Trump Tweets Video of Then-Senator Obama’s Comments on Illegal Immigration: I Agree ‘100%!’

President Donald Trump tonight tweeted out a video of comments former President Barack Obama made about immigration back when he was a senator.

The video, which appears to come from 2005, features Obama saying the following:

“We are a generous and welcoming people here in the United States, but those who enter the country illegally and those who employ them disrespect the rule of law and they are showing disregard for those who are following the law. We simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States, undetected, undocumented, unchecked and circumventing the line of people who are waiting patiently, diligently, and lawfully to become immigrants in this country.”

“I agree with President Obama 100%!” Trump tweeted.

You can watch the full context of Obama’s remarks here, via C-SPAN.
