FTrump: It Was Legal Immigrants That Made America Great
We just can’t get enough of Donald Trump and his wacky antics. Speaking in New Hampshire, Trump declared that legal immigrants were what made America great.
“Oh, illegal immigrants are the backbone of our country? I don’t think so, darling,” Trump replied. “I don’t think so. I don’t think so. No, I don’t think so. They’re not the backbone.
“Let me just tell you something. Let me just tell you something,” he added. “You know what the backbone of our country [is]? People that came here, and they came here legally — people that came here to this country legally, and they worked their ass off, and they made this country great.”
The Hill reports:
Trump suggested the questioner was planted at his rally by Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, who favors a more lenient policy on immigration.
“Who told you to be here? Bernie? No, no, this is a Bernie plant. This is a Bernie plant,” he said.
