“Why Would We Come?” Norwegians Respond To Trump’s Immigration Offer

“Of course people from #Norway would love to move to a country where people are far more likely to be shot, live in poverty, get no healthcare because they’re poor, get no paid parental leave or subsidized daycare and see fewer women in political power. #Shithole”

“Why do we want all these people from Africa here? They’re shithole countries … We should have more people from Norway.”

Residents of shitholes may not be welcome in the US, but as president Trump said yesterday, when it comes to Vikings, America’s customs gates are wide open. But do Norwegians feel the same about emigrating to the US? As Reuters observes, many citizens of the Scandinavian nation appeared lass than enthusiastic on Friday by Trump’s suggestion.

The Nordic country, one of the richest in the world by GDP per capita thanks to its $1+ trillion government pension fund funded by the country’s oil industry, was last year named the happiest nation on the planet and is known for a cradle-to-grave welfare state. This may explain why so many locals compared the US to a “shithole.”

  1. “America, the mother of ALL shitholes!”

    This president continues to sink to a new low. I have never! But the sad fact of the matter is Trump is the ‘gift that keeps on giving’. People all around the world are in shock thanks to this complete and utter lughead or is he really trying to be this incendiary? I have never known a president to say such things and even given the fact that a goat would have served as a better president than Trump, I still find him to be utterly beyond belief! What the hell will he say next?

    • “America, the mother of ALL shitholes!” I love it. I personally think Trump is way out of his death. Have you ever noticed the way he sits in these roundtable meetings – his defensive posture with his arms crossed? With zilch political experience of any kind, he is definitely the least qualified president America has ever elected.

  3. Maybe we are in an era of inhospitality, in part, because of our debt. Oresident Obama spent more than all previous US presidents combined. This doesn’t excuse President Trump’s words, but maybe logical?

  4. I think the debt issue is a complicated one, PrayThroughHistory, mainly because of the way money is created in the US. 98% of the money in circulation in the US is created by private banks (out of thin air) when they issue loans – either as mortgage, credit card loans or government debt borrowed by the federal government. If all the debt were paid off, there would be no money in circulation to run the economy. It’s my view that private banks should be banned from creating money in this way and this function should be returned to government where it belongs.
