(National Sentinel) Owning It: President Donald J. Trump on Friday owned up to tough language he used earlier this week during negotiations with lawmakers regarding an immigration bill, saying that Democrats are not being reasonable in their negotiations with him and Republicans.
“The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used. What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made – a big setback for DACA!” the president tweeted, in reference to the Obama-era Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals program he has rescinded.
The president, among other things, wants to end chain migration, a broken immigration lottery system, and importation of migrants from some of the world’s poorest countries.
“The so-called bipartisan DACA deal presented yesterday to myself and a group of Republican Senators and Congressmen was a big step backwards. Wall was not properly funded, Chain & Lottery were made worse and USA would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime countries which are doing badly,” he tweeted,
“I want a merit based system of immigration and people who will help take our country to the next level. I want safety and security for our people. I want to stop the massive inflow of drugs. I want to fund our military, not do a Dem defund,” he added.
“Because of the Democrats not being interested in life and safety, DACA has now taken a big step backwards. The Dems will threaten ‘shutdown,’ but what they are really doing is shutting down our military, at a time we need it most. Get smart, MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” the president said.
Politicians from both parties, the establishment media, and leaders from around the world have reacted negatively to comments Trump reportedly made during discussions with Democrats in the White House.
‘Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?” Trump reportedly said at one point, as Democrats pushed him to reverse plans to end “Temporary Protected Status” for migrants from nations like Nicaragua, Haiti and El Salvador who came here — some more than a decade ago — following natural disasters.
Others defended the president. Fox News host Jesse Watters said that’s how the “forgotten men and women” of America talk.
