake Tapper is saying Trump didn't attack Haiti in the way the leakers said Trump.The real question, however, that nobody is addressing is why we are importing so many people who are unskilled, do not hold our Western values, and will not assimilate into American life and become productive members of society? Trump's question is the question on the minds of many Americans.
The reality is that Trump probably used coarse language to make a valid point: why are we letting people with no skills and whose allegiance is to their tribe, not their country in when we're keeping people with skills and whose allegiance is to the rule of law out?
In fact, we can easily imagine Trump describing countries like Somalia as hellholes. Interestingly, the use of "hellhole" – which is hardly less offensive than "s-hole" – to describe Haiti and Somalia is common; just check the internet. Apparently, only when Trump uses a pejorative to describe countries do the media go into a hissy fit.
Anyone who wouldn't say that Haiti and Somalia are hellholes is lacking in compassion. The people in Somalia and many other African countries live miserable lives, and pointing that out is hardly an act of evil. The real problem for the Democrats is that Trump is saying what most Americans believe: the role of immigration is to help America, not to help the rest of the world. If someone from Somalia has what it takes to be a good American, by all means, let him in, but that doesn't mean we should be taking pretty much anyone from Somalia while rejecting highly skilled people from Japan or Norway.The fact of the matter is that what the Democrats (and thus the media as well) want is to import a dependent underclass who will vote for them. They care not a lick for poor black Americans, or for that matter, for the immigrants themselves. They want power, pure and simple. I do not know Senator Durbin, but based on his reputation, I would not believe him without independent confirmation, and even then I would look askance at it. What Durbin is trying to do is distract form the actual question Trump asked, and which is on the minds of many Americans. Shouldn't immigration be to help America rather than to help foreign countries?
