Trump mocks 'phony blue wave,' says immigration will carry GOP to midterm wins

Source: NBC News


At White House event honoring ICE, Trump again said Democrats "just don't mind crime."

by Jonathan Allen / Aug.20.2018 / 3:51 PM ET


WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump argued Republicans will win in the midterms because Democrats "don't mind crime" during an event on border control and immigration enforcement in the East Room of the White House Monday.

"I think we’re going to have much more of a red wave than what you’re going to see as a phony blue wave. Blue wave means crime. It means open borders. Not good," Trump said. "We need new laws. We need border laws, we need immigration laws — we need ‘em fast, we’re going to get ‘em. Hopefully the midterms will help toward that end."

Echoing comments he's made on Twitter and at campaign rallies, Trump hammered his political rivals for standing in the way of his efforts to crack down on legal and illegal immigration in advance of November's midterm elections. Though Trump has gone on the offensive against Democrats at a variety of venues — from his frequent stump speeches to a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki last month — past presidents have generally refrained from using the White House as a backdrop for bare-knuckled political attacks.


"We're building the wall step by step, and it's not easy because we have a little opposition called the Democrats," he said. "I guess they just don't mind crime. They don't mind crime. It's pretty sad."

Specifically, Trump targeted Democratic governors and mayors who have opposed efforts to deport undocumented immigrants, and took particular aim at New York Mayor Gov. Andrew Cuomo and congressional Democrats...............................

3. I take great offense to Neilsen using the term "hero" to describe ICE and CBP

The word "hero" in America has been so cheapened since 9/11 it is pathetic. Every ordinary Joe and June is now elevated to a be-caped, tights wearing ueber-being. This example, however, is particularly egregious. Even in it's now almost meaningless definition the term "Hero" in no way applies to the immorality of these employees following the orders and wishes of trump, his malodorous nazi advisors and those treasonous republicans. Sickening, just sickening.

15. So True

Part of the propaganda campaign. Every soldier and policeman is a "hero", every rich person is a "job creator". It results in a reality-TV third-rate actor being elected to political office.

19. I agree whole heartedly with your post.

I'm sick of the overuse of that term. There is nothing heroic about separating babies and children from their families and locking them in cages.

4. 'Blue wave means crime. It means open borders. Not good,"'

Let us beware of trump/repug's vicious campaign rhetoric. As outlandish as it seems, it may work.

6. Setting it up so that

 

if the Blue Wave annihilates the GOP, it's fake.

If the GOP somehow miraculously wins big, it's totally real.

8. Ah yes. Locking babies in cages, his famous immigration policy.

That will certainly carry the bloodsucking monsters of the GOP to midterm wins.



Btw, I truly hope that the dems remember to announce this loudly EACH and EVERY day until the midterms!

11. Trump's immigration policy is one of the things that will cause the blue wave to happen

Not sure if Trump knows this, but some of the shit he's doing is really starting to piss people off.

18. Along with....

his constant lying and projecting, he also has a tendency to hint about information that he possesses and "telegraph" pending actions. What should be a real concern is that Putin has assured him that there will be, in fact, a "red wave". Their ability to infiltrate and compromise election systems is extremely frightening.

21. We already know that Putin is hard at work to make that happen.

Coming soon to your Facebook/YouTube/twitter etc., will be a flurry of SHOCKING alerts!!11!! BOMBSHELL 'news' stories!!11!! "Mary Johnson" describing how she almost got snuffed by MS-13!!111!!! Pictures of BROWN PEOPLE with HORRIFYING CAPTIONS!!!111!!

25. I really wish the Dems would bash him with his own history.

All of our forefathers were immigrants to a degree, but most of them didn't run whorehouses. Just shows 'family values'. Passed on from his grandfather I guess. Money at any cost. No morality, just money.

Most all of my ancestors were farmers. 99% of all immigrants to the US aren't gang-bangers and murderers, neither then nor now. They're hard-working people who want a better life for their children. Just like my ancestors.

I do oppose illegal immigration, but we need more legal immigration.

blue wave with the message "Hey Mr President, the 50s called and they want their racism back!"

Democrats very much care about crime, especially against immigrant babies being thrown in cages at the border.
