According to Mediaite, former President Donald Trump voiced his concerns about migrants coming into the United States with cell phones during a campaign rally in Summerville, South Carolina. Trump’s remarks included criticism of President Joe Biden’s priorities and his perception that migrants were receiving better treatment than American veterans.
During the rally, Trump accused Biden of placing other countries’ interests above those of the United States. He mentioned China, Mexico, Ukraine, Europe, and Asia, suggesting that Biden was prioritizing these nations over American interests. He then turned his attention to undocumented immigrants, asserting that they were being given preferential treatment.
Trump expressed his amazement at the number of migrants entering the country, sometimes by the tens of thousands per day, and noted that many of them possessed cell phones. He remarked on the quality and cost of these cell phones, emphasizing that they were “nice” and “expensive.” He posed questions about who was paying the migrants’ phone bills and suggested that someone, possibly Marjorie (presumably referring to Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene), should investigate the matter.
The former president continued to contrast the situation of migrants with that of American veterans, asserting that veterans did not have cell phones. He framed this comparison as evidence that the government was prioritizing undocumented immigrants over American veterans.
Trump concluded by accusing President Biden of putting America and its interests last, emphasizing that Biden was prioritizing other nations and policies over those he believed were essential to the United States, such as the military, veterans, workers, and small businesses.
Trump’s comments reflect his stance on immigration and his perception of the Biden administration’s approach to border security and immigration policy. His remarks resonate with concerns and debates surrounding immigration, national priorities, and the treatment of veterans in the United States.
Biden puts China first, Mexico first, Ukraine first, Europe first, Asia first, illegal aliens first above our great veterans, you know that. Puts the illegal aliens above our veterans. Our veterans live like hell, and you know, you see what’s happening. You ever see the illegal aliens? One of the weirdest things. They come in by the tens of thousands, sometimes a day, and they all have cell phones.
Where do they get the cell phones? Everybody has a cell phone. They’re all talking on these beautiful cell phones, and they’re expensive ones too, they’re nice ones. Somebody who was into that said, ‘Those are good phones.’ And then I say, who pays their bills? Who’s paying their bills, Marjorie? Do you wanna check that? I’ll give it to Marjorie, she’ll figure that one out fast.
The former president continued, “No, but you ever notice? They’re all coming in with cell phones. Our veterans don’t have cell phones, do they? But they put illegal aliens first and everyone first.”
