Trump defends blocking Bahamian hurricane victims from entering U.S.


-Are you concerned
at all about — -Are you prepared
to offer temporary protected status to people
from the Bahamas? -So, we’re talking to a lot
of different people on that. You know, we’re recovering
from the hurricane, also. Florida did get hit,
not as hard as we anticipated. And you look at Georgia, you look at South Carolina,
North Carolina. I’m going to North Carolina
right now, North Carolina, to have a rally for Dan Bishop,
but before I go to the rally, we’re gonna be stopping
at one of the sites that got hit very hard
by the hurricane. So, we’re also recovering
from a hurricane, but we have to be very careful. Everybody needs totally proper
documentation, because look. The Bahamas had some
tremendous problems with people
going to the Bahamas that weren’t
supposed to be there. I don’t want to allow people
that weren’t supposed to be in the Bahamas to come
into the United States, including some very bad people
and some very bad gang members and some very,
very bad drug dealers. So, we are going to be very,
very strong on that. Let me just explain. Large sections,
believe it or not, of the Bahamas
were not hit, and what we’re doing
is bringing the people to those sections of the Bahamas
that have not been hit. We’ve done a lot of the USAID. We’ve done a lot of work
with our Coast Guard, with our FEMA people,
who have been phenomenal. I mean, they’ve been phenomenal. So, we’ll see what happens.
We’ll see what happens.

    0:34 can anyone help critique this? Is it just some odd coincidence? Did he not just hear himself say the word hurricane? Was he correcting himself? 🍊

    I'm pretty certain that Hurricane Dorian struck every part of the Bahamas Island. We are talking about an Island in the middle of the ocean and a massive category 5 sized hurricane that sat on said Island for more than one day.

    Legalize all drugs because you can't stop it when the need is there, not even a job will stop a junkie, they have to want to stop, we're all adults, those who off themselves are the weakest of the species, we don't need HAARP to wipe out innocent people who have nothing to do with the drug trade…I drank religiously for 20 years and one day I woke up said," I don't want to live like this anymore"..❤️- Praise to The "One" and Only Father-

    There are 50 states you don't have to house them in Florida, Georgia, or the Carolinas. If the Bahamian survivors were all WHITE then Donnie Dementia would be inviting them to the White House for hamberders and KFC. Do you think you would have documentation after 48 hours in a CAT5 hurricane? Donnie tRump you are a racist POS and a national disgrace!

    Oldest trick in the book for "bad people".
    -Move to an island outside the u.s. that your not supposed to be in.
    – Wait for Category 5 hurricane to stall over said islands for a couple days and destroy everything.
    -Get your hidden drugs and other gang related materials and get into u.s. pretending to have nothing (except all those drugs!)
    Hopefully this brave and incrediy clever potus of ours puts an end to this immigration loophole that has been exploited for way too long! (This dumb joke is also way to long….cheers!)

    I've been to Bahamas many times, it's a developed first world country. In fact, per capita its more wealthy than a lot of European countries, but have a relatively small population of 400000. 70000 people were affected, a very big chuck of the total population. So in the immediate aftermath it just makes sense that the US, which is in close proximity, give people a place to stay until they at least get the basics sorted out. If you've ever been to the Bahamas you'd know there would be minimal risk of people trying to use this as an opportunity to get in illegally, they obviously would want to go back home at their earliest opportunity.

    Couldn't we put immigration officials at points to check their possible criminal records and send them back if one exists? We could assist the non-criminals by giving them jobs, which would offset some of the cost and contribute to the economy. How do all Bahamians have proper papers if they lost everything they had?

    If the Bahamas are a British commonwealth, then why aren’t they helping them? If I’m wrong, please correct me , but I haven’t heard anything about the British helping them…. no it’s always on the US’ shoulders to take care of ALL natural disasters. I’m not trying to sound cold, but where were other countries when Katrina hit? Harvey? Any natural disaster here? Didn’t the president just send money and aid to help? I know I personally donated to help the Bahamas, but I guess that means nothing unless we house them too?! SMH at some people! I know if a disaster hit my house; I won’t be calling for any other country to house me.

    Not a trump supporter. Haven’t supported much of anything he has done but he is right on this one. England is making the money off these people and controlling they’re government. I Don’t support the polices Trump has in Mexico because the only way to fix that problem is on the Mexican side of the border. Why is every countries problem an American problem? Let the Monarch in England who exploits these people take care of this problem. Let’s worry about the poor hungry citizens in this country first. We need to sweep our own porch. This thinking has costed us trillions through wars and lost lives of our veterans which you can’t put a price tag on.

    Even by his standards this is pretty callous. The only thing he mentioned about the Bahamas are "criminals and gang members". WTF? Has he even a shred of evidence this is the case? And not a word that most of northern Bahamas has been completely and utterly flattened, erased from the map, and what you might expect given some parts were in the eye walls of a Cat 5 hurricane for a day! There are few structures in the world that can withstand those forces. But nothing about that, it's "criminals and gang members."

    I find it hilarious that on a platform like YouTube where everyone has the anonymity of a fake pseudonym they still have to fake a sense of morality, not one person here has donated to the Bahamas yet criticized others for also not doing anything or for being part of a country with laws. Hurricanes don’t make you American, if it had been a tornado though each one could have got some ruby slippers.

    “Dad I seen on tv it only takes 40 cents a day and we can stop a kid from starving” dad sits down, come here son lets talk. “ why don’t they have food son?” Dad ask passionate about his sons feelings. “ well there poor” the son answers confused by the easy question. “No son they don’t have the resources to grow and produce food and without that first saving one child who grows up in the same conditions gets married and had four kids because he knows three will starve creates four new people that still have no means to help themselves”. Staring to understand the son say “send more money”. Dad sighs but knows this is important so he continues “ we live in a world of finite resources so that money comes from somewhere, eventually that one boy you saved will be part of an entire generation now dependent on foreigners 40 cents a day, but people can’t afford it anymore because they took resources out of a system that was working and put it into a System out of our control that doesn’t work, now almost a million people are starving still in a system that can’t feed one”. I’am that son and have seen first hand how 38 years of pious giving by America has only produced more dependent on that help and a huge 21 trillion dollar bill to show for it. Limit foreign aid and only if it is distributed by American soldiers.

    I don't get this. I am not a Trump's fan but lets be honest. What happens to Bahamas government? Aren't they supposed to have disaster relief plan living on an island with so much risk? Aren't they supposed to rebuild their homes instead of running to another place? Dorian has long been gone it's time to pick up and rebuild. Why must they travel to the U.S. And what are you going to do with these people when they go to the USA.

    Why is it that when there is a disaster, everyone leaves? Seems to me they would need as many as possible to clean up and rebuild. We should be bringing tents, food and desalinization units to the islands along with seabees or the like. Each person leaving takes two hands that could be used to clear trash, rubble, and other manual stuff. We should have done the same thing in Puerto Fredo. Everyone is good for something.

    the US is the first,as always,to give aid to others in times of disaster. the Bahamas own govt was charging $75each for transport off the islands while American transport charged not a dime. Pres Trump is as always,looking out for the safety and health of OUR country. lets not bash him for putting AMERICA FIRST. Of course,we DO have HOMELESS AND HOMELESS VETERANS living on the streets. if thats not a Disaster idk what is. Why arent other countries giving aid to these people who lost everything? I dont have any issues helping them, they lost EVERYTHING. i have issues with giving those illegal invaders help when they LEFT their homes in order to come here illegally.

    3. Food, water, and medicine are already delivered. Carnival Ships are making, and distributing food all day long.
    4. Off shore medical attention is in place.
    5. Bodies are being bagged for identification.
    6. If you want to volunteer in the recovery, then contact Bahamas Government, and make it clear how you wish to help.
    7. Find a legitimate organization, such as" Samaritans Purse", who donates time, money, supplies, and food for people in need 24/7, and open your wallet. Put your MONEY where your mouth is!.

    Damn, a lot of people in the comments sections are idiots. There isn’t anything wrong with making sure the people are not criminals. The President doesn’t want the wrong people coming here; he said people go to the Bahamas to get into the US. Stop trying to make him look like a racist when he isn’t. The left always tries to twist everything around and you people fall for it. You all need to use your brains.
