While you are entitled to your opinion, there are realities we have to face in this world. Just look at the picture of the house you posted, I don’t know if you can live there, but I can’t. And believe me, they don’t look that pretty in real life.

I have spent over 2 decades in an African country as someone with African parents. The situation in those countries is very bad and deteriorating every day. Charity is not really making any significant change. Did charity unleash prosperity in the USA? Who gave aid to the USA for it to become what it has become today? Yes, the USA is not perfect, but it is one of the best in this world.

I believe remarks such as those of the POTUS will spark up people living in those places to stand up and reject mediocrity. Somebody has to call a spade a spade. We can only hope that it creates intolerance for poverty (and penury) and triggers the desire to have a changed society in such places.
