Michael Frend responds to President Trumps "Shithole" comments

President Trump used "shithole" to describe other nations that we sometimes get refuges from. This comment is very unbecoming and not presidential. These comments are very detrimental to our diplomatic efforts around the globe. It is very obvious that our president does not understand diplomacy. His random rants are dangerous as they create hatred and distrust towards Americans abroad.
They are also racist comments that basically say we are okay with white immigrants coming to American but not blacks from Haiti or Africa. This is not what America stands for. We are a nation founded and based on immigration. How can we be okay with that type of statement from the POTUS.
We risk becoming the "shithole" nation if this is truly where we are headed with immigration. I am surprised that so far most republican congressional members have failed to stand up against these racist comments made by our commander in chief. Republican Congressman Goodlatte who was present for the comments has made no comment. What type of leadership is that. Sir, you should stand up for what you know is right. I hope for better from you.

Also, in reference to the 6th Congressional district, I find it appalling that the Republican party will nominate by convention rather than allowing the voters to have a voice and choose their candidate. Your party has sidestepped every normal method since Trump came into power. You have become the party of exclusion rather than inclusion.
We are losing our leadership standing in the world. We are falling behind in medicine and education to even third world countries. Just how damaging the "shithole" comments will be is yet to be seen. The GOP needs to correct the President when he is wrong just like you would anyone else.
