Trump son blames ‘stagnant’ wages on Syrian refugees
Eric Trump blamed Syrian refugees for stagnant wages.
“My father’s speaking about immigration all week, so I won’t steal his thunder and his fire,” Eric Trump told “Fox and Friends” on Monday morning, as Donald Trump was hurling Twitter insults at MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
“But you know, my father’s immigration plan is pretty simple,” the younger Trump said. “He wants secure borders. You have to know who’s coming into the United States of America. You can’t let people come in unchecked. We have 100 million people in this country that are out of the workforce. Right? I mean we have manufacturing jobs in this country have gone down one-third since 2000. We’re losing jobs across the board, yet people are walking in unchecked and we don’t know who they are. And they could be ISIS.”
Eric Trump said his father wanted to protect Americans and their jobs from foreigners.
“I mean, they should come first — you were born in this country, you were born here legally, you’re here legally,” Eric Trump said. “I mean, wages have been stagnant for the last 15 years and it’s because you have, you know, Syrian refugees coming in. It’s because you have, you know, thousands of people coming over the border.”
