President Trump claimed without any evidence that women migrating from central America to the U.S are raped at levels nobody’s ever seen before’ President Trump is raking up his old claim that “some immigrants are rapists”
Trump said at a roundtable event Thursday in West Virginia, referring to his 2015 speech announcing his presidential run.
“Remember my opening remarks at Trump Tower, when I opened, everybody said, ‘oh, he was so tough.’ And I used the word ‘rape,’ ”
“And yesterday it came out where this journey coming up, women are raped at levels that nobody’s ever seen before. They don’t want to mention that.”
President has wanred about a caravan of central American migrants heading toward the United States Mexico border, that caravn stalled in Mexico city on wednesday, with the organizers saying that the number of people made it too difficult to continue. President’s comments on Thursday were his latest decrying illegal border crossings and calling for tougher immigration laws.
Earlier Trump had announced that he is ending all the negotiations with the democrats on DACA and decided to send U.S troops to the Southern Border. President Trump also criticized the so-called visa lottery, saying that countries aren’t “putting their good ones” into the the program. That comment appeared to echo part of his 2015 campaign announcement, in which he said Mexico was not “sending its best people” to the U.S.
Trump also lashed out at sanctuary cities, President said such jurisdictions, which do not fully cooperate with federal immigration officials are intended to protect bad people. he then mentioned tha case of a Kate Steinle, the woman who was shot and killed by immigrant in the country illegally in california in 2015.
President said “Sanctuary cities — it’s the worst, It’s basically a city to protect a lot of people that are bad people. Really bad.”
