Donald Trump wants the United States to take in more people from Norway. The problem is: there are now more people leaving the United States for Norway than the other way around.
And for good reason. Norway is a country which, like other Scandinavian social democracies, has a stronger middle class, a higher life expectancy and a more vibrant democracy than we do. The government there provides universal and virtually free health care, free college tuition, and strong pensions. In other words, it has a governmental system that tries to represent all people, not just billionaires. Last year, Norway soared to the top slot in the World Happiness Report. The U.S. was 14th.
