Not only does GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump stand by his remarks about the violent criminal behavior of illegal Mexican immigrants, he doesn’t understand why anyone would disagree.
In an interview with “Fox & Friends Weekend” on Saturday, Trump cited the case of the illegal immigrant who’d been charged in the shooting death of a young San Francisco woman.
The man had seven felony conversions and he’d been deported to Mexico five times.
The case is emblematic of violent criminal behavior by illegals, Trump said.
“Nobody wants to talk about it. It seems like I’m sort of a whipping post, because I bring it up,” the real estate tycoon told Fox News.
“The crime is raging, it’s raging and it’s violent. And people don’t even want to talk about it. And if you talk about it, you’re a racist. I don’t understand it.”
Co-host Tucker Carlson observed that NBC, Univision and even NASCAR were dropping Trump, and that New York Mayor Bill de Blasio is reviewing the city’s contracts with him.
“You’ve got to be losing money because of what you said,” Tucker noted.
“I knew it was going to be bad,” Trump said. “I didn’t know it was going to be quite this severe.”
He added that he was really surprised at NASCAR.
Trump first raised a public controversy at his June 16 presidential bid announcement.
“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending the best,” he said. “They’re not sending you, they’re sending people that have lots of problems and they’re bringing those problems. They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime. They’re rapists and some, I assume, are good people, but I speak to border guards and they’re telling us what we’re getting.”
