Trump Combines Cruel Immigration Policies with Broken Promises : A Closer Look


-The Trump administration
has announced a new rule that would limit
legal immigration by imposing a wealth test. For more on this it’s time for
“A Closer Look.” [ Suspenseful theme plays ]
[ Cheering and applause ] ♪♪ Trump has many racist conspiracy
theories about immigrants. He thinks they’re being
funded by shadowy groups. He thinks it’s a plot
to invade America and he’s pretty sure
at least one of his sons snuck in from Transylvania. [ Laughter ]
[as Trump] Secret Service, he’s out of his coffin again. [ Laughter ] Trump also has his insane
theory that other countries are somehow rigging
the visa lottery system, to put their worst people
in the lottery. He’s repeated it many times, including at a rally
earlier this month. -How about the lottery system? [ Booing ] How about lotteries? You put the name in a basket. The country puts the name
in the basket and you pick people
out of the lottery. Well, let’s see,
“This one’s a murderer. [ Laughter ]
This one robbed four banks. This one, I’d better not say. This one,
another murderer.” Ladies and gentlemen,
another murderer. -It sounds like
he’s picking his cabinet. [ Laughter ]
[as Trump] Bank robber. [ Cheering and applause ]
Oh, a murderer. Oh, oh, you guys. [ Cheering and applause ] You guys, we got a cannibal. [ Laughter ] [ Applause ] But, Trump continued. -Think of this: Do you think they’re gonna
put their great citizens? They have great citizens. They have great people,
like we have great people. Do you think those people are
going into a lottery? No. And then, we get
these people coming in. You just take a look. Look at the people they put
into these lotteries. -That’s not how it works. Countries don’t put people
in the lotteries. [ Laughter ]
People enter themselves and it’s not murderers, saying, “The police are closing in! I better make my escape,
by entering a random drawing.” [ Laughter ] This is one of Trump’s favorite
insane conspiracy theories and he’s repeated it countless
times throughout his presidency. -They have a lottery. You pick people. You think the country’s
givin’ us their best people? No. Visa lottery! Visa lottery! Boom. Who is this?!
Who is this? And then, when they turn out
to be not so good, we say, “I wonder why.” Well, maybe the country’s
giving us their worst in those lotteries. Does that make any sense? Think of it: A lottery! You pick people. Now, let me ask you. So, these countries that are
sending people in. Do you think they’re
sending us their finest? And then, we wonder why
we have problems. We’re not going to be a stupid country anymore! -Anh, we’re still very much
the stupid country. [ Laughter and applause ]
Stupid is our brand. Obama made us cool.
You made us stupid. One of the other
problems here is, unlike more complicated terms, Trump thinks he knows
what a lottery is, so, even though he’s wrong,
he’s trying to flex his muscles. I’m surprised he didn’t
just start talking about scratch-offs,
at some point. [as Trump]
And they give you a card and you use a dime, ideally. Worst case, your thumb, and you just start scratching
and, if you get three matching flags,
that’s your new home. [ Laughter and applause ] That’s how it works
in a [bellowing] lottery! A visa lottery. [ Applause ] Trump feeds his supporters
these racist conspiracy theories to make them think
that undeserving immigrants are coming here and draining
our public resources, which is a bigoted lie. And, now, he’s taking that lie
one step further, by implementing a new rule
that will basically institute a wealth test, in order
to limit legal immigration. -A major policy change
by the Trump administration is trying to dramatically limit
legal immigration into the U.S. The so-called public charge rule would make it more difficult
for people who are, again, here legally, but rely on some
form of government assistance. Medicaid, food stamps, housing
vouchers, some of the examples. It would make it harder
for them to get a green card. The new criteria
favors wealthier, more educated immigrants. The National Immigration
Law Center calls the new rule a wealth test on immigrants. [ Rotors whirring ]
-I don’t think it’s fair to have the American taxpayer pay for people to come
into the United States. I’m tired of seeing our taxpayer paying for people
to come into the country and immediately go onto welfare
and various other things, so I think we’re doing it right. -So, now,
you’re suddenly concerned about wasting taxpayers’ money? You’ve already spent more
than $100 million, just on golf trips. [ Laughter ]
And I have one very simple
fix for this. We don’t need to stop
paying for his golf. We just need to stop paying
for his golf cart because just imagine how fast
he would lose interest if he had to walk.
[as Trump] This sucks. [ Laughter ]
I’m gonna play a sport where you don’t have
to move so much, like grass luge. [ Laughter and clapping ] This is fundamentally
antithetical to everything that America’s
supposed to stand for. In fact, that ethos
is famously etched on the Statue of Liberty in the Emma Lazarus poem
“The New Colossus.” Yesterday,
Trump’s acting director of U.S. Citizenship
and Immigration Services, Ken Cuccinelli,
was asked on NPR about that poem and said this. -Would you also agree
that Emma Lazarus’s words, etched on the Statue of Liberty,
“Give me your tired, your poor,” are also part
of the American ethos? -They certainly are. “Give me your tired
and your poor” who can stand
on their own two feet [ Laughter ]
and who will not become a public charge. -First of all, you can’t
just rewrite the poem! [ Laughter ]
Especially a poem on a plaque. Once it’s on a plaque,
it’s the thing. [ Laughter ] The sign says “No smoking,” not “No smoking,
but also smoking.” [ Laughter ] Second, you want them
to stand on their own two feet? Trump can’t stand
on his two feet. [ Laughter ]
Look at him.
He’s like a drunk guy, tryin’ real hard
to pretend he’s sober. [ Clapping ]
Trump is doing this for two reasons:
one, he’s a racist and racism is at the core
of his immigration policy. And two, he can’t deliver
on any of the other promises he’s made to voters. That’s why his administration
inflicts cruelty on desperate migrant families, like when they conducted
the largest single-state immigration raid
in history last week and separated children
from their parents. Meanwhile, he can’t
actually do anything to help the people
he promised to help: the so-called forgotten
men and women of America, the working class
he claimed he championed. He told them he’d fix everything
and that it would be so easy. You know, like healthcare. -We’re gonna get you
something so good. So much less expensive,
so much better. You know what it’s called?
It’s better and less expensive. That’s a good combination. You’re going to have
such great healthcare, at a tiny fraction of the cost,
and it’s gonna be so easy. -As a general rule,
never take advice from a guy in a camouflage hat
with orange font because… [ Laughter ]
it’s a weird choice. I mean, I get the orange,
but not the words, you know? You’ve never seen a hunter
going into the woods in camo gear with bright
orange writing that says, “I am a hunter.”
[ Laughter ] Now, a universal
healthcare system that guarantees healthcare
as a human right is possible,
as many industrialized nations and Democrats running
for president have shown, but Trump made the promise without having any clue
what he was talking about and then, of course,
once it came time to come up with an actual plan, like any con artist,
he tried to talk in circles until people forgot
what he’d promised. This will be a plan where
you can choose your doctor. This will be a plan
where you can choose your plan. -[Chuckling]
-And you know what the plan is? This is the plan.
-Oh my God. He always sounds like
he’s playing Taboo and he can’t think
of a second clue that’s not [indistinct] [as Trump]
Uh, it’s a plan, you know. Like a plan. A plan.
It’s a plan. You know, a plan!
[ Buzzer ] The word was plan.
I was cheating. [ Laughter and clapping ] I was cheating the whole time. Then, there was Trump’s promise
to save manufacturing jobs. During a stop in Ohio
two years ago, he told residents
he would singlehandedly save their manufacturing plants. In fact, he literally told
the people at his rally who were worried about losing
their jobs not to move. -I rode through your
beautiful roads, coming up from the airport
and I was — I was lookin’ at some
of those big, once incredible, job-producing factories. And my wife, Melania, said,
“What happened?” I said, “Those jobs
have left Ohio.” They’re all
comin’ back. [ Cheering and applause ]
They’re all comin’ back. [ Whistling ]
Comin’ back. [ Applause ] Don’t move. Don’t sell your house.
Don’t sell your house. -If Donald Trump, a man
who has gone bankrupt six times and is infamous
for some of the biggest real estate disasters
in history, tells you don’t sell your
house, sell your house. [ Laughter and applause ]
Trump is — Trump is the kind of guy
who would tell people, during a tornado, [as Trump] “You definitely
wanna be by a window. [ Laughter ]
Be by a window, so you can see it.
Sometimes they have cows inside. [ Laughter and applause ] Once again, you’ll
never guess what happened. A plant nearby, in Lordstown,
closed in March. Then, when the cruel reality
of Trump’s empty promises came crashing down on the
workers he promised to help, all Trump could do
was offer a useless tweet. And, once again,
he clearly had no idea how to deliver on his promise. -“Just spoke to Mary Barra,
CEO of General Motors, about the Lordstown,
Ohio, plant. I am not happy that it is closed when everything else
in our country is booming. I asked her to sell it
or do something quickly. She blamed the UAW union. I don’t care.
I just want it open. -Hey, ass[bleep], you told them
not to sell their homes. A tweet whining that you’re not
happy isn’t good enough. It’s like if your buddy told you
to invest everything you have in Bitcoin and, then,
when it crashed, sent you a text that was just a dollar emoji
and a surprise face. [ Laughter and clapping ] Also, what do you mean, “I asked her to do something”? Do what?
You’re the guy who said you were gonna
save the jobs. You’re supposed
to have the ideas. Like a plumber who shows up
and takes a look at your toilet, and then just screams, “Unclog!” [ Laughter ] [ Applause ] By the way, that plant
in Ohio is far from alone. In fact, just two weeks ago,
GM idled another plant in Michigan,
which might come as a shock to people who were
at these Trump rallies in Michigan in 2016. -I’ve been saying:
Your car industry’s being sucked
away from Michigan. It’s happening. If I’m elected,
you won’t lose one plant. You’ll have plants coming
into this country. You’re gonna have jobs again. You won’t lose one plant. I promise you that. [ Cheering and applause ]
I promise you that. So all I say is this:
You wanna build your plant in Mexico,
have a great time. But if you think you’re
gonna ship your product across the border — which will
be a very strong border, by the way —
for no tax, no nothing. So we end up with unemployment and we end up with empty
plants and factories. And you end up with the money,
the jobs, and the plants. You can forget it. And you know what would happen? If you said that right upfront,
nobody’s leaving, folks. You stop it right away. The politicians
don’t wanna say that because most of them are too
stupid to even understand it. -They’re too stupid? Dude, you’re too stupid
to spell the word country, your wife’s name,
and your own name. [ Laughter and applause ]
I mean, imagine if this guy tried meeting his own
immigration standards. He has no discernible skills,
lost $1 billion, and can’t spell his own name. He’d flunk
the citizenship test before he even got
to the first question. [ Laughter ] Trump inflicts cruelty
on desperate migrants fleeing poverty and violence
because, first, he’s a racist and racism is at the core
of his ideology. And second, he’s failed
at literally everything else he’s promised to do. You need a plan
to expand healthcare, save manufacturing jobs. You can’t just do it
by tweeting or yelling at people,
but Trump is… -Too stupid to even
understand it. -This has been “A Closer Look.” ♪♪
[ Cheering and applause ]

  1. Speaking of immigrants "who can stand on their own two feet and who will not become a public charge." Who supports Melania's parents? Who pays for their housing, health, meals and travel? The American taxpayer? Or do they stand on their own two feet?

  2. My mother tells of when she was a young teen in the late sixties and there was standardized pay at the pharmacy she worked at. White males got $1/hr, white females got $.60/hr and minorities got $.35/hr. Ah, the โ€œgood ole days.โ€ ๐Ÿ˜–

  3. Donald Trump has been bankrupt six times but he's not broke anymore. He's a billionaire.

  4. This guy want to give us $1000 every month if he becomes President!!
    https://www.yang2020.com/

  5. If they are actually going to test "wealth", don't you think bank robbers wouldn't have that much trouble paying?

  6. I can't believe people support him…..i can't๐Ÿคš๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„

  7. Ironically, it is white Europeans especially Germans like Trump who I fear most coming into the US and Canada. No more white nationalism and abortion terrorism please!

  8. Is it actually wrong to expect new immigrants to be educated and productive contributors to the society that they are trying to migrate to? The question is how and where we set the bar.

  9. To come to the USA through loterry visa .you have to provide,alot of documents.court and police record.doctor ,military status….so criminals, murders rapicts can't come.he can just ask his wife's and his grandfather or mother.most imigrant they aren't looking for trouble.the just looking for a better future.

  10. you idiot CEO of Microsoft, CEO of Google do these look like worst people to you ?

  11. Trump has no idea how the lottery works. People want to come to America and that's how they enter lottery. He's a fool and those who believe him are just as dumb for believing him.

  12. Pretty sure the presidential breakfast is fully fortified with giant dix…#JS

  13. How exactly do they propose to enact this wealth test, by immigrants showing their taxes? Another thing hypocrite trump wouldn't do….

  14. He is picking his administration cabinets….lol priceless. Which is true..a pedophilia here..an adulterer there..definitely a fraudulent psycho here

  15. Another great example of Trump being a blatant racist 25th amendment this president is clearly unstable and getting crazier day by day itโ€™s time to remove him

  16. Too stupid to understand it, that's his plan, he's been running on STUPID for a very long time now!

  17. Wow, go take a look at the treatment of individuals incarcerated in County Jails. Unbelievable.

  18. Lol the intellectually bankrupt Seth Myers…I read what others tell me…..tell jokes CLOWN, that's your job.

  19. GM closing US plants? memo to Trump GM sells more vehicles in China than in the US. Must be your tariffs.

  20. I canโ€™t wait to vote for Obama again…๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ get trump out bring Obama back ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  22. I applied for the lottery 4 years in a row and never got in. Might try it after next year again. I am a hotel executive with a 6-digit salary, a bachelors degree – and an investor. Was always hoping to manage a hotel in Hawaii or California… but well, got to wait. And I would prefer to see a smarter president to be in charge by that point anyway. This displayed lack of knowledge and straight stupidity is just embarrassing.

  23. So scary looking at the people behind him smiling while he dehumanizes people. Something out of a horror show.

  24. soooooโ€ฆ. Are you gona vote this time America ??! !ย Please do, and show your real colors America !! Signed, Canada !!

  25. Watching these Moronic rally attendees cheer enthusiastically at the syphilitic ravings of our megalomaniacal dictator in chief makes me sick to my stomach. We all want to believe that we live in a nation with a quality educational system, yet it seems we are a country populated with mouth breathing idiots with no capacity for critical thinking. I wonder how many of our nations leaders are going to have to repatriate to South America (Ala German officers in the mid to late 40's) once this mess is cleaned up? I also wonder how many Trump boosters are going to deny ever supporting him ten years from now.

  26. No offense but Trump always seem to always yell when we all have eardrums.(If you know what I mean)

  27. Don't you love the way Trump phrased this….
    "I'm tired of seeing our taxpayers"
    Notice that he doesn't include himself in the statement by saying something like "I'm tired of OUR tax money being used to pay for…"
    When was the last time that he actually paid income taxes? Probably more than 3 decades if not longer.

  28. The only reason President Trump has not fulfilled some of his promises is because these sore losing wino Hillary lovers have been blocking everything he does…… real nice.

  29. The American taxpayers are paying the corporations and millionaires for decades.

  30. sending their worst was literally the beginning of the american colonies

  31. LMAO little seth myers, another privileged snot nose complaining, do nothing for America con man! He is the most feckless nebbish weak show host of all, and that's saying a lot ! These so called, late night hosts are really more like Late Night Whiners.

  32. I should thank Trump, before he was President I felt the days, the weeks, the months go whizzing by me. Now it seems he's been President forever and 2020 is so far away. As for immigrants, Trump says if you don't love and respect your country you should leave, isn't that what all those people on our southern border did?

  33. Wow! I just saw my mother standing behind Trump in one of the clips. I haven't talked to her in over a year and had no idea that she went to a rally with Maga hat and a Women for Trump sign. Wow…just wow.

  34. Donald Trump is sooooo STUPID!!
    The lottery, the walfare, the plan? A complete imbecil!!! If you believe the crap he said, you must be a complete idiot, stupid, imbecil, ignorant. No one gets 8n walfare with out a ssn, no one just put people in there for lottery, and its 3 fucking years for the HC plan. No fucking job had back…… ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  35. He should take the plank out of his eye..while he judges incorrectly. And says things over and over again. He is boring.

  36. Nothing cruel about treating ILLEGAL ALIENS like REAL AMERICANS WHEN THEY BREAK THE LAW, lock them up, and no, the kids don't get to go to jail with mommy & or daddy. You friggin SNOW FLAKES are the weak link in America !!!!

  37. Meanwhile heโ€™s literally selling US passports in China tied to Trump hotel/real estate…

  38. the fact that people appreciate trump's jokes makes me think if these people find human suffering also funny.

  39. Everyone look so confused. He donโ€™t know any better and neither does his supporters. Thatโ€™s so sad. Quit trying to change history for your stupidity. We already choose our own doctor. Dummy.

  40. if by some damn demonic deal he wins re election america is over…. forever …that will be all.the slide has already started it might be stopped or slowed but if this ass clown wins again its over the cliff we go..this country needs some new schooling laws.it should already be so much more than it is and it needs a massive educational re haul .the populace is just to stupid..

  41. How death

    How that girl in red T-shirt is smiling during trumps speech(0:50)๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ

  42. To the residents of the great state of Ohio, I truly emphasize with you. The Moron 45 has made a fool out of millions of people, selling them this dream of collective and isolated greatness. Those jobs were never coming back simply because time has moved on since that industry flourished. The analog concept doesn't work in a 4G world. The MAGA philosophy was destined to fail from the beginning. America was designed to flourish because of it's rich heritage in diversity. So let's M.ake A.mericans G.reat A.ltogether

  43. The ignorant people that can't stand Trump don't realize that the 'left and the 'right' are both controlled from above. They WANT you to hate Trump. They WANT you to believe he is a racist. It's been set up this way for deflection. You're living in Orwell's 1984 without even knowing it. ZOG controls all.

  44. Trump supporters that still support the biggest liar ๐Ÿคฅ in US history are brainwashed buffoons WTH! Just ask his 3 wives if he can be trusted and the porn stars โญ๏ธ!

  45. Aww Donny dumps doesnโ€™t want to go to the summit ? Why cause his boyfriend isnโ€™t gonna be there ? Itโ€™s not an option Donny ! Maybe you should just resign and have Jared fill in for you and run the show ! I like Seth ! I like everyone except dumps ! Oh sheโ€™s fucking breathtaking ! Canโ€™t handle that so much adrenaline ! Canโ€™t describe the feeling itโ€™s unexplainable !

  46. The USA will always be the stupid country, worry not.
    I met one (or two) specimen who kinda just fitted the stereotype wed have in Europe.
    One example: the woman was pregnant and they wanted to make trip to Europe before they have the child. So far so good. They looked up where to go best being pregnant (until almost last week), and chose Balkan and Caucasus. No offense to any of the ex Yogoslawian countries, but we can agree, Sweden has better reputation on halt system stuff… Or other countries.

  47. what doesn't seth get about illegal immigrants? illegal is illegal. I live in El Paso. Yes, the illegals are very bad news!

  48. In the history books it will say : Obama made them look cool, Trump made them look stupid

  49. Wow America "the last hope for a just society " had two choices for president, and both were friends and linked to a child sex trafficker !!! somebody please tell they were clueless

  50. I think he means raffle ticket..and yes, it's like he was talking about his own election. Our President will be badass when they boycott Israel and Saudi Arabia, ..boot out the duel citizen Israelis..and keep them out of our country and government.

  51. It's actually common for hunters to wear orange so it's easy for other hunters to spot hunters

  52. why should I put my name on a lottery, for a country that have expensive health care, no maternity leave, no paid days for holidays, and all the violence in the world?

  53. What was Melania? A murderer or a bank robber. Or was she the one he "better not say". Prostitute maybe?

  54. With all kinds of achievements China has shown to the world, pls Ask yourself, when was the last time you heard or read something positive about China, don't you think something goes wrong in our so-called free-media ??????To find another window of this World you may click: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wdxPcmSWBXQ

  55. You know not one country on this planet would take that jackass even if he gave them all $1000 of his fortune.

  56. Seriously? You're saying Trump is wrong because of what's written on the statue of liberty and that's what represents American values? The times have changed. Instead, you should have said that immigrants contribute more $ in taxes than they receive in benefits.

  57. 8:01 the reaction by the two ladies is golden. Thank me later

  58. The most obvious thing T-rump brought out is how many poorly informed, minimally educated humans inhabit this county. One of the most discouraging realisations ever.

  59. Trump talks about immigrants earning their keep, trump owes us for the 109 million he spent on golf not to mention all the trips we pay for all of his grown kids that travel with him…
    He doesn't work all he does is watch TV, golf n tweet, earn your stay in this country…oh and what about your immigrant wife and in laws, what do they do to stick around?

  60. What level of brain damage do you need to have to think this orange turd is a good leader?

  61. The very old misconception that money is directly proportionate with "good." If you look at the countries from which the lottery candidates come, you are likely to find the exact opposite. Ask how a person makes his/her money before you call it good.

  62. "Obama made us cool, Trump made us stupid"

    You were always stupid, Trump just made you realise it. The rest of the world has known for decades ๐Ÿ™‚

    …..it's a jooooooke. On a comment page on a joooke show.

  63. I fucking tired of tax payers paying for the bankruptcies of wealthy white man, but that didn't fucking stop dumpf, 6 times.

  64. The caravans were arranged by Trump who kept saying they were coming for months BEFORE they started their journey. Trump needed to be justify because he was being MOCKED

  65. Am I the only one who sees that mr dump has 2 completely different colors on his head? What the hell is on his head ? ( I already know thereโ€™s nothing โ€˜inโ€™ his head)

  66. How do these stupid people sit through his bs, smiling and clapping. Unfathomable! And the pink "Women for Trump," signs. What woman in their right mind could support this racist pervert? They need their heads examined! Women are supposed to be nurturers. Women who support him obviously need to get in touch with the compassion in their hearts.

  67. the damage left behind from that pig will haunt you for years.. good luck America

  68. 6.43 this with healthcare was full of bullshitt from sneaky trump obama health care was ok most of country population was insured now by trump presi people are not insured

  69. omg, into the 2nd minute and Seth kills it with "it sounds like he's picking his cabinet"…OMG That was friggin Hilarious! Thanks for making me burst out laughing. Damn I haven't laughed so hard in so long…Thank You Seth you truly are one gifted comedy writer!

  70. This dude is lying on their faces, the coal industry never came back why would the factories be any different.

  71. The Tangerine Turd doesnt understand tariffs. . . what makes anyone think he grasps lotteries.

  72. Please notice that Trump is saying (or Lying is what us sane people call it) that these so called immigrants are wasting Taxpayers money. Not Us Taxpayers but taxpayers; implying that it doesn't effect him. Probably because he barely pays any.

  73. Trump has been the worst and most stupid idiot CRIMINAL !!! He 's been screwing Americans, sexually assaulted American women, raped their girls, not releasing his tax!! What other crimes has he and his family members committed!! Immigrants never ever have such large number of CRIMES!!

  74. He had first class experience with a couple of his wives maybe he knows what he is talking about. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

  75. The only reason why trump has kids in jail and did all this to immigrant people who still pay taxes is because he used hate the hate that even Hispanics have against there own race to motivate heโ€™s hate , and heโ€™s way to president, shame on all of the people are racist, because when Harvey hit I saw all colors come together and helping each other ,color did not matter then so why now

  76. It's incredible how people still don't realize who's the president. Most Caucasians have always shown to win the golden award to be Air heads, they always have to be fighting with someone If not the Latinos the Black, Chinese ect.

  77. I remember when this used to be kind of a funny show… it's turned into a liberal screed against Trump.
