Donald Trump Immigration Conspiracy Theories: Praises ‘Friend’ Xi Jinping | World News


former President Donald TrumpIn an interview aired on Fox News on Sunday, he falsely suggested that Latin American governments were picking up citizens they didn't want and sending them to the U.S. border, reviving a claim that was part of his 2016 campaign. Was the center of the campaign.
He also alleged Chinese Communist Party – without providing any evidence – accused him of plotting illegal immigration to the US and said he believed China would try to interfere in the presidential election, saying he liked the president Xi Jinping “Very”. “He was a very good friend of mine during my tenure,” he said. Asked by interviewer Maria Bartiromo on “Sunday Morning Futures” whether he thought “military-aged people” from China were “being directed by the Communist Party to come here,” Trump said: “I think so”.
Referring to a recent incident in New York City, in which a group of people identified by police officers as immigrants from Latin America attacked police officers, Trump said: “The heads of these countries are smart. They “Not sending people who are doing that.” This is very good work and they like it in the country. They're sending mostly people they don't want, and they're putting them in caravans.” This statement repeats one of the most inflammatory lines from his first campaign announcement speech in 2015: “When Mexico sends its people sends, they're not sending their best,” he said at the time, continuing: “They're bringing drugs… Crime. They are rapists. And some, I think, are good people.” He has also repeatedly and falsely said that migrants from South and Central America are coming from “mental institutions” and prisons.
Trump also spoke approvingly, as he has before, of the military-style mass deportations of Mexican immigrants under President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Mass deportations are part of the extreme expansion of anti-immigration policy that Trump is planning if re-elected.
In a separate interview on CNN's “State of the Union” on Sunday, Trump's last Republican primary opponent, Nikki Haley, accused Trump of “playing politics with the border.” Trump is vigorously trying to kill the bipartisan immigration and border security agreement in Congress. “They should not get involved in this,” Haley said, telling Republicans to wait until after the election because we don't want this to help Biden win. He further said, “By asking them not to do anything he is completely playing politics.”
