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!

Marv, you're damn right. People like you and innumerable other immigrants to the USA have always made the country great and will continue to make it even greater. Congratulations to you for succeeding in your goals.

I think it's ridiculous that one man thinks he can fix America. Seeing as how he is tearing apart America and not helping the people. He stirs fear against other countries and races. We as the people, the open-minded people, the accepting people, the people that are willing to let go of the stereotypes that we have been told, the people who put others above their own fear. Only if we let go of our fear, our anger, our prejudice. We need to heal not harm, we need to support not tear down. Then, and only then can America be different. That's all, I an American 14-year-old girl, have to say.

Why are people always trying to come to America if their homeland is so great ? Try staying there and making your own country great.

is america is ur private property? just because ur economy is higher doesn't mean u can tell or do anything to anyone. its funny u ppl accuse north Korea for doing inhuman stuffs i don't find big difference between trump or whoever thinks money matters most. i wish u ppl born in those poor countries and felt the poverty and strong determination to work hard so that some day ur lifestyle changes. i would rather stay in forest than being in country where people will put throne on a donkey just because it has a lotttt of wealth.
