Donald Trump make his mark soon after arriving at the first GOP debate on Fox News. Before the debate even began, the Fox moderators asked any candidates who were unwilling to rule out running as an independent to raise their hand. The top 10 polling GOP candidates were on stage, but only one hand went up: Trump. Then everyone in the crowed BOOO’d him, and the debate began.
Obviously Trump got asked about immigration since he recently said Mexican immigrants are rapists. First, Trump went on to explain how if he didn’t make a comment no one would even be talking about immigrants, then wants to blame the media for twisting his words:
“So, if it weren’t for me you wouldn’t even be talking about illegal immigration, Chris. You wouldn’t even be talking about it. This was not a subject that was on anybody’s mind until I brought it up at my announcement. And I said ‘Mexico is sending.’ Except the reporters, because they’re a very dishonest lot generally speaking in the world of politics, they didn’t cover my statement the way I said it. The fact is since then many killings, murders, crime, drugs pouring across the border, our money going out and the drugs coming in.”
If this isn’t enough for you, Trump went on to say that most importantly we need a wall “to keep the illegals out”:
“We need to build a wall. And it has to be built quickly. And I don’t mind having a big beautiful door in that wall so that people can come into this country legally.”
When Mr. Trump was asked what actual evidence do you have of criminals coming to this country, and being sent by the Mexican government, he said:
“I was at the border last week, they say ‘this is what’s happening because our leaders are stupid. Politicians are stupid. The Mexican government is much smarter, much more cunning…”
Oh, so your source is just some dude chillen at the border? OK. So then he got asked if he is so smart, why did he have to file for bankruptcy so many times? His answer was simply
“I have taken advantage of the laws of this country.”
Twitter had no chill button after hearing all this, and here’s a few hilarious memes that were made.
