Analysis | Norway was once the kind of country Trump might’ve spit on. Now its people don’t even want to come here.

—After telling lawmakers in an Oval Office meeting Thursday he doesn’t want more immigration from “shithole countries,” President Trump said the United States should bring in more people from countries such as Norway instead.
—In the history of international migration to the United States, it was a deeply ironic statement. (Many have also called it racist, because Trump used the vulgarity to describe Haiti, El Salvador and African nations.)
