Undocumented Immigrants 'Not People,' Election Warning Issued

Trump’s Controversial Remarks: Undocumented Immigrants ‘Not People,’ Election Warning Issued

During a chaotic event in Ohio on Saturday night, former President Trump called some undocumented immigrants “not people” and threatened to ignite a “bloodbath” if he is not reelected.

Speaking on Saturday in a suburb of Dayton, Ohio, Trump supported Senate candidate Bernie Moreno, who is scheduled to square off against Secretary of State Frank LaRose and state senator Matt Dolan in a close primary on Tuesday.

Immigration is still a crucial issue for the 2024 election, as seen by the previous president’s remarks on immigrants who are accused of crimes.

“I don’t know if you call them people,” he stated at the rally. “In some cases they’re not people, in my opinion. But I’m not allowed to say that because the radical left says that’s a terrible thing to say.”

In addition, Trump warned of a catastrophic outcome if he lost in November, stating that Joe Biden would destroy the American economy.

“If I don’t get elected, it’s going to be a bloodbath for the whole — that’s going to be the least of it. It’s going to be a bloodbath for the country,” Trump declared in reference to his proposal to impose high taxes on imported vehicles.

The remarks were condemned by the Biden campaign as part of Trump’s “threats of political violence.”

Campaign spokesman James Singer said in a statement, “He wants another January 6, but the American people are going to give him another electoral defeat this November because they continue to reject his extremism, his affection for violence, and his thirst for revenge.”

Trump’s remarks On Saturday, he repeated his derogatory remarks about immigration from the beginning of his 2016 presidential campaign, when he referred to Mexicans as “rapists,” and more recently, when he said that immigrants are “poisoning the blood of our country.”

The last remark prompted comparisons to comparable passages in Adolf Hitler’s “Mein Kampf,” which Trump has refuted and condemned.

With Moreno or Dolan leading in recent surveys, the three-way Republican contest for Ohio’s Senate nomination is predicted to be close.

Trump and his friends have thrown their support behind Moreno, while more centrist political figures in the Buckeye State, such as former Senator Rob Portman (R-Ohio) and Governor Mike DeWine (R), support Dolan.

According to general election surveys, Dolan is the more formidable opponent for Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), who is going to have a challenging battle to hold onto a crucial Senate seat that is vital to the Democrats’ attempts to maintain their slender majority.
