BREAKING VIDEO=> OBAMA SCOLDS DONALD TRUMP on Cutting Off Remittances to Mexico – Reporters Laugh
Donald Trump announced today he would force Mexico to pay for a border wall by threatening to cut off billions of dollars in remittances sent by immigrants living in the U.S., according to a memo released by his campaign Tuesday.
Today Barack Obama scolded Donald Trump on his remittance proposal during a short press conference at the White House.
Barack Obama today took time to scold Donald Trump on his plan to cut off remittances to Mexico until it forks over the funds to pay for a border wall.
Obama may have the worst foreign policy in US history but it didn’t stop him from lecturing Trump and American voters.
Obama said the plan would be disastrous for Mexico. He could not care less that the open border is destroying America.
Barack Obama: I’ve been very clear. I’m getting questions constantly from foreign leaders on some of the “wackier” suggestions that are being made… The implications in regards to ending remittances, many of which by the way are from legal immigrants, and are from individuals who are sending money back to their families, are enormous. First of all, they’re impractical… The notion that we’re going to track every Western Union bit of money that is being sent to Mexico, uh, good luck with that. Then we got the implications for the Mexican economy. Which in turn if it is collapsing sends more immigrants north because they can’t find jobs back in Mexico.
Obama is obviously satisfied with the status quo.
It’s a shame he won’t defend the American worker as much as he defends the illegal Mexican workers.
The Mexican central bank reported that money sent home by Mexicans overseas hit nearly $24.8 billion last year, overtaking oil revenues for the first time as the primary source of foreign income.
He'll make oceans recede, but building a wall is CRAZY! Obama 2 Trump: Good luck getting Mexico to pay 4 border wall https://t.co/QN2VvNfxLB
