Six stabbing deaths in London this month already due to black on black crime.

Perhaps he cancelled because London has become another shit hole?
He bought a Golf Course by Aberdeen, there are few shittier shit-holes in the UK than there!

He didn't cancel because of black on black crime, which while it is a problem, it is not a huge problem. There is probably much more unprovoked violence commited by the white population. I am not sure why you have once more chosen to inflame the debate by bringing it down to your bigoted level.

London might be a shithole, but its one of the greatest shitholes in the world and as a Londoner I can take that.

Calling developing countries shitholes is not diplomatic or statesmanly in anyway. Especially when more then 14% of the US is living on or below the poverty line. It show disregard to nations that would desperately like to attain living and health standards of the west, but due to many factors are being held back.

Not at all, thats nothing to do with being PC. How is it diplomatic to call a developing country a sh*thole? How does that help anybody? Its disgusting language and shows absolute contempt and disprespect to those countries.

PC gone mad is not calling Christmas Christmas or banning Tin Tin comics.

Being a prize plumb Ahole must just come naturally.

Trump is providing another free opportunity for ANYBODY to appear noble and virtuous, even if they have no virtue of their own.

Lol I think I am interpreting your comment as, you think this is Trump being generous to his supporters by making them all feel on morally higher ground then himself?

What a strange notion.

Haha, it's just too easy.

At least you're not contesting that these countries are indeed shitholes, like baboon.

The vote was 256-164. It now goes to the Senate for consideration.
There was nothing written in the Bill to support Trump's claim " I have personally directed the fix to the unmasking process since taking office".
... just like nothing in the bill negates the claim

I don't think they are sh1tholes, really, I am sure there are some pretty dire places in those countries that could be labeled as so, (shanty towns and slums) and I've personally spent a bit of time in some pretty dire places in developing countries of which I have been more then happy to be able to extract myself from at great speed. But the labelling of whole countries as such doesn't help anyone, it does quite the opposite to encouraging development and helping raise awareness of the problems going on in those countries.

Personally I would say that uneducated and illiterate people would likely agree with Trump on the matter.

Its the same thing as Hollywood fury over "Pussy grabbing", when Trump hasn't grabbed pussy, yet it turns out they have been worshipping Weinstein all along.
What Trump said in a leaked private meeting is simply what others were thinking all along.

Admittedly, the statement is stupidly careless, but I'll give him credit for putting America's national interest first.

So Trump is black? If not, why else would an egotist like him care about black on black crime?

Not that it's worth the reply, but you know for a fact Trump didn't grab anyone by the "pussy" without their consent?
