The political left seem to love trite terms like “speak truth to power” so it is interesting — not really (and certainly not surprising) — that they don’t embrace President Trump speaking at least a basic truth and one that most Americans (and Canadians, and Britons, and Australians, etc.) agree with.
Why do I say basic truth: Because while, perhaps, there is some fairness (not hysterics) in examining the message and the source, go visit Haiti and most, if not all of the African continent … and see how quickly you find yourself biting your tongue trying not to say, What a shithole! At a minimum, at least comparatively: Look at Manhattan, Toronto, Sydney, Oslo, Auckland, Helsinki and compare them to Lagos, Johannesburg, Mogadishu, Accra, Kampala or Lusaka. You’re going to really need to use your best intellectual and mental gymnastics to try to convince sane people that Africa or Haiti are great places. I don’t care how nice the people are, what the potential of the countries and peoples is, what you thought of it when you visited on your last charity mission (a clue in and of itself) … There’s a reason something like a MILLION Africans are trying to flee to Europe, the Americas, Australia, New Zealand and anywhere but Africa.
