    He is one of the nicest and smartest individuals I ever met and my best friend through college. But hey, if you want to think it was all about PC cred, go for it.

    Interestingly, the friend who would have replaced him if he couldn't make it was a neo-Nazi/white supremacist in his teen years.

    Which would be some of those "white" people.

    But, Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Russia all have their own dirty pasts in dealing with indigenous people...some relatively recently.

    The US was just as guilty of doing the same to native Americans.

    You are just confusing them now...............good.............keep up the good work.

    According to Tapper, other sources present at the meeting.

    Ah, good ol' Gatewaypundit and their clickbait 'articles.' First off, your article says nothing about the Norway comment, the topic of this thread. Secondly, from your source:

    “The president did not refer to Haiti as a “****hole” country according to the source familiar with the meeting… though he DID say it about countries in Africa… What happened, the source says, is there was a conflation of two different remarks by the president,” Tapper tweeted.

    Ah, yes, he didn't say it about one country, but he did say it about other countries! This clears Trump, how?

    Own larger piece of land? Why? Is land cheaper in the US? You still giving out 40 acres and a mule? Warmer climate? That's not the big selling point you think it is. Sure doesn't compensate for certain other things.
    You realize you're listing reasons why Americans retire to third-world countries?
    I doubt that's enough to lure many Norwegians. Sure as hell doesn't lure Canadians and we already speak the language.
