President Barack Obama says anti-immigration sentiment has been “exploited by demagogues” before but he’s not worried Americans will follow that path.
Speaking at a summit of North America leaders in Ottawa, Obama sought to reassure both Canadians and Mexicans about the direction of the immigration debate in the presidential campaign. Obama didn’t name Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, but he alluded to Trump’s rhetoric about barring Muslims from the U.S. and building a wall along the border to Mexico.
Obama says similar rhetoric has been used in the past about Irish, Polish and Italian immigrants. But he says that rhetoric didn’t stop immigrants from coming to the U.S. “because America offered possibility.”
The president says leaders must take anxiety about immigration seriously and counter it “boldly and clearly.” But he says “you shouldn’t think that is representative of how the American people think.”
The motherfucker is in Canada bashing Donald Trump. The Presidente of Mexico is there with him, comparing Trump to Hitler and Mussolini.
FYI, Barry: Those Irish, Polish and Italian immigrants CAME HERE LEGALLY YOU DUMB FUCK!
Hijo de la chingada.
