King Trump: Migrants “Very Happy” with Situation in US Migrant Jails


HAVANA TIMES – Donald Trump dismissed widespread reports and video documentation of dire conditions for locked-up migrants over the weekend, saying many border facilities are “clean” and “run beautifully,” reported Democracy Now.

Trump: “In all cases, if you look, people that came from unbelievable poverty, that had no water—they had no anything where they came from—those are people that are very happy with what’s going on, because, relatively speaking, they’re in much better shape right now.”

On Sunday, he accused the media on Twitter of “phony and exaggerated accounts” of migrant detention centers, and again blamed Democrats for failing to enact more effective immigration policies—this despite recent congressional visits to migrant jails and multiple accounts of abuse recorded by legal and other experts.

    Thank you John Bohannon for explaining why it is that the US has the highest level of incarceration in the whole wide world! I had previously believed the US statistics which demonstrate a distinct level of racism both in the duration of jail sentences and frequency. I had not realized that US conditions were so bad that people actually “climb the walls to get in” – is it the quality of food that attracts, or escaping from the US way of life?

    The “American Jails” are the most unusual in the world, people climb walls to get in and if they don’t like it they can walk right out back into Mexico another capitalist country.

    What a stupid comment.

    Ha Ha Ha…
    Mr MacD, enjoyed your comment.
    I must say, for all your labelling of Corbyn as a Marxist, it would seem to be your lot (the unruly Conservatives) who are dragging the good old UK into ever choppier waters.
    I referred to the redoubtable Harold Wilson refusing to kow-tow to the USA on the matter of Vietnam
    On the other hand, I could also refer to your good Mrs T who would no doubt be spinning in her grave at the very thought of anyone in the entire world choosing who they do or do not want as The Queen’s Ambassador to their country.
    I regard myself as British, even though I have spent half my life outside of those isles. My forefathers hail from all four corners of the UK.
    I do not take kindly to the (democratic?) representatives of the the UK kow-towing to trump in this way. Teresa May made sure to scuttle across the pond to hold truump’s hand and be the the first world leader to congratulate him.
    Now he returns this favour by publicly insulting her.
    For all Cuba’s serious faults, it’s leaders do not kow-tow to the USA or to a dick like trump in this desperately sad fashion.
    It would seem that the UK has lost its way somewhat (led on by disreputable right wing politicians who seek to reduce any democratic regulation on their paymasters’ money-making ?).
    One can only hope that corners are turned…..
    If you are suggesting that 60% of the good people of Scotland got it right, then I would wholeheartedly agree.
