Donald Trump says Mexicans are ‘killing us’ in latest inflammatory speech

Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump criticised US immigration and trade policies on Saturday in speeches that veered from accusing Mexico of deliberately sending criminals across the border to professing respect for the Mexican government and love for its people.

Speaking to a gathering of Libertarians in Las Vegas before headlining an event in Phoenix, Mr Trump repeated his charge that Mexico was sending violent offenders to the US to harm Americans and that US officials were being “dumb” in dealing with immigrants in the country illegally.

“These people wreak havoc on our population,” he told a few thousand people attending the Libertarian gathering FreedomFest inside a Planet Hollywood ballroom on the Las Vegas Strip.

    And he would be right.
    Physically, as a libertarian nationstate, as an economic burden, environmentally, and as a demographic.
    Just close your eyes and think of tasty tacos.

    Trump completely destroys this NBC interviewer.

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      I love how he belittles her.
      ‘You wanna get that out?’
      ‘Go ahead get it out.’
      ‘Can they say that word on television?’
      ‘Try again.’

      • lolwut?

        Though it looks like she was getting a little hot and bothered sitting
        listening to him dominate her, money, power, smart…Alpha.

        She was really enjoying it at the end, I’m willing to bet her mate hunting instincts were telling her liberal brain to shut the fuck up
        and get his number.

        • Petey

          Yup, she’s thinking “I hate this guy; I hate this guy … I WANT this guy and I want him now!”

        • I’m not sure women are quite as turned on by blowhards as you assume.

          • BillyHW

            About half-way through the interview she realized that she’d spent years dating a faggot in Keith Olbermann, and this is what a real man looks like.

          • I’m not defending the NBC chick. And, look, Trump is right about this. The politics, I mean. But he’s still Trump. He’s still an undignified, clownish, bullying huckster. If you think he’s a realistic presidential candidate you’re on crack. If he’d been born poor, he’d be travelling town-to-town conning widows out of their pensions. (I stole that from some commenter on Ace, but it’s spot on.)

            I hate this “Alpha male” and “Beta male” nonsense. As if every man in the world, and throughout history, was either A Winner or A Loser. As a man, do you not find this simplistic? Are you certain where you stand?

            Yes, women are attracted to self-possessed guys. Duh. But no woman has ever gotten wet thinking about The Donald.

          • Petey

            I take it you don’t believe him when he says that he’s in it to help America (I’m paraphrasing)? I’m not trying to be inflammatory – just curious what you think his motivations are.

          • This guy says it better than I could:

          • Petey

            “I was somewhat blown away by the realization that a bullshitter like Trump is more authentic than the most down to earth politicians.” Heh – ain’t that the truth, brother. Interesting little post – thanks.

            I agree that alpha/beta labels are overly simplistic – but there is more than a little truth to the idea that there are essentially two types of men. In any interaction between two people, regardless of the gender makeup, one person usually is the dominant one in some sense, the other submissive, if only to a limited extent. Relationships where each person has equal “power” in the interaction, though they exist, are rare.

            But this was the country that voted twice for Obamy. His resume was about as thin as piss on a rock.

          • mauser 98

            Olbermann fired again.. ESPN canned him

          • BillyHW

            I think even Ann Coulter dated him once. At least Ann admits that women shouldn’t be allowed to vote and doesn’t pretend otherwise.

          • lolwut?

            Her behavior near the end says otherwise.

      • BillyHW

        This stupid little girl got a taste of what it’s like on the other side of that glass ceiling. LOLz!

    • Clink9

      That was great. He’s grabbing the ball and running to the other end of the field. Don’t accept the lefty talking points any more.

      • BillyHW

        He’s the only one with the courage to call them out on it.

  • jayme

    Do I think he’s arrogant and has too high opinion of himself? Yes, but I don’t really care – he’s a refreshing change from the various neutered politicians (both Dem and Republican) we see out there. He also makes good sense, and stands up to progressive bullies like the interviewer and even many RINOs. (It was pretty satisfying to see her getting her snooty nose rubbed in her own vacuity.) I hope he continues to hold his ground – I think if he does the support for him will continue to grow.

    • jayme

      Speaking of vacuity (!) – this post was referring to Lolwut?’s clip of Trump’s interview on NBC, in case there’s any confusion.

      National Review is dead to me.

        I read too much crap, generally, including NRO sometimes.

  • WalterBannon

    Trump is the only candidate for republicans to choose

    • El Martyachi

      Assuming women are allowed to vote, do you think he’s electable running against Hillary?
