The United States President Donald Trump has claimed that the asylum seekers look like UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) fighters, reports source.
On Saturday, while addressing the Republican Jewish Coalition in Las Vegas, Trump made the remark.
Referring to mixed martial arts promotion company, President Trump said that “some of the roughest people you’ve ever seen, people that look like they should be fighting for the UFC.”
“They (asylum seekers) read a little page given by lawyers that are all over the place – you know lawyers, they tell them what to say. You look at this guy, you say, wow, ‘that’s a tough cookie’,” he added.
Trump further mocks at those who supporting asylum as being in denial about migrant’s motivations.
Imitating the supporters, President Trump said that “Oh, give him asylum – he’s afraid, he’s afraid!”
He continued, “We don’t love the fact that he’s got tattoos on his face, that’s not a good sign. We don’t love the fact that he’s carrying the flag of Honduras or Guatemala or El Salvador, only to say he’s petrified to be in his country.”
Donald Trump has justified his decision to cut aid to those three central American nations, known as the Northern Triangle, for their role in caravans traveling to the United States.
“The Democrats say, ‘how dare you to do that, that money is used for all this good’… But no it’s not, it’s largely stolen,” added Trump.
He further said that “now if their government wanted to, I have a feeling they’d be able to stop caravans from forming in those three countries… They’re pretty tough, they’re pretty tough down there. And, but they didn’t, so I stopped the payments.”
On Friday, the US President has reiterated his remarks that “our country’s full”.
