More info from Time Magazine, the plan he was commenting on when he "allegedly" referred to shithole countries.

Do any of you work besides some South of the Boarder "Engineers"? My experience was finding these degreed Engineers were no better than home appliance repair men, technicians. Just my observations, but if you bring in this level of immigrant workers, we failed and those jobs are already taken.

why are they leaving nigeria if it's not a sh!thole? is anyone leaving anywhere else to go there? what is their immigration policy?

seems like a merit based system would take a bachelors degree or higher into account...

and FYI 100% of americans are american citizens whereas zero percent of nigerians are...no need to add to that 67%...the 43% can still apply and get in line w everyone else...

a bachelors degree isn't necessarily a shoo in, we got thousands here w useless degrees that can;t find work as it is...maybe set the bar at something like "we can't do without you" ....

Spoken by a guy with no college degree, zero noteworthy professional achievements and who would be screwed without his wife still working.

And how do I know you have zero professional achievements? If you did, sure as the sun comes up in the morning, you'd be screaming for attention saying look what I did!!! You know, kind of like how you feel the need to brag about your ski racing and mountain biking results, which absolutely no one gives a s*** about.

One thing is for certain, if a merit based system were in place, you'd occupy the last spot in line to get into one of Trump's s hole countries, nevermind the US.

Clear proof that it's a shithole lies in the fact that I'm contacted several times a month minimum by Nigerian princes who want help transferring their funds to the US before they come over here, and they're willing to pay a significant percentage of their money to me in return for my assistance.

actually, there was this whole huge frontier that we needed to populate and control...and there were rules for admission...just give up already...

from your nigeria link...

immigrants make up only 0.7 per cent of the total population.

I don't "hate" you hatter.

People of your and Trump's character are just so disappointing. It's like you all pretty much wake up each day with a mission of saying inflammatory crap to try and piss people off and also marginalize others that are different from you. You do so under the guise of being Anti PC.

You do it here on Kzone EVERY SINGLE DAY.

Opposing views are fine by me. I learn from them. There are people like Moose who I have different opinions from, but I find I learn a little bit from their commentary. I welcome learning new perspectives.

The difference between Moose and you is that it's clear he's passionate about improving society. Being civil. A respectful human being. He and I have had many back and forths, but I can say he's mostly handled those interactions with class

I can't even come close to saying that about you. You are the polar opposite of people like Moose even though you share similar political positions as him.

I fight people like you not out of hate. And by people like you, I mean folks that not only participate in, but celebrate disrespectful prick behavior towards others. You've never once called Trump out for acting like an asshole. Anyone with a heart should be able to at least condemn a smidgen of his behavior.

The value system I was raised on by my lifelong Republican parents is to fight pricks like you with no common decency.


I will fight assholes like you until I die and it has ZERO to do with political differences

I don't hate you. You're just a prick and celebrate it.
