Donald Trump’s remark about seeking more immigrants from Norway has a giant problem. No one from Norway really wants to come here and have every reason to stay where they are.

On Thursday, Trump met with Democrats and Republicans in a meeting to discuss DACA and immigration. The meeting soon went off the rails when Trump referred to Haiti and African nations as “sh*thole countries” and declared that he would rather see immigrants from Norway.

“Why do we want all these people from shithole countries,” Trump said. “We should have more people from Norway.”

Well, the people of Norway have spoken, and Trump is not going to like how they responded.

Conservative Party lawmaker Torbjoern Saetre said “thanks, but no thanks” on Twitter.

Norwegian Twitter users and users with connections to Norway also chimed in.

Indeed, Norway’s social democracy is the main reason why Norwegians have largely stopped immigrating to the United States.

Reuters reports:

While hundreds of thousands of Norwegians emigrated to the U.S. in the 19th century, just 502 out of a population of 5.3 million people moved there in 2016, down 59 from the previous year, according to Statistics Norway.

So, if Trump wants more immigrants to come from Norway, he’ll have to make it worth their while, an effort that will likely piss off his conservative base, who largely oppose universal healthcare, free education, gun control, parental leave, etc.

Norway Prime Minister Erna Solberg has not commented on Trump’s remarks.
