Trump Ramps Up Violent Anti-Immigrant Rhetoric as He Campaigns for 2024

HeadlineDec 18, 2023

Donald Trump has intensified his hate speech and attacks on immigrants ahead of Iowa’s Republican presidential primary next month. Trump spoke at a rally in New Hampshire Saturday.

Donald Trump: “They’re poisoning the blood of our country. That’s what they’ve done. They’ve poisoned. Mental institutions and prisons all over the world, not just in South America, not just the three or four countries that we think about, but all over the world, they’re coming into our country, from Africa, from Asia.”

If reelected president, Trump has vowed to accelerate mass deportations and enact many of his previous anti-immigrant policies. The White House condemned Trump’s remarks as fascist and said he was “parroting Adolf Hitler.” But President Biden has also been widely criticized for perpetuating border and immigration restrictions similar to Trump’s, including asylum bans, detention and large-scale deportations.
