Schadenfreude

Trump may have problems attracting Norwegians because:

Norway has higher life expectancy at birth than the U.S., lower rates of infant mortality, low unemployment, and access to the European Union’s labor market (though it’s not an EU member).

Additionally, Norway is the world’s happiest country (the U.S. ranks 14), the place with the most political freedom (the U.S. ranks 45), most press freedom (the U.S. ranks 43rd), and most prosperity (the U.S. ranks 18). Simply put, there’s little economic incentive for Norwegians to immigrate to the U.S.

That’s true not just of Norway, but of all Western European countries that have become more prosperous over the past several decades.

European immigration to the U.S. has fallen dramatically, and the place of European immigrants have been taken by those from Asia, Latin America, and Africa.

Trump may just have to come to terms with the fact that compared to Norway and many other Western countries migration to USA would require too great a drop in living standards.

Meanwhile: I have been reading “Fire and Fury” ($14.93 on my trusty Kindle). I have no way of evaluating the veracity of claims made in the book other than noting that they are more or less consistent with the tone of statements made by Trump himself.
I can barely wait for the movie, meanwhile, I hear an audio version will be available soon.  Possibly read by Hillary Clinton.

A nice refreshing glass of schadenfreude anyone?
