Trump attacks Facebook over ‘cheap migrants’: Presidential hopeful says he wants firms to recruit at home rather than ‘flying workers in from overseas’

Donald Trump has launched a personal attack on Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg for letting too many immigrants into America.

The billionaire businessman, who is vying to be US President, said he wanted to force technology companies to hire more Americans instead of ‘flying cheaper workers in from overseas’.

He launched a broadside at Mr Zuckerberg, claiming that the technology chief was trying to push through new rules that would make it even harder than it is presently for Americans to find jobs in the future.


This is a huge and ongoing scandal in the USA, good for Trump for having raised this.

    This is a huge and ongoing scandal in the USA

    And needless to say here too. But no one in our election is mentioning it.

    • Very true, the majority of the TFW program was left untouched and with less scrutiny than the low end labour segment that caught the public’s attention.

      • New Centurion

        It’s the elephant in the room. Despite the government’s vaunted changes to the TFWP, employers are still bringing them in droves in fact there is backlog of applications for TFW…in this economy…for coffee and doughnut servers and other elemental help in places like Ft Mac…yeah exactly. And no one in the MSM or government wants to talk about it or put a stop to it. If Canadians only knew the depths of this “immigration” scam there would be rioting in the streets. Our youth’s future is being sold out to the lowest bidders from India, the Philippines, China and Korea.

          The new ones are all from morroco and other muslim nations.

          I work for one of Canada’s largest corporations, i.e. it’s not burger flipping by a long stretch.

          About 8 years ago a number of my Canadian colleagues were fired out of the blue without cause and replaced by Indian nationals living here. Living here.

          Some have been here the whole time. Others have come on board, living here for years and preventing young Canadians from getting those jobs.

          • The Butterfly

            It’s a total scam and the universities are in on it.

          • What a scam.

          • New Centurion

            I can’t understand why Canadians are not getting upset about this and confronting the government about this program. It is basically an end run around normal immigration channels.

      • Exile1981

        The new trick is to say they are chefs and bring them over to flip burgers. A lot of the new “chefs” are from the middle east and single men under 20 and devout muslims vs. Most of the older unskilled where phillipenes and had families back home to support.

    • Two thumbs up for Trump.

      He hit a central nerve. He is making both the libs and RINOs squirm.

    What blows me away is this: Why has it taken this long? Any number of us have been screaming bloody murder about glaringly obvious social and economic problems that are on the verge of critical mass and have already mass murdered hundreds, if not thousands of innocents:
    – the influx of ignorant, illiterate violent moslem racists
    – ditto the illegal Mexicans in the USA
    – the rise of political correctness and reverse racism fostering an ‘idiocracy’
    – the mainstreaming of sexual degenerates and the destruction of the family
    – the bloating of gov’t and the increasing attacks on personal rights from the left
    Most Republicans are lining up with the fuggin Donks against Trump! I have heard otherwise intelligent conservatives label me and guys like our host as ‘racists’ and nutters. It’s been like this for over a decade now.
    Trump may be too little, too late.

    American tech firms are past the tipping point. They will simply declare that if they can’t import Asian wage slaves they’ll ship the work over THERE.

    • ismiselemeas

      They already have. What the US has, which makes it crucial, are enforceable copyright laws, investment regulation and a culture of innovation. No other country has managed to achieve this which is why it will always be number one. All the CEOs know it which is why they all want in. As the Chinese economy slowly unravels it will become too expensive to manufacture high end goods there, jobs will come back.

  • David Murrell

    Many of us try to second guess Mr. Trump’s tactics. But should he be taking on Facebook (and perhaps other high-tech giants)? They are gods in North America, and perhaps world wide. I take it the highly-esteemed Mark Zuckerberg is a big donor to Obama and other Democratic robbers.

    • All the tech companies engage in the foreign worker fraud.

      • David Murrell

        Yeah, but what I was getting at is how our media and establishment people kowtow to the big tech companies. And think of the huge egos in these big corporations. I like the “Social Network”‘s depiction of Zuckerberg:

        The characterization of Zuckerberg in this movie is a scream.

        At the same time politicians go with the corporations all the time, so that they can get as much money as they can to get reelected again.

    • Bataviawillem

      If I could I would cancel my facebook account right now, but I can’t, I don’t have one.

  • Maurixio Garciasanchez

    Some ideas he is correct ,citizens should be first,look what’s happening here in Canada, big mining corporations are exploring the country at the same time bring in cheap labour any chance for all citizens to work over ther? No

    • Shebel

      What do call cheap labour and from Where?

      • Bataviawillem

        Cheap labour comes from China to B.C. where some companies require one speaks mandarin as a prerequisite.

  • Shebel

    Trump is a Patriot .
    He says all the things that many Americans would like to hear from a Politician.
    Trump keeps the rest of them in line.

    I truly wish that Canada had a Trump, .

    • Cheryl

      So do I but Canada has too high a percentage of beta male faggots to ever produce such a strong and charismatic leader as Trump.

      • G

        LOL !!!!!!
        Perfectly said.

      • Shebel

        Canada has Justin.

  • The Butterfly

    Donald Trump speaks for me.

    • Exile1981

      So your saying he gets the butterfly vote?

      • The Butterfly

        He owns all the butterfly pageants.

    A nation has to have borders. Both literally and figuratively. Societies are constructed upon agreements. Without borders, the agreements are meaningless.

  • Norman_In_New_York

    The H-1B program should be restricted to a labor shortage last resort and strictly monitored. I’m with Trump on this. As for illegals, send the employers who hire them off the books to jail and the problem will be quickly resolved.

  • barryjr

    We have a frenchie running for PM why don’t we recruit Trump to run for PM. Oh wait the dippers and libtards wouldn’t like a foreigner running for PM.

    Trump is to the Americans what Danny Williams was to Newfoundlanders, another wealthy businessman who wanted the best for his people.
