While speaking yesterday with conservative talk show host John Fredericks, Donald Trump said that Central and South American countries are sending immigrants “they don’t want” to America while “keeping their good.”
“The ones we are getting are the drug lords, we’re getting the gang members, and we’re getting some people that are fine, but we’re not getting the best and finest from South America, believe me,” Trump said. Trump accused President Obama of deliberately keeping the border unprotected because he wants to “build up the Democrat [sic] Party.”
He also went after Jeb Bush, whom he repeatedly referred to as “George Bush,” and Marco Rubio, for their stances on immigration. “All of them are weak, Rubio was very much in favor of letting them come, letting come and now all of the sudden he’s trying to toughen up,” Trump said. “They say he’s the new John F. Kennedy. Give me a break, this is not the new John F. Kennedy.”
Trump also went on a rant about Bowe Bergdahl, claiming that the U.S. “should send him back” and “drop him right in the middle of those characters and they will take care of him.” “In the old days you’d execute Berghdal, when this country was strong and powerful and meant something, you would execute Berghdal,” he added.
