When it comes to Mexicans, President Trump’s remarks about them never miss the front pages. One of the nastiest statement he made was that the Mexican people in the United States are rapist, murderers and drug dealers sent by the Mexican government.
Donald Trump was launching his Presidential campaign in 2015 at the Trump Towers when he made that shocking statement.
When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.
Even though Trump received a lot of criticism for this remark, he never took it back. On July 6, 2015, he even added:
What can be simpler or more accurately stated? The Mexican government is forcing their most unwanted people into the United States. They are, in many cases, criminals, drug dealers, rapists, etc.
