How would you feel if your race/gender/sex/status, etc. was directly attacked by your employer, for the world to hear?
Would you continue to work there and stay quiet or fight back and stand up for yourself? This exact thing happened when Donald Trump went on a rant about illegal immigrants in one of his speeches, specifically targeting Mexico.
As quoted in an article on his plans if elected president, Trump would deport all 11 million undocumented immigrants – including their U.S. citizen children.
“The leading GOP candidate is talking about ferreting out, arresting, and forcibly removing a population of men, women and children roughly the size of the state of Ohio.”
It’s interesting that Donald Trump would take this stance on immigrants when I can guarantee he employs a majority of immigrants in his hotels – for the construction of them, housekeeping, restaurant staff, etc.
In fact, Trump has a project in the works in Washington, D.C. where 15 workers were interviewed by media and they admitted they were in the country illegally.
I wonder how Trump will try to backpedal when people start digging deep on all of his projects and discover who really is working in, and on, his luxury buildings.
Not a surprise but after Donald Trump’s original comments, there was complete backlash. A busboy at one of Trump’s hotel restaurants was brave enough to stand up to this ridiculous “plan” of deportation. He made a short video and posted it on Facebook. The views are now up to over 414,000.
“I was offended because this is not who we are, this is not who I am, this is not anybody I know who is an immigrant.”
Not only were Trump’s comments defamatory to a whole country, his plan would cause a massive headache for citizens of the United States. Everyone would need to be questioned based on the color of their skin, neighbors of these people would be forced to “snitch” and the list goes on and on. There would be complete mayhem in our country to find these so-called undocumented immigrants.
These people have helped Donald Trump become successful. If he didn’t employ them to build or work in his luxury buildings, he wouldn’t be making the big bucks because they wouldn’t exist.
So, as he likes to say it:
Donald Trump (long, dramatic pause)…
