Trump promises to deport ‘millions’ if re-elected

Former President Donald Trump has hinted that he would deport millions of immigrants if re-elected in 2024.

During an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity, he was asked how long it would take him to ‘get things back to where you had them when you left’ if he were elected president again. .

“Very quickly, except for one thing: millions of people are now in our country who shouldn’t be here. Many of them are prisoners, criminals,” replied the former president.

“Do you want to evict them? Hannity asked. “The bad guys, I would deport them. Millions and millions of people have–they’re poisoning our country. They poison – I wish I was nice about that,” Mr Trump replied.

The former president also said Venezuela was “emptying its prisons” without providing evidence.

“Yesterday I heard that Venezuela was emptying its prisons in the United States. Now I wasn’t so shocked because other countries did it and I read about it and saw it,” he said.

“So I’m almost surprised it took them this long, but Venezuela is emptying its prison population into the United States crossing the border like nothing,” he added.

“We are poisoning our country, and it’s very hard to recover from that,” Trump continued.

The remarks come as Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, seen as a possible rival to Mr Trump as he could announce plans for a 2024 presidential race, was prosecuted for orchestrating the transport of nearly 50 immigrants, mostly Venezuelans, from Texas to Martha’s Vineyard.

Meanwhile, Mr Trump’s lawyers have been ordered to say whether they really believe the FBI has planted incriminating evidence in the documents seized at Mar-a-Lago.

Mr Trump had claimed in the interview that as president he had the power to declassify top secret documents just “by thinking about it”.

He also blamed the banks for not checking his company’s valuations and bizarrely suggested that the FBI had seized his will and could have searched for Hillary Clinton’s emails in his mansion as well.

The Fox News interview aired amid more trouble for Mr Trump after the New York Attorney General sued the Trump Organization and his three adult children for inflating the value of his properties by billions of dollars. dollars and usually misleads the banks.
