    A small group of US senators say they reached a compromise on immigration reform, but it has yet to win the support of President Donald Trump.

    According to several reports, Trump made vulgar remarks about Haiti, El Salvador and African countries during the discussions, calling them "shithole countries" and objecting to immigrants coming from there.

    He suggested that the United States should instead bring more people from countries like Norway.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
