U.S. President Donald Trump caused another global controversy last week by allegedly referring to countries such as Haiti and El Salvador, as well as unspecified African nations, as 'shitholes.' The comments, made in a meeting with lawmakers at the White House, were dismissive of potential immigrants from these countries, and have been widely condemned as racist and divisive by the global media.

Now people from these so-called 'shithole countries' have spoken up, highlighting their acheivements and individual worth in a series of tweets that have since gone viral, thanks to their inspirational and often hilariously biting comebacks.

Because come on, no matter what your opinion may be on a country, its culture, religion, government or whatever, dismissing millions of human beings as having somehow less worth than others because of where they are from is just not cool. Not from a regular guy on the street, and certainly not from the President of the United States.

These tweets show that every individual person is different, has their own qualities, and are capable of overcoming adversity to rise from the 'shithole' and make themselves into incredibly inspiring and successful people. Exactly the kind of people that made America great in the first place!

Scroll down to check out people's reactions below, and let us know what you think in the comments!

She's being educated here in the US. And, when the word sh*thole is used in ref to a country, the finger is being pointed at the government. A government that has allowed (or been so greedy) their nation to become what it is. Venezuela is a prime example.

I lived from the age 5 in a shithole country it's name is the "great Usa"! My daddy had to work well in in to his eighties to be able to keep mother and himself in their house. Yeah America is great for the billionaires not for the working class. I've come back to our country were u retired at 64 for women and 65 for men. We have a great social service, wonderful public hospitals, good public transport throughout the country and to all of Europe. My parents immigrated from Switzerland and I'm happily back here for the past 47 years. So of course America's old age pensions are not up to the standards here nor is all the social benifs, schooling in most states, we don't have ghettos, and we have taken in refugees from countries were wars are/were made by the great Usa government over the years. So your joker from Batman's comics Trump has a lot of work to ever make a country that doesn't take care of it's own citizens. Good luck to u poor souls living in the States.

Want to know why? because one of a traits of Shit Countries is Academic Corruption - so how about giving me a break about: 1. degrees, masters, diplomas obtained in your country - some of this people barely had time to breath getting all of those at the same time 2. languages you "speak" but aren't certified in internationally 3. future this or that 4. any NGO membership Seriously people, stop talking everything at face value

This whole thread misses the obvious point that exceptions are NOT rules. The general influence of people from third-world countries is tainting what's good about America. It's not racist to want quality of life maintained. Imagine gangsta rap music being the new theme of American government. People would beg for the original Founding Fathers and dignity. In a converse way, it's the same as claiming that a criminal like George Floyd represents all blacks, since the riots in his name have just made blacks look worse.

Only Dick Durbin, a known liar said what supposedly Trump said. No one else heard Trump say it. People they said there was profanity and was used by many people, even Democrats. The main stream never says that they just keep pushing falsities. People believe the main stream media and never checked the news they heard.

First of all, the "shithole" word was invented by Fake News. And secondly, yeah, you're a doctor whose degrees are from a "not known for their cleanliness or intellect" country. If these commenters were honest, they would admit that they would not seek healthcare from your country.

Her point is solid and she has every right to be here, we should be glad to have all types of immigrants. What I don’t understand and won’t accept is the fetishization and thievery of hair from Asian and Latin women. This girl cares so much about respect and equality when it comes to herself (as she should) but has no problem appropriating from marginalized women across the globe and stealing a look and style that does not belong to her. It is so unacceptable.
