Get ready for every Trumper to scream that “legalization with back taxes” is not amnesty when they were ready to hang anyone a few months ago for saying it. Now that Trump is saying it, it’s just genius:
Here’s the quote from Politico:
Trump was asked by Fox News host Sean Hannity in an interview scheduled to air Wednesday night if he would amend his previous pledge to remove all illegal immigrants from the U.S. to include an exception for undocumented immigrants who have not committed other crimes.
“No citizenship,” Trump responded. “Let me go a step further — they’ll pay back-taxes, they have to pay taxes, there’s no amnesty, as such, there’s no amnesty, but we work with them.”
Now look, every pro-Trump idiot who was screeching about you can’t trust politicians on immigration a few months ago should be angry about this. But words have no meanings and these people show they have absolutely no principles – as long as they can say they “won” it doesn’t matter if they elect a left-wing idiot who’s voting in Democrat policies.
Remember, we warned them about this in the primaries, but no one was listening:
“Now, everybody agrees we get the bad ones out,” he continued. “But when I go through and I meet thousands and thousands of people on this subject, and I’ve had very strong people come up to me, really great, great people come up to me, and they’ve said, ‘Mr. Trump, I love you, but to take a person who’s been here for 15 or 20 years and throw them and their family out, it’s so tough, Mr. Trump.’ I have it all the time! It’s a very, very hard thing.”
This is like… exactly Obama’s policy right now. He says he’s deporting the criminal aliens and allowing the ones who haven’t broken additional laws to stay. Congrats morons!!
As a victim of Trumpers continually transgressing against the definitions of words, I knew eventually that he would misuse the definitions of words to screw them over too. And here we are.
Here’s the first “softening” of Trump yesterday…
