Gary Lineker had the perfect comeback to Donald Trump’s ‘shithole countries’ quote
Donald Trump isn’t happy about immigration and got frustrated in discussions with lawmakers about people coming to the US from Haiti, El Salvador and Africa.
This is what he is reported to have said.
“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?”
Over to you, @garylineker.
Takes an arsehole to know a shithole.

To which Piers Morgan replied with this.
Indeed he does.
Anyway, here’s more of our favourite responses to Trump’s “shit countries” comment.
.@realDonaldTrump, your mouth is the foulest shithole in the world. With what authority do you proclaim who’s welcome in America and who’s not. America’s greatness is built on diversity, or have you forgotten your immigrant background, Donald?

Genius. Until today, if you Googled “Trump” and “shithole” all you got were hotel reviews.

The latest outrage from President Trump disparaging immigrants from what he calls "shithole" countries is a new low. It's disgraceful for him, the country, and every American.

My family came in 1970. I was one. Even Nixon didn't think I came from a shithole country.

Trump apparently wants more Norwegians and fewer people from ”shithole” countries in Africa. You know what’s a real shithole? Trump’s goddamned mouth.

“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!” This country’s greatness and true genius lies in its diversity.
