Whenever Trumpsters say he's only against illegal immigration point to this policy.
If they're on public assistance they're not really pulling themselves up by their bootstraps, rather they're being held up by the government.
Most countries prefer immigrants to be wealthy and well educated. They don't want people who will be a burden, and many have a preference for immigrants from rich countries with have excellent education systems.
Norway in particular is a great example of a country most other countries would be delighted to have immigrants from. Norway is a fantastic country, very safe, excellent social welfare system, very well educated people etc., there's no good reason to turn them away. They're not going to go to a foreign country to cause trouble, take advantage of the public services etc., because the US justice system is based around fucking people's lives up (Norway rehabilitates you) and the public services, welfare etc. in Norway are among the best in the world. The only reason to immigrate from Norway to the US is to make money - generating tax revenue for the US - or because you love the US.
Wanting people from Norway isn't some uniquely Trumpian thing. There are over thirty countries to which Norwegians can freely immigrate to, no questions asked, so long as they have the means to support themselves (i.e. a job or savings).
Trump is a terrible, terrible President, but there doesn't seem to be anything unreasonable about preferring wealthy immigrants.
