Trump Declares Victory on Immigration as Obama Admits Some Illegals Are ‘Gang Bangers’

President Obama’s admission that some “gang-bangers” are crossing America’s southern border sparked a direct response from GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump, who has been criticized for his remarks on illegal immigration during his official campaign announcement.

Mr. Trump has repeatedly provided additional context to his remarks from June 16th, 2015 during which he addressed the severely detrimental effects of illegal immigration and described some of the issues that are brought to the United States as a result, much like President Obama has done today,” reads Trump’s press release.

“There are few occasions on which I agree with statements made by President Obama, however, his statement today reflects the serious problems associated with illegal immigration and the inability of politicians to secure our borders,” Trump stated. “We must continue to vigorously fight to protect the United States and Make America Great Again!”

Following Trump’s remarks on illegal immigrants from Mexico, Univision, NBC and Macy’s ceased doing business with the billionaire following pressure from Hispanic and political groups. Celebrity Eva Longoria sided with the critics, equating Trump to Adolf Hitler.

Trump’s press release noted the difference in coverage of his statements versus President Obama’s remarks.

“The media and others have attempted to distort Mr. Trump’s remarks and portray him as a racist, when his remarks are far less controversial than President Obama’s. It is our expectation that the media responds to President Obama with the same vitriolic manor for his statement made earlier today. Where is the outcry from the liberal mainstream media demanding an apology from the President?”

Trump’s campaign states many Americans share his position and concerns over the border and that his statements were not intended to be interpreted as racist or generalizing all immigrants.

“It is merely taking a stance on a position that greatly affects all American citizens, our economy and safety, each of which will continue to be cornerstones of Mr. Trump’s presidential campaign,” read the press release.

Mr. Trump adds, “Make our borders strong and stop illegal immigration.”

No word yet from NBC, Univision, Macy’s or Longoria about Obama’s statement.
