Trump ‘Dehumanizing’ Insult To Mexicans Revealed

MSNBC’s Ana Cabrera hosted a panel discussion on former President Donald Trump’s recent remarks about migrants during a speech over the weekend. Trump suggested to UFC President Dana White the idea of starting a league where migrants would compete against each other, which was met with mixed reactions.



Cabrera began the segment by quoting Trump’s remarks.

“Ahead of Thursday’s first presidential debate, former President Trump once again used dehumanizing language when talking about migrants. This weekend, he told a gathering of conservative Christians in Washington, DC, that he suggested starting a league where migrants would fight one another to UFC president Dana White,” Cabrera began, before rolling the clip:

I said, Dana, I have an idea. Why don’t you set up a migrant League of fighters and have your regular league of fighters, and then you have the champion of your league. These are the greatest fighters in the world. Fight the champion of the migrants. I think the migrant guy might win. That’s how tough they are. He didn’t like that idea too much. But actually, it’s not the worst idea I’ve ever had. No. It’s. These are tough people. These people are tough, and they’re nasty. Mean. It’s incredible that they come totally unchecked.

She then aired a clip of the speech and discussed the Biden campaign’s response, quoting their statement which criticized Trump’s comments as dehumanizing and extreme.

Joining us now, former Republican Congressman Carlos Curbelo of Florida. He’s also an NBC news political analyst. And our Vaughn Hillyard, who covers the Trump campaign. Vaughn this is really just the latest in a string of dehumanizing comments related to migrants that we are hearing from the former president. And people were laughing.

Former Republican Congressman Carlos Curbelo and NBC News political analyst, along with Vaughn Hillyard, who covers the Trump campaign, joined the discussion. Hillyard was essentially in disbelief at Trump’s suggestion, pointing out that it lacks any substantive details and appears to trivialize the plight of migrants who are predominantly seeking better lives under dire circumstances.

“I don’t know to what extent to even begin to legitimize or provide any sort of credence to the suggestion made by the former president. And I say that because we, of course, know that most of the migrants that are coming to the United States are men, women and children that are seeking a better life and leaving really dire circumstances. And of course, Donald Trump is not providing any details as to what this would even look like.”
