Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump stated that on illegal immigration, President Obama is “allowing this to happen. He wants it to happen” on Monday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel.
Trump said, [relevant remarks begin around 2:15] “I brought up the whole subject of illegal immigration, and if I didn’t bring it up, Sean, I don’t think anybody would even be talking about it right now. And now, it’s gotten worse and worse, and we have a president that is grossly incompetent, that doesn’t know what he’s doing. He’s allowing this to happen. He wants it to happen, and nobody understands why. Perhaps he does, and maybe, frankly, he doesn’t even understand why.”
