FULL TITLE: 'I'm tired of seeing our taxpayer paying for people to come into the country and immediately go on to welfare.' Donald Trump defends his move to ban immigrants on food stamps from getting green cards
Donald Trump offered his first defense of his new policy that cracks down on immigrants on food stamps seeking green cards, arguing tax payers should not have to pay for people to come into the country and 'immediately go on welfare.'
'I'm tired of seeing our taxpayer paying for people to come into the country and immediately go on to welfare and various other things,' the president told reporters in New Jersey where he is spending a few weeks at his Trump National Golf Course Bedminister. 'I think we're doing it right.'
He noted: 'I don't think it's fair to have the American taxpayer. It's about Americans first. It's not fair to have the American taxpayer pay for people to come into the United States.'

Can’t wait to see how the MSM finds something racist about this.
An honest media would agree with him and suggest that people can use their OWN money for causes like this.
Best President EVER!
Everyone with 2 brain cells has to understand that the generous welfare benefits that the left showers on illegal immigrants is the main reason the whole world wants to come here legally and illegally.
The left hates Donald Trump so bad because he states the obvious truth and will not back down and makes the open borders grifters look ridiculous.
Trumps one comment alone is probably worth 500K votes.
Let's be honest, if all the immigrants, illegal or otherwise, voted overwhelmingly Republican, the Democrats would shut the border down so fast it would make your head spin.
A few WEEKS? Can't the media do anything accurate?
The BESTEST President, ever!
I know a lot of legal immigrants and they are not voting for any of the current jackals...
they are voting for Trump out of fairness...
You an' me both, Mr President. Put an end to it. Deport illegals and welfare leeches. Build the wall. MAGA!
well, he’s right
aside from genuine refugee cases, it used to be to get into USA you had to show you could take care of yourself (or had someone commit to do so..) so you would NOT become a public charge (at which time, you were subject to repatriation)
we used to have a number of policies that were correct and which worked rather well....
‘I’m tired of seeing our taxpayer paying for people to come into the country and immediately go on to welfare.’
A pro-American President. Refreshing change.
One single taxpayer?
Repeated enough his comment won re-election.
