That's what some people on Twitter were asking after The Washington Post reported Thursday that President Donald Trump asked why the United States would want to bring more immigrants from "shithole" countries like Haiti instead of places like Norway.

Trump took to Twitter Friday, denying that he referred to some countries in places such as Africa as "shithole" nations.

There's multiple likely reasons for that.

Norway, with a population just over 5,000,000 people, was ranked as the top nation in the World Happiness Report last March, edging out Denmark as the happiest country in the world, The Guardian reported.

The country has a universal healthcare system that covers all people regardless of their income, place of residence or origin, according to CNN.

Opinion website The Atlantic Sentinel listed other reasons why Norwegians might opt to stay in their country: it's first in the Human Development Index, has an average annual salary of $68,434 and is number three overall in the World Economic Forum's Global Gender Gap Report.

For comparison, the U.S. is 10th in the Human Development Index, has an average annual salary of $52,543 and ranks 45 in the Global Gender Gap Report, according to information compiled by the Sentinel. Also, life expectancy in Norway is 2.5 years higher than here in the U.S.
