People in Norway, Finland and "places like that" don't want to go to your shithole

Soooo, yesterday you sank to a whole new low (not sure that’s even possible) when discussing immigration policy with lawmakers in the Oval Office. “Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” you said, referring specifically to Haiti and African nations. “We should have more people from places like Norway.”

Ok, I live in Finland, which is basically “a place like Norway”, so I’m just gonna’ go ahead and give it to you straight: No one in Norway – or places like Norway – want to move to your shithole country!

First off, our countries aren’t being “run” by Donald Trump, so we’ve got that going for us.

Plus, we’ve got healthcare. And not only do we have it, but it’s affordable, universal and kick-ass (I paid 130€ for a c-section). Mind blown yet?!?

But it doesn’t stop at healthcare. We also have stuff like the best education systems in the world, maternity/paternity leave and benefits, gender equality, and now we can even buy beer with up to 5.5% alcohol in supermarkets! So it’s no wonder that Finland, Norway and the rest of the Nordics are among the happiest places on earth. I’m telling you Donald, we’re livin’ la vida up in this joint!
