How foreign media translated Trump's 'shithole' comment

It's been a struggle for non-English speaking countries to properly translate the eloquent diction of President Donald Trump. Especially with his strong, stable grasp of the English language.

This week proved quite the challenge with Trump's reported comment Thursday about immigrants from "shithole countries" like Haiti, El Salvador, and those in Africa. The "vulgar language" tends to lose its meaning if directly translated, so foreign media reached for the right way to convey what the American president was really trying to say.
