In an interview with a right-wing television network today, Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump warned that America may not survive "being attacked" by “bad hombres and bad dudes” coming into the country through the southern border.
One America News Network pundit Graham Ledger asked Trump whether he would use his “bully pulpit” as the leader in presidential primary polls to address “this attack that’s coming to us every day from illegal immigrants and what we have to do to secure our sovereignty down at the border.”
“You use the word ‘attack,’ and it is an attack, we’re being attacked,” Trump agreed, citing two cases of American citizens being killed by undocumented immigrants that have received a lot of attention from conservative media.
“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 and these are people that Mexico doesn’t want and other countries where they come from, they don’t want them.”
Other countries, he said, are “forcing” these “bad hombres” into America, where they will either go to jail or “go around killing people in our streets.”
“Another four years, another eight years of this kind of stuff, and we’re not going to have a country anymore,” he added.
Trump told Ledger that running for president was “not anything that I wanted to do” but that he couldn’t stand by as “the Constitution of this country has been absolutely riddled with bullets from the Obama administration.”
Ledger, for one, was very impressed by Trump’s self-sacrifice, declaring that the billionaire was doing his “duty” in following his “calling” to run for president, just like the men who enlisted in the military in World War I and World War II.
