I can’t resist publishing the Trump’s world map as seen by the New Yorker Cartoonist, Peter Kuper, after the Trump’s declarations on immigrants:
The facts : extract from Joseph Cassidy’s paper in the The New Yorker of the January, 12 2018 : « A racist in the oval office »
According to the Times (though it was the Washington Post’s Josh Dawsey who first broke the story ), the Republican senator Lindsey Graham and the Democratic senator Dick Durbin presented Trump with a plan that would cut the current visa lottery program and reallocate some of those slots to immigrants from troubled places like Haiti, El Salvador, and a number of African nations whose citizens have been granted so-called Temporary Protected Status in the United States. The Administration has in recent months begun cancelling the protected status of several groups of immigrants—most recently, salvadorans —and it seems that the mention of Haiti irked the President. When the discussion moved on to African countries, he reportedly said, “Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” And he added that the United States should admit more people from places like Norway.
