In an interview released Monday, President Trump said that he does not want any immigrants to come to the United States who would be on welfare.
Trump told Breitbart News:
“I don’t want to have anyone coming in that’s on welfare, We owe a lot of money. We’re taking care of everybody in the world’s military. But now as you know I got over $100 billion from NATO countries,” Trump said in the interview. “But that’s not enough, that’s not enough, we’re paying for massive portions of NATO.”
A report by the Center for Immigration Studies in 2014 said that “63 percent of households headed by a non-citizen reported that they used at least one welfare program.”
The president said politicians and Democrats are being weak or have vested interests in allowing immigrants needing welfare assistance to enter the USA.
“We have a problem, because we have politicians that are not strong, or they have bad intentions, or they want to get votes, because they think if they come in they’re going to vote Democrat, you know, for the most part,” president Trump said.
Speaking about the Democrats, he added, “They’ll take anybody into this country and we’re not allowing it, but because of the success of the country economically, some people say—I blame myself, but that’s a good blame
Trump continued: “You do need workers. You have homes in Houston, and they can’t get people to build the homes—and lots of other places. But because of what’s happened, and because of the people coming up, they want them to come in and they don’t care how they come in.”
The president finished saying: “I don’t like the idea of people coming in and going on welfare for 50 years, and that’s what they want to be able to do—and it’s no good.”
