Trump: Media Ignores American Families "Permanently Separated" From Loved Ones Killed By Illegals

|

President Trump said Wednesday at a campaign-style rally in Duluth, Minn. that the media "never talks about American victims of illegal immigration."

"The media never talks about the American victims of illegal immigration," Trump said. "I know them well. I know so many of them. I campaigned with them -- what's happened to their children, what's happened to their husbands, what's happened to their wives."

"The media does not talk about the American families permanently separated from their loved ones because Democrat policies released violent criminals into our communities. We need safety," he said.





"They don't bring cameras to interview the angel moms whose children were killed by criminal aliens who should have never been here in the first place. Not even close," the president said.

Trump's remarks came shortly after he had a protestor who he could not distinguish was male or female escorted from the building.

"Was that a man or a woman? Because he needs a haircut more than I do. I couldn't tell. Needs a haircut," Trump said to audience laughter as the protestor was removed from the event.

Trump also promised that "the wall is happening."

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: But the media never talks about the American victims of illegal immigration. I know them well. I know so many of them. I campaigned with them -- what's happened to their children, what's happened to their husbands, what's happened to their wives.

The media does not talk about the American families permanently separated from their loved ones because Democrat policies released violent criminals into our communities. We need safety.

(BOOING)

We need safety.

They don't bring cameras to interview the angel moms whose children were killed by criminal aliens who should have never been here in the first place. Not even close.

(APPLAUSE)

They don't want to talk to the angel mom.

But as your president, I will always fight to protect American families. Always.

(APPLAUSE)

I will always fight for an immigration system that defends our borders and takes care of our sovereignty as a nation.

(APPLAUSE)

I will never sacrifice the safety and security of the American people. And I will never be silent in the face of vicious smears and attacks. And the heroic agents and offices of ICE and the Border Patrol who save millions, just the job they do; save thousands and thousands of lives, and are so brave, and are so tough.

(APPLAUSE)

If you want to create a humane, lawful system of immigration, then you need to retire the Democrats and elect Republicans to finally secure our borders.

(APPLAUSE)

Because we need Democrat votes. We have a majority of one in the Senate. We need Democrat votes in the Senate. We need additional votes in the House.

We will have the greatest borders, the greatest walls -- we've already started -- but it's a lot tougher than it needs to be. We need Republicans to get out and put Republicans in.

In case -- in case you don't know, in the Senate, we need, unfortunately, 60 votes. We have 51 votes. We need Democrats. They will do anything to obstruct, anything to make it as uncomfortable as possible. Because they think it's good politics. I actually think it's bad politics. We will see very soon.

(APPLAUSE)

We're building it. We are building the wall. That wall is happening.
