Wednesday on One America News Network’s “The Daily Ledger,” Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said the United States was “being attacked” by “bad hombres and bad dudes” coming across the U.S.-Mexico border.
When host Graham Ledger asked Trump about “this attack that’s coming to us every day from illegal immigrants,” Trump replied, “You use the word attack, and it is an attack, we’re being attacked.”
He continued, “You look at beautiful Kate [Steinle] and what’s going on like in San Francisco and Jamiel [Shaw] and so many people being killed and hurt badly. And people are coming through the border that are really bad hombres and bad dudes. These are people that Mexico doesn’t want and other countries where they come from, they don’t want them. And in my opinion and the opinion of others the force them over the border. Why should they take care of them. Let the United States put them in their prisons. And worse let them just go around killing people in our streets. So we have got to stop that. We have got to stop it fast.”
“How can you have a country where you don’t have a border. These people walk across the border like it’s nothing. They just walk right in,” he added. “Another four years, another eight years of this kind of stuff, and we’re not going to have a country anymore.”
