I watched part of an interview with Donald Trump the other day on All In. He said, as he is wont to do, that the Mexican government is exiling criminals to the US, like what England did in olden days to Australia or something. People have tried to fact check this comment by saying that immigrants in the US don’t commit more crimes than citizens. However, that’s not exactly what he’s saying, and you can’t fact check crazy.
For Donald Trump’s next trick, he thinks a fence or wall should be built around the border. The interview asked him how it would be paid for, and he said Mexico will pay for it. Donald Trump will use his powers of persuasion to convince them to pay for and build a fence.
This is batcrap crazy.
Let’s assume that a. Mexico exiles its criminals in the US is true. If that is true, how can b. Mexico will pay for a border fence also be true? Assuming that they want to send all their criminals to the US, why would they PAY MONEY to stop doing that? Also, if Donald Trump has such powers of persuasion, then he can just get them to stop sending their criminals (since the fence implies that Mexico will stop sending us their criminals). So then why would we need the fence?
Donald Trump’s logic makes my head explode.
