Trump on Migrants Throwing Rocks: 'I Didn't Say Shoot'

Source: Mediate

by Tamar Auber | Nov 2nd, 2018, 3:27 pm

On Friday, President Donald Trump revised his statement about treating rocks in the hands of migrants like guns by saying he “didn’t say shoot.”

In response to a question from a reporter about the military firing on rock-throwing migrants, Trump said this: “No, they don’t have to fire. What I don’t want is I don’t want these people throwing rocks.” He then stressed rock throwers would be arrested.

“It was just announced by Homeland Security, you have in just certain areas over 300 people that they know are trouble. What they did to the Mexican military is a disgrace,” Trump further explained. “They hit them with rocks. Some were very seriously injured and they are throwing rocks in their face. They do that with us, they’re going to be arrested, there’s going to be problems.”

Then, clarifying his previous statement, Trump added: “I didn’t say shoot. I didn’t say shoot.”

1. How not to get the Hispanic vote right before an election

Tell the Army to shoot Hispanics. Somebody told Trump that comment was
toxic to having Hispanics vote for any republican.

10. I think he's counting on Hispanics ignoring the election.

I hope everyone gets out and votes.

11. He and the rest of the republican party are in for a very rude surprise

Hispanics, women, gays, African Americans, and the young might very well
bring this one home.

2. The first time I read/heard the "rock" bit out of shit heads mouth...

I was thinking of the extrapolation to throwing rocks at cops, and giving them the silent wink and a nod, to start popping off at protestors.
ala "Don't worry about their heads (on the door of the squad car), just THROW EM IN THERE." (Don Ivan)
As if the police need more leeway to be violent, and justify being "triggered"- literally.
Rocks don't equal bullets. ESPECIALLY when it's the 'proud puds' in the back row slinging the stones, and breaking the windows at marches so the 'cop'pers' can come unglued on the marchers, and claim riotous conditions, and damage to property. (See CHIPS/Proud boys at the BLM marches in St Louis after that kid got gunned down.)

3. Does rump even know that there are women and children in this group of refugees?

It sure doesn't sound like it, or he is ignoring them. Did the Mexican military actually fire at these folks? I kind of doubt it, since what I heard, is that the Mexican people have been opening their hearts and giving aid and comfort to these folks...

6. He knows. He REALLY DOESN'T CARE! He's a sadistic sociopath 100%!

The racist in chief has NO FEELINGS about anyone except himself. He is seriously mentally ill. I doubt he would lift a finger to defend anyone (except maybe Ivanka, the love of his life).

4. If rocks are the equivalent of rifles, Donald is saying don't shoot back for real rifles.

Trump puts our troops in harm's way but denies their self-defense.

5. Yesterday you said.....

"Anybody throwing stones, rocks, like they did to the Mexican military where they badly hurt police and soldiers of Mexico, we will consider that a firearm," Trump said. "Because there is not much difference when you get hit in the face with a rock, which as you know, it was very violent a few days ago. Very, very violent. It was a break in of a country. They broke into Mexico."


Today you said......

'I didn't say shoot!' 'No, they won't have to fire,''I didn't say shoot. I didn't say shoot! But they do that with us, they're going to be arrested for a long time,

7. He is just flopping about like a fish on a dock.

One day the big scary caravan is bringing smallpox, the next day it's leprosy.

The group has people from the middle east, from gangs, real bad guys, all coming up to invade America.

He sends American military troops to the border!

He calls for a shootout on the border and the next day he backpedals once someone points out that would be a war crime.

In between bouts of caravan hysteria, he wants to strip birthrights out of the Constitution, give middle-class tax cuts (an idea that vanishes within 2 days for unknown reasons).

I daresay he's hysterical, and it's hard to understand how even GOPers don't see him as flailing and desperate.

9. He instead lies , again,

Just like he and the gop are doing on the immigration issues , when in late 2015 early 2016 President Obama sought more funding for border security from the GOP controlled Congress and they refused to give him anything for it, and trump claims the Dems are weak , while trump claims we're being invaded when the caravan is 1,000 miles away. Its all lies from trump and the gop now to scare uninformed people that support him with. Just another phony PR attempt , and using the military for it too. this is backfiring badly on Trump and the gop.

13. I understand that the day before elections,

 

Trump is going to keep the Nambian people in the caravan from entering the US with deadly force if necessary because he has been told that they all have the Ebola virus.
