donald trump promised a wave of mass expulsions of migrants if it arrives again the presidency of USAand questioned whether his government would guarantee the NATO security against Russiaduring a campaign event in South Carolina.
Trump welcomed the collapse of the law to address the migration crisis on the border with Mexico and assured that there will be a massive “deportation operation” from his first day in office.
The abandonment of the bipartisan project this week in the Senate American highlighted the tight control of trump on the Republicans, by denying the Democratic President Joe Biden a victory on the hot topic of immigration.
The legislative project also included an additional aid package to Ukraine and Israelwhich will now be treated separately.
“We crushed the corrupt’s disastrous open borders bill Joe Biden“Trump declared at the rally Saturday night.
“On day one I will end all of the Biden administration’s open border policies and begin the largest domestic deportation operation in US history.” USA. We have no choice,” she said.
NATO defaulters without protection
Trump, who frequently rebukes members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) of not adequately financing the alliance, he also maintained that he would refuse to defend any of those countries against Russia, if they were in default.
The former president referred to a conversation with a leader he did not identify during a NATO meeting.
“The president of a big country stood up and asked, ‘Well, sir, if we don’t pay and Russia attacks us, would you protect us?’ And I said, ‘If you didn’t pay, you’ve committed a crime.'” .
“I wouldn’t protect him. In fact, I would encourage Russia to do whatever it wants. It has to pay, it has to pay its bills,” Trump emphasized.
The White House rejected those statements.
“Encouraging invasions of our closest allies by murderous regimes is appalling and deranged,” said spokesman Andrew Bates.
“More than making calls to war and promote chaos, the president Biden will continue to support American leadership,” the spokesperson added.
He NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg He said on Sunday that these statements by Trump “undermine everyone’s security.”
“Any suggestion that allies will not defend each other undermines everyone’s security, including that of USAand exposes American and European soldiers to greater risk,” he stressed in a statement.
He United States Senate will debate next week on the aid package that includes 95,000 million dollars for Ukraine – at war after being invaded by Russia – for Israel’s fight against the militants of the Palestinian Islamist group Hamas and for Taiwan, its strategic ally.
Most of it would be to help Ukraine to replenish depleted supplies of ammunition, weapons and other crucial needs, as the war approaches two years.
On more than one occasion trump has been doubtful and even opposed to continuing with the assistance of United States to Ukraine and has even threatened to leave the NATOif he returns to the White House.
Nikki Haley’s husband
At the rally, trump He also made mocking comments about Nikki Haleyformer governor of South Carolina and her rival in the Republican primaries in which she is far behind.
“Where is your husband? Oh, he’s not there, he’s not there!” she said ironically to highlight that Michael Haley, husband of the Republican candidate, does not accompany her on her electoral events.
“What happened to your husband? What happened to him?” she repeated, making dramatic effects with her tone of voice.
Very distanced from Trump, the former ambassador to the UN responded dryly on the X network.
“Michel is at the service of his country, something you know nothing about. A person who permanently disrespects the sacrifice of the families of the military he has nothing to look for as commander in chief,” Haley said.
Michael Haley marks one year of military deployment in Djibouti, in the Horn of Africa. He also responded to Trump. “The difference between humans and animals? Animals would not allow the dumbest among them to lead the pack,” he also wrote in X, next to a photo of a wolf.
