Trump on Countries Refusing Their Nationals: ‘We’ll Tariff Their Goods, They’ll Take Them Back in Two Seconds’

President Donald Trump says he is committed to sanctioning and placing tariffs on foreign countries who refuse to take back their nationals after being deported from the United States.

In a meeting with State Department, Defense Department, and Homeland Security officials, Trump promised to put tariffs on the goods of countries and sanction others that refused their nationals in an “America First” initiative that past administrations under President George W. Bush and President Barack Obama failed to implement.

Trump said:

But if they don’t take them back, we’ll put sanctions on the countries. We’ll put tariffs on the countries. They’ll take them back so fast your head will spin. We’ll just tariff their goods coming in, and they’ll take them back in two seconds. You have a lot of people from those countries, and they’ll take them back.

We’ve had a very weak policy. We bring them back; they say, “We don’t want them.” And why should they? They killed five people. Why would they want them? And we will do something with regard to sanctions and tariffs, where they will — your head will spin how fast they get taken back. Okay? Every country is the same.

Donald Trump Shares Dynamite Editorial Criticizing the FBI

President Donald Trump shared the text of a Wall Street Journal editorial sounding the alarm about the information revealed in the memo declassified by the House Intelligence Committee.

The editorial accused the FBI of using the FISA court and the phony opposition dossier funded by Hillary Clinton to influence the election.

It read:

We don’t know the political motives of the FBI and Justice officials, but the facts are damaging enough. The FBI in essence let itself and the FISA court be used to promote a major theme of the Clinton campaign. Mr. Steele and Fusion then leaked the fact of the investigation to friendly reporters to try to defeat Mr. Trump before the election. And afterward they continued to leak all this to the press to cast doubt on the legitimacy of Mr. Trump’s victory.

No matter its motives, the FBI became a tool of anti-Trump political actors. This is unacceptable in a democracy and ought to alarm anyone who wants the FBI to be a nonpartisan enforcer of the law.

The Journal’s editorial called for the declassification of more documents and praised House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes for releasing the memo.

“[E]xposing abuses is the essence of accountability in a democracy,” the editorial read.

Ingraham: Memo Shows Comey FBI, Obama DOJ & Clinton Campaign ‘Colluded’ Against Trump (Video)

Ingraham said the memo reveals the “real” collusion that occurred during the 2016 election, and it wasn’t between the Trump campaign and Russia.

In her opening monologue on Friday night, Laura Ingraham reacted to the controversial memo alleging government surveillance abuses.

The memo, which was released on Friday by Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee, contains a number of bombshell allegations, including that the FBI and Justice Department relied on the infamous anti-Trump dossier to secure FISA surveillance warrants to spy on at least one member of the Trump team.

It also claims the former British spy who compiled the dossier — which was funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee — had a personal animus toward President Donald Trump.

Ann Coulter: Jeff Sessions ‘Better Be Ready to Arrest’ Congressmen Bringing Illegal Aliens to Trump’s SOTU (Video)

Populist conservative columnist and New York Times best-selling author Ann Coulter says Attorney General Jeff Sessions “better be ready to arrest all” members of Congress who are expected to bring illegal aliens as their dates to President Trump’s “State of the Union” (SOTU) address.

In an interview with conservative talk radio host Howie Carr, Coulter said Sessions should be gearing up to arrest Washington, D.C. politicians who arrive at Trump’s SOTU address with illegal aliens.

COULTER: I’ve also heard they’re planning on inviting illegal aliens. So Jeff Sessions better be ready to arrest all of them for conspiring to commit a crime, which I believe is a felony under federal law in all 50 states, even if the crime itself is not a felony. I mean, they had to have meetings, they had to make a phone call. These are people who are in the country illegally and anyone conspiring with them to keep them here illegally, to invite them to a State of the Union address, Jeff Sessions should have them all arrested and I mean the congressmen.

But seriously, Sessions should be looking at all of these governors and mayors for conspiring to commit federal crimes.

President Trump’s Immigration Proposal: A “White Supremacist Ransom Note” – Stefan Molyneux (Video)

President Donald Trump’s latest immigration proposal calls for a pathway to citizenship for 1.8 million illegal immigrants, $25 billion in funding for the wall and an end to both chain migration and the visa lottery program. While many Trump supporters are incredibly angry with the President’s amnesty proposal, a surprising number of Democrats and illegal alien amnesty groups also have rejected the deal.

Cruz Slams Trump on Amnesty: ‘Inconsistent with the Promises We Made’

Sen. Ted Cruz is taking a stand against President Donald Trump’s proposal to allow 700,000 ‘dreamer’ illegal immigrants win the huge prize of American citizenship.

According to Bloomberg, Cruz told reporters Thursday that:

“I do not believe we should be granting a path to citizenship to anybody here illegally,” the Texas Republican said in the Capitol. “Doing so is inconsistent with the promises we made to the men and women who elected us” …

“For some reason that to me is utterly inexplicable, we see Republicans falling all over themselves to gallop to the left of Obama in a way that is contrary to the promises made to the voters who elected us,” Cruz said. “We need to honor the promises we made. And that is what I am energetically urging my colleagues to do.”

The pushback came after Trump casually suggested Wednesday night that he could agree to Democrats’ demand that the 700,000 illegals enrolled in the ‘DACA’ amnesty could have citizenship. Trump said to reporters:

We’re going to morph into it, it’s going to happen. Over a period of 10 to 12 years, somebody does a great job, they’ve worked hard.

Trump’s amnesty proposal is far smaller than the now-dead “Gang of Six” plan by GOP Sens. Lindsey Graham, Jeff Flake, and Cory Gardner. That giveaway would have provided citizenship to 3.25 million illegals and work-permits to their roughly 4.75 million parents. The 8 million number was announced by White House press secretary Hogan Gidley. The gang’s plan would also have allowed the 3.25 million migrants to import additional migrants as chain-migration relatives.
