Everyone knows President Donald Trump is cracking down on immigration, and this week, that included deciding that nearly 200,000 El Salvadorans who have lived in the United States for a decade must go back to their country. Trump, though, didn’t stop there, of course. There was a meeting in the Oval Office about immigration on Thursday, and when discussing Haiti and African countries, Trump allegedly said “Why are we having all these people from (EDITOR’S NOTE: We’re sure you know what word he used. Click a link if you don’t. We’re going to show a bit more tact than he did) countries come here?” The White House, for their part, didn’t deny he said it, releasing a statement saying “Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people.” For the American people, and for Scandinavia, apparently. In the same meeting, the President also reportedly asked why we couldn’t get more immigrants from countries like Norway, which sounds randomly specific. Hey, maybe he has a secret affinity for fjords?
