Fun fact: Norwegians emigrated to the USA at a rate 42.8 times greater than Americans moved to Norway in 2016, 21.4/100,00 vs. .5/100,000.

I guess they haven't heard the USA is a shithole.

Actual Norwegians, or Muslims passing through?

Could also be that it is really difficult to immigrate to another country, legally, unless you already have a job set up. And the US is a far bigger country. So I bet it's far easier for a Norwegian to find a job in the US than vice versa.

Also, the next Scandinavian of any sort I see who has anything good at all to say about the US will be the first. So I am pretty sure our shitholery is well established over there

U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham didn't directly confirm President Donald Trump's use of the term "shithole countries" but did say Friday that he made his feelings known to the president about something negative he'd uttered.
Turns out Graham was just projecting.

'
Highly unlikely that it's Muslims passing through, since they'd be the ones most helped by Norway's massive social safety net. Far more likely it's the wealthy who are emigrating to escape high taxation.

So it's not a racial thing at all.

Trump wants more immigrants of his own social class.

He wants immigrants with education and skills appropriate to our economy in the 21st century. You seem to be stuck in the past, the reality is importing millions of "poor, huddled masses" is likely to result only in more poor people and more poverty. And poor people tend to have children who are also poor.

It's not 1900 any more Abdul.

Trump himself is a hypocrite on this issue, but that doesn't affect the real argument either way.

Go back before that bit and read what I said.

You didn't really say anything as far as I can tell, just hint at various conspiracy theories.

Only parts of the US (like parts of CA) are truly shit holes WildCat.

Was there a demographic or racial breakdown of that data?

As a percentage of each country's population. In absolute numbers though, more Americans moved to Norway.

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nati ... story.html
Emigration from Norway to the U.S. hit its peak in 1882 when almost 29,000 mostly poor Norwegians crossed the Atlantic. In 2016, however, only 1,114 Norwegians moved to the U.S., while 1,603 Americans moved to Norway.

That's where I got my numbers from. Absolute numbers are meaningless when the USA has 60 times the population of Norway.
