And to which Native American tribe do you belong, Donald?

9 ( +12 / -3 )

If you lived in California, Arizona and Nevada, you would understand why.

I live in Arizona. Illegals are illegal. We don't go around speculating that they are also rapists, but then again most of us aren't trying to capture the GOP vote.

This is also such platitude. LoL, the land was "settled" by settlers not "stolen".

Obviously you don't know your American history and we'll just leave it at that.

This is the potential White House candidate on the Republican side, guys. He's in second place next to Jeb only. Yes, that is the Republican party in this day and age -- Donald Trump. I hope he gets it; he's already solidified Latinos nation-wide against him and is damaging the Republican party beyond repair, so let's hope the GOP are dumb enough to give him the nomination and lose everything instantly.

As for NBC, it's a shame they waited so long. Clearly they were waiting to see what popular opinion would be, as they indicated three days ago they would still go ahead with Miss America, etc. Now it seems that with Donald's unpopularity rising NBC has finally made a good decision (they usually don't).

How about preventing terrorism in the USA like what happened in Charleston recently. Oh, that was a white racist. Maybe we should admit that many whites are terrorists and need to be sent back to where they came from as well. That would reduce crime significantly.

The shootout, which began shortly after midday in a shopping center, involved 200 gang members, nearly 100 weapons – including guns and knives – and hundreds of shell casings left behind on the blood-stained parking lot floor. Nine dead and 18 injured.

This was a clash between white biker groups in Waco a couple of months ago. All those dudes need to be sent back. Trump, make this your next cause. Sending back white terrorists and thugs. I am sure the white Tea Party types would be 100% behind you on this one, at least the ones that are not terrorists themselves.

People definitely promoted the idea that Italians shoiuld be prevented from entering the US because of the Mafia. Also anarchism and socialism.Italians were the Mexicans of the late 19th century. In 1891 a mob in New Orleans lynched eleven Sicilians after they were found not guilty of shooting the local Chief of Police.

poinof view, here are his words:

When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.

They're rapists.

SuperLib: I live in Arizona. Illegals are illegal. We don't go around speculating that they are also rapists, but then again most of us aren't trying to capture the GOP vote.

bass: I have never met a liberal that wanted a closed border or sovereign nation. You guys would love if America were just a complete borderless nation.

You said I would understand if I lived in Arizona. I told you I live in Arizona. Now I suppose I'll just waive goodbye to you as you run for the door.

People like to have a whipping boy to make themselves look smart and reasonable.

Unfortunately, for Trump he makes it easy.

3 ( +7 / -4 )

Wow, but this just gives him a bigger support base among the tea party types. He may soon be the front runner ahead of the lackluster Bush the 3rd. Trump is polling second now. He may just win the republican nomination.

3 ( +3 / -0 )

No one promoted the idea that Italians should be prevented from coming to the USA because of the Mafia. This immigration fixation by the right is based in racism as the focus is on very select groups. Mostly those whose skin is darker, not by chance that is.

3 ( +3 / -0 )

The man's hairdo talks a lot more sense than he does.

3 ( +3 / -0 )

I think his main issue is that tens of thousands are heading to the US illegally and committing crimes when they arrive. Which they are. Hes right about not letting anyone with two legs and a heartbeat in. Theres a process.

He can easily say what you said without saying that Mexico is "sending" rapists over to go after our women. It comes across as sounding like Mexican men have some kind of proclivity for rape.

3 ( +4 / -1 )

And to which Native American tribe do you belong, Donald?

Right, unless you're 100% Native American, your ancestors came from somewhere else.

2 ( +4 / -2 )

I think the thin air way up there in Trump Tower has affected his brain !

2 ( +2 / -0 )

He just called Mexicans rapists and shot up to 2nd place in the GOP polls. They love that kind of talk.

But of course if the Latinos vote Democrat it's because of the free stuff, not quotes like this from GOP Presidential hopefuls.

2 ( +6 / -4 )

This is the potential White House candidate on the Republican side, guys. He's in second place next to Jeb only. Yes, that is the Republican party in this day and age -- Donald Trump.

Spot on. The Republican Party has become just fodder for the late-night comics. I mean between Trump, Cruz, Perry, Walker, Santorum, and Huckabee it seems like a daily contest as to who can say the dumbest thing. If Hillary gets the nomination, she would be crazy to debate any of them. They have nothing intelligent to say, so you are just giving them a platform to spout their nonsense.

2 ( +5 / -3 )

It is going to take major surgery to remove that foot from trumps mouth, probably only for him ram the other in.

2 ( +3 / -1 )

Apparently... money does not make you smart.

But for me the scary part is, Trump is the second best after Jeb BUSH!?, the Republicans ARE taking out the big guns for the next elections then...hohoho

2 ( +2 / -0 )

He's not at all serious about running for POTUS. It's just a publicity stunt. He would likely send the United States into another major war with more and more loss of life and property.

2 ( +2 / -0 )

You guys would love if America were just a complete borderless nation.

Back in 1846 to 1848, there was no border between Mexico and America because America was keep expanding into South. Now Mexico turn for sending human wave over taking back the lost lands such as Texas and California. Florida is speaking Spanish instead of English including Jeb Bush.

So you basically mean to send illegal Mexicans back and send American born citizens home and put them under house arrest?

If the American born citizens committed crime against minorities such as African and Latinos, he or she should be locked up forever because it is crime against humanity. Obama sang the song of Amazing Grace for Charleston Victims. He will not tolerate for his fellow Americans being slaughtered as animals anymore.

President Trump... hmmm ... maybe not.

Just helps me get my boys and girls elected.

In a rambling 45-minute speech, Trump said: “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best.” - article

Shortest Presidential Campaign Ever.

Trump has that pompous ignorant jerk act down pat. The rambling 45-minute speech was a product of hubris, manure and old age. "Trump's Truth" stinks of the prejudice only Billionaire's narcissism can muster.

Is he going to have David Duke as his running mate?

Another story recently was that members from MS13 (Honduran gang members) were rounded up in North Carolina (30 of them) on charges of things like murder, drugs, robberies and gun possession charges.

Marasalvatrucha 13 are originally from El Salvador, not Honduras right Alphaape? Anyways, this is what's scary. Gangs like these who cross the border. There are lots of honest & hard working mex/latinos crossing the border, but lots of dangerous ones as well.

I think his main issue is that tens of thousands are heading to the US illegally and committing crimes when they arrive. Which they are. Hes right about not letting anyone with two legs and a heartbeat in. Theres a process.

There's no doubt that people who cross the border illegally are breaking the law, the problem is that many politicians then go on to make a nasty untrue caricature that most of these illegals are committing heinous and horrible acts. That is the part that is offensive and a down-right lie, because while some commit crimes, most of them don't....Also net illegal immigration in America has been zero for a very long time

1 ( +2 / -1 )

Keeping the American people, and the world relatively ignorant as to what the U.S. military excursions were doing in Central and South America beginning in the 1900's can lead someone to shame the dispossessed of global capitalism from the corporate empires.

His speech was televised by news channels in USA. He yelled all Mexicans in USA are killers and rapists. He did not mention illegal Mexican immigrants.

1 ( +2 / -1 )

Maybe he could put together enough investors to buy NBC....how many billion is it worth anyway ??? Seriously, though, whether the news division can cover him now or not there is an obvious conflict of interest with the network, Donald Trump and his Miss Universe/Miss USA pageant.

Trump couldn't be a worse Presidential candidate than Romney or Insane McCain.

The irony that some gaijin, xenophobes in their own nation, have chosen to live in one of the most immigration averse nations on the planet. As if the majority here welcome you.

There are Japanese living here illegally. They're rapists. There are Canadians living here illegally. They're rapists. There are Russians living here illegally. They're rapists.

Technically, you can't tell me that none of them are rapists, so that's not an incorrect statement. I'll go ahead and add that to my announcement for a presidential race.

Dear Donald J. Trump, YOU ARE FIRED!!! (Carlos SLIM, a MEXICAN and the RICHEST man in the world just FIRED Donald!) Boy oh boy! If feels good to see KARMA in action!!!

In a rambling 45-minute speech, Trump said: “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best.”

This statement is unfortunately factual. I heard that only as few as 6% of Mexicans that immigrate to the US either legally or illegally are educated. That isn't to say that many are decent people with the exception for their lack of respect for US immigration law.

He added: “They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.”

The last sentence is factually incorrect and inflammatory. Not all Mexican immigrants are rapists. Some are but most obviously are not. But don't get me wrong, Trump is a publicity seeking buffoon that doesn't deserve the attention he is getting.

Illegal immigration has had a terrible impact on America is several respects. It is used to help facilitate the drug trade and the profits of drug cartels. It enables human trafficking and profits to those that engage in this dreadful activity. The lack of screening allows criminals to practice their illegal activities in America. But most importantly in my opinion is that it erodes respect for the law. There are now millions of Americans who having failed to overturn the law by legislative means are openly advocating non-compliance with immigration laws. By their example, isn't my disagreement with some other law that I find objectionable also legitimate? Of course it is!

Right, unless you're 100% Native American, your ancestors came from somewhere else.

Wait a minute. Even the native "Americans" came from somewhere else before settling in North America. Over the centuries they fought and killed each other over land too. Possibly displacing the more primitive man that preceded our current incarnation. I get tired of hearing all of this tripe about how the Native Americans got robbed of their land as if they were innocents. They lost playing the same game they played themselves. Many tribes were warring tribes and even those that were not competed for land against one another. It is not how things should have been done; that was the way of the world back then. They lost. Continuously holding a grudge over it isn't doing them or anyone else any good.

Just goes to show that you can't say anything that is politically incorrect without a lot of backlash.

And to which Native American tribe do you belong, Donald?

I, and they, prefer you call us Native Indians, not Native Americans, our tribe name is always best. Just as blacks prefer to be called black, not African American. Would a white person born into a South African family living in America call themselves an African American?

“Mexico has not treated us well. Mexico treats us as though we are stupid people. Which, of course, our leaders are.”

He's got a point

-1 ( +1 / -2 )

If the Donald's ancestors came to this country as part of a human trafficking/drug smuggling operation, he just lost my vote.

Yes America stole the land, but that was over two hundred years ago.

This is also such platitude. LoL, the land was "settled" by settlers not "stolen".

-3 ( +6 / -9 )

@drakedogma,

He didn't say most are. Net immigration fact is irrelevant. Tens of thousands are coming illegally and many are committing crimes. That's a fact. Suck it up. He's right and everyone just doesn't like straight talk. Wake up America.

-3 ( +3 / -6 )

This is an example of what's wrong with America: there's too much political correctness driven by the herd mentality. It's to the point you can't even speak the truth anymore without people whining about racism or discrimination or something of the sort. It's so bad America can't even formulate a culture and defend it. Everyone hates America yet they love it to death--literally!

-3 ( +0 / -3 )

He would get more traction sticking to the economic/jobs impact of immigration. I've never heard anyone go off about Mexican rapists but Americans are definitely fed up with all the illegals who they perceive as getting free medical care, free attorneys and translators for all their broken laws, free education and subsidized housing etc.

-3 ( +1 / -4 )

He did not mention illegal Mexican immigrants.

Trump's speech is available at http://blogs.wsj.com/washwire/2015/06/16/donald-trump-transcript-our-country-needs-a-truly-great-leader/. His mentioning Mexico and the border is referring to illegals who are crossing that border.. At least, that's my interpretation of his comments.

-3 ( +0 / -3 )

remarks about Mexican immigrants

To be fair, his remarks were about illegal Mexican immigrants.

-5 ( +2 / -7 )

Tens of thousands are coming illegally and many are committing crimes.

Bringing drugs for a free ride into America is a given, maybe a third to half of illegals from Central America and Mexico ? It isn't really that hard to recruit either forcibly or voluntarily when narco trafficking syndicates control thousands of mile of border....

-5 ( +0 / -5 )

To be fair, his remarks were about illegal Mexican immigrants.

This is so true. After all, if they are coming to the USA illegally, then by the fact that they came outside of the law makes them criminals. That's what people tend to forget. He is not paying by the rules of political consultants. I probably wouldn't vote for him, but be honest, wouldn't you want a leader who may speak the truth, even if it may be a bit too far out, than some smooth talking politico who double speaks and will screw you over.

As far as the late night fodder for TV comedians, you mean that an avowed socialist is running and they don't find that funny since America has long been against that form of socialism that Bernie Sanders stands behind.

-5 ( +1 / -6 )

And to which Native American tribe do you belong, Donald?

This is such a platitude. Yes America stole the land, but that was over two hundred years ago. The USA should be able to regulate immigration and protect its borders without being beat over the head by a European wielding this lame stick. I'm mean, don't you guys have your own colonial issues and immigration problems to fuss over?

-6 ( +5 / -12 )

I think his main issue is that tens of thousands are heading to the US illegally and committing crimes when they arrive. Which they are. Hes right about not letting anyone with two legs and a heartbeat in. Theres a process.

-6 ( +0 / -6 )

@Super,

I don`t think he said the "to go after our women" part. He is right however about many of them being criminals and or causing crime. Like I said, there is process. If you are in Japan, did you come illegally? You can stay if so?

-6 ( +0 / -6 )

And to which Native American tribe do you belong, Donald?

You do realize that the first land grabbers in America were the Spanish don't you? It was not the WASP (White Anglo Saxon Protestants) who started the land grabbing in the Americas but the Catholics from Span. Those very same Mexicans that Donald is talking about some are from native tribes, and others are decedents from those original lab grabbers.

Trump may be blunt and funny, but he is right about those coming into America. Recently, a news station in Seattle ran a story on how 11 convicted sex offenders who were illegal immigrants were released in the Seattle area who were released by ICE after a Supreme Court ruling that requires they be released after six months in jail, if their home country won't take them back. Another story recently was that members from MS13 (Honduran gang members) were rounded up in North Carolina (30 of them) on charges of things like murder, drugs, robberies and gun possession charges.

So you may not like the way he presents it, but in a way he is speaking some truth.

-8 ( +2 / -10 )

Trump is completely right. He said nothing racist or untrue.

This is the potential White House candidate on the Republican side, guys. He's in second place next to Jeb only. Yes, that is the Republican party in this day and age -- Donald Trump.

You know, there would never be a Donald Trump if we didn't have Obama. People are so.

I hope he gets it;

Thankfully, he won't, so we can calm down now.

he's already solidified Latinos nation-wide against him and is damaging the Republican party beyond repair, so let's hope the GOP are dumb enough to give him the nomination and lose everything instantly.

First of all, he's not dating the GOP, making them look silly, perhaps, but other than that, Trump is the one that is making himself look stupid as well as anyone that takes him seriously.

As for NBC, it's a shame they waited so long. Clearly they were waiting to see what popular opinion would be, as they indicated three days ago they would still go ahead with Miss America, etc. Now it seems that with Donald's unpopularity rising NBC has finally made a good decision (they usually don't).

As a former NBC employee, this was a dumb move on their part. The Miss America pageant is one of THE biggest cash cow for that network, the other networks wish they could get their hand on that kind of money. We are talking about over $6 million per episode. NBC could have done a back room deal with Trump, but they wanted to be hard headed by the whole deal. Trump is not being hurt by this, but NBC, not one of their smartest business decisions.

He just called Mexicans rapists and shot up to 2nd place in the GOP polls. They love that kind of talk.

If you lived in California, Arizona and Nevada, you would understand why.

But of course if the Latinos vote Democrat it's because of the free stuff, not quotes like this from GOP Presidential hopefuls.

Funny thing, both Blacks and Latinos know that the Democratic Party is the entitlement party, so yes.

He can easily say what you said without saying that Mexico is "sending" rapists over to go after our women. It comes across as sounding like Mexican men have some kind of proclivity for rape.

No, but a big portion of crimes that are committed are done by illegals and many of them speak fluent native English. They can easily blend in both cultures and go between the Southern border states and from Reagan to Obama NONE of these presidents have done anything to seal the border permanently and Trump said he would, yeah, he talks rough, but people are beyond tired that we get so many people that commit crimes that shouldn't be in the country.

just fodder for the late-night comics. I mean between Trump, Cruz, Perry, Walker, Santorum, and Huckabee it seems like a daily contest as to who can say the dumbest thing.

What's really interesting is that while you can make jokes about Republicans unlike Democrats who are VERY thin-skinned and cannot take a joke, Republicans know it's all part of the territory. Democrats can never take a joke and that does look bad on the Democrats, makes them look more childish then they already are.

If Hillary gets the nomination, she would be crazy to debate any of them.

Actually, the Hillary camp is very nervous if she has to debate any of the Republicans because this time, she can't run or dodge or have the candidates vetted and screened. This is why her campaign management staff were telling her to be forthcoming about everything and she wasn't. So if Hilarry is smart in the sense of the world, she get cracking.

They have nothing intelligent to say, so you are just giving them a platform to spout their nonsense

Besides trying to be more on Obama's left, what is her vision for America? She still hasn't defined herself. Yaaawn.
