Politicians, advocacy groups react to Trump blasting Caribbean and African immigrants from ‘shithole countries’, by Megan Cerullo.

Social media erupted Thursday after President Trump slammed protections for immigrants from “shithole countries” in the Caribbean and Africa, while some leaders chose to ignore his controversial remarks. …

Former talk show host Herold Dasque told the Daily News … “We are on a higher ground than that.” … “Someone might say the U.S. is a shithole country, too.”

Mexican president makes two obvious mistakes in his fury:

Mexican President Vicente Fox took aim at Trump on Twitter Thursday. “.@realDonaldTrump, your mouth is the foulest shitthole in the world. With what authority do you proclaim who’s welcome in America and who’s not. America’s greatness is built on diversity, or have you forgotten your immigrant background, Donald?” he fumed. …

The NAACP accused the President of falling “deeper and deeper into the rabbit hole of racism and xenophobia” citing “continuous lowbrow, callous and unfiltered racism repeatedly espoused by President Trump.” The organization said that his remarks Thursday marked “a low point” for both Trump and the nation.

Trump was elected which gives him the authority. America was great before “diversity”
