Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Donald Trump thinks immigrants are trash, metaphorically speaking. Not just unauthorized immigrants. Legal immigrants -- specifically, those who come to the US on "diversity visas," after being selected in a lottery for residents of countries that are underrepresented in the US immigration system as a whole. Trump said, ""They give us their worst people, put them in a bin ... they're picking the worst of the worst, congratulations you're going to the US."

It's not surprising that Trump is wrong on the facts -- people selected in the visa lottery go through exactly as much screening as any other would-be immigrant to the United States, and the governments of their countries are not deliberately "picking" them to immigrate.

I'm by no means a fan of Trump but I think saying he's comparing them to trash is a big stretch. I took it as putting their names in a bin and picking the name out.

I get what you're saying, Pirate, but "worst of the worst" is not exactly a commendation.

He wasn't complimenting them for sure.

What Trump means is he wants to personally select who gets visas.

He's selling them for half a million each.

Allowing people in for free undermines his ability to do so.

Well Trump's granddad was trash, so maybe he has a point.

#1, see #9

What you're doing is falling for Donnie Dotard's favorite trick - say something everyone understands but leave out one word, or add in a qualification (think: everyone knows, people say, some of, etc...)

Congratulations, you are enabling.
