Korie Robertson isn’t one to shy away from controversy. Earlier this year she said she couldn’t stand behind Trump’s remarks on Charlottesville. Now she’s once again speaking out about the President’s latest comments.

Korie Robertson Speaks Up

If you’ve been following me for a while you know I’ve had the great privilege of traveling to Haiti, Ethiopia, Uganda, Somalia, and many other beautiful countries around the world!! I love these countries and their people! Before you read any further, let me say upfront this is not a post for us to all argue about whether or not Trump said the words that have been reported, or what he meant by them. You can do that somewhere else. What this post is about is that in light of all of this perhaps these countries could use a little love and reassurance that we know without a shadow of a doubt that they are full of beauty and goodness and people loved by God and us! Here’s what I’m proposing: How about we send a strong and kind message to the world right now? What if we turn this conversation around to extravagantly show our love by helping mamas and daddy’s in these countries feed their babies, send them to school, and get the medical care they need? What if we helped take care of the orphans and keep families together? The link is in my bio to do just that! You can sponsor a child in one of these countries today and let them know they are loved! Spread the word! I’m on the board of @helponenow so I’ll be watching the numbers of kids sponsored. Wouldn’t it be amazing if I come back to you in a few days and every child in the program is taken care of because of you doing this and telling someone else to do the same?!? This could totally happen! Let’s do this! #strongandkindlove https://helponenow.org

Many Americans were outraged when it was reported last week that President Trump allegedly called El Salvador, Haiti, and all African Countries “shithole countries.” The president has denied these allegations, however, the internet had a field day of outrage over the comments.

Korie Robertson was one of the people who spoke up against the President’s remarks. Though she said she had no intentions of causing arguments or hate, her position is pretty clear. Korie explained that she has traveled to many of these countries, and has seen first hand what they are like. She wrote on Instagram, “If you’ve been following me for a while you know I’ve had the great privilege of traveling to Haiti, Ethiopia, Uganda, Somalia, and many other beautiful countries around the world!! I love these countries and their people!”

Korie then brought up the president, saying, “Before you read any further, let me say upfront this is not a post for us to all argue about whether or not Trump said the words that have been reported, or what he meant by them. You can do that somewhere else. What this post is about is that in light of all of this perhaps these countries could use a little love and reassurance that we know without a shadow of a doubt that they are full of beauty and goodness and people loved by God and us!”

In true Robertson fashion, Korie decided to turn this argument and controversy around for good. She challenged her 1.6 million followers to look into sponsoring children from these supposed “shithole” countries. She said, “Here’s what I’m proposing: How about we send a strong and kind message to the world right now? What if we turn this conversation around to extravagantly show our love by helping mamas and daddy’s in these countries feed their babies, send them to school, and get the medical care they need? What if we helped take care of the orphans and keep families together? The link is in my bio to do just that!”

It’s pretty incredible for Korie Robertson to see a controversy like this and notice an opportunity to do good. Would you ever consider sponsoring a child or family from one of these countries?
