Trump Combines Cruel Immigration Policies with Broken Promises : A Closer Look

-The Trump administration
has announced a new rule that would limit
legal immigration by imposing a wealth test. For more on this it’s time for
“A Closer Look.” [ Suspenseful theme plays ]
[ Cheering and applause ] ♪♪ Trump has many racist conspiracy
theories about immigrants. He thinks they’re being
funded by shadowy groups. He thinks it’s a plot
to invade America and he’s pretty sure
at least one of his sons snuck in from Transylvania. [ Laughter ]
[as Trump] Secret Service, he’s out of his coffin again. [ Laughter ] Trump also has his insane
theory that other countries are somehow rigging
the visa lottery system, to put their worst people
in the lottery. He’s repeated it many times, including at a rally
earlier this month. -How about the lottery system? [ Booing ] How about lotteries? You put the name in a basket. The country puts the name
in the basket and you pick people
out of the lottery. Well, let’s see,
“This one’s a murderer. [ Laughter ]
This one robbed four banks. This one, I’d better not say. This one,
another murderer.” Ladies and gentlemen,
another murderer. -It sounds like
he’s picking his cabinet. [ Laughter ]
[as Trump] Bank robber. [ Cheering and applause ]
Oh, a murderer. Oh, oh, you guys. [ Cheering and applause ] You guys, we got a cannibal. [ Laughter ] [ Applause ] But, Trump continued. -Think of this: Do you think they’re gonna
put their great citizens? They have great citizens. They have great people,
like we have great people. Do you think those people are
going into a lottery? No. And then, we get
these people coming in. You just take a look. Look at the people they put
into these lotteries. -That’s not how it works. Countries don’t put people
in the lotteries. [ Laughter ]
People enter themselves and it’s not murderers, saying, “The police are closing in! I better make my escape,
by entering a random drawing.” [ Laughter ] This is one of Trump’s favorite
insane conspiracy theories and he’s repeated it countless
times throughout his presidency. -They have a lottery. You pick people. You think the country’s
givin’ us their best people? No. Visa lottery! Visa lottery! Boom. Who is this?!
Who is this? And then, when they turn out
to be not so good, we say, “I wonder why.” Well, maybe the country’s
giving us their worst in those lotteries. Does that make any sense? Think of it: A lottery! You pick people. Now, let me ask you. So, these countries that are
sending people in. Do you think they’re
sending us their finest? And then, we wonder why
we have problems. We’re not going to be a stupid country anymore! -Anh, we’re still very much
the stupid country. [ Laughter and applause ]
Stupid is our brand. Obama made us cool.
You made us stupid. One of the other
problems here is, unlike more complicated terms, Trump thinks he knows
what a lottery is, so, even though he’s wrong,
he’s trying to flex his muscles. I’m surprised he didn’t
just start talking about scratch-offs,
at some point. [as Trump]
And they give you a card and you use a dime, ideally. Worst case, your thumb, and you just start scratching
and, if you get three matching flags,
that’s your new home. [ Laughter and applause ] That’s how it works
in a [bellowing] lottery! A visa lottery. [ Applause ] Trump feeds his supporters
these racist conspiracy theories to make them think
that undeserving immigrants are coming here and draining
our public resources, which is a bigoted lie. And, now, he’s taking that lie
one step further, by implementing a new rule
that will basically institute a wealth test, in order
to limit legal immigration. -A major policy change
by the Trump administration is trying to dramatically limit
legal immigration into the U.S. The so-called public charge rule would make it more difficult
for people who are, again, here legally, but rely on some
form of government assistance. Medicaid, food stamps, housing
vouchers, some of the examples. It would make it harder
for them to get a green card. The new criteria
favors wealthier, more educated immigrants. The National Immigration
Law Center calls the new rule a wealth test on immigrants. [ Rotors whirring ]
-I don’t think it’s fair to have the American taxpayer pay for people to come
into the United States. I’m tired of seeing our taxpayer paying for people
to come into the country and immediately go onto welfare
and various other things, so I think we’re doing it right. -So, now,
you’re suddenly concerned about wasting taxpayers’ money? You’ve already spent more
than $100 million, just on golf trips. [ Laughter ]
And I have one very simple
fix for this. We don’t need to stop
paying for his golf. We just need to stop paying
for his golf cart because just imagine how fast
he would lose interest if he had to walk.
[as Trump] This sucks. [ Laughter ]
I’m gonna play a sport where you don’t have
to move so much, like grass luge. [ Laughter and clapping ] This is fundamentally
antithetical to everything that America’s
supposed to stand for. In fact, that ethos
is famously etched on the Statue of Liberty in the Emma Lazarus poem
“The New Colossus.” Yesterday,
Trump’s acting director of U.S. Citizenship
and Immigration Services, Ken Cuccinelli,
was asked on NPR about that poem and said this. -Would you also agree
that Emma Lazarus’s words, etched on the Statue of Liberty,
“Give me your tired, your poor,” are also part
of the American ethos? -They certainly are. “Give me your tired
and your poor” who can stand
on their own two feet [ Laughter ]
and who will not become a public charge. -First of all, you can’t
just rewrite the poem! [ Laughter ]
Especially a poem on a plaque. Once it’s on a plaque,
it’s the thing. [ Laughter ] The sign says “No smoking,” not “No smoking,
but also smoking.” [ Laughter ] Second, you want them
to stand on their own two feet? Trump can’t stand
on his two feet. [ Laughter ]
Look at him.
He’s like a drunk guy, tryin’ real hard
to pretend he’s sober. [ Clapping ]
Trump is doing this for two reasons:
one, he’s a racist and racism is at the core
of his immigration policy. And two, he can’t deliver
on any of the other promises he’s made to voters. That’s why his administration
inflicts cruelty on desperate migrant families, like when they conducted
the largest single-state immigration raid
in history last week and separated children
from their parents. Meanwhile, he can’t
actually do anything to help the people
he promised to help: the so-called forgotten
men and women of America, the working class
he claimed he championed. He told them he’d fix everything
and that it would be so easy. You know, like healthcare. -We’re gonna get you
something so good. So much less expensive,
so much better. You know what it’s called?
It’s better and less expensive. That’s a good combination. You’re going to have
such great healthcare, at a tiny fraction of the cost,
and it’s gonna be so easy. -As a general rule,
never take advice from a guy in a camouflage hat
with orange font because… [ Laughter ]
it’s a weird choice. I mean, I get the orange,
but not the words, you know? You’ve never seen a hunter
going into the woods in camo gear with bright
orange writing that says, “I am a hunter.”
[ Laughter ] Now, a universal
healthcare system that guarantees healthcare
as a human right is possible,
as many industrialized nations and Democrats running
for president have shown, but Trump made the promise without having any clue
what he was talking about and then, of course,
once it came time to come up with an actual plan, like any con artist,
he tried to talk in circles until people forgot
what he’d promised. This will be a plan where
you can choose your doctor. This will be a plan
where you can choose your plan. -[Chuckling]
-And you know what the plan is? This is the plan.
-Oh my God. He always sounds like
he’s playing Taboo and he can’t think
of a second clue that’s not [indistinct] [as Trump]
Uh, it’s a plan, you know. Like a plan. A plan.
It’s a plan. You know, a plan!
[ Buzzer ] The word was plan.
I was cheating. [ Laughter and clapping ] I was cheating the whole time. Then, there was Trump’s promise
to save manufacturing jobs. During a stop in Ohio
two years ago, he told residents
he would singlehandedly save their manufacturing plants. In fact, he literally told
the people at his rally who were worried about losing
their jobs not to move. -I rode through your
beautiful roads, coming up from the airport
and I was — I was lookin’ at some
of those big, once incredible, job-producing factories. And my wife, Melania, said,
“What happened?” I said, “Those jobs
have left Ohio.” They’re all
comin’ back. [ Cheering and applause ]
They’re all comin’ back. [ Whistling ]
Comin’ back. [ Applause ] Don’t move. Don’t sell your house.
Don’t sell your house. -If Donald Trump, a man
who has gone bankrupt six times and is infamous
for some of the biggest real estate disasters
in history, tells you don’t sell your
house, sell your house. [ Laughter and applause ]
Trump is — Trump is the kind of guy
who would tell people, during a tornado, [as Trump] “You definitely
wanna be by a window. [ Laughter ]
Be by a window, so you can see it.
Sometimes they have cows inside. [ Laughter and applause ] Once again, you’ll
never guess what happened. A plant nearby, in Lordstown,
closed in March. Then, when the cruel reality
of Trump’s empty promises came crashing down on the
workers he promised to help, all Trump could do
was offer a useless tweet. And, once again,
he clearly had no idea how to deliver on his promise. -“Just spoke to Mary Barra,
CEO of General Motors, about the Lordstown,
Ohio, plant. I am not happy that it is closed when everything else
in our country is booming. I asked her to sell it
or do something quickly. She blamed the UAW union. I don’t care.
I just want it open. -Hey, ass[bleep], you told them
not to sell their homes. A tweet whining that you’re not
happy isn’t good enough. It’s like if your buddy told you
to invest everything you have in Bitcoin and, then,
when it crashed, sent you a text that was just a dollar emoji
and a surprise face. [ Laughter and clapping ] Also, what do you mean, “I asked her to do something”? Do what?
You’re the guy who said you were gonna
save the jobs. You’re supposed
to have the ideas. Like a plumber who shows up
and takes a look at your toilet, and then just screams, “Unclog!” [ Laughter ] [ Applause ] By the way, that plant
in Ohio is far from alone. In fact, just two weeks ago,
GM idled another plant in Michigan,
which might come as a shock to people who were
at these Trump rallies in Michigan in 2016. -I’ve been saying:
Your car industry’s being sucked
away from Michigan. It’s happening. If I’m elected,
you won’t lose one plant. You’ll have plants coming
into this country. You’re gonna have jobs again. You won’t lose one plant. I promise you that. [ Cheering and applause ]
I promise you that. So all I say is this:
You wanna build your plant in Mexico,
have a great time. But if you think you’re
gonna ship your product across the border — which will
be a very strong border, by the way —
for no tax, no nothing. So we end up with unemployment and we end up with empty
plants and factories. And you end up with the money,
the jobs, and the plants. You can forget it. And you know what would happen? If you said that right upfront,
nobody’s leaving, folks. You stop it right away. The politicians
don’t wanna say that because most of them are too
stupid to even understand it. -They’re too stupid? Dude, you’re too stupid
to spell the word country, your wife’s name,
and your own name. [ Laughter and applause ]
I mean, imagine if this guy tried meeting his own
immigration standards. He has no discernible skills,
lost $1 billion, and can’t spell his own name. He’d flunk
the citizenship test before he even got
to the first question. [ Laughter ] Trump inflicts cruelty
on desperate migrants fleeing poverty and violence
because, first, he’s a racist and racism is at the core
of his ideology. And second, he’s failed
at literally everything else he’s promised to do. You need a plan
to expand healthcare, save manufacturing jobs. You can’t just do it
by tweeting or yelling at people,
but Trump is… -Too stupid to even
understand it. -This has been “A Closer Look.” ♪♪
[ Cheering and applause ]

  1. Look at the people at Trump rallies. They all look like zombies! What kind of electromagnetic radio frequency is he using on them? Isn't that inhumane? I heard Trump is remotely torturing Americans with EM weapons and technologies… Why hasn't he been arrested for that?

  2. Oh shut the F—k up.. This man is one stupid moran.. Lies lies and more lies and the idiots that are behind him and in front of him,, the inbreds actually believe this BS.. He talks out of his asshole and doesn't know what the hell he's saying and nothing makes sense.. He is a complete Moran. This man is a disgrace to this country and a threat to society. Impeach the MF

  3. Mr Dump you have said alot before you got elected. and when you got elected you forgot all about them. only Me me me is all you are all about.. You and your children and all those republicansd in congress need to be thrown in jail and throw the key away.. You are corrupt as hell, always have been and always will be.. It's all in plaine sight all the corruption in this administration.. Impeach the MF.

  4. Right, baby-don! We can't be giving assistance to people coming into our country; we need to support the leeching 1% we already have.

  5. Trump has a point. When totally eligible people are slide lined, a bunch of people get special treatment in the name of lottery?! For what ? What diversity are these people bringing into USA ? Basically nothing. Lottery system must end.

  6. Trump makes the green card lottery sound like it's the US who enters other country's drawings and keeps getting the crap prize.

  7. God, this one is the stupidest man. Dumb dumb, dumbo, do his kids talk like this too?.. yeah were not gonna be stupid country because hopefully you are not president ever again… your disgusting trump

  8. I literally don't understand this guy.
    He is racist and a hypocrite.
    Why is he making legal immigration more stringent. The fact that getting a green card was a tough job . Now it's impossible.
    You have an undying hatred towards immigrants is quite funny considering the fact that your wife is immigrant.

  9. "Stupid is our BRAND" and everything is a joke…….and you are an agent of no conscience to be undermining , Honor , integrity , pride and responsibility to anybody . sell out. Traitor. You and Trump are exactly the same . No wonder you get paid so much and are adored , applauded and privileged to keep us thinking you guys have not been aware of your role as "Anti- Americans" or can you even be so stupid to not see this. You , Kimmel and the retarded kid need to realize this is not helping….but actually condones open mockery of all we claim to represent. Live form Guantanimo Bay…here's Seth's future. Wake-up America!

  10. tRump is a Nature mistake that, like cars wrecks most of people sickly do enjoy to look at. He is so sick, gross, uneducated, unsophisticated, lower the bar to such a low level, it makes most people — not inspired — but just feel good about themselves. And that's what Trump has always sold: feel goods.


  12. I can't understand why nobody is picking up the story that Trump had an intern shove a cigar in her vagina then gave it to a diplomat. Somebody cover this please

  13. Tired of tax payers paying other peoples needs, said the guys who has spent more than 100 milion of tax payer money playing golf

  14. I just hope they don't fall for it again. when I walk into a bar of guys sitting on stools drinking 50 cent drafts because they have very little money the first thing I do is say "I TOLD SO" really loud. They just look at me like I'm nuts. I don't explain. It sinks in after awhile. all I told them 3 years ago was he is a liar. He won't fix health care and he isn't going to save your job. he will bail them out on a lick and a promise instead of making them sign an agreement to keep the the plant open and pay a fair wage. they took the money that they were supposed to bail the plants out with and shut them down anyway. Yea, I live in Ohio. Luckily I work in the entertainment industry so the lies don't affect me aside of health care and that truly was the biggest lie but I still have a good paycheck that the health insurance company and pharma regularly steal from me.

  15. Okay, come on, they wanted to impeach him because he got the prediction of a hurricane wrong (just like every meteorologist). Are we really that spoiled?

  16. Thank you and your wife for your service sir! Too bad we have a bafoon for a president!! He was born with his head up his ass!

  17. DT doesn't even know how the American visa lottery works? And people who claim to have brains sit down and listen to him? Priceless.

  18. Trump should be more careful about how he talks about these countries, he might need to live there after we chase him out of the US. Europe isn't going to want him.

  19. When u ask for your green card u sign that cant get public help for 5years your sponser has to support uso this was already a liie

  20. Who are these stupid people standing behind this moron. There cannot possibly be that many fools willing to be led around by the nose by this pig-eyed pos.

  21. Blocking Mexicans out will make America poor. Even if 1 million Mexicans buy only a dollars worth of a shitty American product, that’s still one more white millionaire.

  22. Priceless are the looks on the people behind him when they roll their eyes and clap their hands you know they are being paid to stand there and clap.

    if you are an illegal seeking work
    company's do not have to pay you minimum wage
    nor do thy have to give you any benefits
    and thy may also stiff you your paycheck
    you may be sexually harassed and even raped
    becos you have no way to defend yourself
    how do i know this
    becos there is a law that states that if you higher an illegal you can go to jail
    when is the last time you saw a ceo go to jail for hiring an illegal

  24. The way these clips are run together, you would think Trump talks about the same subjects at each one. The 'wall ramble' here followed by the 'immigration dump-on' and to finish 'Lock her up RANT!!' Sooo boring and very predictable. The days of a coherent speech with REAL substance finished with Obama.

  25. Wow!! "I road through you're beautiful roads" ???? can't you say anything in the correct way!!!! looks like all 70 of you're years are showing at once. "…In the United SHerts!!!"

  26. BANKRUPT 6 TIMES…then he has not paid tax for about 12 years. especially if those bankruptcy's followed each other or he made a sum and then over spent again then rolled another one after that. No wonder he is holding onto them and not releasing them to the press.

  27. and your grandfather, and your father, they were such upstanding citizens (lol)
    Nazi sympathizers…
    do you're homework folks, they're racist crooks from waaay back, conivers and ppl who failed to rent to the common (?) person(s); Donny, they didn't teach you how to be a scumbag and lying conniving piece of s*** that you are now…????

  28. This country I was born in has gone insane. The entire world has descended into insanity and the planet is dying. There is a strong possibility that the human race will be extinct by 2050. And everyone pretends that can't happen. And that everything will be OK. Believe me it will not. We currently have going on 9 billion people on this rock that science says can only sustain 3 to 4 billion people. Which means that 5 billion need to go away. I suggest we have a world wide lottery and when your number comes up you need to report to an extermination facility and the lottery would have try and include everyone in it. Including the fascist oligarchy. There is an outside chance that the Earth is actually sentient and will protect itself from us parasites and release a virus that kills most of us. And that may be the most we can hope for.

  29. I think trump wears a hat when he hasn’t had his ridiculous hair styled for him. One could call it hair but it looks like a rats ass

  30. No Seth, this guy is doing this against immigrants because think about it, from all his sons and daughters there is one son with dark hair, which makes him different, could it be that he is not this guy's son, if that's true, he could be the milkman's son, and maybe the milkman was a immigrant, and to make worst for Trump, maybe the milkman was latino, and because Trump doesn't know a lot about geography, he thinks all Hispanic countries are inside the Mexican Territory.

  31. None of you clowns never tried going into a foreign country, so how would you jerk offs know, If you wanted to get into British Columbia, you better have at least 2 grand in your pocket or you are on your way home, seth brilliantly forgot to mention that.

  32. trump should have been impeached as soon as he was the president. In fact, he shouldn't have even been a candidate in the first place. every sort of evil has come about because of trump. trump should not only have to suffer every single form of human torture ever invented but also every single divine punishment from every single god that has ever existed because even hitler looks tame next to trump

  33. Don't believe what He said ,cos near the Poll day,they all ganged up together defame pres Trump ,DOWN DOWN DOWN democuns party

  34. Because The USA got a bunch of powerful cunning democuns policticians ,so whatever they want to say, they say it freely without caring or minding of any thing ,any one though that will got bad rumous of USA ,and being worse in front of world ,It is the elected president not a normal people ,Maybe they haven't got the pride of themselves ,only power and materials were matter to thêm

  35. I'm watching him describe the people he pulls out of the lottery basket and I'm thinking, Oh my God, he just pulled out his own name!

  36. I am a foreigner and my # 45 now I should of been the President LOL LOL LOL Now if you americans think that is the way they do well I wont say anything but lol lol. It is this way USA only take in from each country a number of people.And that is the reason Mexico can not all get the greencard it is 12years wayting time for them.

  37. I would be so embarrassed to be a paid supporter and sit behind Trump and cheer for his irrational, insane, Hitler-like caustic speaches….. And I use the word speaches loosely

  38. Donald Trump is THE worst president…the only thing that makes Bush worst is that Bush lied people died. Along with Reagan Republicans pick the worst people for president..

  39. I know a person from the visa lottery and she is smart being a chemist 👩🏼‍🔬 from her own country. She’s 🙂 awesome 👏 

  40. Thank you President Obama for giving the country a big enough economic boost to survive this business criminal's long con. Usually around two or three years must pass before positive changes take effect. And let the next legally elected president accept our apologies for tanking in the polls when the tsunami caused by the storm of Trump makes landfall. There is hope, however, as undoing what this faux president has done happens to coincide with the goals of a good, legitimate leader. The blueprint is clear. Just look back to 2017 and start the restoration from January 20.

  41. As Iranian I promise you people who get to lottery are the most educated people who don't like Iran's regime. Look how many Dr's and engineers from Iran are living in America.

  42. I am tired of people wasting tax payer money. I also want trump to take an English proficiency test.

    Let us start with you donnie little.
