President Trump on Friday said that Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden would turn Minnesota into a “refugee camp” full of people like Rep. Ilhan Omar.
“Sleepy Joe will turn Minnesota into a refugee camp,” Trump told a large rally in Bemidji, northern Minnesota.
Trump, who narrowly lost Minnesota in 2016, called the scandal-plagued Minneapolis Democrat and refugee from Somalia “a beauty.”
“Every family in Minnesota needs to know about sleepy Joe Biden’s extreme plan to flood your state with an influx of refugees from Somalia and from other places all over the planet. That’s what’s happened, and you like Omar a lot, don’t you?” Trump said.
Trump said he would keep restrictions on refugee admission and deport criminals so they could “complain” in their own countries — another swipe at Omar.
“Today we deported, as you know very well, dozens of Somali nationals charged or convicted with very grave crimes including rape, assault, robbery, terrorism and murder … These hardened criminals are back in their country, where they can do all the complaining they want, and your children are much safer as a result, thank you President Trump,” he said.
This is why Trump gets called a racist, in case you're keeping track. It's rhetoric like this that has me making various contingency plans.
