President Donald Trump mocked asylum seekers during a speech on Saturday before the Republican Jewish Coalition.
“The asylum program is a scam,” Trump said. “Some of the roughest people that you’ve ever seen. People that look like they should be fighting for the UFC. They read a little page given by lawyers that are all over the place. They tell them what to say. You look at this guy, you say, wow, that’s a tough cookie.”
Trump then mocked an asylum seeker: “I am very fearful for my life. I am very worried that will be accosted.”
“No, no. He’ll do the accosting,” Trump said, to a smattering of applause. “Asylum, oh, give him asylum, he’s afraid! He’s afraid! We don’t love the fact that he’s got tattoos on his face, that’s not a good sign. We don’t love the fact that he’s carrying the flag of Honduras, Guatemala or El Salvador only to say he’s petrified of his country.”
Trump also repeated a favorite lie of his: that foreign governments are infiltrating the visa lottery system with bad immigrants.
