VIDEO: Students hate Trump's immigration, border wall quotes, don’t realize they’re from Dems
Such quotes include:
“Illegal Immigration is wrong, plain and simple. Until the American people are convinced we will stop future flows of illegal immigration, we will make no progress.” -Senator Chuck Schumer, 2009
“We simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented and unchecked” -Barack Obama, 2005
“I voted numerous times… to spend money to build a barrier to try to prevent illegal immigrants from coming in. And I do think you have to control your borders.” -Hillary Clinton, 2008
Wanting to know if opponents of Trump’s border wall had opinions on these past quotes from Democrat leaders, Campus Reform's Cabot Phillips headed to American University.
But there’s a catch… the students were told the quotes actually came from President Trump.
Upon hearing the quotes, students said Trump’s words were “dehumanizing,” “problematic,” and “jingoist.”
“I just really think it’s hateful speech,” one student said, while another added, “the way he’s referring to people across the wall is dehumanizing.”
One student said the comments held racist undertones, claiming “there are racial biases deeply embedded in there.”
But this was all before they knew these quotes were actually coming from political idols of theirs.
Not a Trump fan and I know they've done the same thing to Republicans. But i'm surprised the repubs haven't run these quotes into the ground by now. Just another example of team politics and how both sides are more interested in winning than actually doing what's right.
